88 L. S. C. I. ORACLE

South was represented last year in a
fairly large Held as far as Junior Hockey
was concerned. The City group was
comprised of teams from South, Cen-
tral, Tech. and De La Salle, and got
under way shortly after Christmas.
There being no senior team, South's
efforts were totally confined to the smart
junior outfit which they contributed.
Following the elimination of Tech.
and De La Salle, in which some hard
games were fought, South and Central
began their erstwhile feud.
Both teams were right "on their
toes" and were out to Win., With a
fast forward line made up of Ray
Getliffe, Bus Wideman and Billy
Dawkins, we felt pretty sure of vic-
tory. This line was very ably backed
on defence by Harold Little and Neil
Love, and at'the nets by Eddie Rose,
who played sensationally throughout
the entire season. T
However, when the big event came,
we were forced to take the short end
of a 2 to 1 score. It was a fast game,
and except for Central's size, there was
little to choose between the two teams.
Time for the second game finally
came, with South feeling even more
able to meet the test, as Don Kunz
was back on defence after recovering
from injuries. This game was even
faster than the first, but the breaks
were against us, and we were again
defeated 3 to 1. This cancelled our
chances for the year after experiencing
one of the best hockey seasons in many
Alternates who ably filled their posi-
tions were: Westland, Nelson, Prud-
homme, Smith, House, McColl, Lofft,
Reid and McKenzie. ,

L. s. c. 1. ORACLE
FRANK WHITE, IV B
What was one sport's loss was the
other's gain, when three-school rugby
displaced the four-school Fall track
meet. As a more or less direct result
of this change, interest in track has
lagged and except in rare cases, the
enterprising athlete who makes his
track debut in W.O.S.S.A. competi-
tions goes home with a sour taste in
his mouth and takes up bridge.
Last year, our one trump-card was
Maurice Shore, who completed a very
successful collegiate track career by
winning the senior high hurdles. Un-
fortunately it was through a default.
This in no way detracts from Morry's
win, however. Lee, a Windsor athlete,
who won by a slight margin skirted the
seventh hurdle, which disqualified, and
at the same time gave him the slight
edge, as a greater speed is attainable
on the ground than in coasting the
hurdle. It was an unfortunate break
for them both.
The other bright spot of last year's
track, and one that augurs well for
the future, was the fact that we had
both a junior and a juvenile relay team.
Look at them, and then "dip into the
future"-they are our potential Shores
We'll have a track team next year,
certainly, but the fellows who are going
to comprise it this spring are pretty
much unknown quantities. First year,
don't wait until you're Second year.
Each competition gives you just that
much more experience, and most races
are won by losing a dozen others.

L. S. C. I. ORACLE 80
Editor, ELEAXOR BENDLE, V B
Grace With Precision
Miss J. MACFARLANE, B.A.
A few weeks ago Londoners were
given the opportunity of seeing Mr.
Niels Bukh and a group of his Danish
students give a demontration of the
Danish methods of Physical Education.
To see Mr. Bukh's students is to see all
that the Danish school stands for in its
highest form. Gone are the old exer-
cises which were performed with an
almost explosive precision and in their
place are rhythmic exercises which
show such grace of movement
that we are scarcely conscious of
when one ends and another begins.
Truly they were an inspiration and
suggested an ideal toward which all
might strive. Those who are trained
in this system develop grace of move-
ment, a sense of rhythm, which is almost
like a song, and unusual poise.
The aim of Mr. Bukh is best expres-
sed in his own words:
"In fundamental gymnastics an at-
tempt is made to take the useful
movements of free athletics and collect
them in a suitable form that one may
attain, for instance, the great develop-
ment of strength and the freedom of
arm movements of the discus and
javelin thrower without apparatus.
The athlete's powerful and agile
legs may be acquired without the track
hurdles or jumping stands, and it
is possible to produce the Graeco-
Roman wrestler's fine supple and pow-
erful physique by training and making
the body supple through trunk twist-
ings, bending and stretchings. and
Benefits of School Sport
Some people have the impression
that sports are of no value to those
participating in them. I am sure if
these people stopped to consider the
different benefits derived from sport,
they would immediately see their mistake.
Firstly, sports train the mind to
think quickly and to make accurate
decisions. In basketball, for example,
players must move swiftly and every
move should be to the advantage of
their team. Clear and effective think-
ing in moments of crisis is thus dev-
Secondly, the muscles are developed
and made to respond to the dictates
of the mind and the eye. This co-
ordination of mind and muscle develops
poise and ability to meet any new situ-
ation readily, a thing to be de sired. surely.
And last, but by no means least,
there is the development of that quality
of character we call sportsmanship.
The coach of any type of athletic ac-
tivity always stresses the importance
of good sportsmanship. He who is a
good loser as well as a good winner will
always be respected by those with
whom he comes in contact, not only
on the playing-field but in the game of
life as well. '
Surely if we take into consideration
these qualities which are developed by
every athletic activity, the benefits
of school sport are plainly seen. -E.B.
-'Miss MACFARLANE: "Can you tell
me how to punctuate the following
passage? 'I saw a pretty girl pass
down the street'."
BOB HARRIS: "I would make a dash
after the pretty girl."
