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: Presented by University School Old Boys' Association to John Timmis in appreciation for his untiring efforts as Headmaster at University School 1948-1970 Needless to say, the Headmaster was, for once, speechless, and, indeed, remained so long after the applause and the School Song had ended. For him, at least, it had been the greatest Speech Day ever. ACADEMIC PRIZES English D. Hardman, G. Stewart, D. Venables, A. Adams, C. Spicer, S. Keenlyside French D. Hardman, D. Angell, D.

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 of Admissions. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I will now ask lNIr. Jeffels to present the awards, and afterwards to give the address." H.M. 13
