SELWY HOUSE SCHOOL
-T MAGAZINE 1-
VOI.. b FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR IQRRA H34
Changes in the Staff at S.H.S. are somewhat infrequent, but in this year's Magazine
we have to record the departure of Mr. Harry Donald and his succession by Mr. F.G.
Mr. Phillips came to us from Lower Canada College, where he had been a Master
for four years, and we take this opportunity of bidding him welcome. Part of his duties
is to help Mr. Pattisson with the games.
Mr. Harry Donald, who, it will be remembered, staged our School plays so excellently
for the last two years, has left us for London, England, where he has been appearing in
Clifford Bax's play, " The Rose without a Thorn ", at the Duke of York's Theatre. We
hear that he has joined Sir Martin Harvey's Company, and may be going on tour to
South Africa with it. Best of luck, Harry F
It is with much pride that we have to announce the election of another old Selwyn
House boy to a Rhcdes Scholarship. This Scholarship, of the value of ff-1-OO each year
is tenable for two years at Oxford University. Christopher Fberts, who was one of the
two selected candidates in a held of twenty seven, was at S.H.S. for seven years, before
proceeding to T.C.S., Port Hope, and the University of Bishop's College, Lennoxville,
where he distinguished himself as a Gold Medallist and a hockey player. We congratulate
him and his parents.
The competition for the Angus Murray prize in 1923 was particularly close. The
alternative subjects set were:
l. The St. Lawrence River in History.
2. The greatest man of the 20th. Century.
3. What scientific discovery of the last century
has been of most beneht to mankind ?
Some excellent compositions were submitted. Hingston and Pollack championed
the cause of Mussolini and Gandhi respectively, while Gowdey and Jackson wrote very
good essays on the St. Lawrence. The judges eventually awarded the verdict to Jackson,
who proudly took with him to Shrewsbury School, England, a beautifully bound copy of
Shakespeare, the kind gift of Mr. Murray.

Mention of the Angus Murray prize prompts us at this point to congratulate
Mr. Murray himself on his recent marriage to Miss Ward Davis, which took place on
October 19th, 1933. His annual gift cf a Literature Prize has always been keenly appreci-
ated, both by Masters and boys. We wish him all possible good things.

XYe have pleasure in printing herewith a letter from the Master of Selwyn College,
" Thank you very much for sending me this School Magazine. I have left the ack-
nowledgment much too long, but it was busy work when term began. The Magazine
has been put in our Combination Room, and it is a matter of great interest that the name
of George Augustus Selwyn is thus kept in mind.
Perhaps we shall some day have one of your schcolboys over here, passing from
Selwyn School to Selwyn College. "
Again we beg leave to thank all our contributors who have so kindly helped in the
compilation of this little Magazine.
