Hakam came to Ashbury College in grade twelve from Haileybury College in England. He is commonly
known as "Hak" or "Hak Baby" to others.Hak's deep love and concern for functions, calculus, and other
realities of life has resulted in endless. sleepless nights for this I.B. survivor. Hak will be known as the
mysterious guy in the little red G.T.I. - which was frequently seen circling around Elmwood. He may seem
like the serious, intellectual type. but is. in fact, nothing close to that. Some of us will remember the get-
togethers. Now he leaves the "hallowed halls" of Ashbury, hoping to major in Civil Engineering at U. of
To. He leaves us with this quote: "Life is a puzzle . , . solve it."
larinitlt was born in Montreal, but has lived for the past thirteen years in Ottawa. He has been at Ashbury
for the past tive years. He enjoyed the international atmosphere of the school, the small classes and Mr.
Pelletier's in-class conversation. Yannick was a member of the Senior Soccer team for two years. He also
participated in swimming. tennis and cycling. Among his highlights is the l986 Senior Soccer trip to the Lee
Tournament "into the jungles of the Amazons". Next year he is going into International Studies and even-
tually into International Law at Trent. U.B.C.. or Dalhousie.
Sarah 'x first and last year at Ashbury have had many high lights, such as gambling in the Common room.
driving vans up ski slops - and succeeding in getting to the top. Sarah has found the change from a public to a
private school strange. and difficult at first, but has fit into the Ashbury social scene very well. indeed. She
particularly enjoys the personal atmosphere and the small class size: she leaves us with this quote: "When
the river of life seems to flow too quickly. grab an inner tube and jump in." H. Gildas, of The Slugs.

Alan, having survived seven years at Ashbury. is looking forward to freedom. "looking forward to looking
back." Alan enjoyed two years of senior football. with the most inspirational coach. "No cheap shots"
Grisco. Alan has also participated in the hockey and basketball teams. A special memory is the 86 trip with
the hockey team to Europe. Alan's favourite music includes Big County, The Cult, and The Alarm. He
would like to close with this thought: "So who will know where they come from, who raised up swords for
those who died?"
Stuart Adamson. Big Country.

with his pal Andy Mac in Philosophy. extinguishing a deadly blaze in the library. Chemistry with Doc' Hop.
Senior Soccer and Bascktball. He would also like to note that one of the greatest injustices in the school is
that too many people foolishly fail to recognize Mr. Weintrager as the best coach Ashbury has , , . Ayman
departs onthe following note: "The ultimate human freedom is the ability to choose one's attitude in a git en
set of circumstances." Vic Frankel
Douglas leaves us with these ruminations: "Oh sure I learned something, That being. No matter where you
go. there you are . . Qu'est ce que Booby Do?"
Roh has been a veteran of Ashbury and will doubtless shed a tear at graduation day. Rob has participated ac-
tively on various sports teams. including football and hockey. Among highlight, he includes the '86 trip to
Europe with the Hockey Team. Academically. Rob will remember Mr, Conrad's Classics tirades. He plans
to attend university next year in an Arts programs Good luck Roh!
Susan came to Ashbury in grade eleven. and miraculously survived the first terrifying term. Grad twelve
was a reliefas she wormed her way out ofthe math program to take four languages. She participated in choir
and cross-country skiing every year, and in grade thirteen she supervised the Computer room. She was the
senior member of the Three Musketeers, and was known as the shortest girl in the school. She was happy to
come and is even happier to leave. She gained a lot of self-confidence and is almost ready to face the real
world. She would love to go on a world tour lany offers! next year, but will likely go to Algonquin instead
for translation. 'AOne pound of knowledge requires ten pounds of common sense to apply it." Anon,
Andrew leaves us with two pithy quotes:
"Our future may lie beyond our vision, but it is not completely beyond our control."
Robert F. Kennedy
"He always runs while other walk. He acts while other men just talk, He looks at his world and wants it all,
So he strikes like thunderball
In the seven years that Andrew has been at Ashbury he has stared in horror at the standard set by society. but
has tried to tit in anyway . , , He has enjoyed volleyball and swimming as relaxing, non-competitive sports.
Classics. History and Business courses because they allow one to be more an individual in one's views.
Ashbury has been a great influence on his views toward authority, society, and school uniforms. The small
size ofclasses has allowed for better relationships with the teachers tmost of them!! Andrew leaves us with a
quote from Aeschylus' Oresleiu: "No one takes me in with visions - senseless dreams."
Andrew came to Ashbury in grade eight and has since discovered that he couldn't wait to graduate. His ma-
jor highlights of a glorious six year career include the various classes he enjoyed with buddies. such as Elfar,
Dilawri. Crockett, Chattoe. Desrochers. Chapdelaine, Boswell, etc, rooming with Blair Snyder. and Lucy's
eighteenth birthday party. Andy participated in both hockey and football for tive years each and found that
Mr. Bercuson taught him more about sportsmanship than he ever thought possible. Andy plans to attend
Bishop's next year with a major in "sosh".

a new school. but as September and October slid by. Erik found himselfenjoying his new school more and
more, We all watched him play soccer in the Fall and basektball in the Winter. As a student and an athlete.
Erik has become well rounded. Erik has also told us how much he enjoys Ashbury and the people he has mel

This was Margo 's talias. Margott'st Hrst and last year at Ashbury. She quickly found way around the
routine. being previously from Alben College. But, when in times oftrouble. she turned to her good friend.
KD. who was almost always there to help. Unfortunately basketball was not offered to the ladies at
Ashbury. so Margo turned to rowing and volleyball. The highlight of the year for Margot was Elfar im-
itating "Weino" U2 playing basketball. Many thanks to Lucy for having a binhday, to Andrew for being
there. and to the rest of the grads.
Ask us. ask us, whether with the worldless rose our hearts shall fail us come demanding whether there shall

boarder. he boarded at Upper Canada College for two years. The Junior School was most enjoyable. with
Mr. Discombe and Mr. Valentine being his greatest influences. Senior School. howexer, has been much
more to Pawan's liking, with Mr. Niles as his saviour. He has had many' highlights throughout his years at

ploiting his natural penchant for cynicism. Declan have won grade nine English and History prizes. and the
grade ten English prize. He enjoyed his conversations with Mr. Jansen Mr, Zrudlo's distorted views of

fling Paul has gone about his way gently and thoughtfully. His presence in the flats will be missed. Good
Yiimi is the product of seven years of Ashbury life. Even though his sanity has left him long ago. he has
many memories to keep him going in the years ahead. The adventures ofthe Benk-busters. roomraids. Fri-

well as Mr. Discombc. and his two years as half of the ever-lasting couple. He leaves with his favourite say-
ing. "The only guarantee in life is that you'll love."

ln the one year that Donna has spent at Ashbury. there have been many activities and times that she will
remember - staying up all night to study for tests, or, the excitement of having made the basketball team. She
will also look fondly back to curling season tall the more interesting as D. still can't curl!!J. Other highlights
include early mornings and the constant smiles and encouragement. Thanks to all her coaches. Most impor'

Donna came to Ashbury this January for the duration of her grade thirteen year. She states: "Nothing can
express the overwhelming feeling of pride I have towards being a pan of Ashbury society. It gave me a
chance to succeed. which had almost slipped away. For this reason I am eternally grateful." Donna leaves
us with a poem:
To be able to rise from the earth
to be able. from a station in outer space.
to see the relationship of the planet earth to other planets.
to be able to comtemplate the billions of vectors
in precise and beautiful combinations.
to be able to dwell on an encounter of the human soul with the universe -
all this enlarges the human horizon.
Roger 's life at Ashbury has been full of many trials. but overall, he is happy that he decided to come here.
High points include playing hockey and football for the Senior Teams. For all his help throughout the 86-87
season, Roger would like to thank his math teacher, Mr. Stableford. Roger takes pride as a . . . "powerful,
turbulent and menacing" member of the All Mighty Poingsy Pile-On Team. Roger shook the New Wing
with his innovation. seeking out new forms of excitement and humour.
Although Debbie has been at Ashbury for only a year, she has made a lasting impression on us all. Debbie
has miraculously managed to become attached to Shawn Hamilton. and ifanyone ever asks them about their
time together, "We were just washing the pots. really!" Debbie leaves us with a poem about Ashbury's
modern heating system:
There once was a room
Which could've been on the moon
For the amount of heat it was getting.
When it was cold,
It was very. very cold
But when it was hot,
It was sweating.

The 1986 session of the senior football team was one
that made it through a fantastic season with determina-
tion, good execution of plays and very hard training.
The season started on a good note with many people
showing up for the tryouts ofthe team. but the success of
the team was really uncertain considering that we only
had 8 veterans from the previous year. Nevertheless we
discovered so much talent among the new members
which helped us greatly.
We ended the season with a record of 6 wins and one
loss. thanks to our amazing and well trained defence that
allowed only 12 points in the first 6 games which
resulted in wins. This year's team was a perfect example
of how much we can accomplish with strong detemiina-
tion: considering the fact that most of the teams we
played were bigger in number, size and skill.
I would like to thank all the members of the team who
had the courage and dedication to play on the senior
football team, showing up for practice every day after
school no matter how much it might interfere with their
private lives. Above all I would like to thank the coaches
- Mr. Grey, Mr. Deacon and Mr. Gerisco for outstan-
ding coaching. They are the ones who are responsible
for the determination, strategies and hard training that
led us to a season that came so close to being perfect.

For the last three years. the Senior Soccer Team has
experienced winning percentages of-1-W, 32 Wi and 502'
respectively: coming after averages ot' 69? and 7-VZ in
my lirst two years at the school, one would hope that last
season's record ot'27 goals tor and I9 goals against will
be the beginning ofa new norm: I like to win and so do
In fact. a second look at this year's record yields some
memorable moments. In the L.C.C. Tournament. for
example. Ashbury won two and lost one, while the "B"
Division playoffs ofthe O.H.S.S.A. led to a thrilling
final in which our players hit the posts four times. with
the other team shooting once on our goal - and scoring!
In that game our team showed a mental and physical
preparedness that was wonhy of a division title.

BANTAM FOOTBALL TEAM
.,,, , . 1.0 1
The Bantam Football Team progressed in skill and
strength throughout the year. The season opened with a
loss against a very tough Loyola team. The players did
not come together, but in the next game managed a close
win against L.C.C. The defence finally clicked and
played an outstanding game at B.C.S. The team was
hungry for the second meeting against Loyola but some
sloppy plat and costly mistakes put Ashbury down early,
although DAVID CLightning Boltj LIANG, scored twice
on a defence that had not allowed a point to that date.
The offensive line, led by MAX STOREY and MAT-
THEW BOSWELL, displayed steady improvement and
was at its best for the last two games. This was a tremen-
dous help to the offensive backfield, made up of
STEWART JOHNSTON, at QB, EMMANUEL UHM
at flanker, CHARLES tChicoD DENDY, STACEY
BLEEKS and DAVID LIANG at running back who
amassed 50 points in those final two games. Further-
more the defence stunned their opponents by shutting out
both L.C.C. and B.C.S. The team benefitted immensely
from the experience of the older players and good, tough
coaching by Mr. MacFarlaen, Mr. Stableford and the
team motivation JOHN fGumbyJ SCOLES.

IUNIOR SOCCER TEAM
The under l6 Soccer team began its season with a tourna-
ment at Bishop's College School in Lennoxville. Quebec.
After drawing our first two games against L.C.C. and
Selwyn House, we played two very strong games against
Stanstead and B.C.S., winning both by a score of 3-0.
Despite the fact that the team was undefeated. and had no
goals scored against. the toumament was won by L.C.C.
who had 3 wins and one tie.
The Ottawa High-School League seemed to pose more
difficulty for the squad than the private schools. Although
we were a very strong defensive team throughout the
season. defence alone does not win soccer games. Many
games were tied or lost despite out-playing and out-
shooting our opponents. The problem was that we could not
put the ball in the net more than once. in almost all our
league games. Despite this. the team still had some very
strong performances. A close game against Ridgemont, a
tie against Hillcrest and a come-from-behind win against
St. Pat's demonstrated the potential the team possessed.
Overall. the team ended up with 5 wins. 5 losses and 4
ties. More importantly. however. was the remarkable im-
provement in soccer skills and team-play exhibited by all
the team members throughout the season. It was an en-
joyable and successful season. On behalf of all the team
members, I would like to thank Mr. Anderson and Mr.
Grainger for their time and support.

What can we say about this year's tennis team that hasn't already appeared in a Rex Reed tilm review? "Superb!" "ln-
credible!" "A Must See!"
This year's tennis season proved to be one of the most successliil in the team's history. During we posted an enviable
match record of 4-l-lg our only loss coming from a very powerful Glebe team.
This record was good enough to get us into the City Finals. The joint team of Ashbury and Elmwood competed against
tive other schools during two days of non-stop tennis. For the "B" team. both the doubles team ofjim Bononiley and
Frank Hollington, and the mixed doubles team of Mike Lederman and Julie Coulson reached the semi-finals. but lost.
For the "A" team, almost everyone reached the semi-finals. Lisgar ended up winning the tournament. but Ashbury
finished 4th in the city: I believe our best showing ever. Many thanks to Mrs. Knap, and especially Mr. Conrad. for
their needed support. Our thanks also go to all those who came out to cheer us on.

SENIOR HOCKEY TEAM
l l - L
The Senior Hockey Team enjoyed a successful season
this year. Under the enthusiastic coaching of Mr. Valen-
tine, the troops were assembled, and with an even mix of
veterans and rookies, we ended up with a fine record of
ll wins, 6 losses. and 3 ties. Most of our games were
played in the Ottawa Board High School Hockey
League, and though our league record was not great, we
played very well in the playoffs against Champlain.
They had lost only one game all season, but we gave
them a good run for their money. We won the first
game. tied the second, and lost the third in a four point
series. Thus the stage was set for the final game, each
team having accumulated three points. After two periods
Champlain lead 3-O. and we seemed destined to be
destroyed. But in the third peirod we came back and
scored four quick goals, only to lose the game 5-4 in the
dying minutes of the game. Champlain eventually won
the League Championship.
The other event in our season was the Annual L.C.C.
Toumament for the Ashbury Cup. We played well and
won our first two games convincingly to advance to the

The N86-87 edition of the Senior Basketball Teatn of
Ashbury' College more than achieved most of its objec-
tives during this season. The regtilar season play had its
moments of less than ideal play and results. But when
necessary the team was able to put past difficulties
behind thetn and play up to a level that was above the
early season expectations. A low point occurred in the
middle of January with loses to Rideau 445-633 and to
Immaculate t-13-50i which put in jeopardy entry into
playoff. However a most impressive win over the St.
Joseph team guaranteed a play-off' position. This par-
ticular game and a tournament in mid-February were im-
portant in setting the team for excellent play in post-
The semi-final games against lmmaculata were well-
played. but at the same time. very different two games.
ln the first game at lmmaculata the Ashbury team show-
ed a great sense of poise and patience and let the opposi-
tion make all the errors. Therefore in the fourth quaner.
Ashbury had fifteen foul shots and converted on ten of
them, and the other twelve points in that quarter were all
scored on by lay-ups. A most impressive single quarter
of Basketball. the Ashbury team scored twenty-two
points and limited the opponents to only eight. The se-
cond semi-final game against Immaculata was a most
poorly played game with seven of the opposition com-
mitting twenty-seven fouls and again in the final quarter.
Ashbury had nineteen foul shots and made ten of them
and the margin of victory for us was eight points.
The three games for the Ottawa High School Cham-
pionship. played at Carleton University. were supported
by the whole school in a manner that I had never
witnessed in twelve years of coaching. The student body
and the staff were absolutely incredible in their support
and enthusiasm and this encouragement was greatly ap-
preciated by Lhe team. This support went a long way in
helping in the first game against Laurentian with a 62-49
victory and in the second game in a 45-50 defeat. All the
support only made the game loss more difficult to take.
but still the whole school was certainly involved.
l have difficulty espressmg my' admiration and pride
in the members of lllfs basketball team. Sunday practices
were accepted and attended faithfully. The difficult
losses were considered to be team losses. lltil blamed on
individuals and accepted with sportsmanship. The ef-
forts, works and carmg ol llelena Stuart and Karen
Hamad were major factors m the building of a llitisl
positive team spirit. liolll young ladies leave with my
thanks and best wishes. The dedication and work of liric
Wilson. Peter Mountford. Ayman lilfar. Rob Hender-
son, and Omar Kitchlew made my task of coaching easy
and a pleasure. Mark Cantor w as absolutely tremendous
in his leadership as captain both on and olili the court. No
team could ask for a more dedicated leader.
My thanks to the whole team for a season of many.

SECON D HOCKEY TEAM
The Junior Hockey Team began the 86-87 season with
high hopes and expectations. The team was made up of a
mixture of players from grades nine to thirteen with the
majority coming from the lower grades. Our hopes were
dashed, however. when the league we were hoping to
join fell through. leaving Ashbury looking for any team
to play. We soon became known as the Ashbury "no-
games" after several cancellations or teams showing up
with four or five players.
Our "season" began with the Under 16 Selwyn House
Hockey toumament in Montreal. The tournament
brought teams from Montreal, Toronto. Ottawa and
Boston, The calibre of hockey was superb. and due to
the very young average age of our players, we were out-
sized and outplayed in both our matches. We lost both
games by scores of 9-3 to Appleby and Lakefield.
After a record 12 straight practices without a "gen-
uine" game. we played a team from St. Andrews. In this
case we were the stronger team, overpowering them 10
to 3. This game was followed by a game against McAr-
thur high school in which we lost 9-5, and a game
against Jacques Cartier, which we lost 6-4. Pierre
Heroux played a fantastic game in netsg unfortunately,
however. he was playing for Jacques Cartier!
Mr. Grainger made all our practices fun with a lot of
scrimmages, and the players really did not mind the lack
of games. So ended the season of "no-games", and the
last Junior Hockey Team to play for Ashbury. Special
thanks to the coach and to our manager, Lisa Spencer,
for their time and efforts.

Curling -just the mention of the sport evokes yawns
and groans from people - especially in Monday morning
announcements. Those of us tslightly insane peoplel
who take up the sport, however. find great excitement in
hurling those rocks down the ice, and this year's team
was no different.
In the beginning. there was Sean Stevens and Ali Bell
as alternating lead and second, myself as third and Darin
Foy as skip. Right from the start we were a shaky team -
never consistent. For instance, in the Ottawa Leagues,
we once were victorious 6-3. but could turn around and
lose 19-0 in the next game. Our inconsistency was
especially apparent in the Gore Mutual, where we were
quickly eliminated, and at B.C.S. where we started
strong. winning 3 games. but then losing the next day.
and placing second. With that. Christmas came tthank
God!! and we left, the Coach shaking his head in
desperation and the team licking its wounds.
The New Year saw some changes. mainly the replace-
ment of Bell and Stevens with Kari-Michael Helava as
lead and Randy Stringer as second. With new found con-
fidence the team went on to the Selwyn House Indepen-
dent Schools Bonspiel. Though there was some lack of
communication with the new members, we came
through with 4 wins and a tie, establishing for Ashbury,
the first record on the Selwyn House Trophy of two
I'm leaving Ashbury now, but given the chance,
would like to thank on behalf of the teamfsi: Mr.
Thomas for his patience and self-control during our
sometimes wildfmoody games, as well as Mr. Anderson
for his support of this rag-tag bunch. I would also like to
thank the girls' team for some most interesting practice
games and for being so cheery. To the students who
have to listen to curling announcements on Mondays,
take heart. Darin's only here for one more year! To
Darin and next year's curling team . . . Good Luck!
You'll need it!

Yet another year ofchange and progress in the musical
life of the school has passed . . . new staff. new
ensembles and more performance opportunitites com-
bine to make it an interesting and extremely enjoyable
We were fortunate to have Peter Dyson. a music stu-
dent from England, as an assistant for the year. Peter
played the organ. accompanied the Senior Choir. coach-
ed ensembles and taught piano. When asked about his
best and worst moments in the music department Peter
was tactfully' non-committal. But its a safe guess that the
sound of Bruce Neugebauer going full blast on the drums
and the shock of hearing Bach played by a saxophone
quartet will figure quite high on his list of Ashbury
memories! We thank Peter for sharing his considerable
talents with us and wish him success in his studies at the
London School of Music and in his future music career.
Congratulations too on his appointment as organist at the
Kensington Palace Chapel.
Some of the musical highlights of the year included the
first Senior School concert in November when the
Ashbury Jazz Band gave its debut perfomiance. The
Junior and Senior choirs once again sang splendidly at
the Carol services. Both choirs also took part in a special
St. David's Day T.V. service which was organized by
Alan Thomas. In April the Senior choir and some
members of the Senior band participated in the Toronto
Independent Schools Music Festival. tsee separate
reportj Ashbury musicians gained a number of first and
second places in the Ottawa Music Festival at the end of
April. A list of the winners appears elsewhere in the
The Spring concerts of the Senior and Junior schools
both occurred ton cuel on the two warmest days of the
year! lt was so hot and humid for the Junior concert the
piano keys went on strike - more precisely would not
strike at all! Mr. McLean had to take a crash course on
the DX7 sy IIlilCSllL'l'. Another notable feature of the
Junior concert was the great number of band students
who performed so admirably ttnder the direction of Mr.
Brookes and Mr. Merritt. 'fheit' enthusiasm and that of
all the students in the lull school singing of Swingin'
Samson was matched only by the endurance of the large
audience packed into the Argyle Halll The Senior conf
cert was very well received by a capacity audience who
gave not only one bttt two standing ovations. The first
was for a highly entertaining performance ofGersnwin's
Rhapsody in Blue by duo pianists Motomasa Mori and
Ken lisaka. The Jan band's confident and exciting play-
ing also brought the audience to it's feet a second time.
The concert also featured soloists, ensembles. the Con-
cert band and the Senior choir who gave an excellent
perfomiance of Broadway songs.
Congratulations and thanks to all the students and
teachers who worked so hard and long to make the year
such an enjoyable and successful one.
On the weekend of the founh and fifth of April this
year. members of the senior school choir and band at-
tended the Independent Schools Music Festival in
Toronto. As in previous years. it was difficult to
organize our participation in what is increasingly becom-
ing a festival primarily for schools in the Toronto area.
However. we finally did get there and. after two days of
rehearsals. the concen. held in Roy Thomson Hall on
the Sunday night. went very well. particularly the finale.
Many thanks to Crescent School for billeting us. and to
Mr. Tanod for organizing the trip.

THE LANGUAGE EXCHANGE
On Febniary 28, 1987, an exchange of students took place marking the first link between the Seminaire
de Sacre Coeur and Ashbury College. Todd and I both spent three weeks at each other's school. studying in
the regional language and practising our accents. It was an opportunity to experience first hand. the life of
an Ontario student and also the life ofthe Quebecois. The idea was simple, 'Vivre en Francais pour Todd et
Vivre en Anglais pour moi', and our successful achievement was very much to our advantage. We have
made ourselves better Canadians as we have observed and participated in the differing lifestyles and
cultures of Ontario and Quebec. English and French. I strongly recommend that students think seriously
about participating in this profitable and rewarding experience. Special thanks to the teachers and students
involved and I look forward to meeting the next group of 'voyageursf

Je suis tres tier d'avoir participer a un echange aussi merveilleux que celui-ci. Meme si les deux institu-
tions sont extremement differente. il n'y a pas eu de difficulte d'apprentissage. Au contraire. a cause de la
courte duree de l'echange. les eleves du Seminaire ont ete tous tres acceuillants. amicaux et comprehensif.
L'echange a ete une reussite totale car a mon retour a Ashbury. j'ai remarque une importante amelioration
dans ma langue seconde. Je me rappellerai toujours des merveilleux souvenirs de Pointe-au-Chene, des pro-
fesseurs, des eleves et de la fete qu'ils m'ont donne a mon depart. Je suis. ala fois. tier et honore d'avoir ete
le premier a vivre cette experience de vie etj'ai hate de voir si les autres echanges seront aussi reussi que

"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."
The Spring production of "One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest" by Theatre Ashbury was an unqualified
success, thoroughly appreciated by each of the sold-out
houses that had the good fortune to see it. The choice of
such a widely-read work evoking such strong emotions
was inspired. Dale Wasserman's taut and faithful script
captured the graphic characters, the constantly changing
pace and the atmosphere of insanity and paranoia found
in Ken Kesey's superb novel. The difficult play was
brilliantly staged by Directors Greg Simpson and Alex
Menzies, ably assisted by Owen Matthews.
Supported by technical excellence in light, sound,
costuming and make-up, the disciplined and energetic
cast was a pleasure to watch. No doubt the experience of
visiting a real psychiatric ward in Brockville allowed
some of the actors to acquire a realistic perspective on
the world of the insane. Suspension of disbelief was
complete, and the audience was genuinely horrified by
the dramatization of Electroconvulsive Therapy and the
dark delusions of some of the patients. While previous
efforts such as "Lord of the Flies" featured a large
number of character behaving as a collective entity,
"Cuckoo's Nest" had large number ofindividual minor
characters. This rich group of distinct and eccentric per-
sonalities added depth to the drama. In the midst of these
characters, three major figures dominated the action.
'Randle P. McMurphy' as portrayed by Doug Fyfe
was the brash and vivacious protagonist who assumes
the leadership of the psychiatric ward and proceeds to
challenge the authority of the institutional system per-
sonified by the Head Nurse. The main character even-
tually makes the ultimate sacrifice for his convictions.
With a commanding presence, Fyfe conveyed the in-
dependant spirit and iron will of his character. The actor
managed to make the difficult transition from his initial
personality, that of the volatile and irreverent rebel, to
that of a tragic figure - with grace and ease.
Stephanie Haffner played the manipulative and
domineering 'Nurse Ratched' with great skill, although
she was sometimes overshadowed by the vociferous
'McMurphy! The difficulty inherent in this character is
that she must be at once courteous and composed while
conveying her true personality, that of the feared 'Big
Nurse', a figure of power and authority.
'Chief, the silent and terrified Indian who provides the
audience with insight in his monologues, was superbly
acted by Gay Furgusson. With the help of McMurphy,
the 'Chief' regains his lost self-respect. dramatically
escaping in the play's final scene. Some of the best
moments in 'Cuckoo's Nest' consisted only of this single
tormented figure explaining the machinations of the
asylum and society in terms of a dark and nebulous force
known as the Combine.
Theatre Ashbury's performances constantly seem to
improve in quality and professionalism. Perhaps this is
due to the accumulation of experienced student actors,
whose abilities are honed by each consecutive produc-
tion in which they participate. "One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest" was an excellent, disturbing and
thought-provoking entertainment with the human spirit
realistically portrayed on the border of survival. There is
a tendency for college productions to receive undue
praise and recognition within their individual com-
munities - to do otherwise would be less than tactful,
However, Theatre Ashbury compares favourably with
my limited experience of professional companies, and
certainly surpasses most other High School productions.
All involved should be congratulated for their effort and
Excerpt fromi Drama Critic Charles Haines
April 30. l987
. . . Last Thursday I looked into another production, this one by Theatre Ashbury. whose work with
young actors I have reported favorably on a couple of times already in the past few years. Theatre
Ashbury has done it again with "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" by Dale Wasserman. now on at
Ashbury College. "One Flew" is a harsh, sad play about Electro-Shock ttherapyl. lobotomies. the men-
tally ill and the kind of hospital they are in. Theatre Ashbury gets stunningly good performances from a
cast of eighteen on a solid set. well lighted and with good sound. Go, ifyou can tind a ticket. It's a school
production that rivals the pro's . . .
THE YEARBOOK CLUB
The production of the Ashburian is doubtlessly the
single most demanding and complex club offered by
Ashbury, and, given their arduous athletic and academic
schedules, I am always astounded that so many students
are able to devote their precious free moments to work
for me. Certainly the experience they will have gained in
the publication processes - layout of pages, editorial
decisions. photographic criticism - will repay their
Despite cutbacks of space - forty pages - and of colour
photography, I think the students and I have provided
another product of which Ashbury should be proud.
Indeed, I have only to thank those who sacrificed their
time for your Yearbook: first and foremost is Paul
Grodde, who has missed very few meetings in the past
three years: his quiet. disceming sense of what is right,
what fits - his ability to dampened his advisor's im-
petuosity - has been the guiding spirit of the book for
three years. Thank you Paul. Jessica Tickle arrived this
year and thank god she did. Jessica did layouts for
almost all the senior sports pages and if there are any
mistakes of judgement they will not be on pages forty-
six to sixty. Don Chapdelaine has provided us with
sports write-up three years running now and in this com-
plicated pan of production - probably getting write-ups
is the most trying aspect - Don has been very successful.
The work of Declan Hamill, Susan Liddle, and An-
drew Hogg has been valuable, especially in our depart-
ment of drama criticism.
Others who have helped out include Shena RM Devin
Holmes, Annie Liang, Ian Mclaine, Motomasa Mori,
and Matthew Boswell.
I would like also to extend thanks to Mr. Herique for
his superb photos: in fact, all the photography in the
Junior School is his work. My sincerest thanks also must
go to Mrs. Jowett, for her unstinted energies, her in-
tegrity, and her warm support.

JUNIOR SCHOOL SPORTS REPORT 1987 JUNIOR SCHOOL ATHLETICS AWARDS
The Autumn term in the Junior School sports pro-
gramme may be remembered as one of the most suc-
cessful in years.
The four soccer teams played an extensive schedule.
63 games among them, winning 27 and tying 9. The
under-14 J 1 team captured the Bishop's Tournament led
by SERGIO MOVILLA who was named MVP. Later in
the term, the team reached the finals of a strong Carleton
Separate League. The under-13 team performed ad-
mirably both in the National tournament in Vancouver
and in league play, finishing 5th in a seven team
The house league All Stars had the only winning
record of the teams compiling a 6-4-1 season while the
grade 5-6 J4 team played well, its only weakness being
the inability to score key goals.
This past autumn saw the creation of a cross-country
running team which competed in two meets. And, in
special fitness tests conducted in September, we learned
that the Junior School boasts fine runners in DAVE
MURRAY, CHRIS LOVE and ANDY COLE. All three
scored awards of excellence in the endurance runs.
As the term ended for the Christmas break, the hottest
team in the Junior School was the basketball team. As of
this writing, the team was undefeated, led by the scoring
ofJEREMY WOOD, ANDRE BARIBEAU and HUGH

JUNIOR SCHOOL SOCCER Jl REPORT
The year should be remembered as one of the most
successful the Jl's have had in over I5 years. And it
began when the newly formed team stunned a visiting
side from King's College Canterbury. England. 2-1.
A week later. the JI 's participated in the Bishop's Col-
lege School Invitational toumament where they had won
the consolation round final the year before. This year.
the team rolled past its opposition with four straight vic-
tories to capture the toumament championship. To make
the victory even sweeter. Sergio Movilla, scoring six
goals in the toumament. was named the outstanding
For the first time, the Jl's played in a city league in
the Carleton Separate Board grade 7-8 loop and, against
far larger schools, finished a proud third of seven teams.
Their 2-l-2 record got them to the semi-finals where
they thrashed St. Paul's 4-0 and ultimately the league
final where they were dropped 6-3 by an awesome team
from Frank Ryan School. ln fact, Frank Ryan had not
had more than a goal scored against them all season
making the Jl's accomplishment that much more
A day after losing the "moral victory" to Frank Ryan,
the J l's travelled to Toronto on the annual western road
trip and participated in the St. Andrew's toumament.
The team did not fare well. however. perhaps due to be-
ing on the down side of an emotional high.
Individually, the team was paced by the goal-scoring
exploits of Novilla with an incredible 16 in 22 games.
The offence was further sparked by Andy Cole '5 6 goals.
Forwards Kip Pullen, Hugh Bell and Derek Petridis each
scored twice while Dave Murray and Roberr Airey, with
a goal apiece. rounded out the forwards' contribution.
Halfbacks Andy Cole, Kevin London and J. P. Vacvani
provided solid playmaking and depth to the team's at-
tack. The defence. anchored by centre full-back Geb
Marett and sweeper Todd Bogie, was strong throughout
the season. ably supported by Francois Nabwangu.
Graham Duran! and Chris Potts.
It should be noted that the goaltending tandem of Mat-
thew Blondin and Michael Dervish had not played the
position at all before the season and showed remarkable
improvement. They gave the team many solid perfor-
mances and should be proud of their achievement.
The team's 9-9-4 record. with a tournament cham-
pionship and a league final berth to boast of. was based
upon the consistently fine efforts of each of I6 players. It
was a season that will be hard to top.

IOR SCHOCL DRAM
7716 Real Inspector Hound
by Tom Sheppard
The play performed by Ashbury's Junior School had
all the elements of an intriguing mystery. A secluded
mansion, surrounded by eerie mists and creeping fog.
imprisoned tive people in the house. There was news of
a lunatic on the rampage. A modern Don Juan juggled
the hearts of two dangerously jealous women - all in all.
there were too many motives for murder.
In the play, but also watching it. were two critics, one
with a personality crisis. and the other who enjoyed
seducing leading ladies. Somehow. as the tension
mounted, the characters mysteriously switched roles. in-
volving the critics in the mystery. At last the startling
climax occurred, then the dfnouement during which the
murderer was properly bagged.
The two critics. played by OLIVER FISHER and
DAVID DERVISH were wonderfully pretentious and
ansy with rumpled clothes and seemingly endless strings
Mrs. Drudge. played with great deliberation by MAT-
THEW COLERIDGE. spoke her dire prophecies in a
suitably ominous voice. Simon and Magnus, both rivals
in love and murder suspects, were realistically portrayed
by MARK ZAWIDSKI and FRANCOIS NABWANGU.
MATTHEW BLONDIN was appropriately 'macho' as
the First Inspector Hound.
To me, the highlights of the play were the two ladies
Felicity ICHRIS BARRINGTONJ and Cynthia CSCOT
HARRISONI. Neither in posture nor in manner of
speech did they show their true nature, not even in the
Love Scene. Only in the somewhat graceless walk and
the indiscreet hitching up of nylons was there a telltale
hint of boyishness.
The play will be remembered by those who saw it as a
surprising takeoff on murder mysteries, which, while
amusing. managed to involve the audience in the story.
The characterization was strong. and the thread of com-
edy running through it ensured that the mood was light.

A SAMPLE OF LITERATURE FROM THE JUNIOR SCHOOL
The following poem is the result of an imaginative exercise directed by
Mr. Polk. It is a Grade 5 co-operative effort: one stanza was written by
Twenty-four Ways of Looking at a Blackbird
tWith apologies to Wallace Stevensj
There are thirteen ways of looking at a blackbird.
The 14th way is to see its wings flapping in the sky as
a black dot.
Under the sparkling water look straight up
at the blurry reflection of a blackbird
One way to look at a blackbird:
look in the white sky
and you will see a black
bird with two glowing
circles on it
From the sky looking down
there is a black dot, the eye of a blackbird
The blackbird with its wings red as blood
The blackbirds flew the coop
under the fence,
Near a barn.
Then they were shot at,
but they never came down
Black as smoke but still pretty.
a black silhouette flew over my house.
It was a blackbird
The clouds open up
Rain comes down
In the rain you see the silhouette of a blackbird
As thunder clashes,
the blackbird comes tumbling down
A black house on a white sky
looks like a blackbird
Under the simmering sun,
stare at the shadow
circling the black lake:
the silhouette of a blackbird
I saw a blackbird swimming across the lake,
I didn't see what she was doing but
I think she was making a cake
I look down from a pile of dust
and see a tiny Black spot in the middle
As it drifts through the air
it disappears so fast
The dark shapes, flying over the horizon
Shadows against the sun's golden rays
Soaring there are two blackbirds
Up it flew in the sky
As it let out a shrill cry
I watched it fly above a tree
As he looked down on me
I hid in the brown leaves
Trying to camouflage myself
He has sharp eyes and ears
I watched him like a small elf
In the sky if you look up straight
but not through anything artificial
Because you might not see the true beauty of a
A shadow of giant wings
is shown on the sparkling water
The wind blows strongly. The blackbird's wing bends
The wind blows as the eye of the blackbird bends
Behold the blackbird's colour of black,
Its beauty is clearly without a lack,
you can hear its call
upon a cold and eerie fall
You can look at a blackbird by looking up and down
and all around
When you're walking down the road you can't even
hear a sound
when you throw an ugly crown
you see a blackbird coming down
Look up in the high, high tree,
and you will see the shining
and glamorous blackbird
The blackbird sailed in the sky until
a piercing cry came from its beak,
That would tell us something
The blackbird glides toward the ground,
and stops suddenly but does not land
In the summer blue sky
a blackbird flies by
On and on it flies
For many miles
THE RAVEN'S REFLECTIUN
Once there was a raven who lived in the country near a
lake. He was the biggest and meanest bird around, One
day he was standing on someone's dock. He Iept into the
air and swooped toward the water. He was going to
catch a fish. Suddenly he saw another bird. but it was
only his reflection. The bird did not know this and he
was very angry that another bird was after the same lish.
He started to screech and growl and became so mad that
he began to peek at his enemy. The thing that irritated
him most was that he got wet. He flew back to the dock
and the bird had disappeared, The water vs as as smooth
as glass. There was no one in sight. He flew over the
water for another go at the lish. The bird was there
again. The raven was so angry that he began pecking and
screeching so liercely that his head. and eventually his
whole body got all wet. He could not hold himsell' up
any more and he tell into the water and soon drowned.

HOW THE PELICAN GOT HIS BEAK
This story takes place in a big forest in northern Manitoba. in the l400's. It's about an Indian tribe. the Kabou-
.lah-Jou-Ji. who sometimes fought the Owakasinja's. But they hadn't fought for years.
It was a bright and beautiful day in northern Manitoba. All seemed wall at the peaceful village of Kabou-Jah-
Jou-Ji. The only disturbing sounds were the barking of their hunting dogs, the crying of a baby, and the scream-
ing of a mother. Suddenly the lookout Kana came running at full sprint and terror struck the chief Camoric.
"Chief the Owakasinja's come for war!" explained Kana in their native tongue.
"We are many but not enough to win a war. So someone must run to the village of the Kannas, then bring some
men here with their battle arms." decided the wise Camoric.
"I'll go." insisted. Abon. the youngest child of Camoric.
"My child, I would not usually let you go but the village needs you. so you can go," reported Camoric.
"I shall start now my chief and father." replied Abon.
He got some food and, then he began his day long journey to the Kannas. It was near noon when he started his
trip. 7h till darkness struck the land with full force. The joumey was mastly through ffor the first partl forest so
movement was slow. At last he left the forest to a desert and exclaimed. f'By the gods of Chhura where has the
great river Yung gone?? Have the animals drunk it all?? ""
It was as if the birds had heard him. because they started to circle Abon. He just ignored them and stopped for a
lunch break. He was almost finished his delicious meal when a great noise startled him. It was the great river
beginning its summer flow. Abon grew sad because he couldn't swim. and began shedding water fthe tribe says
that instead of cryl.
A family of pelicans heard his sobs and came over to comfort him.
"What is wrong oh pale face?" questioned the eldest of the family.
"My village is being attacked and I need too get over this river." explained Abon.
"I will be glad to carry you across the river." replied the oldest chief of the pelicans who was very strong.
So the boy got into the beak and away they went. Soon from perspiration the beak became softer. The nonh
wind seeing that the pelican needed help so he blew the pelican faster to the other side. They were almost at the
opposite bank when suddenly the beak stretched into a bigger and wider beak. It wasn't painful but it made flying
more difficult. The boy examined the beak and said "Well, it's going to stay like this forever."
The pelican knew he couldn't do anything about it so he said good-by and flew over to the other side of the
river. As the pelican flew off. Abon said a final thank you. Both the boy and the pelican went in their opposite
directions. The wind was blowing and the rain was coming down in buckets drenching the poor boy, as he left the
river. Soon it would be dark and then he would get lost, so he began to run. By the time Abon reached the village
it was midnight. He muttered "Village . . . battle . . n . . ee . . d.d h . . eee. l . . l . .ppp!" and then he collapsed
from exhaustion. But the tribe of battle indians had received their message and they started getting ready, while a
woman put Abon in a nice warm bed.
When Abon awoke he saw that the men were ready for battle and the long joumey. Everybody had spent the
night getting ready. After breakfast the troops and Abon started their long joumey. Soon they reached the great
river to see that the pelicans had built a bridge of rock. As the men crossed the bridge Abon waved to the family
and thanked the pelicans for a second time. After two hours of walking through forest they reached the village.
Once at the village the enemy saw the reinforcements and left the village in fiaims. Everyone cheered as the
enemy retreated. Abon knew that there would be a great feast in his honour. To himself Abon declared "Thank
the gods of Chhura!" And that is the tale of 'How the pelican got his big beak'.

She likes to remain her own

If she must, she will cry openly
She is afraid of silence
for fear it could mean

In many ways she is outspoken
