Editorial iz la Milner
Cn a glad June day that is new as the Summer, and golden,
While the tattered primers and tomes are returned to the shelves,
The cars and the cabs throng the quadrangle, ancient and olden,
For the Grades go home - and among them the lordlier 4'Twelves.',
Has it all been worth-while -- the exile, the dire separation,
The Studies that scarcely were Social, the Maths. that were bleak,
The formulae now half-forgotten, the vain cerebration,
The little Latin Qperchancej and the rather less Greek?
Well - perhaps, though theylre scarcely inspired with celestial fire,
They have learnt on a road that is rough a behaviour that,s meet -
To stand on their own hind legs just a little bit higher,
To refrain from callously trampling the next man's feet.
And, maybe, the one from the dim, past days will remember
How that 'Jussive Subjunctive', the 'GVivat',, was shouted on high
C0n a clay that was equally golden in gloomy Decemberj ,
When, in glory, he scored the decisive and ultimate try.

The Headmaster's resignation after twenty-two years in office brings
to an end an era marked by progress in all fields and the construction
of many new buildings, of which in 1948 the school was in sore need.
He is to be succeeded, with effect from lst. August, by Mr. Richard
L. Gordon, BA. fAlbertal, lVI.A. fOxon.l, a former Rhodes Scholar
and Headmaster of St. John's-Ravenscourt School, Wlinnipeg. This
major change must inevitably dwarf all other events of the school year
and, as an alternative to the customary School Notes, the Headmasterls
Speech Day Report is printed in full. In 1948 this Magazine quoted
Tennyson with UThe old order changeth, yielding place to new," and
once again this quotation has become apt. Many expressions of goodwill
have been received by the Headmaster and Mrs. Timmis from all sec-
tions of school life - present Students, Old Boys, Governors, Staff and
the educational world of British Columbia outside the School itself,
which last indicates how great has been the impact made by the School
outside its borders. These tokens -- some of them very practical ones -
have been greatly appreciated, and it is sincerely hoped that the same
support will be given to the new Headmaster. Fortunately Mr. Gordon
is a man of considerable experience, and to him and lVlrs. Gordon a
very warm welcome is extended.
Mr. and Mrs. Timmis will be living at 4351 Blenkinsop Road, Vic-
toria, B.C., where they will hope to receive visits from all members of
the school family - past, present and future.

Qjune 6th., 19705
Speech Day- Sports Day, as usual, dawned bright and clear, and
a goodly number of Parents and friends assembled in the Gym to cele-
brate the 64th. anniversary ceremonies. After the Headmasteris Report,
which this year is printed in full, lNIr. Ronald R. Jeflels, c.D., B.A., B.ED.
CAlbertal. M..-x. QGantab.l, Director of Admissions, University of Vic-
toria, presented the academic awards, of which the full list is appended,
and then spoke principally to the boys on their inheritance in the
world of today. He drew comparisons between the world inherited by
his generation and theirs. He delved into History, but wisely refrained
from forecasting the future, and appealed to them not to ignore com-
pletely the lessons of the past in dealing with the future, but to profit
from the good things which they had inherited in the continuing line
It was a first-class Speech Day Address, erudite and humorous, which
met with the response it deseryedma rapt audience and a sincere
uthank-youn, Hrst from the Head Prefect, Justin A. Meeker, and then
from Mr. Logan Mayhew, Vice-Chairman of the Board. The proceed-
ings ended, as usual, with a lusty rendering of the School Song, and
everyone adjourned for lunch, followed by the Sports, at which ldrs.
Jeffels graciously presented the trophies to the winners.
"Mr, Mayhew, Mr. Jehnels, Ladies and Gentlemen: Once again I
am delighted to welcome Parents and Friends to Speech Day-Sports
Day, an annual event which nowadays appears to recur with ever-
increasing frequency. Although it is indeed a long time since my first
Speech Day here, with the boxing ring in the old gymnasium as a
platform and a very small audience indeed, it seems only a few weeks
ago that we were assembled for the 1969 Exercises, and only the vast
amount of activity which has occurred in the meantime underlines the
fact that a year has indeed passed.
"In contemplating these same events we find that some things stand
out. First is the good academic standing of the VI Form, who should
produce very good results in Departmental Exams this June. Second,
last November the School underwent a thorough inspection by a
former Senior Inspector of Secondary Schools for Greater Vancouver,
and I am glad to report that his Hnal summation was excellent and
concluded with the following observation - 'Parents should be able to
enroll their sons with confidence in this schoolf Practically the only
adverse comment in the Report referred to inadequate space to imple-
ment our otherwise satisfactory Art Programme, and the action on this
was gratifying. A group of boys, headed by Brock Higginbotham and
under the direction of Mr. Wood and Mr. Brookman, undertook as a
school project not only the construction of an additional Art Room
but also a permanent Theatre, equipped with stage, projection box,
lighting etc., out of the old and long-disused Dining Room, with a
section also set aside for the Sailing Club enthusiasts, now the largest
single body in the School, wherein to do their thing. The result is that
we now have an additional and valuable facility which we did not
have before, and in the Spring Term in the new Theatre we enjoyed
an excellent Comedy, 'A Man Full of Nothingl produced by Mr.
Gudmundseth and lX4r. Fay, with assistance from Robin and Jennifer
Spicer and help supplied gratis by Miss Chester of 'UVIC'. Some years
ago our dramatic productions reached a high pitch of excellence, but
became almost too much a part of the school life. Putting on the brake
unfortunately resulted in a complete stoppage, but once again Drama
has reappeared very strongly, and I feel that its future is now assured.
"Cn the extra-curricular side two things emerged: Ill the difiiculty
of maintaining interest in the Cadet Corps, and C2l the number of
athletic successes in competition with other Schools, both Public and
Private, and, of course, the Rugby Tour at Easter. Wfe have had a
Cadet Corps here since 1907 -one of the first Cadet Subalterns was
a boy known as Ham Roberts, who, some thirty-seven years later and
exactly twenty-six years ago today Uune 6th., 1944-D, then a Nlajor-
General, commanded the Canadian Forces at the invasion of Nor-
mandy-and the deterioration in spirit and performance over the
past three years was not only distressing but almost caused the Corps
to disappear. This was not so much the fault of the boys or the In-
structors, but of forces outside the control of either, and principally in
Ottawa. However, almost at the last moment and like a 'Deus ex
Macliina' Captain Gabriel has appeared as Chief Instructor, and, as
he is a former Area Cadet Officer for Pacific Command, an enthusiast
and a man who knows the whole cadet business from A to Z better
probably than anyone else in B.C., I am confident that the Corps can
be rejuvenated completely, with a programme which the boys will want
to follow and to continue long after the compulsory period is over.
During this past lean period the Cadets have had practically nothing
but foot drill and more foot drill without rifles f'square-bashingf as
we used to call itl , and they have most certainly had my sympathy, but
it will be an entirely different story when the new programme is listed
and they can see what lies ahead. NVe have not been alone in this un-
happy corps situation. It has been general throughout Canada and
also in England, .where schools now adopt a compulsory period followed
by a voluntary period, and at one school which I visited in March so
good was the programme that the Corps contained more than one
hundred volunteers who chose it in preference to extra time for other
"In Inter-School competitions we have done extremely well in Rug-
by, Sailing, Cross Country, Basketball, Cricket-the lot. not only at
the senior level but at the junior also, and this 1m1st ensure that the
teams of the future will maintain the level of the teams of today. In
Rugby, by February we had the best team for some years and possibly
the best school team in B.C. On the Spring Tour we played four games
in England, one in Wales and, making history this time, one in Amster-
dam against Nyenrode junior College. Of the six matches played
three were won, three were lost, and eighty-four points were scored
against eighty-one, and hence we came out on top! Twenty-four boys
were taken. all of whom played, and their performance both on and
off the playing Helds gave the greatest satisfaction to their Coach, Mr.
Hialsh, and to me. The fact that everywhere we went we were invited
to come again is a pretty good tribute to the boys and to their ability
to mix well in the different situations which confronted them.
i'iNIany of you will have noted the recently-increased political activity
to obtain Government recognition of the work done by the Indepen-
dent Schools of this Province. Some of you may have noted President
Nixon's tribute to those of the United States in his address of March
7th., wherein, incidentally, he noted a falling off in attendance at
Private Schools by some ten per cent. This, of course, is happening in
Canada too. Several Private Schools in B.C. have been obliged to close
through financial support failing to keep up with spiralling costs. At
present, despite much sympathy for the cause from M.L.A.s, and even
some of those in the Cabinet, Premier Bennett fails to be moved, but,
like water on a stone, if the pressure is kept up, then it must have some
effect in ti1ne. Meanwhile much skilled work by teachers goes com-
pletely unrecognized, and at the same time some 27,000 children in
this Province are being educated without an acknowledgement or even
interest taken by the Government. Personally, I feel that, as the future
of this Province will one day be affected by these same children, then
the Government is neglecting its plain duty in completely ignoring
their education, and if it persists in this ostrich-like attitude the' eco-
nomic facts alone will shortly force some action. In School District
1124, for example, one School closed last month, releasing several
hundred children on to the Public School system and hence an annual
additional bill for the Government which might well have been
avoided. We are not proposing to close, of course, but it could happen,
and it will certainly happen elsewhere with increasing frequency from
now on. Possibly what is needed is inspection by competent officials
appointed by the Government to ensure that the education provided
for all these thousands of children is of a satisfactory standard. Next,
the Teachers' work should be recognized, and, lastly, financial help
should be provided-if only on a limited scale. I am not so much
concerned with examination privileges as I am old-fashioned enough
to prefer external examinations, which are impersonal and the same
for all, to the arbitrary grading of a pupil by a teacher who may find
it, for personal reasons, even diflicult to be impartial. What is now
needed is action by M.L.A.s to overcome the opposition of that small
but most powerful section of the Provincial Cabinet, and the M.L.A.s
will act only if they are pressed by their constituents.
uReturning to tl1e year itself - always there are some staff changes
and these are generally deplored, but sometimes we say good-bye with
regret, as we did last year to a Master, in this case Mr. Nigel Barber,
who had accepted a teaching fellowship at the University of William
and lNfIary, only to report the following Speech Day that he is to return
in September. Our Chaplain, Archdeacon Wfolff, the Rector of St.
Lukels, came to help us out in 1964 for six months only and has stayed
for six years. I recall Mr. Harry Smith, who came from Victoria High
School for three months and stayed for nine years. I myself came in
1948 for one year only and have stayed for twenty-two. There must be
some spirit in the School which holds one and it can only be the boys,
of course. Despite their many failings-and, indeed their, at times,
outrageous behaviour-they are still the best of companions, and I
count it a great privilege that I have been permitted to spend so much
of my working life among them. As is well known, oflicially I am not
due to retire until 1971, but twenty-two years' Headmastering is a very
long and exhausting time, and in the early Spring I began to feel
extremely tired, and so I decided it would be better to retire this
Summer rather than undertake one more year. lNIy successor, Mr.
Gordon, I have known as a fellow Headmaster for many years. He
completed a distinguished career at the University of Alberta, where
his father was Dean of English, by gaining a Rhodes Scholarship to
Oxford. After service in the R.C.N., mostly on loan to the Royal Navy,
where he served with Combined Operations, he returned to teach in
Canada, and, after a spell on the Faculty of Upper Canada College,
became Headmaster of St. John's Ravenscourt at Winnipeg, eventually
leaving there to direct the Glenbow Foundation in Calgary. In addition
he has found time to publish books, to contribute editorials to the
lVinnipeg Free Press and to lecture on the C.B.C. In handing over to
Dick Gordon I know I can leave the School, which for me has been so
long an integral part of my life, in the best possible hands.
"University School, named in honour of a University which did not
materialize until fifty years later, has many advantages from its proxi-
mity to UVIC and many close ties. Distinguished Professors and visit-
ing lecturers often End themselves in our own Barker Library-last
year, perhaps, the most distinguished of them was Sir John Bagot
Glubb-Glubb Pashawintroduced to us by Professor Roy-and
from the days of the late Dr. John Ewing, Principal of Victoria Col-
lege, the parent of Victoria University, the School has been honoured
by the visits of these distinguished Chancellors, Presidents and Deans.
Mr. Jeffels, of course, needs no introduction to this audience, and I
am delighted that at long last I have persuaded him to be our guest at
this annual ceremony. It is perhaps a most significant part of 1XIr.
JefTel's personality that, whereas almost all other University Registrars
have been overwhelmed by their task, lXIr. Jeffels has smilingly and
serenely met all the challenges and risen above them. That relationship
between students and administration at the University of Victoria is in
such a healthy state as to be considered a model for other Universities,
and this is due in no small part to the work of two men - Dean VVal-
lace and Director Jeflels. The bond between this School and the
University is very strong, and it is indeed a pleasure to welcome today
yet one more of those links which bind us in the person of the Director
"Ladies and Gentlemen, I will now ask lNIr. Jeffels to present the
awards, and afterwards to give the address."
just before the ceremonies closed the President of the Old Boys
Association, Dr. David Ballantyne, made a formal presentation to the
Headmaster on behalf of the .Association of a magnificent silver-plate
salver, inscribed with the school crest and the following words:
University School Old Boys' Association
for his untiring efforts
as Headmaster at University School
Needless to say, the Headmaster was, for once, speechless, and,
indeed, remained so long after the applause and the School Song had
For him, at least, it had been the greatest Speech Day ever.

The Chapel is central to the daily round of the School. Each day

Although we have nothing outstanding to report, yet we do recall
some services worthy of mention.
At the Commencement Service, held last June, a plaque was dedi-
cated to the Glory of Cod and in memory of Gordon Taylor, a student
of the School who was killed in a tragic accident.
The Annual Remembrance Day Service was again held on the day
itself and the whole school company was present. Perhaps the events
that are commemorated on Remembrance Day may now be as remote
as the Punic. XVars to the average boy, yet the observance of Remem-
brance Day does remind us that the comparative freedom we enjoy did
not come to us either by right or by chance. A generous offering was
received and given to the charities of the Canadian Legion Poppy
Our Carol Service was held on Sunday, December 15th. The lessons
were read by masters and boys, and the singing was good. A generous
offering was received for Oxfam.
lVe are now preparing for the Annual Speech Day Service, to be
held on June 7th,

ie successes o this year s XX have done much to raise the School's
Rugby from the doldrums into which it had slipped during the past
two seasons. Sixteen matches were played, thirteen of which were vic-
tories, and this improvement spared the Team the indignity of a third
season languishing at the foot of the Independent Schools League.
Wlith only five members of last year's XV returning in September,
much depended on those who had been promoted from the junior
sides. In this department none did better than Briggs, an erstwhile star
of the 5th. XV. W'ithout possessing any of the natural attributes re-
quired by a scrum half, he still continued to provide Reeves with a
workable, if somewhat erratic, service.
The forwards possessed no one of any real size, leaving them with a
marked disadvantage in the set pieces. This deficiency was largely
overcome by a low and solid shove generated from the front five, allied
to Tunnicliffe's fast striking. Spicer attained some success at the con-
ventional line-out with well-timed deflections, but far greater use was
made of shortened line, and long throw, where Dade was never mas-
tered. Aided by accurate throwing from the wings, he frequently set in
motion strong attacking movements, having first surged across the
advantage line and committed several members of the opposition
In the backs Reeves was occasionally hampered by the erratic quality
of Briggs, service, but his quick acceleration and sidestep often brought
the best out of the opposing cover. The midfield featured Singleton's
strong running and relentless tackling, backed up by his co-centre,
Dykes, whose skill frequently belied his awkward gait. On the wings
lXfcDonald and Rainsford demonstrated contrasting styles of play:
lXfTcDonald made the most of his powerful stride with dangerous spurts
on the outside, while the diminutive Rainsford's scurrying inside bursts
were always liable to wrong-foot the cover defence.
Both forwards and backs were much less sure in defence. Far too
frequently last-ditch tackling and Smith's ingenuity were left to com-
pensate for basic weaknesses, notably around the fringes of the scrum.
The optimism engendered by three convincing victories over Public
Schools received a sharp set-back in the first match against Shawnigan.
The opening minutes, however, were promising: Reeves rattled the
crossbar with an attempted drop-goal, and moments later Dade was
felled only inches away from a try. Having survived this initial on-
slaught the Shawnigan side steadiedg their powerful mobile pack began
to wear down the school eight, and, following a succession of narrow
escapes, the Shawnigan No. 8 forced his way through some lax cover-
ing to open the score. During the second half the School attack was
confined to individual sorties, as the Shawnigan pack became increas-
ingly dominant. The School line survived precariously until the last ten
minutes. when the defence finally crumbled and Shawnigan had little
trouble in adding three late goals.
The following Saturday. against Brentwood. the School were three
points in arrears within minutes of the kick off. A swiftly-taken short
penalty allowed Brentwood to saunter through a lackadaisical home
defence for an unconverted try. Recovering from this early set-back,
the pack began to contain Brentwood in the line-out, and control most
of the set and loose scrums. From a swift strike by Tunnicliffe Briggs
fed McDonald. who moved past the scrum on the open side, before
handing on to Stelck. for him to score near the corner. Rifeeker con-
verted with an impressive kick. and the School changed ends enjoying
a slender two-point lead. During the second half Brentwood pressed
strongly and. with only two minutes left, regained the lead through a
penalty. rapidly followed by a drop goal. The chance of victory seemed
to have eluded the School again, but the home pack had other ideas.
Continuing to win good possession, and pinning Brentwood deep in
their own half, Singleton fastened on to a loose ball, and fed Mc-
Donald. who burst through to score. Minutes later Reeves moved
smartly to the blind side. timing his pass beautifully, to send in Mc-
Donald unopposed for his second try. A five point lead would appear
to have clinched the game, but Brentwood found time to dispossess
Reeves. and work the ball to their wing for him to score a last-minute
try. Hinson was left with the unenviable task of trying to save the
game, but his conversion kick flew wide, giving the School its first
victory since 1955.
Neither match against St. Georgels produced the high standard of
football witnessed in the Brentwood game. Both teams were guilty of
an abundance of basic errors, and the spirited St. George,s defence
never allowed the School back division to achieve their rhythm. Only
in the last quarter of each match did the school pack dominateg dur-
ing this time both Dade and Reeves were given sufficient latitude to
take full advantage of defensive errors and turn them into tries.
Any hope of repeating the heady triumph over Brentwood was
obliterated in the opening phases of the return match, when the school
team was comprehensively outplayed in every aspect of the game. The
home side. taking every advantage of the school's brittle defence, scored
sixteen points in as many minutes. Fortunately Brentwood eased their
effort and a possible cricket score was averted. just before half time
Reeves reduced the lead with a simple penalty goal. Perhaps the ad-
monitions to his team by the injured Rleeker had some connection with
the transformation of the pack on the resumption of play. Showing far
more determination they began to get the better of the fiery exchanges
in the loose. and from this possession Reeves and Singleton began to
exploit gaps in the hitherto-sealed Brentwood defence. Two tries
brought the school within striking distance of their opponents' total,
but twice in the closing stages superb covering tackles brought down
McDonald in full flight, and at the final whistle the school was still
trailing by five points.
A high wind prevented either side from achieving any fluency in
the second fixture with Shawnigan. Soon after the start Dade and
Smith left each other to clear a loose ball near their line, then watched
rnesmerised as an alert Shawnigan back nipped between them to score
between the posts. At the end of the half, played down-wind, the
school had only a single try to show for much hard endeavour by the
forwards. After the interval the defence became increasingly casual.
Twice the Shawnigan fly half carved huge openings through the cover,
each break resulting in a try. After Dykes had been injured, Shawni-
gan increased their lead to thirteen points before the school's most dis-
appointing performance was brought to a close.
During the Easter ternr a further four matches were played 5 two
against Royal Roads, one against Claremont and a third Fixture against
Shawnigan. Claremont, the local champions, were beaten for the second
time in a match where amphibious tactics were the order of the day
Cat the appropriately-named Beaver Parkl. The game also allowed
Hall to make a notable debut-splashing fully eighty yards at speed
to score the opening try.
At Royal Roads the backs wasted possession with such extravagance
that the home side was able to build up a half-time 13-O lead, in spite
of being outplayed at forward. Malevolent rnutterings from the pack
must have been overheard, for within minutes of the restart the scores
were levelled, and as the running of the backs increased in fluency
another fifteen points were added.
The result of the third fixture with Shawnigan was in doubt until
the last minute. The lead had changed hands several times before
Rainsford scored the match-winner. Receiving the ball in a most un-
promising situation, he cut inside and darted past a maze of bemused
Shawnigan defenders for a fine opportunist score. Meeker's nerve and
right boot were equal to the occasion and the conversion brought vic-
tory by a single point.
In the second game at Royal Roads the school team proved them-
selves more adept at overcorrring the atrocious conditions to complete
a successful term's Rugby with an 11-O victory.

After the idea of an Easter Rugby Tour to Japan had proved im-
practicable. there seemed little hope of making alternative arrange-
ments at such a late juncture in the season. Thanks, however, to the
accommodating nature of a number of Schools in the U.K., our tenta-
tive inquiries became definite fixtures. and a six-match tour was
arranged for the last two weeks in Rfarch.
The tour opened at Canford, where the school showed few signs of
weariness from the Hight and the nine-hour adjustment to British Stan-
dard Time. Meeker opened the scoring with a penalty, which was
consolidated by two further tries before half time. Canford were unable
to cope with the running of Reeves and Singleton, and after the inter-
val clever inter-passing between forwards and backs increased the score,
to give the school a convincing win. This initial victory gave the tour a
heartening start and augured well for the stronger opposition of Har-
row and Epsom.
Early in the game at Harrow, the fatigue from travel and the previ-
ous day's match was much in evidence. The forwards, lacking the
leadership of the injured Rleeker, were singularly lacking in fire and
drive, while outside the scrum there was even less purpose. Briggs was
constantly under pressure, and the passing of the whole team was dis-
tinctly wayward. Xlost of the attack was left to rely upon mistakes by
their opponents. and from a strong pass to the Harrow wing Hall
gathered the ball and the resultant try kept school hopes alive until
half time. In the second half the school was badly beaten in mid-Held
by two strong-running centres, and only desperate defence prevented
additional scores. The cover hung on gamely, but with resources of
stamina practically drained the defence collapsed and the Harrow
backs ran riot in the closing stages of the game.
After a day's rest it was hoped that the less testing opposition at
Eton would provide a chance to restore some of the morale lost in the
chastening experience at Harrow. Shortly after the start lNIeeker left
the Held for good with a recurrence of a rib injury. and from this point
the team seemed to lose all its cohesion. Dade. Spicer. Vallance and
Meeker II all worked hard to little avail in the loose. whereas Eton
made the most of their complete monopoly in the set. Here, Throne

suffered a Hooker's nightmare. barely winning a single ball throughout
the match. The rising frustration of the team was clearly illustrated
when Roxburgh, having been penalized for a crooked put-in, sped
twenty yards to escape the blows of his hotly-pursuing pack leader. an
irate lNIeeker II. Play Continued to be scrappy. and with only seconds
remaining Eton gained the decisive score: the unfortunate Roxburgh
failed to locate Reeves and his pass was gratefully accepted by an Eton
flanker, who touched down near the posts.
Added to the disappointment of losing to Eton. half the reserves
were rendered inactive through injury. so that most of the team at
Epsom faced the prospect of their fourth match in six days. Once.
however. the tension of the opening minutes had been overcome, there
followed the best rugby of the tour. while the first try was as good as
any scored in the season. A controlled deflection from Spicer at the
line-out was rapidly moved to Smith. who had joined the line outside
Rainsford. Two huge dummies from Smith wrong-footed the defence
before the ball was moved back. via several pairs of hands. to Hall on
the opposite wing, who raced over for a fine try. Playing with the slope
in the second half. Epsom came more into the game. but were still un-
able to pierce a resolute defence. Eventually Smith was caught out of
position, the ball was lost from the ensuing scrum and Epsom regained
the lead with a converted try. From this point the school seemed to
lose heart, and Epsom found time to add two further tries before the

Roxburgh, and casual covering had allowed Atlantic to score two tries.
a lead which might have been increased but for the home side's in-
different Finishing. Following the interval Reeves reduced the lead
with a well-judged penalty before Hall demonstrated his talents by
scoring three rousing tries by fast and intelligent running. Morganls
performance at full back fa makeshifti is also worthy of mention, if
only for his cavalier incursions into the back division, which unfortu-
nately all took place on the wrong side of the touch-line.
The tour was completed by a match against Nyenrode, a business
School some twenty miles from Amsterdam. The Dutch side began
with great elan. but after losing an early lead. lungs and legs failed
them and the School romped to a comfortable victory. Undoubtedly
the highlight of the game belonged to Keenlyside. whose outrageous
flourish in the act of scoring almost cost him his moment of glory, by
losing control of the ball.
The victory over Nyenrode balanced out the number of games won
and lost. and the lavish hospitality enjoyed after the match brought a
highly-rewarding tour to a fitting conclusion.

FIRST ' FIFTEEN CHARACTERS
SMITH Cfull backj -An entertaining full back, whose manner of defence
was definitely not for the faint-hearted. Tackled only in emergency, using his
considerable powers of contortion and leger-demain to extricate himself from
dangerous situations, many of which were self-inflicted. His long kick to
touch was used well in defence, while his ability to drop goals and incursive
running into tl1e line greatly added to the teamls scoring potential.
RAINSFORD Cleft wingj -Lacked real speed, but his sidestep and quick
acceleration made him an elusive runner. In defence a safe and determined
DYKES Ccentrej -His loping stride enabled him to cover the ground faster
than his awkward movements suggested. Capable of selling a convincing
dummy in attack, but still has to master the art of taking and giving a pass
SINGLETON Ccentrej - A hard and straight-running centre. Combined well
with Reeves in attack and was quick to take advantage of the loose ball in
broken play. An uncompromising tackler in defence.
INICDONALD fright wingj - Used his size and powerful stride to telling effect,
although apt to run straight at the cover defence when his speed and swerve
would have taken him clear. Sound and unruffled in defence.
REEVES Cfly halfj -Confident and incisive running, allied to liberal use of
a dummy and sidestep, made him the chief threat to the opposition's defence.
An accomplished kicker of the ball, towards the end of the season he had
begun to use the box-kick with particular skill. In defence effective, but
sometimes hesitant to stop his opposite number breaking close to the scrum.
BRIGGS Cscrum halfj -Although his pass varied in height and lacked dis-
tance, he formed a good understanding with Reeves. Developed a useful
break but wasted some of his efforts by put-ins to the set scrum so crooked
that even the most myopic of Referees would not have been deceived.
MEEKER I Cpropj CCaptainj - His unflustered Captaincy gave a firm meas-
ure of stability to a team always liable to fall victim to its own temperament.
He set a good example to his team by his own consistent performances on the
field, and his reliable place-kicking added the conversion points to many of
the season's tries.
TUNNICLIFFE fhookerl - Fast-striking in the set and alert to the bouncing
ball at the front of the line-out. Compensated for lack of poundage by speed
in the loose and a flair for running with the ball.
MEEKER II fpropj --A strong and durable forward. Together with his twin
formed solid and hard-scrummaging support for the hooker. Thrived on the
more rugged aspects of the game and was particularly effective in prising the
ball out of loose mauls.
SPICER Und. rowl -Without ever enjoying a size advantage over his op-
ponents, he still won much useful possession by skilful deflections from the
line-out. Hard-working in the loose and a good covering forward, but never
fully at ease witlrthe ball in hand.
VALLANCE f2nd. rowl - Lacked sufiicient height to be an effective jumper,
but gave good support at the line-out. Weak handling never allowed him to
make full use of his considerable mobility in the loose.
MORGAN Cbreakl -Once he had overcome his weak positional sense, he
became a useful member of the back row. Essentially a defensive player, the
school line was saved on several occasions by his assiduous covering.
STELCK I fno. 8D -On his day the most polished forward in the pack. A
strong and elusive runner with the ball, he initiated many attacks by linking
cleverly with the halves. A sound coverer, but apt to be casual in defence
around the base of the scrum.
DADE fbreakl -An outstanding member of the team. His fast breaking and
marauding helped stifle opposition attacks, whilst his adroit running and
handling in tl1e loose were of the highest calibre. Volubility was his only
faultq apart from distracting his fellow-fonvards, his perpetual monologue
during matches more than once incurred the referee's displeasure.
At full strength the 2nd. XV were not easily overcome, but were
never able to compensate for the loss of McPhee and Fellner I. These
two provided the basis of the team, and both produced a number of
creditable performances for the senior team. lVIcPhee added solidity
and experience to the back division, while Fellner's fiery example
among the forwards urged on the rest of the pack to greater effort.
Roxburgh and Steuart combined well at half-back, but insufficient
speed and hesitancy in defence affiicted the entire back division. Miller
I and lXlcCarten I gave Fellner full support in the forwards, and
Throne improved rapidly to become a competent hooker. Throughout
the season Cosentino, as a Captain, conducted operations successfully
and sensibly, and continually strove to bring the best out of his side.
Results were: Played 9, Won 3, Lost 6, Points for 71, against 135.
THIRD 81 FOURTH FIFTEENS
It is very difficult to put into words one's thoughts concerning a 3rd,
and -lth. XV. They inevitably live in the shadow of the 'fcreamn of the
school, and injuries and calls to higher levels often left the group
depleted. However, with hard training and sweat sessions at the be-
ginning of the season the 3rd. XV, particularly, began to show some
aptitude for the game. With a full and regular fixture list they showed
commendable spirit and determination, particularly against the local
junior schools. The three-quarter line proved to be the strong point of
the team, and many tries resulted from some fine running, especially
against St. George's C29-35 on a dry ground.
The Jfth. XV, however, changed from week to week and suffered
some heavy losses. Nevertheless, great credit must go to lWcLennan,
who never gave up hope that they would win, and there was much joy
in the 4th. XV camp when St. George's were beaten 9-3-a well-
Boys must learn that this is a team game, and that the basic funda-
mentals of passing and receiving a ball and tackling are all-important
4- this was not always the case. Considering that many boys had not
touched a rugby ball before, the CB' group managed a fair season, with
hopes for the future.
My thanks go to Cornwall, Wilder and McLennan, who acted as
Captains, and to Mr. Pollard, who refereed many a difhcult match.
SENIOR COLTS FIFTEEN
This was a disastrous season for the Senior Colts. as all games against
other Independent Schools were lost, some by huge margins. There
were exceptions, of course, but in the main the material available was
well below average, and with the general lack of ability there was a
corresponding lack of spirit. Certain individuals could always be relied
upon to give of their best. and such a one was Jamieson, while Consi-
dine II, Cameron, Powell, Swofford, Stelck II and lVIacEwing were
also dependable performers.
JUNIOR JUNIOR COLTS FIFTEEN
It is often the unenviable task of a Rugby Coach to select the team
after the training period and the trial games- this situation did not
arise, as the training squad was fifteen in number. tFor those un-
familiar with the strange game F- it takes fifteen to make a tea1n.j
This is the first year that the Junior Junior Colts have played in
competition games and the Junior Junior Colts quickly established
themselves as the form team of the school. The style of Rugby played
was unique, with each member of the team contributing his own dis-
tinctive style of play. This pot-pourri of techniques often resulted in
confusion amongst the team itself, but it proved most effective, as the
J.J.C.'s put up wins against Shawnigan, St. Michael's. Clenlyon, Mount
Newton, Richmond and Cliffside and a drawn game against Brentwood.
The highlight of the season was the return game against Shawnigan,
which was played on the school's No. l pitch with the entire school as
spectators. Pre-match ballyhoo included a 'Ctalkw to the teain by the
school Prefects, and then to the sound of stick on garbage can the
Junior Juniors were cheered on to the field. In such an important
fixture as this it is often the strategy to keep a secret weapon in reserve
- a forward who plays well within himself for most of the game only
to reach his peak in the final minutes of the contest, and often having
that extra energy to score the winning try. The school had such a man.
and those privileged to watch the game saw a sight never to be for-
gotten. Wfith only seconds remaining in the game a bird-like figure,
Francois Xavier Cabanas, was drawn into a ruck Qthough some say
he was pushedj only to rise phoenix-like not with the ball at toe, but
with some mud on his knees. This supreme effort was not required. as
the school had dominated all phases of the play to win 20-3.
JUNIOR JUNIOR COLTS FIFTEEN
GREEN - A human rocket, launching himself into the path of attackers.
IYICK - Always ready with a word of scorn directed at his own team.
FREISTADT - Knew all about the game before the first match.
CAB.-XNAS - "The Flying Spaniard."
WITTER -- Never in danger of injury.
HARDMAN - A broken ankle for his troubles.
151 I- - YVingers of peculiar speed.
DALZIEL - Trouble with wandering eyes.
CRAIG - '6The Spiderf' often hid behind the Referee.
ROBERTSON - "You useless log." CP.K.F.D
INICCARTEN II - A power-house.
LAUDER - "The Hogf, UVick 8: kIcCarten IIJ
LEWVIS - Linesman extraordinary and gainer of many yards.
SNOW' - Aided and abetted Lewis.
In the words of "Spider" Craig, "when half a rugby team stand back to back,
and stretch from the post to the swimming pool, then all must tackle low and
hard and ask questions later."
Cricket once again occupied a prominent place in the Summer
schedule. The Clayton Cup Competition, in which there were some
very exciting finishes, and the House lNiIatches were maintained.
Of the five matches enjoyed by the lst. XI, one was won, one drawn
and three lost. The batting improved considerably, and good innings
were played by Reeves, Roxburgh, Keenlyside, Fellner I and lXIcLen-
nan. They never came off together, however, and it was always a one-
man show. The bowling, which promised well, disappointed. Fellner II
was fairly successful, but really -only Reeves, always a determined
competitor, showed any staying power. The fielding was patchy, but
Roxburgh, Reeves and Keenlyside were always very good. Reeves, 18
wickets, and Eellner II. 16 wickets, did most of the bowling, while
Fellner I, Reeves, Keenlyside. Roxburgh and lNIcLennan had a batting
average over IO.
The lst Eleven was as follows:
J. M. Tunniclifife fCaptainl, A. Kleeker, R. R. Roxburgh, M.
R. Reeves. M. E. Fellner. XI. lXIcI.ennan, INI. R. C. Briggs, G.
Fellner, S. Keenlyside, D. lNIcPhee and R. M. Throne.
FIRST ELEVEN MATCHES
School v. Oak Bay C.C.
It was not to be expected that the School would give Oak Bay C.C.
much of a game, and they did well to make 65, both Roxburgh and
Fellner I just reaching double Figures. The School tried seven bowlers,
but none made much impression, and Oak Bay won by eight wickets.
School v. St. George's School
The School, batting first against St. Georgels, would have fared
badly but for a patient innings of 30 by Roxburgh. YVhen St. Georgels
batted Fellner II took quick wickets, but then catch after catch was
dropped and it was desperately close before Reeves finished off the
innings, taking six for 32. Fellner I1 took four for 29, and the School
won by two runs.
School v. Shawnigan Lake School
Shawnigan's batsmen opened well and a large score was in prospect,
but the later batsmen were dismissed cheaply and the innings closed for
123. The School were indebted to Fellner 11, who took seven for 41, an
excellent performance. Keenlyside took a good catch. The School
started their innings dismally but were rescued first by Reeves, who
played a sensible innings, and then by Fellner 1, who, quite undeterred
by pace at one end and swing at the other, hit hard and often. He was
favoured with some luck, of course, but it was a confident and coura-
geous effort, which produced +14 runs, the highest score hit for the
School during the season. It was not enough to ensure victory, but in
reaching 100 the School had made a creditable reply.
School v. Shawnigan Lake School
The return game at Shawnigan resulted in a draw very much in
Shawnigan's favour. After early success the school bowling became
very loose. There were also expensive misses in the Field, and Shawni-
gan was able to declare at 118 for nine. The school innings was domi-
nated by Keenlyside, who used his reach well in playing forward and
drove straight when the opportunity arose. His 32 was an excellent
effort and enabled the School, who were 53 for six at the close, to earn
School v. St. George's School
The School fielded Hrst in Vancouver and made a good start when
half the opposition were back in the pavilion with 40 runs on the
board. The bowling then went to pieces. There was minor panic and
major frustration before the innings closed for 85. Reeves alone bowled
with determination, and took four for 20 in the process. Throne took a
good catch and Reeves an excellent one.
The School opened their innings and promptly lost three wickets for
two runs. lV1cLennan, 29, and Reeves, 30, then produced the longest
and the best partnership of the season. Both played restrained and
sensible cricket, playing the bowling on its merits. VVl16Il Reeves left,
most unluckily, they had steered the School into what should have been
a safe position - six wickets for 70 runs. lN1eeker 1 then came in to hit
13 in quick time, and the score was seven for 83. There was no further
scoring, however, as lVIcLennan, lN1cPhee and Fellner I1 fell to suc-
cessive balls, and with Throne also failing to score the School lost by
two runs. The unnecessary delay in disposing of the St. Georges tail-
enders cost the School the match.

FIRST ELEVEN CHARACTERS
TUNNICLIFFE CCaptainj - An improved batsman, especially on the off side
in front of the wicket, but he never came off in matches. In practice he
bowled reasonably well, but again failed in the important games. He should
remember that a bowler of his type rnust expect to be hit. His catching has
much improved but he is still weak on the ground. He is keen to a degree
but is far too excitable, and failed to do himself justice in consequence.
ROXBURGH-XVith the bat he was fairly successful but he was unhappy
playing back and failed to use his feet. A very fine fielder both on the ground
and in the air.
MEEKER I- Essentially a hitter he was somewhat unfortunate with the bat
and seldom came off. Very keen and useful in the field.
REEVES EA vastly improved player. XVith the bat he has acquired a reason-
able defence and he treated short bowling roughly. Hlith the ball he was
steady as to length and direction and was not easily discouraged. In the field
he anticipated, possessed very safe hands and had a strong and accurate
KEENLYSIDE - Somewhat impetuous with the bat but possessed some power-
ful shots in front of the wicket and on the leg side. He has come on with the
ball but failed in matches because he tried to bowl too fast and was too taut
and unrelaxed. Excellent in the field and keen to a degree.
MCLENNAN - Greatly improved with the bat. He has acquired a good defence
and possesses some wristy shots on the off side. He is also beginning to play
wi-ll off his legs. In the field he is slow on the ground, but his catching has
improved. Extremely keen and promising.
FELLNER I-Unpolished with the bat and lacking in defence. He is, how-
ever, confident, aggressive and unfriendly to the bowler, and has played
some useful innings. Very good in the field.
FELLNER Il - A bowler of distinct promise. At present he is not determined
enough and rather easily discouraged. He has had quite a good season and
there are many wickets in store for him with a little more experience, and
steel in his attitude.
BRIGGS-A very-greatly-improved wicket keeper. He is now taking the ball
more cleanly and becoming a real threat to the batsman. Very agricultural
with the bat.
MCPHEE-Uncertain with the bat but looked promising on occasion. In the
field he was slow on the ground and lacked anticipation, but his catching
THRONE-With the bat he has some idea of defence, but is too stiff and
awkward at present. Not without promise with the ball and should be useful
next year. Good in the Held.
Four teams participated in the Clayton Cup Competition. Two
rounds were played, and Reeves' XI were the winners, with Tunni-
cliffe's XI strong contenders.
The Holms Cup, awarded to the House Champions, was won by
Wfinslow House, but the games were disappointing.

Junior Cricket gained sufhcient numbers at the start of the Summer
term to warrant the formation of an additional games group compris-
ing Grades VII and VIII. Players from both junior games were used
in the Junior XI, which played seven, won three, lost three and drew
The victory over Shawnigan was won by the narrowest of margins.
Iverson. who enjoyed more than his fair share of luck, together with
Lauder added nine improbable runs for the last wicket to give the
Team their first win of the season. In contrast to this success, the Team
was twice overwhelmed by St. Georgeas, who were vastly superior in all
departments of the game.
Iverson and Considine II bore the brunt of the bowling, while I'Viley
proved to be the most consistent of the batsmen. Wlick and Bigliardi
both demonstrated their potential as all-rounders, and Finamore I
should develop into a useful batsman when his nerves cease to plague
him at the crease.
Iverson. in spite of some bizarre ideas on field-placing, led the Team
well. He set a good example by his own performance with both bat
and ball. and his cheerful presence in the field did much to maintain
team spirit throughout the season.
In the Independent Schools' Competition the School put up some
creditable performances, though not always winning ones, and in the
final analysis the fact that we had three junior players in the six-man
squad augurs well for future years.
In competition against St. Ceorgels we came up against a team with
great strength and depth. In the singles Copeland was the only school
winner, while Stelck II battled for two hours before leg cramp and
exhaustion gave the last games of the third set to his opponent-a
very creditable performance. In the doubles the School was defeated in
the three matches, but in the match with Stelck I and Burrows paired
against the No. l team of St. George's we saw some of the best tennis
of the season, with these two boys playing well above their ability.
lNIcLennan and Dykes took a set from the St. Georges No. 2 team. The
style of these two boys often frustrates the opponents. and they make
outrageous errors -- hence the second set to the School.
Brentwood proved too strong and they were undefeated in the
singles and the doubles. Again, the School were not outclassed as the
result would indicate.
Only the singles were played against Shawnigan and this resulted in
two wins to each side-winners for the School being Burrows and
Stelck II. The conditions for this match were so poor that the standard

A keen interest has been shown throughout the year in Basketball,
and a full fixture list has given us the opportunity to participate regu-
larly throughout the VV inter months.
This year we entered the Victoria City and District Evening League,
and we enjoyed some keen competition against local Schools and Clubs.
Practices were held on Tuesdays and matches played on Thursdays.
While we lacked the experience shown by the 'GCity" boys, the School
performed very creditably fparticularly against Oak Bayj .
This, of course, all led up to our "Finest Hour," when we won the
Independent Schools' Competition, held at St. George's, 67-65, in a
most thrilling Final. XVe held off a tremendous rally and kept cool
under the greatest pressure at the end. Dykes led a fine squad, and
perhaps we produced our best Basketball of the year.
A lot of credit must go to Ken XfVilkie, an Old Boy, who showed great
knowledge of Cand keen interest inj the game. Wfe were sorry to see
him leave at the end of the Spring term.
Good luck to the Team next year!
DYKES QCaptainJ fCentrel - A consistent and well-balanced player. On
offence he fed vt ell, and occasionally scored high. On defence he excelled in
blocking shots and getting rebounds,
lXIcDONALD CCuardj -Good hands and quick, intelligent moves made him
the side's best scoring threat. His jump shot was elusive and rarely missed the
mark. He made many successful fast breaks and was a valuable asset on the
boards. An outstanding player.
DADE CForwardj -Although he had a tendency to play out of position, he
showed signs of usefulness. He possessed a consistent foul shot and rebounded
HALL fForwardj -A natural athlete, he played consistently and improved
as the season progressed. He drove well to the basket and possessed an ac-
curate, although somewhat unorthodox, shot.
SYVOFFORD CGuardD -He brought the ball up court well and had a fairly
accurate outside shot. A player of promise.
Other members of the Team included: fNIcLennan, Cameron, Steuart, Lokken

The Badminton Club has had a successful season. This year we
teamed with Norfolk House School under the supervision of lXfIiss
Thom. It was decided to begin early, and, in fact, Badminton was
played every Saturday morning throughout the first term. The league
games began in the second term, and we met with moderate success.
However, the schedule began too late for us to complete all our games
in that term.
The Badminton Club seems to have been dominated by the Senior
School in the past, and it would be a welcome sight to find a Junior or
two turning out to practise next term.
Thanks are due particularly to Considine for his efforts to organise
everyone, and to the many non-playing Scorers.

This has been the most successful year yet for the Boat and Sailing
Club. A great deal of new equipment was added to the existing para-
phernaliaaa ten h.p. and a twenty-five h.p. outboard engine, four
Flying Juniors with riggings, two more Sabots, another hydroplane, an
"Imp", a ski-boat and a crash-boat. It has been said that the Club now
has the facilities to have a third of the school afloat at one time.
Commodores Cornwall and Higginbotham co-headed the Club this
year, and were in charge of operations in the Boat Club.
Witli our expanded fleet of boats the Club has had to have assistance
with transporting bodies to the water, and lNIr. Price, an old member,
kindly offered his services. Daily throughout the Summer term the
Cordova Bay and the Oak Bay convoys have pulled out of the school,
filled to the brim with boys, engines and all sorts of sailing equipment.
Activities this year have included sailing, water-skiing, scuba-diving,
hydroplaning and the occasional swim. To initiate new members a
"polar bear" swim took place at Cordova Bay in the first week of the
Summer term, and it is significant that not one case of Nout of bounds"
sailing has occurred this year. Formality was reduced to a bare mini-
mum, yet all club members were aware of their responsibilities. As an
example of this type of conditioning-we are able to launch, rig and
start to sail within five minutes of arrival at the dock.
The sailors did very well this year, as a result of their training and
tips from Mr. Wood. They defeated Brentwood and Shawnigan Lake
- both strong teams.
The facilities have been increased and improved at Cordova Bay.

Colours have been awarded, for the first time, this year. The recipi-
ents were Britten, Dennis and Copeland. Their respective crews-
Heffernan, Venables and Powell -were awarded Crewing Badges, in
recognition of the team effort required. Rainsford and Singleton com-
pleted the Sailing Eight, but, owing to their heavy Grade XII academic
load, they were unable to participate in all Regattas.
In addition to the Regattas fat home and awayl against Brentwood.
Shawnigan and Clenlyon, we were the guests of the Hollyburn Sailing
Club in Vancouver on the Saturday prior to the Independent Schools
Regatta. Cvernight accommodation at the Club was made available
and University School is grateful for their kindness and hospitality,
which we hope to return in the near future.
The Independent Schools Regatta, hosted by St. George's at the
Royal Vancouver Yacht Club under the direction of Mr. Dorchester,
proved to be, once again, a great success. The results of this, and other
Regattas. are given below. The heavy winds which prevailed through
the series of three races tired our light and young crews. However,
they sailed very well indeed to place second overall. Britten, the Cap-
tain of Racing, placed second in points, Copeland fourth and Dennis
seventh out of a field of twelve.
The second inter-House competition resulted in some very fine sail-
ing and a great deal of enthusiastic support from the rest of the School.
For the first time the Sabots and El Toros were raced in conjunction
with the Flying Juniors, and their points counted towards the Trophy.
Wfinslow emerged first Cl8?f1 pointsj, with Bolton second Q25j and
Barnacle third QSIMD .
Our thanks are due to lylesdames Neal. Yardley, Morris and Hous-
ton for organizing the very successful Sailing Club Christmas Hamper
Raffle, to Safeways, Hocking and Forbes and the 'cBay" for providing
the gift certificates and prizes: and to all who bought tickets.
Our special thanks go, again, to Mrs. Keble, for the use of her
premises, to lNIr. Postle, for the use of his very fast El Toro, and to Keith
Price, for his help as Assistant Sailing Instructor and for the way in
which he handled and overcame so many difficulties.
To the Staff at the Oak Bay lNIarina we owe much more than
wharfage. Their help and encouragement has, many times, enabled us
to continue to operate when the weather, and other factors, made the
outlook seem very bleak indeed.
"A" SAILING EIGHT
BRITTEN-The most experienced and successful skipper in the School. He
has had a tendency to heel his boat too drastically when close-hauled with a
resultant loss of counterboard leverage and considerable slippage.
DENNIS - He has at times sailed excellently, but a tendency to overheel and
to push his boat too hard has frequently lost him distance over the ground in
gaining speed through the water.
COPELAND - The best close-hauled sailor in the School, he has overcome his
lack of confidence in a heavy wind and is rapidly challenging Britten and
Dennis as the most consistently-successful sailor.
RAINSFORD - Somewhat clumsy to start with, he has improved considerably.
He has yet to grasp the intricacies of making a buoy when close-hauled.
HEFFERNAN - At times clumsy, but always willing.
VENABLES - Keen, active and obedient.
POWELL - Skilful and intelligent. Better as a crew than as a skipper.
SINCLETON-Improving with every race. He became a surprisingly good

the senior group has had some good performers, there has been no real
strength in depth, and consequently we Hnished fourth in the Indepen-

As in most sports. competition is essential to maintain interest in a
boy. It was a pity that more Senior lNIeets could not be arranged. It
should be possible for our schools to compete in the Vancouver Island

Lastly, my thanks to Reeves as Captain of Track. All the best to him

and it is unlikely, therefore, that any of the old records will be eclipsed.

It has been a good year for the School in Cross Country, and compe-
tition has been very keen. The Juniors, particularly, excelled themselves
by winning the Independent Schools' Run. held at the School in
lNIarch. They were led by twelve-year-old Freistadt, who won in 26m.
105. The School took six out of the first ten places - a verjv fine
achievement. The Seniors were second. with Smith coming in third.
In the Central Saanich Relay lXIatch Freistadt came a very creditable
fifth in his age group. and. by finishing second in the Senior Inter-
House Event, showed that he has courage and determination and much
potential for the future.
Cross Country running demands a self-discipline that is rarely found
in other sports. I hope that the rest of the School can follow the
example of the Juniors next year.

Next year Shooting will no doubt attract many more boys. Wfith this

This should raise our standards to new and promising heights.

School for participating was most encouraging, and has definitely

"A MAN FULL OF NOTHINGU
Drama this year resumed its role as a major activity in the School.
Activities in the Christmas Term were limited as no one had had
dramatics training previously. The time was devoted primarily to
learning basic acting skills, movement and speech. A play was not
selected until the end of the term and no rehearsals began until
Theryplay selected was an adaptation of a recent translation of the
play 'A Man full of Nothing', written originally in German b the
nineteenth century Austrian, Johann Nestroy. It proved to be aiinost
appropriate choice. As a comedy, it provided scope for the actors and
delightful entertainment for the audiences.
Rehearsals were intensive throughout the Easter term until the
performance for the School on lXfIarch ll.
Originally it had been assumed that the play would be performed in
the Assembly Hall. However, Mr. Wlood and Mr. Brookman decided
that the old library building could be converted into a theatre and art
complex. Through their efforts and the assistance of many boys the
Theatre was completed in time for the opening of the play.
It was a spectacular occasion in many respects. The University of
Victoria Theatre Department loaned us lighting equipment and stage
furniture. The most frequent comment was on the professionalism of
the production and the superb Theatre in which it was staged.
lX4uch of the success of the venture was a result of the enthusiastic
eHorts of Miss Christine Chester, a graduate student in Theatre at the
University of Victoria. She was indeed a 'cguiding light," providing
her creative flair in directing and design.
The overwhelming success of what began as a tentative attempt to
re-establish theatre in the School ensures that drama will always be an
important part of School life.

Miss Jennifer Spicer of the University and Miss Robin Spicer of
Norfolk House joined the production, playing Mrs. Yeil and Kathy.
The projects for the Art Students this year have been numerous. To
mark the beginning of a new decade, we undertook to re-design an old
building on the school grounds and convert it into a Theatre-combina-
tion-Art-Workshop. Most Students at one time or another contributed
to this during the day. The final outcome is a complete success, and we
now look forward to many events in this area.
Qur Annual Art Showwill be held in this complex, and it will con-
sist of a newer approach this year. Several Students have attempted a
higher standard in Art by exploring some of the current outlooks.
The complete year has been successful and rewarding.
Life is short- Art is long is a statement that bears some thought,
and our Students can verify this by the amount of effort required to
attain some measure of success in this held.
The choice of films made available to our schools has always ap-
peared to be limited to the silent films of 1903 or the budget movies of
1963. This year, however, the selection of films appealed more to the
modern ideas of today's cultured youth. The films were at times poor,
which was due to the fact that the wrong films were sent to us 5 but
generally they were a step up from previous years!
The projector Qwhich was new last yearj presented only a few prob-
lems, such as bumed bulbs and sound lights Qand forgetfulness to plug
itself in - after all, it is automaticlj, and has therefore been a pleasure
to work with.
As is customary, I would like to thank the Projectionists, D. Corn-
wall, C. Dykes, W. Cosentino Cwho for some peculiar reason knew
more about the Machine than the President of the Club, and was
therefore invaluable in between real repairsl, M. Macliwing, B. Val-
lance and A. Souza. Of course, the whole Club is deeply indebted to
lX1r. L. Hinton, who, for yet another year, has given his time and
knowledge in attempts to further our cause, be it what it may.
Finally, to quote the 1968 Edition of the 'Black and Red', "Good
luck to our next Presiclentw the may need itj .
James lX1. Tunniclillie, President.
A light-heartedness pervaded the Debates held this year, the writer
being certain that the Debaters would rather argue about suitable mar-
riage partners for Pierre Elliott Trudeau than discuss the pros and
cons of the lXfIediation Commission Act fBill 333 .
Our thanks go to the girls of Norfolk House and St. Anne's, who took
part in several Debates, and to the audiences who were forced to listen.
Those concerned were: Dade, Maclilwing. Considine, Leeming.
Reeves, the Chapmans, Swofford, Scrimes II, Britten, Herrmann, Hef-
fernan, Travers, lN4organ and lXflcPhee.
The Chess Club has enjoyed continued popularity this year. Al-
though no formal meetings were organized, Chess was played in the
Library after lunch, and after games in the evening. The Club was
supported mainly by the juniors, who showed a great deal of promise.
It is hoped that next year a few Chess Tournaments can be arranged,
presided over by Cabanas UD , who, with a twinkle in his eye, will be
announcing 'fCheckmate" to his astonished opponents.
Christopher M. Considine, Captain.
THE BARKER LIBRARY
The Library holdings were expanded further this year with the
acquisition of research materials primarily in English and History. It
was decided that the paperback format would be the most reasonable
and this permitted the purchase of more titles than could otherwise
have been obtained.
Cataloguing proceeded at a cautious pace as the new books were
assigned Dewey numbers and catalogued for author, title and subject.
To facilitate more convenient use of the Library a new system was
devised whereby students are able to check out books unassisted. It was
found that this eased the work load of the student librarians and that
the circulation of books increased.
Several magazine subscriptions were added, including a subscription
to Saturday Reviewf
The Library has begun to take its place as the focal point of the

The best feature of the venue was not to be found in the facilities
provided by St. Annels. though the spacious moon-lit gardens of the
Academy did ensure that the many who found the closeness of the
dance floor too oppressing were able to free themselves from the dan-
gers ensuing from claustrophobia, while many found it advantageous

The spirit of the evening was of such a bubbly exuberance that it
was not long before the Empress Hotel and environs became engulfed
by the young swingers. But. as in life. often the fizz and bubble are
soon gone. and the dregs are left behind - such was the case.
The dance had many overtones to the tale of Cinderella, as at one
stage it was rumoured that the ugly Godmother fthe Chaperon in

vanished. but as the magic hour approached the guests returned.
Like Life itself the Dance has to end. and as the moon reached its

This year Barnacle has been lacking in numbers, particularly where
the graduating class has been concerned. This, to some extent, has
hindered House Spirit. This Spirit must be initiated by the Seniors and
carried down to the lower grades, and it seems that it is here that we
have been handicapped.
Athletically we have done as well as could be expected. Under C.
Dykes we have won the Basketball Cbeating Bolton in the processj, and
in Cross Country, though we had the Winner, Bill Logan, and in
Cricket we have fielded second-best teams. Nevertheless, next year's
sports look promising for the House, and we may look forward to
coming out on top.
Much thanks must go to Mr. Hartley and lXfIr. Walsh for their con-
cern in house affairsg also to the Nurse and the Matrons, who have
helped so much in house functions.
On behalf of the House I would like to thank Mr. Timmis for his
twenty-two years of service, and to wish him the best of fortune in the
To Mr. Gordon, the new Headmaster, and to those returning I wish
the best of luck, and I hope that the School and Barnacle House will
uphold the proud traditions of the past.
Richard G. Morgan, Captain of House.
In September it was not difficult to look ahead with a certain
amount of optimism concerning the success of Bolton House, as a large
percentage of boys had one or more years of boarder life behind them.
It is experience that makes a successful House, and this year Bolton
House was fortunate enough to have it.
In all phases of school life the members of the House, both junior
and senior, have been a credit to the School, shining particularly in
Rugby and Track.
VVe may say that the House generally had a very successful year.
Spirit and enthusiasm were constant throughout the rugby season. and
came in waves during the last term, but carried us through to the end.
A great deal of our success has been due to the influence of lNIr.
Walsh, who, both in the House and in the Held, has encouraged us to
maintain exceptionally high standards. We all owe him much thanks.
Finally, on behalf of the Graduating Class, may I wish Good Luck
to those returning, in the hope that they will carry on the traditions
both of the House and of the School as a whole.

INSLOW HOUSE SENIORS
This year has been a most successful one for the Day Boys in all
aspects of house activity. For the first time the House has been divided
into two sections, the Senior House, under the direction of Mr. VVen-
man, and the Junior House, under the direction of Mr. Wood. House
spirit has been, in my opinion, at its highest for a good many years. At
no time have members failed to 'Cget stuck in."
Once again we have provided honest participation in the School's
activities. We have won Inter-House Cricket, Sailing, Swimming and
Junior Cross Country, and have made an excellent showing in Inter-
On behalf of those graduating from Winslow, I would like to wish
all success to those returning, and to the new arrivals. We hope that
they will be able to maintain the high standards set this year and to
keep up the good work. They should remember that it is not whether
they come first but how hard they try.
This year Cucomme d'habitude"jwe have also dominated the aca-
demic. awards on Speech day, and we hope that when the Matriculation
Results come out we will once again emerge on top.
lNIelvin Reeves, Captain of House.
This year, for the first time, VVinslow House Juniors have been
treated as a separate House from the Winslow Seniors. They have had
their own Housemaster, Mr. Wood, and two House Prefects, Leeming
and Spicer. This arrangement has been extremely satisfactory to all
concerned, and has facilitated the development of true House Spirit -
arising where it should, among the younger boys. It is their enthusiasm
and vitality which have carried the House through the year. Their own
Housemaster and Prefects Ctogether with weekly meetingsl have
helped to knit them together as a functioning body, and little discip-
linary action has been necessary.
We believe that this House Spirit has been carried forward into
academic and sporting activities. The results from both were excellent.
Four out of every six of the academic prizes were won by Winslow
House. In sports the vigour and endurance shown by the younger boys.
particularly in the longer races, were a credit both to them and to the
School. The points they gained contributed a major part to the points
gained by the House as a whole.
Junior School should be the strong foundation of the pyramid of
students. We believe that, owing to the efforts of all concerned, the
School has a strong foundation in our House.

Reader fDearl , if you're on your toes
fAnd he that runs may readl,
You'll have found that at last ffor Time it goes,
And the Water beneath the Bridge it flowsj
It's the 100th. turn, as the First page shows,
For the 'Black 8t Red' indeed.
Yes, 100 times has the Editor
- The bad, the indifferent, the good -
Battered his brains, and toiled the more,
And called the business a 'cfrightful boref,
And knocked at the patient Printers' door
Far later than he should.
And we might have blazoned it Qtrumpet-wisej
In Black, and in Red Qand in Goldj,
And paraded it frontally, strumpet-wise,
And buttered it up, all crumpet-wise,
But we rather preferred to lump it, wise
To the fact we were growing old.
So here, at the back, in frolicsome vein
fSenility, eh? - or worse?l ,
lfVe have dropped a ridiculous daisy-chain
Of rhymes that fall like the Summer rain
CAnd we,ve made a fool of ourselves again?j ,
And weive skipped like the lamb, in verse.
And -- who knows? - for Time moves steadily on -
Qlf he that can read may runl
XV hen another long twelve-months has gone,
And another Summeris suns have shone,
Hlith 100 Editions to stand upon
YVe,ll make it 101.
