The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all western stars, until I die. It may be that the gulfs will wash us down; It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles, And see the great Achilles, whom we knew. Though much is taken, much abides; and though We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are - One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. " Mr. Bunch then introduced the Headmaster. 7

A cultural statement is made thereby, no less important than the student ' s academic state- ment in the classroom, or his physical one on the playing fields. In subsequent years we shall attempt to extend these enrichments, whilst for the present we are grateful for the many pleasures provided during the past year by Mr. Johnson and his Choir, by Mr. Boel and his Band, by the Drama group and by Mrs. Smith ' s artists. The former art work in the Cafeteria and we cordially in- vite all our guests to enjoy these exhibits dur- ing tea. The already established programmes in Flying and Driving grow apace. Mr. Nash the staff supervisor of " those dreadful young men in their flying machines " reports that 12 stu- dents have attained their Private License dur- ing the past year, bringing the grand total to 60 qualified fliers since we began the pro- gramme six years ago , and a staggering total of 2,500 flying hours recorded in the College Log Book. On the ground, 42 students have been taught to handle a car. Needless to say these boys took neither their training nor their example from staff drivers. Although it would be difficult to claim that the results of our sporting activities this year have been world-shattering, there have been many fine performances by individuals and groups. First worth of mention is the fact that in Swimming, Badminton and Tennis our teams claimed the Independent Schools champion- ships. In Rugby our five years supremacy has unfortunately been broken, but a close scrutiny of the season ' s results reveals that Shawnigan Lake School was the only school team to beat us. Even as I report this, I can feel Mr. Carr breathing heavily down my neck and begging me to counter with the fact that in Rowing that same school ' s Nemesis was at last broken in the Vancouver Regatta on May 2nd. On this occa- sion the arrival of our first VIII at the finish line ahead of Shawnigan Lake School was a milestone in our rowing career. Mr. Yorath reports that for Track and Field this has been a most valuable building year, but personal acclaim must be given to our Grade XII student, Brian Hawksworth, who during his years with us has claimed no less than 12 Independent School titles. Likewise in badminton, under Mr. Orr ' s guidance we wish to offer our conratulations to David Wilkin- son who reached the semi-finals of the British Columbia Provincial Championships. The swim- ming programme got off to rather a slow start due to the arrival of the long-awaited pool cov- er. Once erected I overheard many snide re- marks comparing it with the barrage-balloon which I guarded so zealously during World War II. Of course I insisted that it be removed im- mediately and from that moment on Mr. and Mrs. Pitt have conducted a very full programme of both social swimming and Red Cross training courses. Many boys at all grade levels have qualified for Red Cross recognition. There will be but few changes in our staff when we reconvene in September. To Messrs. Nash, Pope, Evans and Keble who are leaving us we offer our thanks, our most sincere thanks, for all the support they have given and our very warm wishes for their future success. To those who will " once again assemble here " may I offer to each - to Governor, academic staff, to administration staff, to domestic staff and maintenance staff, a very sincere appreciation for your invaluable contribution over the past year. It is customary at this moment for the Headmaster to conclude with a few final words to the graduating class. Therefore with the promise of brevity, may I request this privilege and ask that I be allowed to change both the direction and the emphasis of my remarks from here on. Gentlemen: In recent years it has become customary, even fashionable, for people of my generation to adopt one of two attitudes to you, each, it seems to me pathetically objectionable, and both in no small part responsible for the coin- age of such spurious terms as " adolescents " and " generation gap. " Either, on the one hand, adults have sympathised and commiserated with you, have Offered you sentimental solace, seeming to recognise, even bolster the supposed uniqueness of your situation in the world today. Or, on the other hand, and this seems to me a trifle more disgusting, we have blemished our own dignity by seeking your camaraderie in the guise of fraternisation or togetherness. I cannot find it in my heart to adopt either of those platforms in these my farewell words to you. You are not the first to face adulthood with problems, nor will you be the last. These problems are your due, your right, your obliga- tion: they are different only in type not in de- gree from those experienced at a similar time by all other human beings, and in your answer to them you will define or fail to define your own dignity. Therefore I wish to throw a chal- lenge to you, to hurl a gauntlet before you, to dare you to live fully, to commit yourselves to a life of deed without word, a life of ambition and achievement without arrogarfce. I know my English Literature students will bear with me if I confess that I can find no bet- ter words to utter this challenge, than those which the Victorian poet Alfred Tennyson, put into the mouth of Ulysses. Standing before an apathetic and confused crew, he said:- Come, my friends, ' tis not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite 6
