Reed, D. Kunz, H. Little, N. Love, B. Dawkins CJ. Dinsmore, Mascotj. Junior Hockey 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 years. Alternates who ably filled their posi- tions were: Westland, Nelson, Prud- homme, Smith, House, McColl, Lofft, Reid and McKenzie. , -ARTHUR MCKENZIE. ll Xe:- Qj-yi .X L A Huanr FAN-r Jnqx mnvrg.

L. s. c. 1. ORACLE The Track 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 87 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 and Rivers. 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. How Many of These Birds Do You Know? Answers 1. Loon. 9. Finch. 2. Heron CHair onj 10.

L. S. C. I. ORACLE 80 1. Elflli jljlilijg 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 muscle contraction.", 1 N. s 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- eloped. 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."
