JUNIOR SCHOOL RECORD .................................. Mr. R. F. Yates MANAGING EDITOR .................................. Mr. D. Kermocle Parr The Record in published six times a year, in the months of October, December, February, April, Iune and August EDITORIAL At the moment of the writing of this article, the School, standing with its massive back to Lake Ontario, presents a striking and rather symbolic picture. It is early evening, and in the still, blue half-light, out over the lake, are dark, low-hanging clouds, shadowing the horizon as far as the eye can see. Yet above the School, the sky is clear and studded with pale, early stars, and the Chapel tower stands out, sharply silhouetted and seeming almost resolute in defiance of the distant, obscure gloom. And so it is. Around us and far away have gathered the menacing clouds of war. We can see them and feel them in our everyday existence. But, an oasis of peace, the School stands unchanging, unmoved, as she has stood for three-quarters of a century. She has remained constant through dark days, and defied the buffetings of varying fortunes for longer than any of us can remember. So she will continue, for though new faces replace the old, and in turn are replaced again and again, though new names come. pause, and are gone, T.C.S. has grown to be something immortal, something indestructible. 2 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Nevertheless, she cannot but feel the War in which her country is involved. God forbid that the names once familiar upon our tongues should some day before their time live only in cold granite, engraved in memoried glory! But the School and her many sons will never falter. Each is a part of this nation, loyal in love of those attributes of freedom and religion which we defend, and unhesitating in the determination that these shall persist. So the School goes on, peaceful in the midst of warg and as new youth enters the doors, now opened for the seventy-fifth year, she stands unwilling but determined, and ready for any call which the cause of liberty may make upon her. -K.G.P.

Kovacs TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 3 K 1 fc, HAPEL DTES The Ladies' Guild has had the Chapel entirely re- decorated during the summer. The School is deeply in- debted to the Guild for the renewed beauty of the Chapel. September 17th: First Sunday of Term, the Chaplain preached. Instead of a text he read a letter from the Primate, after which he discussed patriotism. Stressing the unselfish type of patriotism, he pointed out that'Christ had chosen this type, and that we must follow Him. Sunday, September 24th. The Headmaster spoke in Chapel. He reminded us of certain of the Ten Command- ments, which must lie at the root of Christian conduct. How far from these principles have some of to-day's na- tional leaders strayed. "God is our hope and strength, a Very present help in trouble, therefore will We not fear", quoted Mr. Ketchum. Let us hold fast to our faith and ideals, though there may be dark times ahead, for very likely We shall be called upon to help bring back faith and Christian conduct to certain parts of the World A special prayer was offered in Chapel on Sunday, September 24th. This prayer, sent out by the Archbishop of Canterbury, is for use in time of War. 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Sunday, October Sth. Thanksgiving. The preacher in Chapel was the Rev. Briarley Brown, Rector of St. John's, Norway, Toronto. He spoke to us about the beauty of everyday life. He recalled to us the Well-known picture, The Angelus, which typifies the attributes of Thanksgiving -hard work, companionship, and over all the spiritual life. The Chapel had been beautifully decorated the day be- fore with fruits, vegetables and wild flowers of every kind. The ladies of the Chancel Guild were helped by boys of the Junior School in the work of arranging the decorations. Sunday, October 15th. The Chaplain preached. Taking the text "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth", the Chaplain said that our Lord is not simply setting a spiritual ideal, but talking plain, practical com- monsense when He promises not only happiness, but actual success to those who are not self-assertive but self-forget- ful. "Meekness" is to forget self and to think only of others and of the work which is to be done. It is not to be as- sociated with feebleness of character or hypocrisy. .-.9"f'j"- , hz?" ' 0: in 2 . .

C O0 Je if-M NOTES fum Gifts to the School Mrs. Hindes of Port Hope, the mother of the late George Hindes, twice Bronze Medallist, has given the School a complete set of the old "Red and Black", the forerunner of the Record, and also many of the early numbers of the Record. Mr. R. P. Jellett has given us a very fine set of repro- ductions in colour of some of the great masterpieces of Art and has sent funds with which to purchase frames for them. Mr. Clarence Bogart sent a Wonderful collection of new and little used novels, and other books to the School Libraryg they are already much in demand. Welcome to Mrs. R. G. S. Maier We are pleased to welcome to our midst this year Mrs. R. G. S. Maier. She and Mr. Maier are occupying Mr. Davidson's former apartment on the top ilat of Bethune House. We wish them every happiness, and we hope that Mrs. Maier's stay at the School will be a long and pleasant one. A half-holiday was declared on Monday, October 2nd, to celebrate the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Maier. Changes of Staff We regret to say that Mr. Davidson, senior Classics master at the School for three years, is no longer with us. 6 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD We wish him the best of success at Preston, where he is now teaching. We also miss Mr. Peck, who has left us to take up a career in insurance, with big-time football on the side. It is worthy of note that the number of Argo fans at the School has considerably increased. Good luck, Mr. Peck! Colonel Stevenson, dear to the memories of so many of us, has returned to the School as a regular master this year. We extend to him our heartiest welcome. Bigside is now going through its paces in the capable hands of Mr. P. B. Chantler, former star of the Queen's Football Team. We are glad to have him with us, and we hope to see him again in future years. No. 110 Squadron Our affiliated unit, No. 110 City of Toronto Squadron, under Squadron Leader Keith Russell, is the only reserve unit in the R.C.A.F. to be mobilised as yet. Visit of a Magician On the evening of Saturday, September 16th, the School was entertained by Mr. Edward Charles, who dis- played his very clever magic, and more than once com- pletely fooled us. We hope that in the future we may spend another such enjoyable evening. Intramural Sports Boys not on Bigside have been divided into three groups this year, to form an intramural league in various sports. It was natural that in selecting names for the groups. the Headmaster shhould choose among the famous in T.C.S. annals. The "Johnson" Group bore the name of the Founder of the School, the "Osler" was called after the tirst Head Boy: and the third group was given the TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 7 name of "Saunders", after the famous Old Boy crickcter and former secretary of the Governing Body. Last year at the Football Dinner, a learned member of the staff suggested that T.C.S. start playing "six-a-side" football in honour of Mr. Armstr-ong's new mustache. This year, the mustache has apparently been given up as a bad job, but the six-a-side football has come in triumphantly . . . . With Mr. Armstrong in charge, at that! Each group fielded two "sixes" and a series of matches were played that aroused great enthusiasm and developed much promising football ability. At the end of the series, Johnson's two teams occupied the 'first and second places with Osler "B" a good third. Picnics As Well as the annual New Boys' Picnic, which this year was held on September 17th, it had been planned to hold a picnic at "Trinity Camp" for each form of the School. The Sixth Form had their outing on September 24th, but unfavourable weather deferred the others. New Boys from the Old Countries The School is very glad indeed to extend a warm wel- come to some eleven boys who, except for the war, would have been at schools abroad. Charterhouse, Haileybury, Oundle, St. EdWard's, Westminster, Reading and several preparatory schools are represented, and the boys concern- ed seem to be adapting themselves' to their new environ- ment without any difficulty. 'kwifiayi 8 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD pi it . . . 5 Contributions On September lst, the T.S.S. Vandyck was due to sail from Liverpool. The boat-train which pulled out from Euston Station in London was crowded with passengers for America, for once again a crisis was upon us. Everyone felt the danger which was at hand and all hoped that they would be in safety before it broke. The ship left the dock and anchored in the Mersey. Orders had arrived from the Admiralty to paint her grey, and immediately great activity was to be seen on board The crew set to work to paint the masts, funncls and ventilators, and on each side of us was a tug bearing six men armed with paint brushes attached to long poles, with which to paint the sides. As it was night, the work had to be carried on in darkness. Not a light could be seen in the whole of Liverpool, while high overheard the balloon barrage floated. Early next morning we sailed from Liverpool, grey from the tip of the mast to the waterline. That day was uneventful. The next night, by means of a loudspeaker which was mounted on thc deck, we learnt that war had been declared. During the day, the stewards had been busy covering thc- portholes with black-out paper and tightly fitting pic-rcs of wood. As they had been painted over when the Q . TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 9 sides of the ship were painted, it was then impossible for any light to enter or go out. Light-traps were built at all doors leading to the open deck. Smoking or striking matches on deck was forbidden between dark and dawn. We had to carry lifebelts wherever we went, no matter where or when. The torpedoing of the "Athenian came as a blow to almost everyone on board, as she had left Liverpool only two hours after us, and was following the same course. The passengers became suddenly apprehensive and con- scious of the danger which might be lurking nearby. That night some slept on deck, with their lifebelts on, and some slept not at all. That night and the next day were the most dangerous part of the voyage, as at any minute we might have been torpedoed. Since no chart was posted showing our position, we were at a loss as to where we were at any time. The course zigzagged to such an extent that on this westward voyage we were sometimes, as we could see when the sun came out, headed due east! We were overjoyed when we saw the Hshing boats of the Grand Banksg and four days later the familiar skyline of New York presented the most welcome picture the Weary passengers had seen for two weeks. It meant that we had emerged from the Valley of the Shadow. -M.L.A.P. ll " x 1- f iiio xg 'I l-. , Qi sag nr 10 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD SAME OLD S.M. He'll always be the S.M. to me. To-day, we call him Lieutenant Batt. It doesn't sound right. Every morning now, shortly after eight hours, fond recollections of the S.M. flood my mind. I am on the drill square of the Seaforth Highlanders' training grounds. Directly in front of me I see Mr. Batt's counterpart. He is patient, kindly. He is a P.T. instructor. His voice at times rises a trifle as his brogue cuts through the salty mist of this seaport in September. But I think of the S.M. And as these 29-year-old back muscles creak protestingly, and these palsied hands tremble at an inferior "hips firm", I breathe a silent prayer of thanks for Mr. Batt, and his three-year contribution to my physique. We go through our paces spiritedly, methodically. Al- though these muscles which cut such fancy capers during school days now whine and creak, I'm not afraid. I look straight ahead at my instructor. Instructors, especially physical instructors. strike no terror in the heart of McPherson. For I have worked under Batt. That, to me, is like having an auto mechanic say he taught Henry Ford. I hope every student can grasp the portent of these words. Someday, and I clon't wish to be prophetic, a certain percentage of you boys will be on a drill ground. You'll be in the army. It will be all new. Except one thing. And that one thing will cause you to thank Mr. Batt just as fervently as I do now, even though I am 3000 miles away. The P.T. will be the same in the army. And, mark my words. if you have worked under Batt, your worries are over. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 11 You'1l hear familiar words and you'll do familiar exercises. Why? Because, right now, you are under one of the finest instructors in Canada. Watch him work. Study him. Then, students, remember his teachings. After a few days, when the P.T. becomes like break- fast to you, wait until after dismissal, when some of your "buddies" lie gasping on their bunks, muttering impreca- tions against drill sergeants. That will be your moment. Then you can turn non- chalantly on your side, raise experienced eyebrows, and say with perfect truth: "Not bad to-day. But Wait until I tell you about Working under a really tough S.M. He was at T.C.S. and his name was Batt." "That ....... " -Sandy McPherson V26-'28l x91-"5- ' Q.

Layne 12 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD LATE SEPTEMBER Late September, that month of "mists and mellow fruitfulnessn, has never failed to charm me. Men may speak of the delights of early spring, of the joy of mid- summer, or the beauty of winter, but for me the "sweet o' the year" is still the autumn. I have seen Canadian auturnns, the glorious red and gold tints in the trees, the fresh nip in the air, and I have seen English autumns, the grey mists, the early morning cub-hunting, and the agri- cultural shows, and it has left me satisfied. Autumn is the season of plenty, the season of content. The farmer has gathered in his crops and is free to stroll the uplands with dog and gun. The "Man-about-Town", released at last from the giddy whirl of the London season ,can turn again to his horses and hounds. Each and every one of us feels a new sense of wellbeing stealing over us as we watch the leaves slowly turning. Not for me the uncertain, and oftentimes rainy and cold, months of April and June. When Nature is awaken- ing and beginning to pulse with life, such a time is not for lazy and slothful souls like myself. The sultry and oppres- sive days of midsummer find me prostrated in the nearest armchair, eagerly lapping up liquid refreshment. Surely no life for a man! The bleak days of winter seem too desolate and bare of beauty to find a champion, yet sundry persons of my acquaintance have lifted up their voices and declared that it is indeed the "best part of the whole year, old chap." It is not until the first mists and showers of autumn alight on the parched land that I begin to expand. Moreover. do not the all-wise beings who govern us choose autumn as the best time to make war? As soon as the last sheaf has been carried in, the war drums begin to beat in the land. In Africa the raiding season is after the crops have been gathered, when the warriors, full-fed. grow restive and prideful in their native villages. Is it not likewise with us, the children of a noble race? TRINITS COLLIQCE SCHOOL RECORD 13 Above all, this autumn will surely remain fixed in our memory. For this September, Hitler let slip the dogs of war, and we are again fighting for our very existence against a tyrannous and oppressive people, who, neverthe- less, recognise autumn as "der tag." Oh God of our far- flung battle-line, grant that we may once again tread the uplands and look down upon the farmer gathering in nature's bountiful store, secure in the knowledge that the Angel of Peace has once again spread his wings over the land. -J.D.J. VALE I dreamed a dream . . . and in my dream I seemed to be walking, alone, in a huge, sandy valley, bordered on all sides by purple hills. Nothing stirred in the whole length and breadth of this vast plain. The sun was torrid and I sat down to rest awhile. Something moved as I sat, and I perceived to my horror that I was sitting on the hali- buried skull of a man. As I looked, a thin, reedy voice seemed to issue from the iieshless jaws and cracked teeth, and the dark shadows of the empty eye-sockets seemed to fix me with eyes long dead. The thin, high voice, like the sound of the wind Whistling over a bleak moor, addressed me: "Look on me, O Earthling, and take heed. Many aeons ago I, too, lived, laughed and loved. I gave no thought to the passing of the years, and here I lie, buried in this silent valley of the dead, doomed to lie all Eternity in this dread canyon of no return." The voice trailed off, and I realised with sheer, stark horror that I was listening to my own ghost. I HJ.D.J. 14 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD NO MORE TOMATOES The contestants in the Magee Cup Race, on October 9, were given added cause to offer thanks when the course of this race was altered at the last minute to frustrate the would-be tomato-throwers, who were lining the route of the procession, equipped with plenty of putrescent vege- table matter. Praise be that these villains are at last foiled! When or why this barbarous custom originated is a mystery, but it seems to go on from year to year with cumulative fury, each generation of rogues offering as his sole excuse, "I got it in my new boy year." To this we reply vehemently, "Phooey!" It is no justification for in- terfering with a School sporting event. If they must interfere with such events, why not go out any day of any week and throw fruit at the football team, or if the victims must be new boys, why not get after them when they are all together in the gym., as they are every evening? The answer would seem to be simple. Either the team en masse, or Mr. Batt, would administer their just desserts. If this is so apparently so, then is it not an act of cowardice to bully the new boys when they are incapable of retaliation? One of these offenders, somewhat irked by having received the proverbial lemon, actually submitted an article for publication in the "Record". He bristled with indig- nation at having been so unfairly treated. With many arguments he defended the practice as the natural and just thing to do. What could inspire such a sentiment? Why should the new boys suffer again the sufferings of their predecessors? Thank goodness that even that shadow of extenuation has this year been removed. It is to be hoped that this is the last year in which the notion will be even so much as conceived. However, it does seem rather a pity that it should die out before the TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 15 Headmaster's jesting suggestion might be carried out: that the tomato-throwers be made to run around the course and the new boys posted to try their own skill. ee--K.G.P. NEW BOYS' PICNIC, 1939. The morning of Sunday, September 17th dawned bright and sunny, and there was much in store for it. New Boys, appearing for the first time in their Sunday finery, of stiff collars and navy blue suits, were informed at the breakfast table that they would depart for the New Boys' Picnic half an hour after morning Chapel. By eleven o'clock everyone was ready . . . in old clothes now . . . and soon there was a mad rush for the nearest cars. There was room for everyone, however, and in a few moments the cars were speeding off. The destination was reached without mishap, and we all piled out and began to look around the spot. It was ideal . . . cool and shady, surrounded by a semi-circular grove of cedars to one side, on the other was a rather dilapidated wooden rail fence separating it from a fiat, stony pasture. Mr. Morris industriously prepared and lit a fire, and for several minutes we were busily occupied in finding suitable wood for the same, of which there was plenty. The rest of the morning was occupied with a spirited game of baseball, in which Mr. Ketchum, Langmuir and Pearson joined with a will. The lunch was interesting to Watch. A long line was formed, with much pushing and shoving, and hamburgers were meted out thereto, ino pun intendedj. Then came lines for seconds and thirds of hamburgers. Finally the ice cream and cones were brought out. Lines were formed for firsts, seconds and when it came to the line for thirds, it was found that there were not enough cones for the en- 16 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD tire line. This was overcome by boys eating the ice cream from their last cones, but leaving the cones for the next helping. In the afternoon a game of football was played, but the only way it was recognizable as such, was by the shape of the ball. Mr. Armstrong headed one team and Langmuir the other. The game was played entirely Without rules. The game of "football" having been finished the New Boys were again packed into cars and taken back to School after a thoroughly enjoyable day. -D.W.H. -'X' -. :Wx .

Another dragged a hopelessly useless foot along as he leaned heavily on the shoulder of a comrade, a spattering of dried blood scarring his forehead. This pitiful remnant of the once able-bodied, laughing lads approached their commandant, as he lifted weary eyes in response to an attempted light word from the leader.

The School played the first game of the season against a lighter Lakefield team. Somerville opened the scoring for T.C.S. by kicking a deadline after two minutes of play. T.C.S. continued to press for the rest of the quarter, but failed to score again. Lakeiield opened the second quarter strongly. St. Remy made a thirty-yard run to the T.C.S. five-yard line, and evened the score by kicking a. deadline two plays later. After this, Lakefield had a slight edge on play, but never threatened seriously. Somerville ran back a kick forty-ive yards as the half ended. Early in the third quarter T.C.S. scored a rouge. Duggan then completed three successive passes to Mc- Avity, Higginbotham and Somerville, who went over for a touchdown, which was not converted. Somerville later kicked another deadline for the School. The last quarter saw fast football, with neither side able to score. The School got within scoring distance when Higginbotham completed a pass to Somerville, but an attempted placement failed. In the last few minutes of play the Grove tried hard to score, and' were on the School's tifteen yard line when the game ended. 20 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Score:-T.C.S. 83 The Grove 1.

SCHOOL vs. THE GROVE At Port Hope, October 7th. Ideal weather provided perfect football conditions for the first home game of the season when the School defeated the Lakefield squad by a score of 13 to 1. The School took the offensive from the start, though Lakefield played hard-hitting football. After several good passes had been completed, LeMesurier kicked a placement for 3 points. In the second quarter, Somerville made a long gain on an end-rim. Two passes completed on con- secutive plays for an advance of forty yards put T.C.S. in position for a second placement, this time kicked by Somer- ville. In the third quarter, after some even play, Somerville intercepted a forward pass after Lakefield had recovered their own kick, and Higginbotham promptly completed a pass for 25 yards. At their five-yard line Lakefield in- tercepted a pass to postpone the touchdown, but it was shortly made by Higginbotham and was converted. Each team made a rouge before the quarter ended. In the last quarter the play moved up and down the field, but neither side made any spectacular gains and no more points were scored. Score:-T.C.S. 13, Lakefield 1. The line-up was the same as in the previous match. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 21 SCHOOL vs. our Boys At Port Hope, october 9:11. In this game the Old Boys again proved themselves too strong for the School team, and by virtue of greater weight and experience scored sixteen points to nothing. T.C.S. kicked off and Spencer made a nice run to begin a march down the field by the Old Boys. Soon after scoring a rouge, they recovered a fumble behind the line for a touchdown, which they converted. T.C.S. began to gain ground with completed forward passes, but early in the second quarter the Old Boys carried back a kick to our four-yard line and Cutten broke through on the third down. scoring a touchdown which was converted. On the kick- off Kerr gained about thirty yards, and Cochran then pick- ed up enough ground to reach a good position, from which he dropped a field goal. There was no score in the third quarter, though Kerr and Hogg made conspicuous gains and Robinson inter- cepted a pass. In the last quarter, LeMesurier did some ine plunging and the T.C.S. team as a whole seemed to be playing better football. Cutten for the Old Boys and Black for the School made good runs, and towards the end Cayley completed two fine forward passes by Duggan, but another was intercepted by Spencer just as the game ended. Cutten, Kerr, Elliot and Cochran starred for the Old Boys, and for the School, Duggan, Higginbotham and Le- Mesurier in the backfield, McAvity and Peacock in the line played very well. Score-Old Boys 16, T.C.S. 0. SCHOOL vs. PICKERING COLLEGE At P0rt Hope, October 14th. Pickering kicked off against a strong wind from the north. cold and raw. Recovering the ball on a T.C.S. fumble, they attempted a placement, but the ball went wide. Hall plunged very well for the visitors and with a 22 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD gain of twenty-five yards presently put them in position for a rouge. Armour intercepted a pass and made a nice gain for T.C.S., but the Pickering line held and Harris gained thirty yards just as the quarter ended. A rouge followed immediately. For a time T.C.S. broke through on almost every play, but Creed then managed to get a pass away to S. Harris, who made a touchdown, converted by Wood. After a series of bucks and quarter-back sneaks, Pickering kicked another rouge. Again they marched down the field and Hall plunged through for a touchdown, un- converted. McAvity completed a T.C.S. pass as the half ended. Early in the second half Pickering made another rouge. Then for a time the play moved back and forth in midfield, until McComb scored a touchdown on an end run. Taylor converted. Just before the end of the quarter, Creed ran almost seventy-five yards for a touchdown, un- converted. In the last quarter T.C.S. rouged twice and seemed to be playing much better football, but there were no outstanding plays, and the game ended with a score of 26 to 2 in favour of Pickering. Score: Pickering 26, T.C.S. 2.

Last year "Hughie" joined the thin ranks of scholars in the fast disappearing "Vth McGill" form. He wound up in his school career as an athlete by making the 2nd in Rugby and by playing in the lst Hockey Team for his third year, this time captaining the team.

He was soon distinguished in sports, as he was in Latin .... And, talking of Latin, official sources have it that he was so fond of the language that he even engraved a bit of it on his paddle when he became a Prefect! "Orderint dum metuant", he wrote, which, translated for the benefit of any lesser scholar than Eric, means, "Let them hate, as long as they fear". Vindictive fellow! Besides being a Pre- fect. Eric was on the lst Hockey and Football teams. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD He was an actor of distinction, and as the elderly millionaire in "It Pays to Advertise" he gave a per- formance that ranks with the best ever seen at T.C.S.

Even the "Smoker" society has lost an inexhaustible topic for heated debate. John, in a comparatively short stay in the School C36-'39J, distinguished himself in athletics and academic Work. Last year he was vice- captain of Football, and a Prefect. We understand that he is continuing to study i'?l at the University of B.C. Best wishes, John! KIRKPATRICK, H.

He became a regular member of that elite congregation known as "The Boys in the Smoker" and in his final year was one of its most distinguished members. He was a School Prefect, and held 2nd. Football and 3rd, Hockey colours. A product of the now extinct McGill course, he has passed on to the college 'way down in Montreal. There, we feel sure, he will make for himself a third and even greater name. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 27 CAYLEY, E. C.-"Ed.", smallish, blond, and oh, so inno- cent-looking, joined our ranks in '36. He proved him- self an ardent and able player of Hockey and Cricket, and before the end of his career was awarded high honours in both. In '36-'39 he became first a Senior, then a Prefectg and the boys in Brent House got "late lights" every so often, which were eventually put out by a small oificial bearing a large alarm-clock. "Ed." was one of the top-rank students of the Sixth and has now entered Trinity College and joined the C.O.T.C. We hope that we shall see him often these days, and that he will not forget us any more than we him. GIFFEN, P. J .-Perry James Giffen appeared in the Senior School in '36. His keen sense of humour and love of practical jokes made him popular, and his all-round ability made him a Junior in '38 and a Senior in '38-'39. His talents gained him several star roles in various School plays and a reputation in Bethune House as a foremost raiser of Cain. Though a staunch upholder of the Peterborough Examiner, Jim was Editor of the Record last year, which is why there appeared so many "Letters to the Editor"g and he was quite a prominent athlete. We are proud to turn him over to the University of Toronto. -1- GROVER, J. L.-John came to T.C.S. in 1935 from "Down Mexico way". During his four-year stay, he became quite a well-known figure, and in his final year became a Senior. He was the room-mate of the inimitable "Mex", del Rio, and at times the two of them might have been heard conversing in some incomprehensible tongue. They said it was Spanish, but nobody knew it anyway. No doubt at times it might have afforded a maximum of public relief to hurt feelings with a TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD minimum of consequences. John's marksmanship was excellent and he was Band-Sergeant in the Cadet Corps and a member of the Third Rugby team as well as being one of the top boys in the Sixth Form. He is now pursuing his studies at the University of Toronto. HYNDMAN, F. T.-Tom, neither tall nor dark, but un- deniably handsome, was one of the "Freshman Class" of '36, He showed ability both as a student and as an athlete, and last year became a Senior. He was on the first football team and the Gym. eight, as well as being in VIa. By virtue of his membership of the "smoker" society, Tom gained quite a bit of iirst-hand information about what was done "over there", mean- ing of course in France in 1914-18. No doubt his informant, as well as the rest of the society, will miss him, we are all sure he is bound to succeed in any academic field he may enter. JEMMETT, J. ff.-"Long John" Jemmett, probably the longest John we have seen for many years, came to us in the far distant past from Haileybury, which we understand, is within a snowball's throw of the North Pole. Last year "Long John" was a Senior, and a room-mate of the one and only "Bottle" Seagram. Judging from the peculiar noises that would emanate from that room, he was also an ardent swing fan. It is said that "Long John" intends to apply for a com- mission in the R.C.A.F. this year. Well he shouldn't have trouble with high altitudes anyway! Good luck, John! LANDRY, P. C.-"Mouse" crawled into these halls in '35 after a lengthy stay in the Junior School. During TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 29 his four years here, he distinguished himself in squash and cricket. He became a Senior in '39. "Mouse" was perhaps a misnomer for this worthy gentleman, for "Water-rat" would have been more appropriate, he loved the water so much that he spent no less than four years in it getting his life-saving certificate. Last year he tried to get away from us by going to school in Europe, but Mr. Hitler and his boys sent him scampering back However, we regret to announce that this year he has finally forsaken us for McGill. Good luck, Mouse. - LeMESURIER, A. S.-"Andy" arrived with a scholarship in '36. His career was varied and erratic. His passions were: doing anything crazy, concocting deep, dark secrets and telling everybody about them, and relating the exploits of Walter. "Andy" was a hard-working athlete, and amassed 2nd, Rugby, 3rd. Hockey, lst. Squash and 2nd Cricket colours, as well as winning the cup for the keenest athlete in his final year. During his last year he was a Senior, off and on, and was one of the bright lights of the Sixth Form. At one time he was champion thumb-tack sitter. We wish him the best of luck at McGill, where he appears to be con- tinuing his old occupation of bench-warming, this time for the Freshmen team. THOMSON. J. S.-Like others who came here that year, "Scholes" was a new boy in '37-'38. However, he soon got over that and in his second and final year became a Senior. He was a good all-round athlete, and could handle a basketball with somewhat more dexterity than he could a Latin verb .... ask Dr. Glover. In fact. such an all-round good fellow was "Scholes" that the only fault we could discover in him was a strange TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD obsession about a place called Etobicoke, or something like that. We understand that "Scholes" has gone to McGill this year, and We hope he likes McGill as much as McGill will like him. i. TURCOT, C. S. E.-"Turk", came to T.C.S. from Montreal in 1936. As a new boy, he was in the Fourth form. In three years' time he climbed from this form to the Sixth. He won his Senior Privileges and also got his lst. Team Colours in Rugby, Hockey, and Cricket in his last year. "Turk" was steady and good-natured, and was very well-liked even by the new boys. He's at McGill this year, where he is playing on the Fresh- man Team. Here's to your success "Turk"! WATERS, D. M. - In '36 "Bim" came to the old Alma Mater. That year he was on the 5th. Hockey and Rugby teams. The following year he made the 3rd. Hockey and Rugby squads and got his J .P.'s. In his final year he was a stalwart half-back on the Rugby Team and captained Middleside Hockey, as well as being one of the less dim bulbs in the mighty Sixth Form, and getting his Senior Privileges. He then weighed anchor and left us. Gone are the yarns of the grandeur and the glory of the Canadian Navy. No longer do the corridors ring with his "Hu1loa Keed". We hope that the combined call of His Majesty's Navy and Hitler will not prevent him from visiting the "School on the Hill". TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 31 VALETE Alexander, T. L.-V. C., 2nd. XII.

This naturally has affected us all in some degree and will probably continue to do so for the duration, which we trust is not too far distant. It is said that the civil life of a nation at War must be continued as normally as possible. Therefore our programme at school Will be as usual. Fortunate indeed are we that our School does not lie directly in the path or range of possible enemy bombers. This happy circumstance virtually constitutes a challenge to us to do our utmost in every way. For the first time since 1916 Mr. Morse was not with us for the opening of term. We miss both Mr. and Mrs. Morse greatly and trust they are enjoying their well earned rest. Their thoughts were with us however on opening day for a telegram of greetings and good wishes was re- ceived at break on the first morning. We miss also Mrs. Davidson and her cheery smile. Her place is hard to fill, as some of us have already dis- covered. It is with great pleasure that We welcome back Mr. James after a year's leave of absence. Mr. Brack, formerly in the Senior School, has returned to us again. We are delighted to see him and we breathed a sigh of relief when his boat docked safely. Mrs. MacPherson of Montreal has come to the Junior School as Nurse-Dietitian. We bid her welcome and hope she will enjoy her life and work with us. School Officials The following School appointments have been made: Captain of Rugby-P. E. Britton. Captain of Soccer-J. N. Gourlay. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Curator of the Library-I-I. P. Wills. Assistant Curator of the Library-J. W. Barnett. Warden of the Six Pockets--F. C. Hope. Assistant Warden-G. F. Crum. Lights Boy-G. F. P. Layne. ATHLETICS As has been our custom for several years. the School is again divided into Rugby and Soccer groups. In general. the younger and lighter boys play soccer and the others do rugby. To date the rugby team have played four games. They have lost three and won one. They do not appear to be a strong team this year and although quite weak at times they have proven that they are capable of a strong come- back. Their chief weakness is inexperience and everyone beginning something new must go through this awkward period. The games to date- Wednesday, October 4th., at Lakefield, lost 21-0. The team's inexperience showed up markedly in this game but at times they played well. Wednesday, October llth., Lakeiield here, lost 12-8. Much improved over previous week, lost game only in last few minutes by intercepted pass. Saturday, October 14th., with Ridley at Toronto, lost 59-0. Team seemed completely at sea except in second quarter. Wednesday, October 18th., with Cubs, won 15-0. Boys showed considerable rejuvenation, experience of the three previous games undoubtedly an asset. The following have represented the School team:- Britton, Crum, Heaton, Knapp ii., Keyes, Stewart, Barnett, Irwin, Symons, Layne, Murray, Wills, Howard, Vivian, Dignam. Perry. A 36 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Soccer Enthusiasm has been running high in the soccer squad this year. It is a pity that it takes only eleven men to make a full team! Lakefield visited us here on October 18th. for the first match of the year and we were fortunate enough to come out on the long end of a 5-0 score. The game, however, was by no means a lop-sided one and both teams showed some good play. The Lakefield team had had very little opportunity for practice and showed great sportsmanship in playing us despite this heavy handicap. A return game with Lakefield has been arranged for October 25th. and Crescent School visit us here on November 4th. Team:-Forbes, Webster, Briden, Gourlay Ccaptainl, Michael, Paterson i., O'Grady, Currie, Higginbotham, Hope iii., Sim, linesman: Jones ii. Library Again the Library is being much used by all members of the School. Our thanks to John Waters, an Old Boy of last year, who contributed a number of books to our shelves. J. S. Press Last year the experiment of a Junior School News- paper was tried and proved most successful. This year the J. S. Press is again taking shape and publication of the first number is expected by the mid-term break. The following editorial staff has been elected:- Editor-in-Chief-Mr. Page. Asst. Editor-in-Chief-Barnett. Staff Artist-Crum. Sports Editors-Wills, Britton. Form Representatives - Form III, Heatong Form II, Higginbothamg Form IA., Webster: Form I and Prep., Gourlay ii. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 37 Chronicle Sixteen Junior School boys have gone up to the Senior School and three have left for other parts. To them all we say adieu and good fortune be with you. The School had a most enjoyable picnic at Sylvan Glen on Friday, October the sixth. The weather was ideal and no cases of indigestion have resulted. The Junior School has attended two movies to-date-- "Stanley and Livingstone" and "Good-bye Mr. Chips". Mr. Morse and Mrs. Davidson have both paid flying visits to the School since the beginning of term. It was good to see them again. SALVETE Name Parent or Guardian Address Bovaird, George C. .........

I OLD BOYS' WEEK-END, OCTOBER 7TH TO 9TH, AND ANNUAL MEETING Some thirty Old Boys visited the School on the Thanksgiving week-end. An account of the Old Boys' football match, in which the Old Boys defeated the School 16-O, appears elsewhere in this number. The Annual General Meeting of the T.C.S. O.B.A. was held in the Gymnasium at 2.30, October 9th. In the absence of the President, the Headmaster, as Honorary President, was in the chair. A motion was passed that any member of the Association in good standing should, if he enlisted for active military service, become an honorary member of the Association for the full duration of his service. Mr. R. C. H. Cassels was unanimously re-elected as a repre- TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD 39 sentative of the O.B.A. on the Governing Body. Plans were discussed for celebrating the Schoo1's 75th birthday next year. The President's annual report, which was read to the meeting, follows below.

The directory should be completely compiled by the end of 1939 and has served a very useful purpose. It is expected that the directory will shortly be bound and dis- tributed free to all members through the generosity of one of our Old Boys. A Special Committee has been formed to provide for celebration of the School's 75th Birthday on May lst, 1940. You will shortly hear from this Committee and your co- operation towards the success of this celebration is earnest- ly sought. The financial condition of the Association has improved with the increased membership, and the Association ap- pears to be healthy in every respect. All of which is respectfully submitted. fSignedJ Argue Martin, President.

Saturday, June lst, has been set aside for what is hoped will be the largest gathering of Old Boys and friends of the School that has taken place. A special committee has been appointed by the Old Boys' Association and the Governing Body, sub-committees have been formed and are already at work. The 75th Anniversary Committee, consisting altogether of Old Boys, is as follows: The Headmaster QE:-4 Ofiiciolg Argue Martin, chair- man, W. M. Pearce, Convenor, Programme Committee, C. W.

W. Seagram, F. E. Wigle. Suggestions from Old Boys for a suitable programme for this important occasion will be welcomed by the com- mittee in charge. ANNUAL REPORT OF TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL OLD BOYS' ASSOCIATION, HAMILTON BRANCH For a good many years, Hamilton has been the source of a small but fairly consistent number of boys for the School. Consequently, when, in the re-organization of the O.B.A. in 1937, a provisional committee was formed in Hamilton, it was found that there were more or less equal groups of all ages. This made organizing a Branch a little difficult, as many of the older men had been out of touch with the School for years. However, as there was a pre- ponderance of younger Old Boys, the committee was ap- pointed from this group. 42 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD It was felt necessary to have a gathering of some sort and accordingly a dinner was held in February, 1938. The Headmaster was the principal speaker, and a constitution was adopted and officers elected. A large number of To- ronto Old Boys were present and heartily assisted in the launching of the Branch. A membership campaign was carried on with fair success, as it was the first year of the branch. In 1939 the Branch fared somewhat better. The annual dinner was held in March and was well attended by the Hamilton Old Boys. Once again we were fortunate enough to have the Head as our principal speaker. At this dinner John Alden, the president of the Branch for 1938, retired from the executive. Mr. Alden was thanked by John Campbell, the new President, and the Headmaster for the tremendous amount of work he had done in bringing the Branch into being. Our membership is now 48 and we look forward to a steady increase with the firm conviction that it will bring the Old Boys into closer contact with the School and with each other. This was the aim of the new organization, and if it succeeds it will benefit not only the School but every Old Boy who takes an active interest. TORONTO BRANCH GOLF TOURNAMENT A most successful innovation in Old Boys' gatherings was held at the Toronto Hunt Club on June 28th when more than fifty Toronto Old Boys-undaunted by a temperature down-town of 90 degrees F.-held a golf tournament. Participants teed off between the hours of 4.00 and 6.00 in groups of two, three, and four. The 19th hole was played at 6.30, after which a very jolly dinner was served at 8.00. Prizes for the golf were won by Bill Seagram U18-'25J, Gordon Ince C12-'16J, Bert Winnett C19-'27l, Bill Vaughan TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 43 C31-'34l, Tommy Taylor C26-'32J, and Eric Cochrane C10- '13J.

Gardiner Writes: In going through your issue of August, 1939, I came across the words to at song which brought back many poignant memories. I would like to point out that you made a serious omission in not giving the proper credits where they are due. However, this may charitably be written off to ignorance. I refer, of course, to "The New Boys' Song" which you ignominiously head "Another Old Poem". This T.C.S. classic was written by Mr. J. D. Ketchum, both words and music, for the 1923 Thanksgiving sing-song, held in the dining-hall. There were several other original compositions of his on the same programme, another outstanding one being "The T.C.S. Cadet Corps"-"where Pearce is taking two steps while Wright is taking one". Included on the same programme were "The School on the Hilln, "The Old Red School", numerous chanties and the fine tenor voice of Mr. P. H. Lewis, who sang several solo numbers, and, I am sure, will be able to verify all the foregoing. As a further check on the date, if you will refer to the records and to the names mentioned in the song, you will find that Boulton, Baldwin, Lyon and Phipps were very much the big boys, 49 was a pretty tough place, and "Pea- nut" Evans, Bert Winnett and Co. were in their last year as Juniors and yours truly had only recently arrived and was very much impressed with everything, which probably accounts for the very vivid memory of this occasion. 44 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD GO EASY, JOE!

I am your friend, and my love for you goes deep. There is nothing I can give you which you have not gotg but there is much, very much, that while I cannot give it, you can take. No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in to-day. Take heaven! No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this precious little instant. Take peace! The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy. There is radiance and glory in the darkness, could we but see, and to see we have only to look. I beseech you to look. Life is so generous a giver, but we, judging its gifts by their coverings, cast them away as ugly, or heavy, or hard. Remove the covering and you will find beneath it a living splendor, woven of love, by wisdom, with power. Welcome it. grasp it. and you touch the angel's hand that brings it to you. Everything we call a trial, a sorrow, or a duty, believe me, that ange1's hand is thereg the gift is there, and the Wonder of an overshadowing presence. Our joys too: be not content with them as joys. They too con- ceal diviner gifts. Iife is so full of meaning and purpose, so full of beauty beneath its covering that you will find earth but cloaks your heaven. Courage then to claim it: that is all! But courage you have: and the knowledge that we are pilgrims together, wending through unknown country our way home. And so at this Christmas time I greet you. Not quite as the world sends greetings, but with profound esteem, and with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks, and the shadows flee away.

Kemmode Pm: The Record in published six times a year, in tbe months of October, December, February, April, Iune and August School Spirit To state flatly that school spirit is all wrong would be to invite a howl of protest from here to Toronto. But it remains a fact that the current conception of it is im- perfect. An interesting experiment might be to select the student who is generally thought to have the most school spirit and ask him for a definition of the virtue with which he is so plentifully endowed. His answer would no doubt call for the fulfilment of a list of duties, expressed as "Love thy school as thyself" and so on, but his spirit, whether genuine or merely superficial and ostentatious, though laudable is quite useless. He goes to all the football matches and cheers him- self hoarse. He is elated when the School winsg he dons the metaphorical sackcloth and ashes when it loses. He does more than the average amount of back-slapping and "Nice going"-ing. In short, he has most' successfully assumed that veneer of very obvious "amor patriae" that 2 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD is loud and empty, "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Then, too, people capable of excessive sound and fury are generally also capable of a passion for dumping beds, waging chalk wars in study and other nefarious crimes. They are also usually disposed to do nothing actively con- structive either in class or out of it. So the little golden idol, as seen by its very possessor, turns out to be only coloured lead. The truth is, though, that the diminutive deity has been only partially described to us. He Whose cheering has Won him the honour of being thought the greatest patriot knows only the less important side of patriotism. Real school spirit is far from being an inert selfish- ness. a desire for MY friends, MY team, MY school, to Win everything. In its proper form, it is something con- structiveg it is the devotion of abilities and talents to the School. Everyone has something. Perhaps a boy is not good in sports or in his studiesg but there is some way in which he may benefit the School. Let him seek out this ability and exercise it to its fullest extent. School spirit is not only wanting the School to take, but giving to it. Let every student contribute as he is able, and the natural differences between them will take care of the rest. Surely it is important to learn a proper and construc- tive school spirit, for what is this but a model of patriot- ism. a preface to national spirit? -K.G.P. 1 I i TI-IE FIRST TEAM Back Row:-The Headmaster, W.

His text was I Timothy, VI, 19: "Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life." Mr. Jennings commented on the present insecurity, showing that Christianity is an Insurance Policy against it. The company's premiums and conditions are high, Mr. Jennings said, as befits such an old and successful concern. The document in which the conditions are to be found in the Bible. Sunday, October 29th. The Chaplain preached. He spoke of "Doubting Thomas", to whom he compared many Christians of the present day. Pointing out what there was in Thomas and in the nature of his doubt which finds its parallel to-day, the Chaplain observed that While Thomas was a doubter. yet he was a devoted disciple, a loyal and true friend to Christ, that Thomas was an honest doubter-he was in dead earnest, that Thomas longed for the truth, and would be satisfied with nothing less than the evidence of the sensesg that it is better to be convinced by moral and spiritzifal evidence. - -- 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Sunday, November 5th. The Rev. R. L. Seaborn. assistant at St. James' Cathedral, preached in Chapel. Mr. Seaborn took his text from St. Mark, VII, 34: "And looking up to heaven He sighed and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is Be opened." The preacher remarked on the significance of that sigh, ending by saying that "if you can rule your tongue you can rule the rest of your body." Sunday, Nov. 19th. The Headmaster addressed the School in Chapel. The Headmaster's Address The other day I was attracted by a cartoon in a recent issue of "Punch", that English weekly which combines wit and wisdom, humour and intelligence, the cartoon repre- sented the transformation that took place in a very mild- mannered and self-effacing oilice clerk when he enlisted in the army. First one sees him standing in line waiting for the recruiting sergeantg then drilling, and he seems to be growing taller, his chest larger, then rifle exercises, and he is getting more determined, then parade, when he is obviously very proud of his uniform and becoming self- confident, and finally one sees the timid little man suddenly become a very tiger of the front line, ready for mortal combat with anyone. These drawings brought home again to my mind the opposite natures of man: he can be kind, he can be brutal: he can love, he can hate: he can be generous, he can be selfish, he can be brave, he can be cowardly, he can be honest in thought, word and deed, he can be dishonest in thought, word and deed. And they brought home again to me the amazing number of capacities in the nature of man, often completely hidden even to himself until some stimulus, some inspiration awakens them. TFLINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 5 Each of us has inborn powers which can be developed beyond our wildest imagining, bringing about untold good to our fellow men and to ourselves, or if we develop the worst sides of our natures, bringing about much harm. Or, of course, they may not be developed at all, in which case we remain of no account in our communities. Constantly we are reminded that the dividing line between good and evil is often very narrow. Recently we have read of the downfall of one of the best known New York financiers, a leader in his pro- fession, a member of an old and widely respected family. A slight dishonesty led to more serious acts in an attempt to cover up and finally he was sent to prison for many years. A university president committed somewhat similar dishonest acts, and he too has suffered disgrace and ignominy. In a larger way, the leader of a great nation. though it seems to be generally agreed that he has done much to reconstruct his country, has flaunted the laws of humanity, and civilized man finds it necessary to rise against him and protect his hard won heritage of freedom. religion, and righteous dealing between man and man. We all of us desire to enjoy life and we know that ill- ness and disease of the body detract from that enjoyment: it is, however, probably true that illness of the mind and weakness of the spirit prevent more people from enjoying life than any bodily ills. Our health and happiness of body, mind and spirit is largely, I believe, dependent on four principal considera- tions: first, having faith in oneself 3 second, having worth- while objectivesg third, having the courage and intelligence to practice self-disciplineg fourth, having an understanding of values, finding out the first things and putting them first. Without objectives we are rudderless, and if they are not worthwhile ones our propellor is very small indeed. The finest objective I can think of is so to prepare ourselves for life that we may serve our generation well by making the 6 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD lives of some of our fellow men more full, more happy, and therefore the lives of some of the unborn more full, more happy. Without the ability to discipline ourselves we forget to steer and soon find ourselves in dangerous waters. It takes courage and it takes intelligence to practice self- discipline, but was a Worthwhile journey ever completed by drifting? Then, too, without an understanding of values, unable to seek out the first things and keep them first, we may put a coat of paint on the superstructure and overlook the leaks in the hull. I have left "faith in oneself" until the last because it is so very important. Without it, of course, we should probably never set sail on any journey at all. Now, you may ask, it is all very well to enumerate these four factors which help to lead to a full life and a happy one-faith in oneself, worthwhile objectives, self- discipline and a sense of values-but how can one cul- tivate them if he knows he is lacking in them? Do they come naturally through home life, through school, through companions, through reading, through hobbies, through attention to duty, through games? Yes, there is no doubt that all these sides of life do help one to develop a per- sonality which may be most attractive, but it is likely there will be a certain moral fibre lacking which is essential to the making of what we call real character, real strength and inspiration to do the right and to resist the wrong. There have been many and tragic failures because man is beguiled into believing that material success is all that matters, that his first and only objective is to conquer the concrete world about him in any way he can, and all happiness will be added to him. Always such happiness proves to be a very temporary thing, fading into boredom and cynicism, if not bitterness and self-reproach. Such men go from place to place, seek- ing new lands, new experiences. new faces. but they can- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 7 not get away from themselves and the futility of it all, and too often our hospitals become their home, no worth- while objectives left, no sense of values, no self-discipline, and even their faith in themselves shattered. It is a dismal picture but a very true and serious one. What is the reason for this glamorous but temporary success, followed by distress and discouragement? Is it not that such people have failed to realize that "man can- not live by bread alone" and that no man is always strong enough to rely solely on himself? That, I feel, has been the great mistake of the post-war era, and unless we take counsel it may be the mistake of the next post-war era. Man needs and must have a strong support, a guide, a loving friend, an ever present help in trouble, and where can we find such help and strength, such understanding and such inspiration, where can we find it but in our conception of God, the source of all strength? By prac- ticing the presence of God in our lives whenever we have a moment of quietness, here in the Chapel or elsewhere, there will come a serene and deep faith in ourselves and our mission in life, which no strain or stress can disturb, and we shall realize the all pervading truth of those words: "In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid what man can do unto me .... If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts, even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me." If you believe that I am right in placing such import- ance in faith in oneself, on worthwhile objectives, on self- discipline, on a sense of values, the knowledge of right and wrong, and if you agree that man is simply not strong enough always and in all circumstances to be completely self-reliant in these respects, then will you now and then ask yourselves where you can find the unfailing strength and comfort which man so often needs? And when you have found the answer, will you constantly seek to renew the source of all strength? . S 'l'lIlNl'l'Y C'Ol,.l.I'fill'I SCHOOL RECORD Sunday, November 26th. The Chaplain preached. Taking the text of Ecclesiastes XII, 1, the Chaplain said that the coming of Advent always reminded him of the Final Judgment. Recalling an amusing story of the ostrich's habit of hiding its head in the sand at the first sign of trouble, he suggested that many of us have that habit when trouble is brewing. But it is impossible to dodge facts: "as we sow in this life, so shall we reap in the next." Sunday, December 3rd. The Chaplain preached. He said that the season of Advent naturally brought to mind John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ. John prepared the way for Christ by bearing witness to him. We too must show our faith by bearing witness to Christ, not by empty words and pious phrases, but by leading a devout and Christian life. The Chaplain ended by saying that at no time was the need more urgent than the present. -.. i.l..1 t - - TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Q 'ig Qcliool 5 'O "Mi if M NDTES he p A Musical Benefaction The School is very much indebted to Mrs. Boyd for letting us have her grand piano. The instrument has been placed in the Hall, where it is in constant use, and con- tributes much to the musical life of the School. The Choir The Choir has been busy with practice for the annual Carol Service, and except for a few absences through ill- ness, all has been progressing smoothly. About thirty are engaged with Mr. Cohu constantly, and their hard Work should result in a service up to the high standard of previous years. Farewell to the Rev. and Mrs. Bruce Jennings The Rev. Bruce Jennings and Mrs. Jennings lunched in Hall on the eve of their departure for Port Credit. Rector of St. Mark's for the last five years, Mr. Jennings has been a steady friend to the School, and we have admired the strenuous and successful labours which have distinguish- ed his charge of the parish. We hope Mr. and Mrs. Jennings will find time to visit Port Hope and T.C.S. frequently. We shall always be glad to see them again. 10 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Visitors One Sunday the School had the honour of entertain- ing Miss Edith and Miss Ada Rigby, sisters of the late Dr. Oswald Rigby, Headmaster from 1903-1913,, Mrs. Grahame Orchard, wife of the Rev. F. G. Orchard, Headmaster from 1913-1933, and Miss Wilson and Miss Ellis, Headmistresses of Hatfield Hall School. Life Saving Life saving classes have started again. About forty boys are preparing for their Intermediate certificates, and eight for the Bronze Medallion. Christmas Show The Christmas supper and entertainment are to be held on December 19th. This year the show is being pro- vided by the Second Year boys, instead of by the New Boys, whose task it was in previous years. We hear that amusement of a high quality is being darkly prepared. Mr. Humble, Mr. Maier and Mr. Parr are in charge of these festivities. Visit of Dr. Maresch The truth about the conditions the Nazi occupation produced in Austria was given to the School in an address by Dr. Maresch on October 14th. Dr. Maresch, a refugee from Austria who is now teaching at Pickering College, spoke on "Nazi Germany from the Inside". His graphic description of conditions inside the Reich and the corruption of the Nazi party leaders left no doubt in our minds as to what Nazism means. Perhaps the most terrible indictment was to be found in the account of Dr. Maresch's young son first having no friends in his school . ,Wd as U .. 5 QNNXY WSJ? X. V .

At the end of his address he was kept busy for a considerable time answer- ing questions. -i- Gift of Pictures The coloured reproductions of the old masters given to the School by Mr. Jellett have now been framed and hung on the walls where they are much admired. The Allan Brooks natural science pictures given by the Hon. R. C. Matthews are now framed and beautifying the walls of the Junior School. Lecture by Col. Flu-long "The Passing of the Old West" was the subject of a most interesting lecture by Colonel W. Furlong, well-known author and traveller, delivered in the Hall on November 30th. Colonel Furlong illustrated his lecture with colour- ful lantern slides and held us spellbound with his stories of the Rodeo. Afterwards, the lecturer was good enough to stay to answer a ntunber of questions, not only about the West, but about travel in general. The School Will long remember this exciting lecture and all hope that Colonel Furlong will visit us again 1' some future date. Hallowe'en Hallowe'en brought a study-free evening on October 31st., and the New Boys held their usual inter-house trials of skill. 12 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The first of these was an obstacle race in the gym, over and under mats, bars and apparatus of all kinds. This was won by the Brent House new boys. fOr should we say by the Brent House prefects?i In ducking for apples in the Pool also, the Brent new- comers won by a small margin. A treasure hunt and re- freshments for all brought an enjoyable evening to a close. Aeronautics A class of eight or ten boys has been formed under the guidance of Mr. Lewis to study and discuss the rudi- ments of flight and ground training. The class is using as its textbook the Manual of Ground School Training published by the Canadian Flying Clubs Association. Symphony Concert in Toronto On Saturday, December 2nd., a small party went with Mr. Maier to Toronto to hear John Barbirolli conduct his New York Philharmonic Orchestra. The con- cert was held in Massey Hall. where we arrived barely in time to be allowed in for the opening Overture. The con- cert was in two parts and the main work of the evening was Beethoven's 7th Symphony, which concluded the first part. That day happened to be John Barbirolli's birth- day and during the intermission there was a presentation made to him. The second part of the concert consisted of three pieces. by Delius, Mendelsohn and Elgar. After the con- cert was over the conductor was recalled nine times in all, and finally to appease his enthusiastic audience, he played an encore. This really did complete the programme and we eventually left Massey Hall at about eleven o'clock. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 13 Visiting Football Teams The School lent the Bigside Football field for the play- off game between Peterborough and Belleville Collegiates on Saturday, November 18th.

Kovacs 14 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD I Contributions se ENGLISH AND CANADIAN SCHOOL LIFE ii Q Because of the war, many English boys are now at- tending Canadian schools. There is of course a difference in the systems but there are likenesses as well. My first impression on becoming a student in Canada was that it was most enjoyable to be able to rid oneself of one's stiff collar. This may sound ridiculous but the relief I experienced on getting up in the morning and not having to wrestle for ten minutes with my collar was enormous, for in England, or, rather where I chanced to be at school, we had to have stiff collars, grey suits, and black ties every dayg but this is a minor detail. English schools are for the most part larger and older. whereas Canadian schools tend to be smaller, and therefore they do not contain so many houses as the English Public School. I also experienced great relief in finding that Trinity College School was practically consolidated in one building, for when I was a "new boy" in England I found it very be- wildering: the school was spread over the Whole town. The Canadian schools, I believe are supposed to have copied the English "fagging" system and Ithink they have done it very well. Instead of shouts of "New Boy!" how- ever, there used to be in England an elaborate system of bells leading from the prefect's rooms to the "prep-room" where the new boys were herded. Their duties ran almost TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 15 along parallel lines but in England prefects were allowed to cook in their rooms and there always came the burden- some task of washing up dishes. A new boy's duties how- ever decreased as the year wore on and the jump from first year to second year was not so sudden as it is here. In work it is hard to compare the two countries, for in England a school would have the reputation of being either classical, mathematical or scientific and the other sides of one's education would be slightly neglected. But here schools seem to provide a good all-round education and leave the specializing to a university course, which I think is a very sound system. We also had no "spares", periods lasted for one hour each and in the summer term we had classes before breakfast. In sports the schools are again hard to compare. In Canada I think there is much more variety in sport, owing to the rather colder winters than are experienced in Eng- land. We used to play English rugby all through the Winter Term and half way through the Easter Term and for the other half we took up athletics and gymnastics. In the Summer term cricket was nearly the sole occupation, though we could swim, play fives or squash and tennis in our spare time. In fact, while schools in both countries have their points, if and when I ever return to England to further my education, I might try and make some suggestions along the lines of Canadian schools. -D.M.K. .i. . 1' - " A ,-..,-..,f,. we -f...-ws-- - 'Elisa " C' " , f ll..'X'a.

I f num: SCHOOL vs. RIDLEY At Vanity Stadium, Toronto, October 21st. The first of the Little Big Four games was against Ridley this year, in Toronto. A drizzle of rain obligingly ceased just before play began. T.C.S. kicked oi? and were given the ball on the Ridley 30-yard line for interference, but the Ridley line held and the School failed to make yards. The ball changed hands several times on kicks and fumbles, but presently Ridley drove down to the thirty. whence they kicked for a rouge. For a brief time things looked brighter, as after the School recovered a Ridley fumble, "Mouse" McAvity com- pleted a 15-yard pass from Duggan, and Dave Armour plunged for a short gain: but the advance was stopped and presently Ridley were again making progress. Riguers made a nice run of twenty-five yards to put his team in a scoring position, and Hartshorn went over. Ridley failed to convert their touchdown. Early in the second quarter Ridley scored another touchdown. which was converted. Then T.C.S. again re- covered the kick from a Ridley fumble, and McAvity gain- ed twenty yards on taking a pass from Duggan. When the School kicked, Ridley returned the kick. :ind once more McAvity took a forward pass for a good gain. TRINITY common scnooi. RECORD 21 Two more passes followed in quick succession, caught by "Woozie" Langmuir and MacKenzie lil but another was intercepted by Ridley. The half-time whistle went before any damage could be done. In the third quarter there was even play for a time. with both sides fumbling occasionally, then Ridley added another three points when Marcia got away a drop-kick. Just before the quarter ended, Ridley scored again with a rouge. In the last quarter there was another bright period. when the School recovered a Ridley fumble. "Swivel-hips" Armour went through the line for seven yards, Duggan on a quarterback sneak made another seven, and Somer- ville and Langmuir completed passes for 15 and 10 yards: but the team could not keep it up, and an exchange of kicks started Ridley moving up the field again. They scored another rouge, and a few moments later, after in- tercepting a pass, gained position to kick a placement. Then Ridley recovered a T.C.S. fumble and plunged over for a touchdown. Within a minute Davidson took a pass from Riguers and ran for still another touch, which was con- verted on the whistle. Final score: Ridley 31, T.C.S. 0. The teams: T.C.S.-Jones, MacKenzie.

The most closely contested game of the season was against U.C.C. on our ground. The School team played extremely well to hold their opponents to a score of three points to one for three quarters of the game. 22 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD After strenuous and very even play, half-time was reached with each team in possession of one point, scored by rouges. In the third quarter, the U.C.C. team kept the play more often in our half of the field, and added first another rouge and then a third point with a deadline kick. In the last quarter the U. C. C. average advantage of eighteen pounds in weight and a year and a half in age began to tell, and the weary T.C.S. team could no longer hold them out. Heintzman made two touchdowns in rapid succession, one of which was converted. U.C.C. then added two more points by rouges, and just before the game ended Jarvis went over for a third touch, which was also converted. Heintzman, Drinkwater and Jarvis starred for U.C.C., and of the T.C.S. team Higginbotham, McAvity and Jones were the best. Final score: U.C.C. 22, T.C.S. 1. The teams: T.C.S.-Armour, Higginbotham, Black, Somerville, Duggan Jones, MacKenzie, Peacock, Pearson, Pochon, McAvity, Langmuir' subs: Berkinshaw, Cayley, Holton, Robarts. U.C.C. - Manning, Poupore, Hart, Anspach, Corbett, Wedd, Little, Schevenger, Drinkwater, Devlin, Heintzman, Jarvis, subs. Osborne, Mills, Ross. SCHOOL vs. ST. ANDREVWS COLLEGE At Aurora, November 4th. The School kicked off well into St. Andrew's territory, and S.A.C. bucked 15 yards, but were forced to kick when third down was reached again. S.A.C. then gained posses- sion on a T.C.S. fumble and a forward pass was completed by Shields, who ran for a touchdown, which was converted. Hardly had the ball been kicked off when Hamilton caught another of those long, powerful passes and ran for a second touch, also converted. Both teams then settled down to ground plays, until at the end of the quarter Pocklington kicked a rouge for S.A.C. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 23 Soon after the second quarter began, "Woozy" Lang- muir, who had been doing some magnificent tackling, was injured and had to retire from the game. "Higgy", our fast-moving captain, made a beautiful 20-yard gain on an end run, but to no avail, as St. Andrew's intercepted a pass on the next play, and ran it back. The Trinity line held and finally got the ball, which was kicked to centre field. Gourley of S.A.C. made a spectacular end-run for another touch, converted. It was immediately followed by another one on a buck, not converted. Higginbotham was injured on the play and was carried off. The terrific weight of the St. Andrew's team began to take its toll. Grass scored a rouge to end the quarter. At the start of the second half, Martin, the S.A.C. captain, made a touch, converted. Once again both teams settled down to line plays, but the St. Andrew's weight steadily pushed us back, until Gourley again bucked for a touchdown, which was converted. Mustering all resources, T.C.S. managed to prevent any further scoring in that quarter. In the final quarter, first Martin, after a run almost the length of the field, put the ball in scoring position, and Grass took it over. The touchdown was converted. Then the series of major scores mounted against T.C.S. A dizzy succession of forward passes were taken and the ball carried over for touchdowns, Hamilton, Shields and Mar- tin were all successful. Then the game was finished by second-team substitutes on both sides, without further score. Final score: S.A.C. 64, T.C.S. O. While regretting that we could only field against them a light and inexperienced team-S.A.C. had an advantage of an average two years' in age and thirty pounds in weight per man-we wish to record our admiration for the St. Andrew's team. They proved against other teams in the Little Big Four series that they were of real cham- 24 'i'R1N1'rY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD pionship class and deserve every congratulation on their triumph.

There was a fair team, though very lightg no games were won, but the team fought hard and gave their best. In the S.A.C. game the Thirds failed to take ad- vantage of scoring chances and were outkicked. Lost 6-14. Cobourg High School Intermediates, with a big ad- vantage in age, weight and experience, rolled up the large score of 43-03 against U.C.C. the Thirds again tackled a heavier and more experienced team and were defeated 18-1. There were few outstanding players. Lawson, the captain, led the team well, and the tackling of Warburton and German was usually excellent. Middleside House Game Brent House won the inter-house game this year by a score of 18-12. Their combination and plays were superior to those of Bethune House. In the first quarter Brent marched down the Held on a series of bucks. Walcot went over the line within five TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 25 minutes for the first touch. Brent got two points on rougfes before the end of the quarter. In the second quarter Bethune picked up coiisidexuihly. Knapp intercepted a forward and scored a touch, whim-T1 was converted. In the third quarter Brent got their second tout-lig Cawley carried the ball. Knapp received a forward pass and scored another touch for Bethune which was convert- ed. Brent got another point on a rouge in this quarter. In the last quarter Brent outplayed Bethune. Kovacs recovered the ball, which had been fumbled, behind the line for another touchdown which gave Brent the game. LITTLESIDE Littleside played three games this year, the first and third against Lakefield and the second against St. Andrews. They succeeded in defeating Lakefield both times by a wide margin, but were unable to hold out the heavier S.A.C. team. The first game with the Grove was noteworthy for McLean's running, Fairweather's bucking and Campbe1l's tackling. McLean scored two touchdowns and Dalton and Greene each got one. Three converts, two rouges and a deadline kick made up the remainder of the scoring. The score was T.C.S. 263 Lakefield 6. Littleside were heavily outweighed in the S.A.C. game but put up a good fight in spite of this. McLean and Greene starred in this game. The score was 30-0 in favour of St. Andrew's. In their second game with Lakefield. Littleside was again successful. McLean, Waters and Lambert were out- standing for the School. The final score was T.C.S. 27, Lakefield 5. 26 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The Littleside House Game Bethune won this traditional battle this year by a score of 8-1. Their team was much stronger, containing nine of the thirteen Little-side colours, but Brent House put up some stiff opposition. In the last half Brent pressed hard and several times were within an ace of scoring. Lambert, who played an excellent game, scored the touchdown for Bethune. Strong, Fairweather and Mc- Lean stood out for Brent House. Bethune House scored two rouges and a deadline kick in the second half and Brent gained their point on a rouge.

A fine cup has been presented for award to the winning team, to- gether with individual cups for the players. After a number of games had been played, the teams were divided into two sections for playoffs. In the "Minor Championship" Final, Mr. Morse's team beat Mr. Lewis's in a replay after a tied game. At the time of going to press, one game between Mr. Dixon's "Butchers" and Mr. Humble's "Bees" had left the Major Championship un- decided. In a House match, Brent beat Bethune in overtime, 2-0. The Kicking, Catching and Passing Competition This contest was won by Hart of Brent House. About twenty-five competitors entered this year. LeMesurier came second and Black third. SQUASH RACQUETS The Invitation Tournament Campbell Radcliffe of the Badminton and Racquet Club of Toronto, beat Charlie Seagram, Ontario junior champion, 3-0, to win the Trinity College School fifth invitation squash tournament held on December Znd. and 3rd. Radcliffe uncovered an assortment of strong passing shots, and drove his way decisively through the last game, winning the match, 15-12, 18-16, 15-2. Albert Lee of Montreal won the consolation tournament, beating Tony Griffin of Hamilton in close games, 15-16, 15-14, 18-15, 15-9. 30 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The turning point of the tournament came when Rad- cliffe won from Harold Martin of Montreal, former Quebec champion, after Martin had played superb squash to beat Vickers of Toronto.

At long last a most creditable sketch has come forward, the work of Crum and Murray of Form III. We think it a very praiseworthy effort and hope the mighty moguls at the head of the Record staff will permit it to be used. It always seems rather trite to mention the weather in these introductory remarks, but it has been so extra- ordinarily fine this autumn that we cannot resist the temptation to remind ourselves of our good fortune in this regard. The weather being what it was has made possible a much longer soccer season than is usual. This has been in large measure responsible for an unusually successful intramural soccer league, more about which appears else- where in this number. The Record on behalf of the Junior School has much pleasure in welcoming to our midst Mrs. Brack and daugh- ter Penelope. Mr. Brack's cheery smile has been even brighter since mid-term and we can readily understand why. DISTINCTION DAY A new system has been inaugurated for rewarding merit and perseverance in the Junior School. On the unanimous vote of the staff, a "distinction day" is granted to any boy or group of boys who have, over a period of weeks, shown special improvement or application to their work or jobs assigned them. This may apply to any field, academic, athletic, or extra-curricular. Apart from the honour of being given this distinction the boys thus rewarded are given some tangible reminder of their googl rum-k, generally in the form of a special J. s. FOOTBALL: 1918.

ATHLETICS Since the mid-term number of the Record the Rugby and Soccer seasons have been brought to a successful con- clusion. The rugby team of this year, while not a strong side. made several very good comebacks. Chief of these was their effort against U.C.C. here on Saturday, October 29th. when they came out the victors by a score of 11-5. It was an uphill battle for them but they proved that they had what was needed. The following Saturday, November 4th.. they met a team from Christ Church, Toronto, who were much too good for them and our visitors emerged the decided Winners by a score of 42-6. The squad also played a local team of boy scouts on two occasions and won by scores of 15-0 and 5-O respectivew ly. Several encounters with the sixth team also took place. in which the Junior School were victorious on all occasions but one. The following were awarded Rugby Colours:-Britton fcapt.l, Symons, Heaton, Crum, Stewart, Knapp, Keyes, Murray, Layne, Perry, Irwin, Wills, Vivian, Howard. Dignam, Barnett. LIBRARY Once again we say "many thanks" to Knapp and Heaton, who contributed books to our shelves. We are always glad to receive more books, as the Library is in continuous use. Any J.

The teams were very evenly matched and the ball did not seem to stay for very long at either end of the field. Passing and dribbling were good for both teams, but too many shots were missed in front of the goal. Crescent got the first goal before half-time and T.C.S. tied the score in the second half.

Only six points separated the first team and the last team, which is an indication of the closeness of the competition. Three points were awarded for a win and one point to each team for a tie.

CHRONICLE On Thursday, November 30th, the Junior School en- joyed an illustrated lecture by Col. Furlong on the Romance of the West. The handsome coloured prints of Canadian wild life which have appeared along our corridors are a source of much interest. We are indeed grateful to the Hon. R. C. Mathews for this splendid collection. The School is much obliged to the Librarian for his expert repairs to the many dilapidated volumes on our shelves. Britton, Gourlay i., and Wills had a vain trip to Toronto to see the Ottawa-Argo play-off game, as tickets were not available. We hope the hockey games were not too much of a let down. Two plays are in production for the Christmas end of term festivities. We will not make any predictions about their success, but we feel rather optimistic at the time of writing. The hrst number of the J.S. press for 1939 has ap- peared and retlccts great credit on the Editor-in-chief and his staff of helpers. An exchange number has also been TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 39 received from Bishop's College School, Lenoxville for which we thank them. To the boys of the School and to all our readers we extend our best wishes for a happy Christmas and an en- joyable holiday. "EXAMINATION DAY" In my estimation examination day is the worst day there is. On the night preceding the exams I lie awake in bed wondering whether Eliot came before Pym or how Buckingham died. I try to say that stanza of "The Cloud" to myself and find that I can't remember whether there is a comma at the end of the third line or not. Then to arithmetic, how do you find the square root of seventeen thousand, three hundred and nine? In the morning I reach for my book to find out the things that puzzle me. But in the examination room, when the papers are given out, it is not half as bad as it seems. When I read over the questions and see, "In what order did Eliot, Hampden and Pym die ?" Whew! I'm glad I looked that up this morning. Then the Lit. exam, "Who wrote "The Cloud"? Oh dear! What was the chap's name, let's see: Shelley! Ah. that's it, Percy Bysshe Shelley. "How did he die?" Oh, he was drowned somewhere in Italy. After I've handed in my paper I grab my book to see whether or not I got the tenth question right. When the exams are over I am very relieved. This is written from a schoolboy's point of view. I don't know what the masters think of examsg to them it is probably a bore, having to read a lot of papers, most of it trash, and give marks for it. So I think that probably they like exams even less than we do. -P. Layne. -lTi.1 l 40 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD SALVETE Name Parent or Guardian Address Thompson, J. P. ..... ....... .H . W.

Campbell, Colin Glasscog London: Alex. Graydon, T. B. King, Central: Hugh Ketchum, Eric Morse. Elections in Montreal, Winnipeg, and the Pacific Coast Branches have not yet taken place. The new Committee meets for the first time about the middle of January, and the officers of the O.B.A. for 1940 will be elected from among the committee members. .li SEV ENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE The two sub-committees of the Seventy-fifth Anni- versary Committee, on programme and attendance, have met in November and December. At enthusiastic meet- ings under the chairmanship of Buck Pearce and Charles Burns, respectively, plans have been outlined to make the Anniversary celebrations an outstanding success. Probably the programme on Saturday, June 1st, will include the ceremonial arrival at the School of an Old Boys' cricket team garbed in costumes of 1865 in a horse- drawn vehicle of ancient vintage, and the temporary re- surrection of the old Tuck. Other possibilities are trips to points of interest such as the Shinny Bush and Duck Harbour: also golf and several cricket matches, with a dinner at night. The Committee will do its utmost to re- create at the School the atmosphere of bygone years. To ensure the largest possible attendance, local attend- ance committees are being formed in every centre where there are even four or five Old Boys. Thesc will make sure that adequatc transportation facilities are provided. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 43 It is possible that special trains with sleepers will be run from some of the larger centres such as Toronto. Hamilton, Montreal, and Ottawa, which will arrive in Port Hope the night before and lie over in a siding close to the School. Arrangements are being made with local hotels to pro- vide accommodation for Old Boys Who Wish to stay over the Friday or Saturday night. These plans are tentative, awaiting approval by the general Committee in January. As soon as it is decided. the programme will be announced. Old Boys are urged to plan with old School friends to meet at Port Hope on June lst: and those from more distant points, knowing about the celebrations this far in advance, may possibly be able to make any visits they are planning to Ontario coincide with the biggest date on the School's calendar, so far. LONDON ANNUAL DINNER The London Branch dinner was held at the London Hunt and Country Club on Friday, November 10th, 1939. The guest speaker was Dr. W. E.

The Head- master replied to the toast to the School, describing the present School and how it was affected by the War. After the speeches, in a Crelativel hush in the con- versation, the gathering was electrified by a cry: "One-two- three, yea Argos!", as three daring Toronto visitors hastily took cover beneath their table. An old School song written by T. C. B. deLom about 1920 was sung to the tune of "The British Grenadiersn, together with many other songs, from "Drink to me only . . . . ", to the "Beer Barrel Polka".

Kei-mode Parr Tbe Record in published :ix time: a year, in the montbs of October, December, February, April, Iune and August EDITORIALS Our Anniversary To most of us, a period of seventy-five years is an in- terminable time stretching back almost into the Middle Ages, and 1865 is a date, far in the dim past, when men and women wore funny clothes and there was no such per- son as Glenn Miller. But in 1865 there occurred a birthday, and a birthday, too, that has meant a great deal to each and every one of us. In that year Trinity College School was born. In that year there came into being the foster-mother of us all, whose thousands of progeny, better and happier for her guidance and training, though scattered from end to end of the earth, lhaving perhaps nothing in common but her intluencel are united by the common bond of her in- fiuence. Seventy-tive years is a long span, and the School has well withstood the test of time. She stands now as proud as ever, having surmounted all difliculties and ready to con- tinue spreading her influence, wisdom and enlightenment among many generations to come. We are proud to wel- come in her seventy-fifth year, and to herald her birthday on May lst. --K.G.P. 2 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Union Now? Some time ago, we had the very good fortune to have Captain Philpott speak to us on the subject of the present war and the peace which we hope will soon terminate it. Captain Philpott spoke with heartening coniidence RS to the ultimate result of the war: he seemed to think that the chief cause for worry was the nature of the final settlement. Obviously it must be one designed to prevent further outbreaks of war, and one which will place in un- challengeable supremacy the civilization which the auto- cratic would-be Caesars are doing their best to overthrow. In unity there is strength. Capt. Philpott cited and enthusiastically supported a new plan of federalism set forth by Mr .Clarence Streit in a recent publication entitled "Union Now". This plan is to unite the democracies of today - Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France. Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the Union of S. Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States-into a single body under a federal system of government similar to that of the United States and of Canada. Colonies would be pooled and would remain as subject states, entry to the union would be granted to any state having the required quali- iications. This is designed to form a united front too formidable to permit aggression, and in time to build up a uniform high standard of civilization throughout the world. In this plan Mr. Streit eliminates the flaws that proved the downfall of the League of Nations. Like its parent, the union of democracies is designed primarily for the pur- pose of preventing war. Unlike the League, the union would have such a government as to make it move as a nation: and its legislature would have behind it the full power of its component states. Furthermore, it would not be a conglomeration of countries each striving to further its own ends, nor would it be a battle-ground for minor TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 3 disputes and petty jealousies. The union must needs be not a group of nations, but a single one. Certainly this is a noble ideal, and it is to be hoped that some such world order will be achieved to check for- ever the threat of selfish nationalism and inevitable con- sequent war. --K.G.P.

Be with them rin the hour of danger, strengthen alll! in the hour of weakness, sustain and comfort them in the hour of sickness or of death. Grant that they may be true to their calling and true always to Thee, and make both them and' us to be stroig to do our duty in Thy service, through Jesus Christ our Lord. CAROL SERVICE The Chapel was filled as usual for the annual Carol Service on the last Sunday of the Michaelmas Term. All enjoyed the singing and the Choir is to be congratulated on maintaining the standard of former years. Mr. Cohu was well rewarded for his long and hard effort by the ultimate fine renderings of the carols heard that Sunday afternoon. The order of service was:- Processional Hymn-Adeste Fideles.

The Chaplain preached on the Conversion of St. Paul, taking the text Acts 26:19, "I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision." It is, he said, worthwhile to try to make that event real to our- selves, to ask what happened, what sort of man it happen- ed to, and what resulted from it. St. Paul was a prophet, a saint, a hero, a genius, but behind all that there is Paul the man-the impulsive, en- thusiastic, loving and lovable personality, full of human weakness and human temptations, which he fought and conquered because he followed his conscience, and his con- science led him to the feet of Christ. The Rev. C. R. Spencer of Bowmanville preached in Chapel on Sunday. January 28th. Taking for his text 6 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD "Blessed are the pure in heart", he pointed out that our thoughts are the roots of our words and actions and that if we sow thought, we reap a habit, sow a habit, we reap a character: and if we sow a character, we reap a Destiny". , The preacher in Chapel on Sunday, February 4th., was the Rev. Canon Sawers of Toronto. He took his text from the Gospel according to St. John, 6:3: "And Jesus went up into a mountain." He pointed out to us that "mountain tops were the landmarks of the Bible", and spoke particularly of a few of the twenty-tive or thirty, which are to be found in various parts of the Bible. First Sunday in Lent. The Chaplain preached. He spoke on Penitence, from Matthew 5:20. The true form of Christian discipline is that we should spend more time in the conscious presence of Christ. This produces the true form of Christian penitence- the realisation of the difference between ourselves and Christ. If we see to it that the influence of Christ is stronger upon us every day, we shall become, not merely "good", but co-operators with Christ in the redemption of the world, channels of the Holy Spirit by which mankind is sanctified. On Sunday, January 14th., Archbishop Fleming of the Arctic preached the sermon. Archbishop Fleming took his text from the Epistle of Paul to the Romans: "Abraham was strong in faith, giving glory to God." He showed us how "God helps man to be the man he wants to be", illustrating his statement with several incidents of life in the Arctic wastes. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 7 LORD TWEEDSMUIR MEMORIAL SERVICE The nation mourns Lord Tweedsmuir, our late Gov- ernor General, who died on Sunday, February 11. On the morning of Monday the 12th, a special service was held in Chapel and on Wednesday evening, February 14th, a Memorial Service was held. The lesson was a singularly appropriate extract from "The Pilgrim's Progress", and the Headmaster briefly addressed the School. He spoke as follows: To-day in Ottawa the fimeral service was held for our late Governor General, and memorial services were held in most of our cities and towns. In four years John Buchan came to know and admire Canada perhaps better than any of his predecessors, and Canada came to know and admire him. I am not going to attempt to relate the details of his life, for you can read those in any reference book, but I do want to draw your attention to one or two aspects of his career. He was the son of a man poor in this world's goods but rich in faith, and rich ir1 learning, a Scottish Presby- terian minister. John Buchan went to the village school, and last night I read some remarks made about him by one of his classmates. He said that John Buchan had never been a distinguished scholar at school, indeed his name had appeared more than once in the failure book, but he stuck at his tasks without discouragement, however difficult they may have been. By doing this he did not find it necessary to become a book-worm but played with the other lads and got into the normal pranks with them. In his early days, then, John Buchan learnt how to give his attention to his work without in any sense be- coming different from the normal boy. He paid most of his own way through college by winning bursaries and scholarships and practising economy. Difficult days he must have had, many of them, but the uses of adversity 8 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD to him were many, for he came to know what it takes to make the world go round. Masefleld, the poet laureate, has written "It takes a deal of pain to get the whole world up and dressed and back to bed again," and John Buchan learnt that early in his life. He learnt, too, how to lose himself in his imagination, weaving stories about characters and situations, and it was not long before he was writing himself. To-day we think of him as one of the most distinguished of our story- tellers. In Canada he set himself to spare no pains in order to know the country and its people, not just the diplomatic and society group, but the plain man and woman who know the pain it takes to get the whole world up and dress- ed and back to bed again--but do not grumble nor flinch from it. He met these people all over our Dominion, in the mines, on the farm, in the factories, on the coasts, in the Arctic circle, and by meeting them and talking to them he came to know and understand the very life blood of our country. In the London Times of this morning, Lord Tweeds- muir's predecessor, Lord Bessborough, quotes from a letter he received from Lord Tweedsmuir on the day his death was announced. In it he said "I shall find it hard to leave Canada for I have got my roots down pretty deep," and we know the truth of that remark. In the same paper Lord 'lwveedsmuir is quoted as having said that "Canada can never compete in numbers with other countries. Her job is quality, not quantity: not a vast population but a race of elect and splendid men and women who will be light bearers in the world: such people can be trusted to use for the right ends Canada's incredibly rich natural resources." These are inspiring words, and they should fire us with the will to make this vision come true. Canada has lost a great and good Governor General and the Commonwealth has lost a wise and capable TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 9 administrator, ever faithful to his duty. What he has done and what he has been will live after him in this Dominion, for Canadians will not soon forget this man who lived among them a short time but found his way to their hearts by his simplicity, his dignity, and his sense of duty. Of him it may be truly said, "He has run a good race and kept the faith." Chapel Account, Sept. '38-Sept. '39. Receipts Balance on hand, Sept., 1938 ................... .

R. C. Matthews, P.C., has been elected a member of the Governing Body of the School, and we are proud indeed to welcome Mr. Matthews to the ranks of those who guide our destinies. The School has never before had a former Cabinet Minister and a member of the Privy Council on its Board and the wisdom born of wide and responsible experience which Mr. Matthews will bring to the meetings will be of much value to the School. Mr. Matthews was first elected to the House of Com- mons in 19265 he was re-elected in 1930, and in 1933.he was appointed Minister of National Revenue in Mr. Ben- nett's cabinet. He retired from active politics in 1935. Cricket has long been Mr. Matthews' principal hobby and he has spared no trouble to make the great attraction of the game more widely known in Canada. In 1936 he took a Canadian team to England, and by the success of the tour in the heart of the cricket world, he showed that Canada might soon be able to send teams to take part in test matches. Mr. Matthews has for a number of years taken a deep and generous interest in the School, and we are now happy to think that he is one of our Counsellors. The Strathcona Silver Medal Fairweather won the Strathcona Silver Medal in shoot- ing this year, averaging 97 out of 100 in two ten-round shoots. 12 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The 110th Squadron The 110th Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force, with which the T.C.S. Cadet Corps is affiliated, is now over- seas. It has the honour of being the first Canadian Air Force Squadron to go on active service abroadg we oifer Squadron Leader Van Vliet and his oiiicers and men the congratulations and good wishes of a School proud to be linked with them. .li The Football Dinner On Thursday, December 7th., 1939, the annual Foot- ball dinner was held. Bigside and the Captains of Middle- side and Littleside Rugby teams attended. During the course of the dinner there were several in- teresting speeches. The Headmaster welcomed the visitors and commended Bigside on its admirable display of pluck throughout the season. Mr. Duggan and Mr. Burns both made speeches, after which Mr. Chantler. the coach, was called upon to speak. He thanked the team for its great co-operation throughout the season, and at the end of his speech he was presented with a bag of jelly beans by the team. The Headmaster then announced the presentation to the School of a cup for the most useful player on Big- side, and by popular vote of the players it was awarded to the captain, Higginbotham. After amusing speeches by Mr. Dixon and members of the respective teams the football supper ended. School Dance The School dance is being held on April 12th. and will take the form of an anniversary dance. A nine-piece To- ronto orchestra has been engaged and will play from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. Old Boys who wish to attend should write to the Bursar for tickets at 33.50 a couple. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 13 The School Play This year the School Play is "The Three Wise Fools", by Austin Strong. The play is a comedy in three acts and the principal players are Mrs. Maier, Langmuir, German, Keegan, and Campbell. The production is in the hands of Mr. Parr and the performance is expected to be on April the 13th. Mr. Armstrong's Departure Mr. Armstrong left us in the middle of the term to join the R.C.A.F. He will be badly missed in the gym and games departments, and it makes us very sad to think that his cheery presence is no longer with us after so many years. We wish him the best of luck and happy landings when he enters upon his new duties. The Headmaster on the Air Is is not often that one may use one's radio with im- punity during study. But such was the case on Tuesday, February 135 and excitement ran high, for the Headmaster was speaking over the radio. Mr. Ketchum spoke on "Boy Away from Home", tell- ing of the kind of education boys receive at private schools. He began with a brief history of these institutions, and went on to describe the usual routine and course of study aiforded in such a school. This most interesting talk was broadcast over the national network of the C.B.C. Pancake Toss The annual pancake toss was held on Shrove Tuesday, February 6th. A representative from each form and one of the Prefects took part in the free-for-all, which was held 14 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD in the Gym. First to lay hands on the "Pancake" was Peacock, who was soon buried under a pile of fighting humanity. When the whistle ended the two minute scramble and the putty was collected and weighed, Kovacs emerged vic- torious. He was presented with the customary live dollars with which to treat his fellow Fourth-formers at tuck. The Visit of Captain Philpott On January the 27th, the School was honoured by a visit from Captain Philpott, well-known speaker on Inter- national Relations. Captain Philpott discussed not only the war. but the future peace. The forty minutes in which he spoke seemed to vanish so quickly that many boys stayed behind to ask him questions. We hope that Captain Philpott will come down again sometime in the future. Art Exhibit There was recently on display in the Hall a group of paintings, comprising an exhibition organized by the Royal Canadian Academy and sponsored by the National Art Gallery at Ottawa. It had been one of the exhibitions of Canadian art at the New York World's Fair. This col- lection of 62 works, including landscapes and portraits, re- presents well-known artists from all over the Dominion. One very fine portrait, considered by many to be the most masterly work in the collection, was "Amos", painted by Lawren Harris, Jr.. an Old Boy of T.C.S. Recital by Mr. Reginald Stewart The brilliant Canadian pianist and conductor, Mr. Reginald Stewart, gave a recital of piano works in the Hall on December 14th. The large audience enjoyed a memor- i "N:-f ii in S . I ' 'K s : g , I 5 W 2 1 1 uf: ' .,.., , P -1 " ' - ' . v . LX I gn Q 'fax' sf - . .H ' i il ,X I I..aig.6.'-V D '-X 4' igvsfw t 7- .Ex s.

A picturesque company in mediaeval costume carried in the Yule Log, while the Jester struck the note for the evening's festivities. After proclamation of the Spirit of Christmas by heralds in the gallery, the concealed choir rose and sang to organ music a selection of carols. We should not let the occasion pass without a word of thanks to Mrs. Wright, who put on a turkey dinner with all the trimmings that was a platemark in the Schoo1's gastronomical history. . ... . 16 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD CHRISTMAS ENTERTAINMENT After the feasting in the Hall on the night before term ended, the company removed itself to the gym., where a mixed bill of music and drama awaited an audi- ence. This had been arranged by Mr. Humble and Mr. Maier, with Mr. Parr and Mr. Cohu as chief accomplices. The programme included two one-act plays produced by the staff of the Junior School, who seemed to have added Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Tottenham to their numbers for the occasion. For all the dramatic items, valuable assistance was given by Mrs. Humble, Mrs. Maier and Miss Smith, who did an enormous amount of work behind the scenes to make the costumes and make-up just right. The help of these ladies deserved very special thanks. Those who took part will not forget Mrs. Wright either, for refresh- ments after rehearsal and performance saved them from going home in a state of complete collapse. The programme opened with a dramatised joke, handled by Armour and Olds. Then came a vocal trio, The Harmony Boys, under the misguidance of Mr. Cohu. For safety. they put on the programme the assumed names of Lewisovitch max., McBracken max. and Pagelici mi. Costumed as small f?J boys, they used the music of the Gilbert and Sullivan "Three Little Maids from School" to deliver themselves of a set of words, composed under duress by Mr. Parr, which seemed to the audience to have some esoteric local significance. The audience apparently liked this turn, and the singers were able to get off the encore verses carefully prepared for the unexpected call. Walcot and Greer did another two-minute comedy and then came the first of the J.S. plays, a cloak-and-sword affair full of highwaymen, soldiers, disguised adventurers and other satisfying characters. An interlude of singing by the Harmony Boys separated this play from the other JS. dramatic offering, a comedy in three scenes, composed and produced by Mr. Page. It concerned a chemist's dis- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 17 covery of a drug that made things disappear and the dis- appearances enacted provided many laughs, culminating in the appearance of Herr Hitler to lament that unsuspect- ing use of the preparation had made not only all his guns and ammunition vanish, but even General Goering too. Two more brief comedies, with a song by the J.S. Choir, preceded a one-act play, "Refund", which dealt with the problem of a young man returning to his old school to demand his money back on the grounds that he had not learnt anythingithere. This was the most ambitious item on the programme, and it was well received by the audience. "Wireless Cookery", in which Berkinshaw showed what happens when a husband is left alone to follow the cookery lesson over the radio, was funny enough to reduce the audience to the proper state of helplessness for the end of a programme, and the evening closed with the sing- ing of Land of Hope and Glory by the J .S. Choir, followed of course by God Save the King. The stage was erected and all scenic and lighting effects provided by a gang with a mysterious, secret society air, who seemed to have found the formula for making hard work a highly laughable affair. These were:-H. K. Olds, W. G. M. Strong F. H. O. Warner, L. T. Higgins, J. C. W. Hope, R. LeMesurier, C. M. Patch, C. E. Lyall. It will be noted that the Christmas Entertainment de- parted from tradition this year, in that it was not provided by New Boys, but almost entirely by members of the Second Year.

The motion before the house was "It is resolved that in the opinion of this house England should immediate- ly declare war on Russia." The principal speakers were: for the affirmative, Fin- ley and Cayley: negative, Phin and Gray. The aflirrnative pointed out the strategic advantage of the Black Sea and the opportunity to blockade the Baltic. War with Russia was inevitable and to declare war would be a blow to them. The negative pointed out the extreme difficulty of lighting the Russians and that it would heavily detract from man-power on the Western Front. In declaring war on Russia, America would be heavily counted on and this was a somewhat dubious assumption. After several speeches from the floor the motion was defeated by 47 votes to 19. On Friday, the 19th of January, the second debate of the term was held. The motion wasg "That in the opinion of this house, professionalism has ruined sport orn this con- tinent." For the afiirmative were Duncanson and Tate, and for the negative Duggan ii. and Somerville. Duncanson stated that there were two schools of sport: the English, and the American. In England everybody plays some sport but few professionally, and in America a very few become extremely proficient. He went on to say that most crowds attend for the show and also that financial success came before all sportsmanship. Duggan ii. declared that professionals do most for any sport. and also the pros are needed to teach the finer points of any game. Professionalism provides not only enter- tainment but employment. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 21 After Tate and Somerville had spoken the debate was open to the house. Higginbotham, German, Dalton and Keegan spoke from the floor. The motion was defeated by 52 votes to 17. .m,... ..1l -- On Saturday, January 27th., the motion was: "That in the opinion of the house, it is better to be thin than fat." Hope produced a theory, in opening the debate in light vein, that a thin ma.n's main advantage comes in time of war, when he can run for safety faster than a fat man. Higgins, leading for the negative, countered by pro- ducing dictionary dennitions to prove that a thin man means one transparent and easily seen through. Who, he asked, Wanted to have their thoughts read? Kerry supported the resolution by instancing General Goering, like most Germans a fat many no one in his proper mind would want to resemble General Goering, Cawley matched this example by calling attention to the stoutness of Santa Claus, Whose universal popularity roused in the speaker a desire to resemble him in every way. Goebbels was drawn in as an example of a thin man. After several speeches from the floor of the House, a vote resulted in the aflirmative carrying the motion by 31 to 21. On February the 23rd, the motion was, "That in the opinion of this house 85,000 is more useful to a boy of 18 than a college education." For the afiirmative were Lang- muir and Patch, and for the negative Mackenzie and Pear- son. Langmuir traced the lives of two men who had left school at 18, one of whom had gone to college and the other had taken the money. He pointed out that the man who had been to college would be considerably older than the man who had taken the money by the time he had a steady job. 22 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Pearson stated that today men with the specialized training were those that held jobs, and for this it was abso- lutely essential to have a college education. After Patch and Mackenzie had spoken the debate was open to the house. Lyall, Keegan, Armour i., Armour ii. and Gray spoke from the floor. A vote was then taken and the motion was carried by 47 votes to 18. GENERAL KNOYVLEDGE PAPER Again this year a General Knowledge Paper was written on the last day of the Christmas term. The same paper was set again at the beginning of this term, for its most important object is to give practice in finding things out. In the first writing, at sight, the most successful was Moysey, with a score of 162 out of a possible 320. Close behind him came Holton ii. with 161 and Gray with 155. The scores ranged all the way down to 21. When the second efforts were marked, it became evident that a great deal of research in the reference books and other stores of information had been done. LeMesurier led the field with 286 out of 320. Warburton was second with 264 and Lawson third with 262. Readers outside the School may discover that the paper was difficult enough to test even the experts of an "Information, Please" programme by trying over the speci- men questions reprinted below. 1.. a.

Skiing did not begin on a popular scale at T.C.S. until late in the 1920's, when a good number of boys began to come from Montreal. Full use of the splendid natural skiing facilities around Port Hope was delayed, however, first by the move to Woodstock from 1928 to 1930, and then, during a succession of relatively snowless winters, by failure to go far enough back into the hills. The excellent winter of 1933-34 when a School ski-meet was held on the Park Hill was the one exception. Few places in Ontario have better skiing facilities at hand. Port Hope itself is hilly but, from a skiing stand- point, suffers from the handicap of the moderating in- fluence of a large body of open water nearby. Beginning five miles back from the town, however, lie the Durham Hills. rising in places within twelve miles of the lake to a height of 1300 feet. These hills afford many good skiing slopes and trails, and can be counted upon, save in an exceptional winter, to have plenty of snow. Further back still, but yet within forty-five minutes' drive of the School, is Bethany, now recognized as probably the best skiing centre in Ontario east of Fort William, and to where ski trains run from Toronto and Peterborough. The skiing possibilities of the high hills at Bethany have just begun to be developed by the Peterborough Ski Clubg they have already built a ski-tow and a chalet, and a jump is planned, TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 25 Several skiing trips in the School truck or cars have been arranged this term, on Saturdays and Sundays, or on Wednesday afternoons, either to Bethany or the hills north- west of Bewdley, or to the "Sugar Loaf" at Garden Hill. The week-end of February 10 a party of boys spent skiing at Ardfree Farm, north of Garden Hill. Access to these various places is maintained, even in snowiest conditions. by the provincial highway to Peterborough and by county roads that are now kept ploughed. Next year the School hopes to have a skiing lodge of its own, back in the hills, where week-end parties of boys can go and make full use of their opportunities. It is also hoped to develop inter-scholastic competitive skiing in this part of the country. Thus, the days when hockey was the School's only winter sport have passed, and the winter afternoons when the only pastime for hockey "clubs" was that rather in- different game known as "league hockey" are no more. Now basketball, squash and skiing compete with hockey for boys' interest. Inevitably, many more boys are able to participate with enjoyment, and excel, in some sport dur- ing the winter term. The School's "ace" skiers this year are: Birks, German, Rogers, Strong, Svenningson and Thompson. Others, from those only slightly less experienced down to some of the beginners, include: Armour i., Armour ii., Black, Cheyney, Dalton, Draper, Greene, Hart, Higginbotham, Holton, Hope, Huestis, Huycke, Kovacs, Lloyd, Lyall, Somerville, Stokes, Topping, Warburton, Warner. 26 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 1 1 7f-r 5 .1 , 'al J4. COI1tIIbU.t10IlS L' Q TOTALITARIAN WAR I QA large hall in the palace of Schonbrunn, Vienna. Hitler and Stalin are seated in conference at a small table in the centre of the hall.J Hitler: Whate'er the task to which I set my hand, It is accomplished: all things work for me. I am divineg my star shall never set. See how proud Austria humbly bowed her head, And set herself with pleasure 'neath my heel. The Czechs, in arrogant fool-hardiness, Did seek to bar my path, but sought in vain, And ever since have paid just penalty. Lastly the Poles, that mean and stupid race- Oh what a glorious war was there, my friend, For that is how a 'blitzkrieg' should be fought: Smash up their bases. homes and villagesg And as the huddled remnants flee in fear, Mow them in bloody swathes, man, woman, child, To serve the greater glory of the Reich. lf 1 1 V 5 Stalin I much impressedl: 'Tis very truth, the god that I respect Is hard and ruthless. If we must have God, Let him be Moloch, stern, implacable. This western talk of pity makes me laugh. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Hitler: Ah, Stalin, you and I must rule the world! We are predestined for it, we are meng And you shall rule the East, and I the West. But first of all some trifling matters wait. These western powers, who fill me with contempt, Are obstinate, far more so than I thought. This irksome British sea-power hampers me, And leaves me short of many things I need. I must have oil, the chief necessity In modern warfare. Give me oil and I Will sweep these western powers from the earth. This is my plan, friend Staling play me fair, And I will make you lord of half the world. The power of the West lies in their oil, They hold the major sources of supplyg Shall we not wrest it from them by our might? The States at present are beyond our reachg Not so Iraq and Persia, we can there Get oil unlimitedg and what is more, Deprive these powers of their chief supply. My Siegfried line can hold the West at bay, And yet leave mighty armies for the task. These braggarts call us Hunsg we'll let them see What Huns are really like as we advance And our victorious armies sweep the world. Stalin: But what of Italy? Will she allow Our passage through the Balkans? There she stands Upon our flanks, a menace to success. Hitler: That double-crossing windbag leave to meg By bribes or threats I'll keep him quiet enough. He knows which side his bread is buttered on.

But then again some trifling matters wait For me as wellg these misbegotten Finns Have also proved more stubborn than I thought. Unless I overrun their country first, I fear I may have trouble in my own. You must assist me, Hitler, once 'tis done, We will advance together towards the East. Hitler: My hand on it: I'll enter from the West, You from the East, and you shall have your Finns. If trouble comes at home, the remedy Is clear. Arrange a pogromg massacre The Jews.

Stalin and I agree upon a plan, Whereby we three may dominate the worldg When he shall rule the East, and I the West, While to your share there falls the sunny South. The details can be settled later on, But you shall have the empire of your dreams. iThey then discuss the plan, and Mussolini consents to break his neutrality and join in, as he thinks it may be successful. The conference adjournsl.

I need his help To teach a lesson to the rebellious Finns: But after that is done, our hands are free.

SCINTILLATING, SENSATIONAL, STUPENDOUS The stage and thescreen are reaching a crisis in their history! Bankruptcy threatens the actors, the actresses. the producers, the directors, in short everyone from the lowest stage hand to the most glamorous star. It has not been made public yet, but one can read between the linesg one has only to look at Alexander Korda's clothes to see he is economising. The fact is, the Publicity Experts have run out of adjectives. They have used every one until it is hackneyed and commonplace. Time was when the word "stupendous" would bring crowds, now it only raises a blase eyebrow. In vain they have thumbed the Oxford Dictionary, even Webster's has failed them. The question is: what is to be done? Language experts have been summoned from all over the World. H. G. Wells, speaking for the scientific faction, says the problem is in- soluble. On the other hand, Einstein in a long interview with Samuel Goldschmitt said he thought language was an illusion, but that possibly if they found the Fourth Dimension it might help. Hitler, hastily summoned from Berchtesgarten, said the answer to the whole thing was Lebensraiun. The Archbishop of Canterbury suggested a prayer week. All to no avail. Even the composers of "Flat-foot Floogie" could think of no solution. Are We to let this great industry die merely for lack of words? Surely some way can be found to surmount this difficulty. Hollywood has tried to secure'the services of Goebbels, but he declares that to say most films were 32 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD good would be telling the truth, and that, he insists, is against his principles. No, it seems that the age of Publicity is over, for the time being. -J.D.J. THE 1939 TEAM fTune: The Nlarz on the Flying Trapeze, Oh, the old Rugby Team set out with a will With eyes full of Vengeance to do and to kill: They were quite short in weight but longer in skill And led by a still shorter coach. This coach wore a pair of golf knickers With jelly beans always full, He could run, he could pass with the utmost of class And would shout "get on the appu-u-1"! He ran through the boys with the greatest of ease, They went for his neck-could not get to his knees, His movements were graceful, the girls he did please, And he was our Ucoachie boy". Oh, we are the first Twelve so gallant and bold And of us Pee Wee a great team did mould, We all are fine fellows-on that we are sold Though some are inclined to say "Oh"? "The Collitch", St. Andrew's and Ridley We hear showed a lack of respectg We could run, we could pass with the utmost of class But the best of our players got wrecked. Oh- We ran through the Seconds with the greatest of ease But when they had the ball they gave it to Cheese: TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 33 He hit the line hard and was across in a breeze And that is the end of our song. Oh, our season is gone and our points are but one We lost several games but from THEM did not run, We took knocks aplenty but still had our fun And would gladly do it again. s1i THE GEN TLEMAN FARMER It was strange that Aunt Agatha should leave me any- thing in her will, stranger still that she should leave me a farm. She ought to have known that I hate them. How- ever, just to please the deceased, I resolved to become a gentleman farmer. Well, here I stood, bag and baggage ireally just bagl, by the gate of my new home, debating whether it would be worth while rolling up my trousers to prevent them from being covered with burrs as I beat my way through the dense jungle that was the path to the house. The broken windows, the cracked, mossy walls and the near-absence of a roof did not deter me from entering, but when I saw a snake come out of the verandah, where some boards should have been, I began to feel slightly hesitant. The solid blanket of cobwebs and dirt across the door, however, finally made me decide to investigate the barn first. This was a small, flimsy-looking structure, evidently a product of amateur building. But to get there I had to pass through the muddy barnyard, with all its rat-infested hencoops and battered debris. The odour, as pleasant as a triple dose of castor oil, nauseated me, but I finally staggered into the barn, only to find the smell worse in there. An ominous, crack- ing sound as I leaned against a doorpost to survey the re- mains of a rusty plough made me decide quickly to stand without much-needed support. A good percentage of the 34 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD roof was intermingled with the rest of the garbage scatter- ed over the sun-patched floor, and the general effect was strikingly similar to that of a rather backward eity's dump. I did not stay to notice any more, but I did break the fragments of the gate over my knee as I took a last look at the door and two windows of what remained of the one- storied farmhouse, with the sick-looking barn roof behind it. It was on the back of my rented jackass, riding away, that I decided to join the French Foreign Legion, to for- get this ordeal. When the recruiting officer asked my occupation, I would say "gentleman farmer", just to please the deceased. -L.T.H. THREE LITTLE BOYS FROM SCHOOL fPub1i:bed by royal C0771mdI1d' of E.

The School went down to a 7-5 defeat before the Kappa Alpha fraternity team, in a high-scoring encounter. In the iirst two periods Kappa Alpha had a decided edge on the play, mainly because of individual brilliance. All of their goals were scored in the first and second periods. Woods, Boeckh and Cassells each got two points and McCarthy was the other marksman. Duggan scored Trinity's only goal. The third period, however, was decidedly the School's. The team put in four goals while Kappa Alpha were held scoreless. Fleming, Spence, Finley and Caldwell each beat Jarvis. SCHOOL vs. THE GROVE At Port Hope, January 27th. Lakelield played fast hockey as a team when they visit- ed Port Hope, but the School players had not yet discover- ed the way to make the most of their abilities or to turn their training to advantage. The difference between the teams showed in a ten-goal margin for the Grove. In the first period, Duggan ii. opened the scoring, but the School did not find the net again. Lakefield, ably led by Frewer, put the puck past Duggan i. five times. 38 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The second period was more even and provided the best hockey of the afternoon. Duggan ii, on a pass from Finley, and Caldwell scored for the School, St. Remy and Frewer for Lakefield. In the last period, the School team apparently tried to make energy a substitute for skill, but Without much suc- cess. Two goals were added to the T.C.S. score, Finley from Fleming and Duggan ii. from Cayley, but Lakefield scored eight times, Langmuir, St. Remy and Roberts each getting two, Frewer and Potts one each. Frewer played a very good game for the Grove. Final score: T.C.S. 5, The Grove 15. SCHOOL vs. ZETA PSI At Port Hope, February 3rd. T.C.S. played Zeta Psi Fraternity and beat them by a score of 7-2. The School showed better teamwork and passing than did the Zetes. Duggan ii. and Somerville each beat Lindsay, in the Zeta Psi nets, three times. Mc- Avity scored the remaining goal for T.C.S. Ross and O'Grady scored for Zeta Psi. Duggan ii., Somerville, McAvity played an excellent game for the School, O'Grady and Ross were good for Zeta Psi. SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. At Port Hope, February 10th. This game was very even and hard-fought. It would have been even more so if the School had not been handi- capped by the illness of McAvity and Finley. Neverthe- less a very good fight was put up against a heavier team. The first period witnessed very fast and open playing by both sides. Martin was outstanding for S.A.C. and Duggan ii. played aggressively for the School. About mid- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 39 way through the period Gear put S.A.C. into the lead, after combining with Hampson on a neat passing effort. The second period was only ive minutes old when Cayley evened the score on a pass from Duggan ii. From there on, however, the superior weight and the marvellous defence of Martin and Allespach gave S.A.C. an edge in the play. Martin put the visitors again into the lead after a beautiful solo dash. He stick-handled through the whole School team and then gave Erenhous no chance with a bullet-like shot. Butler made it 3-1 for S.A.C. when he combined with Hampson on a Huke goal. The puck hit the back boards and bounced high in the air in front of the School goal where Butler slapped it in. Ir1 the third period the School pressed very hard throughout, aided by two S.A.C. penalties, but Gear put S.A.C. further into the lead when he broke away while they were short-handed and all five School men were in the enemy zone. The rest of the game was very hard- fought but the School was unable to capitalize on several good chances. McLelland ii. in goal, Martin, and Gear starred for S.A.C. while Erenhous, and Duggan were outstanding for the School. The final score: S.A.C. 4, T.C.S. 1. SCHOOL vs. ST. ANDREWS GOLLEGE At Aurora, February 21st. The School made a much better showing in their second game of the season against St. Andrew's. The play was fast and the teamwork good, in spite of the soft, sticky ice. Duggan ii. opened the scoring for T.C.S. on a splendid combination play with Cayley and Finley. S.A.C. tested Erenhous a good many times before Gear managed to even the score. Then a rather flukey goal resulted from a face- 40 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD off near the net, putting St. Andrew's in the lead at the end of the first period. In the last two periods both teams were slowed down a little by the soft ice. Soon after the opening of the second period, Duggan poked the puck past Bryan, but the referee disallowed the goal. However, Duggan succeeded in levelling the score immediately afterwards on a solo effort. In the last period both teams played open hockey, as fast as the condition of the ice permitted. Erenhous had a good deal to do, and made some good saves. Duggan scored again for the School about half way through the period, but Shields managed to score the equalizing goal for S.A.C. The deadlock continued until the end of the period, when overtime was agreed. In the overtime, both teams continued to give all they had, in spite of their weariness. T.C.S. missed an oppor- tunity to score while Allespach was in the penalty box and the game ended with the score tied at three all. Duggan ii. played a fine game, scoring all the T.C.S. goalsg Finley had credit for two assists and Cayley for one. Erenhous also deserved special mention. For S.A.C. Mar- tin and Gear were most noteworthy. SCHOOL vs. LAKEFIELD At Lakefield, February 24th. On February 24th, the First Hockey Team set out for Lakeficld. the last defeat at the hands of the Grove still ringing in its ears. From the first whistle the play was wide open, both sides continually making dangerous break-aways, and every player going full out. In the first period, on a scramble around the goal, T.C.S. claimed a goal which was not allowed. However a few minutes later, Finley scored on a passing play from Duggan ii. and Cayley. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 41 Shortly after, Somerville scored on a beautiful shot from a seemingly impossible angle on a pass from McAvity. Hardly had the cheers died down, when Finley again banged it in on a long shot. Lakefield stormed back, and Harris netted their Hrst goal to end the period, 3-1 for T.C.S. Soon after the start of the second period, the Grove again flew around our goal, with Erenhous doing acrobatic contorsions between the posts, eventually tripping himself and sprawling on the ice. St. Remy of Lakefield flicked the puck over his prostrate body for another goal. Cayley and Duggan again flashed a passing play up the ice, and Finley got the puck to score his third goal, ending the period. With the score 4-2 against them, Lakefield came on the ice to swarm around the unfortunate Erenhous, who gave an excellent performance throughout the game. Lakefleld scored when Langmuir shot it in from close range. With the score 4-3 and ten minutes to go, Lakefield put up a desperate effort, with School stubbornly fighting to retain that one goal lead. Only the most consistent back-checking of the forwards, close defence work, and ex- pert goal-tending kept the score where it was, and the bell rang to end one of the most hectic periods of the season, with School defeating Lakeneld 4-3. - 65333 Q3 I 42 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD BASKETBALL SCHOOL vs. OLD BOYS At Port Hope, January 27th. This Iirst game was very even and closely-fought. At the end of the regulation time the score was 38-36 in the School's favour but as the score was announced to be 38- 38, overtime was played, during which the Old Boys scored 7 to the School's 2. The first half ended with the score 20-19 in the School's favour. Svenningson with ten points for the School and Gripton with twelve for the Old Boys played very well. In the second half Svenningson 18 pointsl and Robarts were effective for the School, while Gripton and Curtis shone for the Old Boys. At the end of the hour the score was 38-36 for the School but because of the above-mention- ed unfortunate incident the final score was: Old Boys: 43: T.C.S. 40. Svenningson, Robarts and Olds were outstanding for the School, while Gripton and Curtis were the mainstays of the Old Boys' team. SCHOOL vs. UPPER CANADA COLLEGE At Toronto, February 3rd. This was a fast game which resulted in a clear victory for U.C.C. All through the game they had a slight edge on play and their shots were very accurate. The School put up a fine fight but seemed to have very bad luck, sometimes missing the basket by inches. The final score was 25-6. Svenningson and Robarts were out- standing for the School. SCHOOL vs. ILNLC. At Port Hope, February 7th, This game was even throughout the first half but the TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 43 superior staying-power of the heavier R.M.C. team showed up in the second half. The first half ended with the score 14-8 in the School's favour, Robarts having scored eight points for the School and Pratten six for the visitors. R.M.C. determined to catch up in the second half, the net result of their efforts gave them twelve points to the School's three. Svenningson, Robarts, and Holton were outstanding for the School while Pratten, Powers, and Bennett starred for the visitors. The final score was: R.M.C. 20, T.C.S. 17. .171-.i SCHOOL vs. S.A.C. At Port Hope, February 10th. St. Andrew's was a much more experienced team but nevertheless the School put up a better fight than is in- dicated by the score. The first half ended with the score S.A.C. 27, T.C.S. 10. From the very start the visitors showed their immense superiority, Gourlay in particular being most eiective. Svenningson played well for the School but the team was unable to equal the boys from Aurora. The second half was a repetition of the first, S.A.C. scoring 31 points to the School's 6. Gourlay was outstanding for S.A.C., scoring 41 points in all. Grass also was effective for the visitors, while Svenningson and Robarts starred for the School. The final score was: S.A.C. 58, T.C.S. 16. SCHOOL vs. PORT HOPE HIGH SCHOOL At Port Hope, February 21st. This game was very even but the advantage went to the School, who were more experienced. The first half was very evenly contested although the 44 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD School held a slight superiority. The half ended with the score, T.C.S. 27, P.H.H.S. 13. The second half was still more hard-fought but al- though the team from town played very hard the School still held the lead by the score of 13-10. , Brown, with eight points, and Dayman were the best for the High School while Robarts, Stokes, Holton, and Olds starred in the School's well-earned first victory. The final score was: T.C.S. 30, Port Hope H. S. 23. MAGEE CUP Huestis won the Magee Cup this year, with a score of 15 out of a possible 30.

TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 45 SOCCER This year soccer aroused very keen interest in the School. The diiferent teams were made up of the advisee lists of the various masters. Mr. Dixon's squad of "Butchers" and Mr. Humble's "Humble Bees" reached the playoffs. These two teams proved to be very evenly matched. What Mr. Humb1e's group lacked in age, weight and size, they made up in determination and skill. Three games were played before the winner could be announced, and the first two games were scoreless ties with half an hour over- time in each. In the last game both Fleming and Robarts beat Morton in the goal for the "Humble Bees". For the winning team McAvity, Fleming and Birks showed the most knowledge of the game and Duggan i. was very good in goal. Pochon, Lawson and Mr. Humble played best for the "Bees", Cups, presented by Mr. Duggan, were awarded to the players. The teams : "Butchers"-Duggan i., Duggan ii., McAvity, Pearson, Somer- ville, Robarts, Peacock, Moore, Birks, Fleming. "Humble Bees"-Morton, Lawson, Pochon, Gibbons, Patterson ii., W'a1cot, Hope, Caldwell, Topping, Macdonald. .-1.. Salvete Name Parent or Guardian Address Hayes, B. P. ................... ...B. B.

However, if We come to examine this more carefully we find that this so called news is largely a list in story form, of all the un- usual or unexpected events that are taking place the world over. To a certain degree this is true of the School Record. When we came to gather material for this number We found same somewhat scarce. Much has happened and is happening but as mentioned above it is for the most part neither the unusual nor the unexpected. Perhaps now that we come to think of it there is something unusual going on and that is the considerable interest in chemistry. An interest in chemistry by some boys is quite to be expected but the unusual part is that so many are fascinated and that at the time of writing there have been no serious ex- plosions. The writer is gripping his desk firmly while this is being written. The chemists are using the passage- way to the dark room for their experiments and so far the feud between dark-room workers and chemistry set people has not caused any major injuries. Long may this state continue. SCHOOL OFFICIALS Captain of Hockey-J. Symons. Captain of Second Hockey Team-P. Layne. Curator of the Library-P. Wills. Assistant-J. Barnett. Lights Boy-P. Layne.

Ll TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 41' HOCKEY The weatherman has been very kind this winter in providing sufficiently cold weather to have ice almost every day since the beginning of the term. Enthusiasm for hockey has been excellent and ma.ny of the players have made great strides in improving their general skill. The first team have been greatly handicapped by loss of some of their best players at the most critical times by the old pest "co1ds". However they have given a good account of themselves on each occasion and even when opposed by much stronger teams they kept battling to the last minute. Games played to-date: J. S. ss. U. C. C. At Toronto, January 27th. An excellent team and the Maple Leaf Gardens were too much for the team and the School lost 6-0. The squad's first game and they showed their lack of experience. J. S. vs. LAKEFIELD At Port Hope, January 31st. This was a very close and exciting match. The visitors scored the winning goal near the end of the third period. This was not at first awarded as the puck went through the twine and was allowed only after the rent had been discovered after the game. J. s. vs. RIDLEY At Toronto, February 10th. Ridley were the victors in this tilt by the score of 13-3. Alibis are always in poor taste but the absence of Stewart and Crum weakened the team to a great extent. The game was not as one-sided as the score might indicate. .-1-.l. J. S. vs. LAKEFIELD At Lakeiield, February 27th. - Once again the team was on the short end of the score to the tune of 9-1. The lads battled every inch of the way 48 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD but Lakefield were apparently just a bit too good although the School had very bad luck on numerous occasions when right in on their opponent's goal. .i..f..- The following have represented the First Team in School games-Symons, Keyes, Britton, Murray, Howard, Heaton, Stewart. Hope, Higginbotham, Perry, Gibson, Crum, Dignam. The First Team defeated a local Boy Scouts' team by a score of 3-2. In this match the Second Team also came on for several short periods. Practice matches have been held with the Fifth and Sixth teams. The Fifth S. S. team was able to win but the Sixth team was held to two tie games and only after much practice were they able to eke out a victory in the last game played. Second Team The Second Team have been rather more fortunate than the First Team up to the present. Two victories are to their credit. The first was on February 7th., when they defeated Mr. Cohu's carolling choristers by a score of 3-0. Their second was against Lakefield on February 19th, by a score of 5-3. In this game several boys played who have since been promoted Ctemporarily at leastb to the first squad. Brawn and determination seem to be the second team's chief characteristics and it is apparently a good combination. The following have played for the Second Team- Layne, Thompson i., Barnett, Briden, Haas, Sim, Perry, Vivian, Currie, Wills, O'Grady, Gibson. Skiing Quite a number of boys in the Junior School have shown an interest in skiing and largely through the efforts TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 49 of Mr. Page have been able to get into the country for a few hours to enjoy some of the quite good hills nearby. Trips to Toronto As mentioned elsewhere the hockey team had two visits to Toronto. On January 27th.. the team was enter- tained at lunch by U.C.C. after which some of the boys saw two Junior O.H.A. games at the Maple Leaf Gardens. On their second visit to the big city they had two special treats. As guests of the University the boys saw the Inter- collegiate hockey match between Varsity and McGill. Later the team was entertained at dinner by Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Symons. Despite the loss of the game it was a most en- joyable trip and we are very grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Symons for their kind hospitality to us all. Library A group of books for the Library, to be known as the Fred Martin Memorial collection, has been given us by Mrs. Lawrence Baldwin. Mrs. Baldwin has always taken a keen interest in the Library and once again we want to thank her for her generosity. A number of the new books are already on the shelves and more are to come. Chronicle We greatly miss the cheerful countenances of Mr. and Mrs. Tottenham, who are now in the Senior School. It was a real pleasure to have Mr. and Mrs. Boulden pay us a visit. We wish they could come more often. Mr. Boulden was Housemaster of the Junior School from 1924 to 1932. A distinction day honour was awarded to Forbes of Form I, and Keyes of Form III, on February 29th. 50 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The Junior School have been to the town movie theatre on two occasions this term. Once to see a French film en- titled Ballerina and again to see one of the Judge Hardy series. On Sunday evening, February 25th they joined with the Senior School to see in Hall some excellent sound pic- tures of the Royal Tour. Although this is not the usual place to say so, we would like to congratulate the choir on their consistently good work. Webster had the misfortune to fracture his leg while skiing during the Christmas holidays and is still con- valescing in Montreal. 716 .f 1 gf . ' 9 7 '15-fu' L'..,gZi"l::1!

Once again we see a growing number of Old Boys put on uniform and begin training for this second struggle in a lifetime with the foes of peaceful Christian life. Already nearly a hundred Old Boys are known to be in some branch of the Active Service, and many more have oiiered their services. The School is indeed proud to see how quickly and willingly they have responded to the cause, though we all profoundly regret the necessity for another war and all that it means. In the School this year are a number of boys who have been at many of the best-known English schools, and it has been a pleasure to see how keenly and completely they have adapted themselves to such a different environ- ment. In our total enrolment of 155 there are boys from ten different countries, six provinces of Canada are repre- sented as well as the N. W. Territories. I think it must have been very seldom that such a fine lot of lads were gathered together in a boarding school. Last year was noteworthy for the memorable visit of Their Majestiesg our Cadet Corps helped to line the route in Toronto and received much well-merited commendation for their appearance and conduct. The Inspection was taken by Air Marshal W. A. Bishop, V.C., and it was probably the best turnout of its kind the School has had. During the year we had six lectures on aeronautics by officers from Trenton and one R.A.F. visiting officer told us of the latest Air Force developments, and 'showed us slides of the newest machines. 54 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD . In games we were less successful than usual in the number of victories to our credit, but our boys were worthy representatives of the School. In hockey we won six, lost four and tied one gameg in basketball we won nine and lost three: in cricket we lost to U.C.C. and Ridley in close matches but won from S.A.C. in the most thrilling and fastest scoring second innings ever seen on a T.C.S. field, or probably on any other school field in Canada. You may remember that S.A.C. batted first and made 90. We felt we could do better than that, but one of those slow col- lapses took place and we were all out for 48. The game was over for most of the spectators, but it was early in the afternoon and S.A.C. went in to bat again, making 89 all out. An hour and a quarter remained and 132 runs were needed to win. Seagram and Cayley started off well but soon had hard luckg Landry and Johnson found them- selves together and hitting everything that came their way. Spectators began to take notice again, and cheering broke outg time was flying but runs were coming and we were now within striking distanceg soon Somerville hit the winning run with ten minutes and four wickets to spare. What a cheer went up from the assembled crowd! A new page had been written in the annals of T.C.S. cricket and it was a red-letter one. Landry and Johnson between them made 97 runs and the required 132 were scored for six wickets in just over an hour. It was a scoring record for any Canadian schoolboy team and Will probably stand for many years. Cricket had been proved one of the most exciting of games--certainly when played like that! This autumn we had a young and light rugby team and though they made a plucky struggle they could not win any school games. The S.A.C. team was one of the heaviest and best balanced teams I ever remember in the Little Big Four and they well deserved their championship after a long run of lean years. So far, this winter has been one of the best with ice and snow for hockey and skiing.

In the summer it is planned to run a camp for under-privileged lads from the cities. There is some excellent skiing country near the School and we have been making much use of it this winter. Last June Mr. W. H. Morse retired from the staff of the Jtmior School, having served most faithfully for twenty-two years. We miss him and Mrs. Morse very much but hope to see more of them when the weather gets better. In the spring I was invited to Winnipeg to speak at the revival of the O.B.A. in that city. Judge Dennistotui very kindly entertained the Old Boys at dinner at the Fort Garry hotel, and the Association was resuscitated under very happy auspices. The membership of the O.B.A. keeps up to its last year's figure but we should like to see it grow still more. first because it reilects an active interest in the affairs of the School, and second because the income from fees is very necessary if the present organization is to become self-supporting and perhaps contribute to certain school activities. For three years now the School has been carry- ing the large share of the expense, amounting to some six or seven hundred dollars a year. Schools such as this in the United States, much more wealthy than T.C.S. is ever likely to be, can count on an annual income from their Old Boys of five or six thousand dollars, they never think of contributing to the expense of the Old Boys' organizations. but the Old Boys make numerous contributions to the work of the school. That is a star to which we might hitch our wagon, and the first step is to increase the member- ship of the O.B.A. to a thousand Old Boys. You have all heard of the preparations being made for the celebration of our 75th Anniversary: the executive of the O.B.A. decided to set aside June lst for this purpose 56 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD and we are hoping to have from two to three hundred Old Boys at Port Hope on that day. May it be a fine one, and may we give the School on the Hill a memorable start on its next seventy-five years lap. I look forward to seeing you on June lst. Yours sincerely, PHILIP KETCHUM. OLD BOYS ON ACTIVE SERVICE If Old Boys on active service were members of the O. B.A. at time of enlistment they are entitled to honorary membership in the Association tincluding the Recordl for the duration of their service. Such Old Boys should write to the Secretary of the O.B.A. at Port Hope stating their military address. HAVE YOU OLD PHOTOS OR RELICS OF YOUR SCHOOL DAYS? The 75th Anniversary Committee would like to borrow photos and relics of the old days, to have on hand at Port Hope on June lst to help recreate the atmosphere of the past. Pictures of famous masters, cartoons or drawings, football relics, dormitory or class lists, or anything that would help to costume the first cricket team in the style of 1865 for their ceremonial arrival from the station on June lst-all these would be of great help to the Committee. Please communicate with the Secretary of the 75th Anni- versary Committee, Eric W. Morse, at Port Hope. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 57 ADDRESSES OF OLD MASTERS At a recent meeting of the Anniversary Committee it was decided that this would be a iitting year, especially after the recent publication of a complete list of Old Boys. to endeavour to ascertain the whereabouts of as many as possible of previous masters of the School. Old Boys are requested to advise the Secretary of the Association, at Port Hope, if they should know of the addresses of any previous masters. A complete list of at least the names may possibly be published in the next Record.

Dean of His Majesty's judges in Canada, Chief Justice Martin has occupied a distinguished position on the bench in Canada for 42 years, being made a puisne judge of the Supreme Court of British Columbia in 1898. He was the youngest man to be named to any superior court in Can- ada at any time. Chief Justice Martin has officiated in many important investigations and commissions. He represented the Min- ister of Justice on Vancouver Island in 1896. He was con- cerned with the Treaty on the Canadian-Alaskan boundary in 1900. He was appointed judge in admiralty for British Columbia in 1902. He is the author of much tuneful poetry and literary works of an historical nature. But while he has occupied his unusually keen mind with cultural pursuits, his devotion to his judicial duties is shown in the fact that he has not missed a necessary day of court in the past 28 years. British Columbia is proud to have been the scene of such an exceptionally capable. highminded and devoted judicial career. There is not one section of the province but will regret his decision to leave the bench he has so usefully adorned. Chief Justice Archer Martin, still young in mind and keen in interest, has been a judicial landmark in this prov- ince and one in which every British Columbian can take pride.

TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 67 HAMILTON RIDLEY MOCKRIDGE Hamilton Ridley Mockridge entered the School in 1898, a retiring sort of youngster with an excellent sense of humour and a very keen interest in music. Like his father and his three brothers he was destined for the Ministry, and even at school his vocation was abundantly clear. He seemed to stand out from his school-fellows as a being somewhat apart, and one never heard from his lips the casual, careless talk which is so prevalent among boys of that age. He had a most distinguished career at the School, and in his final year he was a Prefect, won the coveted Bronze Medal, took the Sixth Form prizes in Divinity, Classics, and French, and played on the eleven. Leaving the School in 1902, he completed his education at Leland Stanford University, California, and Trinity University, Toronto. He was ordained deacon in 1907 at St. Thomas' Church, Toronto, where he was curate for several years, and after serving at the Church of the Epiphany, Louis- ville, Ky., and St. Peter's Church, Cobourg, he was called to found and take charge of the Mission of All Hallows', Toronto in 1913. This was to prove the main work of his life, and here his many talents were brought into full play. He organized the parish, built the church, and for twenty- four years he gave of his best to his people, winning their whole-hearted loyalty and devotion. He was a parish priest of singular ability, a clear and effective teacher, while his musicianship made his church a place of real and beautiful worship. His heart and his life were wrapped up in his parish, but when Archbishop Owen in 1937 asked him to take charge of St. Mary Magdalene's, Toronto, he felt it was his duty to accept this new responsibility. Unfortun- ately illness intervened, and although he was able to spend a few months in the direction of his new work, it was under the handicap of ill-health, which culminated in' his death last December. 68 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD To those of us who knew him, and who had known him since his school-days, it was a life of singular beauty and consecration. He never thought of himself, but only of the Church, and the people whom he was called to serve. It was a quiet, unobtrusive life, for he scorned publicity, but it was the compelling life of one who follow- ed very closely in the footsteps of his Master. -C.J.S.S. Memorial to Rev. H. R. Mockridge There are many who valued the friendship of Hamilton Ridley Mockridge, or who admired him for his devotion to the duties of his sacred calling, or who recognized the saintliness of his life, and we believe that they will be glad of an opportunity to share in the cost of a memorial to him. It is proposed to place this memorial in All Hallows' Church, the church which he built and where he spent twenty-four of the thirty-three years of his ministry. The form of the memorial will depend on the amount we receive, but if sufficient funds are received, We feel that to furnish the choir in All Hallows' would be an appropriate commemoration of the life and work of this faithful priest, who was also an accomplished musician and who made the choir his special charge. It will also be something which he himself wished to do, but was never able. All Hallows' is a working class parish, and the church was erected when building costs were at their highest, and the loss of funds in a bank failure and the years of depression and the heavy mortgage pay- ments made it impossible for him to proceed with the furnishing of the church as he wished. The choir is still furnished with the old school benches which were placed there when the church was opened in 1923. We are confident that many will be glad to have a share in this memorial, which will not only be a reminder of the life of Hamilton Ridley Mockridge but also a means TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 69 of assisting to continue his work. If any money should remain after paying for the furnishing of the choir and providing a suitable tablet, it will be applied to the reduc- tion of the mortgage - over 512,000 - on All Hallows' Church. Contributions should be sent to Rev. C. J. S. Stuart. 381 Huron Street, Toronto. iSignedJ Gerald Larkin, Mabel Cartwright, C. J. S. Stuart, H. T. Collier. ,. ARCHBISHOP ROPER The late Archbishop Roper was a frequent visitor to the School in its early days at Port Hope, and through his scholarly interest he contributed much to its welfore. Many times he preached the Speech Day Sermon and his inspiring and forceful words made a deep impression on all who heard him. When he was on the staff of Trinity College he used to come to the School to preside at the Matriculation examinations, often spending ten days or two weeks at the Lodge. On New Year's day he told the Headmaster that he was looking forward to renewing his visits to the School and we had hoped to be able to welcome him often to Port Hope. We share with all who knew him a very real sense of deep loss at his passing. .,1 COLONEL KENNETH CAMERON, C.M.G., V.D., B.A., M.D., C.M. It was with great regret that we learned of the death of Col. Cameron, on Christmas Day, 1939. Col. Cameron was the eldest of three brothers who attended 'T.C.S.g he was a Life Member of the Old Boys' Association. 70 TRINITY COLLEXIE SCHOOL RECORD After leaving the School, he took his M.D. and C.M. at McGill, and for many years was identified with the Mont- real General Hospital. Colonel Cameron joined No. 1 Canadian General Hos- pital and went overseas with them in October, 1914. His military service had already raised him to the rank of Lieut.-Colonelg in 1916 he was made Colonel, and O.C. of the No. 2 Canadian General Hospital at Treport. Colonel Cameron was twice mentioned in dispatches, and in 1918 was made Commander of St. Michael and St. George. He was O.C. of St. Anne's Military Hospital for two years following the war. Colonel Cameron followed a family tradition of mili- tary service, many of his ancestors having had distin- guished records in the service of the British Army. His grandfather, Lieut.-Colonel Duncan Cameron, C.B., fought at the Battle of Waterloo. He came to Canada, and settled on the present site of St. Andrew's Golf Club, just outside of Toronto. The present Club House, a substantial stone structure, was built by him as his residence, and unsuccess- fully attacked by the Mackenzie rebels in 1837. Dr. Cameron was a brilliant surgeon, a member of the Canadian Medical Association, a past-president of the Mon- treal Medico-Chirurgical Society, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and honorary member of the United States Association of Military Surgeons. Our sincerest sympathy is extended to Col. Cameron's brother. Hugh Cameron V82-'85l, of Toronto. WVILLIAM ROBERT HOUSTON It was a deep shock for us when we learned of the sudden passing of Mr. William Robert Houston on January 21st of this year. Mr. Houston entered the School just sixty years ago and from the first day he showed himself to be a lad of TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 71 strong character and much ability. He began his business career in the Canadian Bank of Commerce, St. Catharines. Ontario, and later served on the staff of the Dominion Bank. He then spent some time with the brokerage firm of Ryert and Company, Montreal, and upon his return to Toronto became Manager of the old Toronto World news- paper for two years. He published the Annual Financial Review in 1901, and in 1902 he founded Houston's Standard Publications, in 1907 he printed the Bank Directory. He was Secretary of the Toronto Stock Exchange for fourteen years, retiring in 1928. Mr. Houston was a pioneer in the cultivation of culinary herbs in Canada. He founded the Olitory at "Sfonehurst", Shanty Bay, Ontario, and was the author of "A Small Herbal", a booklet full of interesting quota- tions. Mr. Houston was a member of the Roman Catholic Church, and belonged to the Toronto Club. He was a Life Member of the Old Boys' Association. In the summer of 1938, Mr. Houston paid a visit to the School and looked over the buildings, so changed since his day. Before leaving he told the Headmaster that he would like to bind the Old Boys' Directory, then being pub- lished as supplements to the Record, in booklet form. When the lists were complete, Mr. Houston undertook this work, and gave it the painstaking care which love of his old School and his schoolmates inspired. The work was nearly ready for the printers when he died, and his family kindly finished it for the Old Boys' As- sociation. This Directory now serves as a memorial to Mr. Houston and the affection he bore his School through sixty years of his life. ...l 72 TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD WITH APOLOGIES TO "LOOSE" CARROLL, OR "WHO THREW THE LOOKING-GLASS AT ALICE"? The sea was wet as wet could be, The day was fine as day, Yet shipping wasn't safe because Of the presence of Graf Spee, For she, you know, was short of food, Hence, her anxiety. The "Walrus" and the "Carpenter" Were looking out for prey, In the shape of German shipping Sneaking home by night or day, And all this happened to occur Off the coast of Uruguay. In the very early morning Of a most eventful day, They spotted in the distance The outline of the "Spee", So they signalled to the "Exeter" To come and join the fray. The skipper of the Hunnish craft Was suffering deprivations. Those "bloody" prisoners aboard Were using up his "rations", So was it any wonder that The Spee was losing patience?

But the "Walrus" and the "Carpenter" Dodged here and there all day Amid the smoke screen, skilfully, Laid all about the "Spee", And managed thus to spoil her fire And force her from the fray. And so it came about that night The "Graf" was forced to port To lick her wounds and make repairs The little cruisers wrought, Yet the "Walrus" and the "Carpenter", They stood outside,-and thought That they might bluff the old "Graf Spee With false "annunciation" Of Battle Cruisers coming fast From every known direction, H PERFECT TASTE PARTNERS i Try "Ritz" with Tomato Juicee-'it's a real taste thrill!

"Let's watch a bit" the cruisers said, Do you think that we have won"?

To an ignominious end. "We weep for you", the Cruisers cried, "We deeply sympathize", With sobs and tears they waited round With sadness in their eyes, To see this pocket-battleship, Burning fiercely as she dies. "O German ships" the "Walrus" cried, "Come out and try a run". "Shall we be trotting home again"'? But answer came there none, And this was scarcely odd because, They'd scuttled every one. S. R.

Messages of Greeting +o the School on the Occasion of Its Sevenly-fifth Birthday: It gives me great pleasure to send greetings to my old School on its 75th anniversary. This anniversary falling as it does when the British Empire and the French Republic have again been forced to take up arms for the cause of Democracy and Civiliza- tion, cannot fail to remind us that Democracy, our most cherished heritage, and Civilization itself both owe their foundation to the introduction of Seats of Study. Our present educational institutions have the enormous responsibility of ensuring that the future citizens of this country develop the proper spirit of discipline. Self discipline is the corner stone of True Democracy. For the past seventy-five years Trinity College School has success- fully played its part in the education of our past and pre- sent citizens. On this occasion I extend my heartfelt wishes to the School and may it continue to carry on its inspiring role with ever increasing success. Percy W. Nelles, C07-'08J Rear-Admiral, R.C.N., Chief of Staff, Royal Canadian Navy. fl' if if if if As the oldest living pupil of Trinity College School I send my greetings on the 75th. Anniversary. Seventy-five years seems a long time to you all, since my college days. I celebrate my 92nd birthday the 9th of June, a double anniversary celebration for me this month. Owing to my advanced years, my presence among you all will be im- possible, but my thoughts and my heart are with you. -Louis K. Jones V65-'67b L. K. lone: is No. 2l on the School Register and is now our senior living Old Boy. 1 W l 1? 1 It is a great pleasure for me, on behalf of the Govern- ing Body of the School, to greet thc Old Boys on this auspicious occasion. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 3 The record of the School during its long career of seventy-live years is surely an enviable one. Through its halls and classrooms have trod many of the Empire's most distinguished sons. Their names are known to all and need no repetition here. Since the first meeting of the original Governing Body of the School which was held on December 28, 1866, it has always been the pleasure and duty of the members of the Governing Body to assist the Headmaster in those innum- erable problems which confront him from day to day. In the tender years of the School's infancy the problems to be met were not serious, as reference to the minutes of those earlier meetings assures us. With the passing of the years, however, the problems of necessity have multi- plied, but in spite of difficulties encountered they have been met cheerfully and overcome. May we hope that the coming years will bring to the old School much success in its work of moulding the youth of the Empire who come to its doors. In closing, I should like on behalf of the Governing Body to express to all those friends and Old Boys of the School who have contributed so generously when called upon to do so our deep appreciation, and to express the hope that if at any time in the future it may be necessary again to call upon them they will respond as wholeheart- edly as they have in the past. -J. W. Langmuir CO6-'O7b. Secretary of the Governing Body, G if Q S 1 The Headmaster asks me to send a word of greeting to the School on its 75th Anniversary. He tells me I am now the senior member of the Board of Governors. It may be so for I have been a Governor so long that "the memory of man runneth not to the contrary." My family connection with the School goes back to the earliest days. My uncles, sons, and unnumbered cousins 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD and nephews are old School boys. Dennistouns, Fortyes, Hamiltons, Smiths, Kirkpatricks, Haultains and Russels, all my own kin have passed through T.C.S. In England the old school belongs to the family. It may be Eton, Harrow, Winchester or some other great school. In Can- ada we can now count three generations at Trinity College School, perhaps four. My wish for the School is that it will continue to be the school of our descendants. There is no better recommendation for a young man going out into life than to say, "I am a T.C.S. boy". -R. M. Dennistoun Elected to the Governing Body in 1902. 1 1 if if i Heartiest congratulations to the Old School on attain- ing her seventy-fifth birthday. She and I are the same age: but she is still young. May her splendid record of service to our boys continue throughout all the quarters of the centuries to come. M. A. Mackenzie C82-'84l. Became a member of the Governing Body in 1895. as as as as ar My warmest greetings and congratulations to the School on its seventy-Hfth anniversary. I look back with gratitude and affection to T.C.S. for five happy years of school life from 1881 to 1886 and I look forward to the continued success and prosperity of the School on the Hill. D'Arcy Martin, K.C. C81-'86J. Elected to the Governing Body in 1902. Q l 1 1' Q This year marks the 75th. anniversary of the School. Anniversary years, so it seems, are those when one takes stock of what has gone beforeg and this year it is diflicult not to direct one's attention to the things that are behind us and the memories of this pastoral Port Hope country- side that many people think is the loveliest in all Canada. The temptation to project one's memories against that background is a great one. But this year the minds of TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 5 many of us, whose memories date back beyond the turn of the century and for whom this is the third major war since or during our school days, look forward rather than back. In the first Great War it seemed that an ideal dear to all of us was to be made lasting for all of us. After this second Great War I think that the ideal of peace and free- dom on this earth must become a reality, a definite true and actual thing, or the future of all that we hold most dear grounds itself on guesswork. Any message therefore that can be brought by an Old Boy to those at the School to-day must be made up of two parts advice and one part of warning. Many disappointments and many hardships and heart- breaks lie in the years ahead, they can be met, accepted and defeated only if all of us, Old Boys and those at the School, shoulder responsibilities greater than those we have ever before been called upon to bear. Within the next few years, Canada will rapidly grow from a young nation to a country bearing its major share of the world's responsibilities and assuming the worries which go with that position. From what one has seen of the boys now at the School and what one knows of those on the School's Staff who lead and guide them, the future still shines brightly for us and for Canada. --J. Ewart Osborne V92-'951 President of the Old Boys' Association. as as se as as I send my warm congratulations to Trinity College School on the completion of seventy-five years of most honourable and useful service, and my very good wishes for the future. Our two institutions, Trinity College, Toronto, and Trinity College School, Port Hope, have been closely associated through all your history. Professor William Jones and others of our staff were interested- in the School in its early days and from Trinity College School there came to Trinity College a steady stream of men like Osler. 6 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Lampman, Brent and Anderson who were later on to achieve a fame far beyond the borders of their native land. We may look forward with confidence to the years to come. The School will, I am sure, maintain its present record. -F. H. Cosgrave, MLA., D.D. Provost of Trinity College, Toronto. Heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the 75th Anniversary of the Old School. With other Old Boys I rejoice in the School's record as shown in the character and service of so many of the sons of T.C.S. May the fine tradition of the past years be maintained in the future. Every good wish, Wilmot Niagara. IL. W. B. Broughall C88-'99 1 Lord Bishop of Niagara. if S 1' 8 is Your Headmaster has honoured me by the request that I should write a greeting to the School on the occasion of its 75th. anniversary. Founded in 1865, the School was partly the child of Trinity College, and so directly inherited the loyal British tradition of crown, state, and Church. We may wonder whether those Founders foresaw the glorious future which lay before the struggling colony of Upper Canada, at that time deeply and anxiously interested in the great struggle just concluded across the border, and her- self about to know the troubles of raids and rebellions. Be that as it may be, Trinity College School opened just be- fore the Confederation of the Dominion of Canadag and, from that fact, there lay before the Directors of the School, the Headmasters, the Masters, and the pupils, a field of ever increasing scope. In all walks of life, and in all parts of the world, will be found the Old Boys, maintaining the healthy, sound tradition of the School and its Founder. Above all are they pre-eminent in the Dominion itself, and their record is in- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 7 deed a proud one in the growth of Canada. During its '75 years the School has seen the transformation of Prince Rupert's land into the noble Provinces of the North West, it has witnessed the linking up by rail, road, and air, of all the scattered colonies which federated in 1867, and it has participated in the progress of the colony of Upper Canada through the stage of the self Governing Dominion to the free and unfettered membership of the British Common- wealth of Nations. This progress has not been easyg obstacles have had to be overcome, difficulties to be solved, both at home and abroad, some purely Canadian in their outlook, other of Imperial and World wide importance, some to be resolved by peaceful means, others necessitating military measures. Trinity College School has been repre- sented Well and fully on all these occasions, Whether it be the political, educational and commercial affairs, or in the campaign of South Africa and the Great War. In all, the Old Boys played their part. What of the future? At the moment the School is once more the participator in great events. Once more have its pupils rushed to support the just cause for which the Empire has taken up arms, with an unanimity unex- ampled in history. Victory achieved, then surely there opens to the School even greater prospects than the results attained in the past. In the World we hope to see, there will be such opportunities for service, such Work for the creation of imaginative, educated minds, such reliance on Well formed characters, that the men moulded and trained at Trinity College School will indeed be able to take their place, ever Working and living for the advancement of their God, their King, and their Country. -Sir G.

Fifty-five years is a long time in a man's life. It will be fifty-live years in July since I left T.C.S. My home having always been in British Columbia my visits to the School have not been frequent but I have never lost my affection for her nor my regard for my friends of those good school days, with whom I have always tried to keep in touch. During my life I have at all times been thankful for having had the privilege of having attended the School so, naturally, I am pleased to have this opportimity of acknowledging my debt to her and of expressing my grati- fication at the fact that she has now reached years of real maturity with her faculties unimpaired and in a healthier condition economically, better equipped than at any pre- vious time in her career to fulfil the purpose of her founders viz the turning out of good citizens and loyal Canadians. G. H. Barnard C82-'85J Member of the Governing Body. Member of the Senate, Canada. 8 8 lv i Q The Seventy-fifth Anniversary of the establishment of T.C.S. gives us Old Boys an opportunity to reaflirm our faith in it as one of the leading educational institutions for boys in Canada, and one which we all believe offers much more than a mere education. Its site on top of the hill amidst its ample acres is surely unexcelled for its purposes. Its comparatively new buildings provide every facility for the training of minds and bodies and for a comfortable communal life. The loyalty of men to their old schools is proverbial. It seems to me to exceed any feelings they may have for universities they may later attend. The affection of our Old Boys has been demonstrated by their generosity and by their unfiagging interest, and I, with others, am glad to pledge myself to sec that so far as in me lies the School TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 9 shall be a gainer by my connection with it. I shall work for its advancement and to assure for it increasing useful- ness and a long and brilliant future. R. P. Jellett V92-'97l Member of the Governing Body. o if as as ar I have been asked by the Headmaster to write a few words for the Trinity College School Record on the occasion of the School's Seventy-fifth Anniversary. I entered the School as a pupil in September, 1889. when the School was a mere twenty-four years old, and re- mained for four years. As my three sons all attended the School and as I have been a member of the Board of Governors for more than twenty years, I may properly claim that I have been in close touch with the School and its affairs for more than two-thirds of its honourable life of seventy-five years. I suppose that any institution which in a new country like Canada has attained the age of seventy-five years is to be congratulated. As the success or failure of such an institution as Trinity College School is dependent upon its friends and supporters, I take it that the School's friends and supporters, both past and present, are also to be congratulated. When I entered the School it was comparatively small and conditions were very primitive. In fact, no present- day mother who has any regard for her boy and no family physician would today approve of a boy attending an in- stitution if conditions were as primitive and unsanitary as were the conditions at the School fifty years ago. How- ever, the School has progressed with the times and, al- though it has suffered more than one major disaster, the result of such disasters is that the School today is a thor- oughly modern institution with buildings and equipment second to none in this country. ' About 1920 it was decided to erect a Junior School Building as a Memorial to the Old Boys who were killed in 10 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the War, and this was done partly by voluntary subscrip- tion and partly by the sale of the School's Bonds. In 1928 the Senior School Buildings, including the Chapel, Gymn- asium and Skating Rink, were completely destroyed by Iire. The friends of the School rallied to its assistance and the present School Buildings are the result. All told, in the last twenty years, the School's friends and sup- porters have contributed approximately 2B1,000,000.00 to the School, and I believe that the School is an Institution well worthy of this support and that the money has been well expended. I hope and trust that the School will be able to carry on for many years to come, adding through the years to its great traditions. In a comparatively short time the School should celebrate its One-Hundredth Anniversary and I only wish that I could hope to be present on that occasion. -R. C. H. Cassels, C89-'93J. Member of the Governing Body. if ik if if In adding my greetings to the many which the School will receive at this time, I cannot refrain from reminisc- ing just a little, because a list I have recently seen of my fellow members of the Football Team of Hfty years ago has brought back memories of schools days, some sad, many happy. I see myself a small boy, in strange sur- roundings, very home-sick and lonely: I again see myself when school days came to an end, regretfully saying good- bye to T.C.S. and many friends there: and I see through all the intervening years a never-lessening affection for the old School and wonder why this should be. It is not that I myself made any particular contribution to the School community during my time as a pupil, though in my last year I was appointed Head Prefect. As a scholar I was an unsatisfactory pupil from the Headmaster's point of view, but in spite of this the School did give much to me and to those of my and other genera- tions. We entered little more than children: we left I in TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 11 our opinionl men, and in the meantime had learned to Gnd our level among our fellows and be taught how to "play the game" according to the unwritten as well as the written laws, and above all, formed lasting friendships. It is per- haps chiefly because of these friendships that I and others retain our loyalty and affection for the School. Time brings many changes and schools must adapt themselves accordingly, but certain fundamentals do not change:-honesty, courtesy, fear of God-these have been the foundation of T.C.S. teaching for seventy-five years. May it so continue, then each succeeding generation will, as we, be proud to say "I am an old T.C.S. boy". -F. G. osler U87-'92,n. Member of the Governing Body. The Headmaster has very kindly invited me to send a. message of greeting to the School on the occasion of its 75th Anniversary. I gladly offer my sincere congratu- lations, though in doing so I have a feeling that I am con- gratulating myself, so much do I feel that I ftogether with the whole body of Old Boysl am part and parcel of the School. I also send my best wishes for the success of the celebrations on the lst of June, and I hope a great many Old Boys may find it possible to be present, each bringing with him a realization of the debt which he owes to the School. I am afraid a good many of us feel that having left the School fof course with fees and extras duly paid and satisfiedl the School is somewhatin debt to us, at least to the extent of being willing to supply us with beds and meals whenever we feel that a day or two at the School would cheer us up. Let us celebrate the 75th Anniversary by entering in our books a credit in favour of the School and satisfying it as and when we are able.- G. B. Strathy C95-'97l. Member of the Governing Body. 12 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD I gladly send felicitations to Trinity College School on the completion of seventy-five years of distinctive educa- tional service and proud tradition. In doing so I hope it is not inappropriate that I should attempt to look ahead rather than traverse the past. I would simply point out that we appear largely to have lost what Great Britain has retained as to individual, and per- haps family, responsibility in public affairs. In the old land, a certain well-defined obligation of the individual to the state has been an inheritance from the days of the feudal system. This has been held as a precious possession, and consequently scholars from public schools and univer- sities seek careers in the civil service and in parliament. The "Endless Adventure" of governing men is ever sought. In Canada we have not recognized in full measure this responsibility, but it remains latent in our manhood, and it would appear to be obvious that this dormant power can best be aroused to action within the framework of our educational system. The foimdation should be laid early in youth, once implanted, it will become a dominating in- fluence in our public and economic life. Hon. R. C.

In this respect we are exceedingly rich, for rarely, if ever, could a School have had a group of boys of whom it could be more proud. N ow numbering one hundred and fifty-eight, they come from ten different countries and six provinces of our own Dominion, and each one is doing his share to make our community life a most valuable preparation for the larger life of later years. In our Old Boys we are exceedingly rich, in looking over calendars of the years gone by it was a surprise to me to find that as long as fifty-four years ago our Old Boys began to organize with the purpose of assisting the School to maintain its distinguished place in the educa- tional life of this country. For longer even than this, our Old Boys have gone out of their Way to help the School to the best of their ability by Word or deed, and the ma- terial evidence of their kindness may be found principally in the five long lists of donations to the building funds, the first dating back to the earliest years. The School of to- day realizes that it would not be the school of to-day had it not been for the abiding affection and generosity of its sons. We are rich, too, in our staff. Men and women of diverse and distinct attainments, most of them have served the School for many years and all of them are serving it faithfully. The present teaching staff has a wealth of backgroundg they are graduates of, or have taken post- graduate courses at, the following universities: Cambridge, Oxford, London, Leeds, Geneva, Paris, Toronto, McGill, Queen's, Bishop's, King's, Mount Allison, Harvard, Cornell. and they have lived or travelled in most countries of Europe and the near East as well as Canada and the United States. Their average experience of teaching amounts to thirteen years. 14 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD We are most fortunately rich in the exceeding great generosity of our friends, the Ladies' Guild and many other benefactors, several of whom were closely associated with our Founder. One friend in particular can never be forgotten, for it was he who came to our rescue twice with unprecedented liberality in time of our direst need. We are rich indeed in our present buildings and equip- ment, more completely satisfying than any previous gen- eration of schoolboys knew, and enabling us to carry on and progress without any drawbacks. In bald iigures the present School has cost some thirteen hundred thousand dollars, of which some nine hundred thousand was given in funds or equipment by Old Boys and friends. We are deeply rich in our traditions and in our good name, gradually won and kept through the years by the efforts and lives of many hundreds of boys, and many masters. We are assuredly rich in the enviable reputations won by many of our Old Boys, some of whom became Canada's most internationally famous sons. But we are most rich in the untold power inherent in the life of every one at this School, power which could change night into day for many thousands of people, which could bring joy and health and courage and concord where sorrow and sickness and fear and discord now too often abound. May the School ever be rich in this power, and ever bc inspired to guide and develop it along the path of truth, wisdom. and understanding. --P.A.C.K.

Kermode Parr The Record in published :ix times a year, in the montb: of October, December, February, April, func and Auguxt EDITGRIAL This year Trinity College School attains the ripe old age of seventy-five. Now she is not a fledgeling, but the result of three-quarters of a century's growth and improve- ment, and the embodiment of traditions amassed through- out seventy-five years: she is older than the Dominion it- self. And yet the School is new. We are housed in fine, new buildings, taught by the most modern systems, gov- erned efficiently, and everything around us is up-to-date. This in itself is a virtue. Why, then, if we boast modernity, do we so proudly celebrate our anniversary? It is because, within these fine. new buildings are contained together the spirits of tradition and progress. To-day the School maintains the same high standing and reputation that it has maintained for seventy-tive years. To-day her sons are men of the same calibre as they were before we were born. To-day she is the same School, perhaps with some new blood, new ideas, new influences, but with the same settled character, the same memories, the same traditions, and even perhaps a few of the old names. 18 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD For in such an institution there are always names that will never disappear for very long from the roll. They have grown to us to be almost a part of our tradition. Some of Canada's most distinguished families are insepar- ably associated with T.C.S. In scarcely more than another score of years, we hope that we shall have the privilege of seeing another land- mark in the School's history, and that this will be in a better and more peaceful age. Long may she flourish, firmly rooted in a land of freedom, and may she continue to grow and thrive throughout the years to come! -K.G.P.

The Right Reverend Alton Ray Beverley, M.A., D.D.. Suiragan Bishop of Toronto, coniirmed the candidates and afterwards addressed them. In his sermon, Bishop Beverley spoke of St. Paul's use, in his letter to the Ephesians, of the imagery of armour for war, and how in the letter to the Galatians he described the panoply of peace. The virtues that make up this panoply of peace are: C11 Compassion, which is attributed to Jesus more than any other quality mentioned in the Bible. C21 Kindliness. Jesus' days were filled with acts of kindliness, to his enemies as well as to friends. C33 A Humble Mind. This was the only one of His own virtues to which Jesus called attention. "Learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly of heart." We must always be ready to learn. C49 For- bearance and Forgiveness. We must be patient with im- perfection in others, remembering how we may irritate them, and learn to show love and a forgiving spirit to those who have wronged us. 151 Love. This is the girdle of perfection, and the most important thing of all, for it is the spirit in which we do things that matters far more than the things themselves. After the Bishop's sermon, the Choir- gave a very beautiful rendering of Mendelssohn's anthem "I waited for the Lord". 20 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Those confirmed were: John Richard del Rio, Dean Sidley Dignam, Elbert Eugene Gibson, Barry Bonnycastle Peckman Erskine Stephen Hayes, Ernest Howard, Robert Mackenzie Hull, Owen Thomas Campbell Jones, David Ford Newbold Jones, David Ian MacDougal Keefier, John Peter Lawson, Geoffrey Francis Peter Layne, Francis Spencer Lewin, Frederick Boyd Michael, Arthur Edward Millward, Halsey Knapp Olds, Norman Reed Paterson, John Ham Perry, John Barthelemy Irving Sutherland, Frederick Victor Topping. Sunday, February 25th. The Headmaster read the letter which President Roosevelt Wrote to Pope Pius XII at Christmas time, stressing the fact that the President be- lieves ill Wars will cease because men in their hearts dis- like the religion of brute force. 121 That already a new order is being built, silently but inevitably, by the people who believe in a God of righteousness, in a divine plan, and who accept the moral law of Christian civilization as a basis for their lives. C31 That the new day will dawn the more quickly if the common man and woman will prepare himself to take his part, and make his contribution to the cause of righteous dealing and friendly association between man and man everywhere. Sunday, March 3rd, Speaking in connection with the special appeal of the M.S.C.C. for our Western Missions, the Chaplain drew an analogy from the parable of the Im- portunate Friend, showing how the Church was obliged to appeal to her members at this time in order to meet a three- fold need: the relief of dioceses in Saskatchewan still suffering from the effects of drought, the maintenance of frontier missionsg and the support of our missionary clergy.

The Chaplain preached. He re- called some of the things said against Jesus by ill-wishers: "He is a friend of publicans and sinners", "a gluttonous man and a wine-bibber". The first, the Chaplain said, bore witness to the realityand courage of our Lord's comrade- ship, and the second to the fact that Jesus impressed men as cordial and genial. It is recorded that "Jesus wept", but that fact is mentioned because it was so exceptional. On the other hand, our Lord's gladness was so usual, so common, that no one thought of recording it. The Chaplain said that the testimony of the enemies of Jesus bore wit- ness to the truth that our Lord performed miracles, and that their last taunt Hung at him was the bitterest, and yet the truest-"He trusted in God, let Him deliver Him."

This is the first Guggenheim fellowship in painting to be awarded to a Canadian. Mr. Schaefer expects to spend most of his time in New England and in the Middle West. The Pictures in this Record The pages of photographs in this number include views of all the buildings the School has used, portraits of all the Headmasters, and many other pictures of special interest to Old Boys. Some have been copied from old numbers of the Record, a number are printed from plates originally made more than a quarter of a century ago. It is naturally not possible to obtain perfection of printing with such engravings, but it was felt that these, in spite of blemishes, would be the most appropriate to the occasion and the most interesting to Old Boys. Since 1918, with the exception of the Woodstock years, the Record has been printed at the office of The Cobourg World, which was founded just one year before Trinity College School. Other Reports Owing to lack of space in this special number, reports of debates, basketball, squash and some other material have been postponed to the June issue. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 25 .i SCHOOL vs. PICKERING COLLEGE At Port Hope, February 28th. This was one of the fastest and most exciting games of the season. The teams were evenly matched and dis- played fine hockey, with the T.C.S. team emerging as de- finitely superior in the last ten minutes of play. The first period opened quietly, but the play was soon quickened when Duggan ii. scored for the School. As everyone had expected a hard struggle with Pickering, the cheering was loud and long, but it was even more so when Somerville scored two quick goals, on passes from Caldwell and Spence respectively. After Bishop scored for the visitors, the period ended with the score 3 to 1 in the Schoo1's favour. Both Erenhous and Henry, the rival goal-tenders, per- formed brilliantly in the second period, and the only suc- cessful marksman was Creed, who scored for Pickering in a clever play. In the third period the School had all the best of the play. McAvity scored on a nice solo effort, and a few minutes later Somerville broke away twice, finding the net on his second attempt. Creed scored another goal for the Visitors and the count was then 5-3 for T.C.S. From that point the School pressed continuously and kept Pickering bottled up in their own end for the rest of the time. Cald- well combined cleverly with McAvity for a well-earned goal. 26 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD There was a Pickering penalty but the School failed to take advantage of the opportunity. Shortly afterwards, the Pickering captain, Hall, was forced to retire from the game with a cut below the eye. Duggan ii. then scored two fine goals, ably assisted by Finley and Cayley, who had bad luck on several other breakaways. . Duggan ii., Somerville and Erenhous were particular- ly successful for the School, but the whole team played very well. Creed, Henry and Bishop were outstanding for the visitors. Final score: T.C.S. 8, Pickering 3. SCHOOL vs. OLD BOYS At Port Hope, March 9th. An assortment of Old Boys suffered a 7-1 defeat at the hands of the iirst team in the last game of the season. The first period discovered little difference between the two teams, in an exhibition of rather ragged hockey. Both goalkeepers made some good saves, and Fleming scored the only goal on a pass from Caldwell. The last two periods produced very much better hockey and a good deal of excitement. Fleming and Duggan ii. combined to get the second T.C.S. goal, the latter actually putting the puck in. Peter Osler beat Erenhous with a shot from the blue-line for the Old Boys' only point. Duggan, Caldwell and Jones 123 scored the remaining goals. Newman and Braden starred for the Old Boys, and while his exact status might be a matter of technical argu- ment, the School roared approval of Milton Burt's appear- ance on the ice. The Old Boys' team included Newman, Cassels, Braden, Holton, Peter Osler, Pat Osler, Kerr, Rawlinson, Dave Seagram, Somers, T. Taylor and Eric Taylor. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 27 MIDDLESIDE Middleside played six games this season, losing three of them and winning three. They played Upper Canada. St. Andrew's and Lakefield and with each team lost the first game and won the second. In view of the fact that they were largely self-coached during the first part of the season, their record is a creditable one. The first game of the season was against U.C.C., and the team suffered a 3-2 defeat at their hands. The School lost by a large margin to S.A.C. in the second game. The final score was 7-1. Lakefield was played next and we were defeated by a score of 7-2. From then on the School overrode all opposition. They completely outplayed St. Andrew's and won 7-1. They then defeated the Grove decisively, winning by a score of 9-4. In the last game of the season, against U.C.C., they chalked up another victory. The final score of this game was 8-4. Middleside this year produced some players who should make excellent material for next year's Bigside. The team, as a Whole, showed excellent team-work and good co- operation. There was never any lack of spirit and the team never stopped trying. Cawley led the scoring with nine points to his credit. Fairweather came next with six goals, followed by Black who scored five times. The work of Lemesurier and Parr on defence and of Langmuir in the nets was also noteworthy. The line-up: Goal - Langmuir CI-ligginsl, defence, Black, Le- Mesurier, Parr, Lawson, forwards, Cawley, Elliott, Lyall, Hart, Fairweather, Birks. LITTLESIDE Littleside played only two outside games this season, the first against Upper Canada College and the other against Lakefield. The School won both games, the latter 28 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD by a wide margin. It was most unfortunate that U.C.C. had to cancel their return game at the last moment. In the game against Upper Canada good hockey was seen and excitement ran high. The score was tied 2-2 at full time, which necessitated an overtime period. Mc- Lean scored the deciding goal for T.C.S. In the game against the Grove, T.C.S. had a decided edge on the play. McLean scored four times, Dalton and Waters each got two goals and Parker one. The Hnal score was 9-1 in favour of T.C.S. Several other games were played against the Junior School. This was the best Littleside team for some years, and it was a great pity that other schools found it impossible to play us.

Probably the best outdoor ice of the year was enjoyed as late as Saturday, March 13th. The first hockey team, as was recorded in the pre- vious number, did not win any of their regular school games but always gave a good account of themselves and need not in any way be ashamed of their efforts. The second team were rather more successful from the stand- point of victories, winning both the School matches with Lakefield. SCHOOL OFFICIALS Captain of Hockey-J. Symons.

J. Ewart Osborne came to T.C.S. in 1892 from Brantford and left in 1895 to go to McGill. In 1902 Col. Osborne joined the 48th Highlanders, while he was a stock- broker in Toronto, so that he is now one of the senior members of that famous regiment. He went overseas in the last war with the fifteenth battalion and was taken prisoner of war at the second battle of Ypres. He has now retired from business but he is taking a most generous and active interest in the affairs of his old School. We are proud to have him as the President of our association. OUR SENIOR LIVING OLD BOY L. K. Jones, now of 15 MacKenzie Apartments, Ottawa. entered the School in September, 1865 and left in July, 1867 to enter Trinity College. He is number 21 on the School list out of 3418 T.C.S. boys. L. K. Jones and W. Osler were in the group of boys summoned to court in April, 1866, for "trying to fumigate the matron and her daughter out of their room"! The boys were let oif with a reprimand and a fine of one dollar each. After leaving College, Jones was closely associated with the building of the old Intercolonial Railway and later became secretary to Sir Collingwood Schrieber, the chief consulting engineer during the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway. He was with Sir Collingwood until the Transcontinental line was completed and then became secretary of the Department of Railways and Canals and later Deputy Minister. He was also secretary of the famous arbitration case between the C.P.R. and the Government of the United States, which went on for several years and with which were connected such famous men. as B. B. Osler, Christopher Robinson, Chancellor Boyd, and George Black- stock. 34 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The School is proud to have a message of congrat- ulation from L. K. Jones, and sends its warmest good wishes to him. FINANCIAL STATEMENT for the year ended December 31st., 1939.

HISTORY Reprinted from the lubilee Number of the Record, 1915. Reminiscences of Dr. A. Jukes Johnson 118651 Years before the Trinity College School came into existence there was in the village of Weston, then ten long miles away from Toronto, a little school that had crept into being as the result of necessity. The Rev. William Arthur Johnson, Rector of St. Phillip's, Weston, saw this necessity. He had three boys to educate. None of the boys' schools in Ontario at that time were distinctly Church schools. He therefore determined to start one himself. fl i 3 Il: i This school was started in a very small way, at the Rector's own personal expense, and upon his own responsi- bility. It was known as "Weston", with a monogram com- posed of all the letters of the word. It was not in the village, but on the west bank of the Humber River, opposite the residence of the late W. R. Wadsworth, the owner of the mill which still stands at the foot of the hill, into the walls of which is built a stone inscribed "Weston, Fair Babylon," the original name of the village. fr as as as is The Foundation As this school grew and its requirements became greater, the possibility of connecting it with Trinity College, the only Church University, became a matter for considera- tion. With this object in view, the Rector had some corre- spondence with the Governing body of Trinity University. as a consequence of which he was asked to attend a special meeting of this body and explain what he proposed to do. His proposition was that he should place his school under the control of Trinity College, to be thereafter 46 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD carried on as THE Trinity College School, the aim and object of which should be the preparation of boys for Trin- ity University. That he should give his time as a Master, teaching French, drawing and Water-colour painting, with- out remuneration, and that some moneys, amounting to about 35900, which had been subscribed or donated by his personal friends to help in the project of a church school for boys, should be handed over to Trinity University upon the understanding that the school be called "The Trinity College School." The Reverend Provost Whittaker was willing to accept the offer that this boys' school should be A Trinity College School, but this the Rector would not agree to, and for a time it seemed as if the whole matter was likely to drop. The Rector did not propose to allow his school to become merely one of a number of schools who should have the privilege of using the name of "Trinity," It must be the one and only Trinity College School, or else it would have nothing to do with Trinity. After some further correspondence, the following reso- lution shows the circumstances under which Trinity College accepted this gift:- Covr or RESOLUTION PASSED BY THE CORPORATION OF TRINITY COLLEGE, 8th November, l864. Prolfosed School Report of Committee: The Committee appointed as to the proposed school made tln- following report: The Committee appointed to consider whether any steps should be taken to cstablifh a School in connection with Trinity College, beg to report that they had before them a proposal made by the Reverend W. A. Iohnson, of Weston, to establish a School at or near Weston, under the sanction of Trinity College, and under such regulations as to discipline and the course of study as the Corporation of Trinity College may approve, the appointment of Masters being also subject to the approval of the Corporation. Mr. lohnson is willing to make himself responsible for the em- penses of the establishment, provided that he is aided by the approval and counten- ance of the Corporation, and authorized to advertise the connection of the School with the College: and also to state that Annual Examinations will be conducted by 'bf P'0l4'U0'f, 'md Pfiies given by the Corporation. Mr. Iohnson has further in- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 47 formed the Committee that he has at his disposal a sum of 5900.00 which he is pre- pared to employ in the purchase of School Buildings, or of a site, as may be thought best, to be -rested in the Corporation of Trinity College. The Committee recommend the following resolution to be adopted by the Corporation: That the Corporation of Trinity College accept the proposal of the Reverend W. A. Iohnson, with an acknowledgement of the disinterested zeal which it discovers in the cause of Church Education, re-appoints the Committee for the purpose of conferring with llflr. Iohnson on the details of his plan, and with authority to rake any such steps as in their judgment shall appear expedient. Report and Resolution adopted. After this the formation of the School went on com- paratively rapidly. There were some difliculties, however, to be met. In the Hrst place, there were no buildings. The school- room which had been used by the original school was small and out of the Way, and no buildings could be obtained in the village. To meet this difficulty, a large breakfast-room in the half basement of the parsonage was fitted up with desks, Master's table, etc., and in this the School was open- ed in 1865. Here the boys all learned their lessons in the evenings, and many of the classes received their instruction during the day. As soon as the first circular announcing the establish- ment of the School Was issued a number of boys applied, but there was nowhere to put them-again the parsonage was made use of. Fortunately it had large bedrooms, and three of these were immediately filled with School beds, and some 16 or 18 boys were accommodated. And the large dining-room was cleared of furniture and two long tables, one on each side of the room, were connected at the lower end by a cross table. At the end of one table sat the Warden, at the end of the other the Head Master, while Mrs. Johnson sat at the middle of the cross table. Grace was said by the Head Master before and after meals -in Latin-and any misbehaviour, or neglect of the con- ventionalities of civilized people, were dealt. with by the Head Master immediately after the meal in a Way which left an impression. 48 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The Founder The staff of the School consisted of: the Warden, the Head Master, with one or two assistant masters, a. drill instructor. music master. Of the Rev. W. A. Johnson, Sir Wm. Osler, in an ad- dress at Guy's Hospital in 1905 on the Religio Medici, used the following words:- "As a boy it was my good fortune to come under the influence of a parish priest of the Gilbert White type, who followed the seasons of nature no less ardently than he followed those of the Church, and whose excursions into science had brought him into contact with physic and physicians. "Father Johnson, as his friends loved to call him, founder and warden of The Trinity College School near Toronto, illustrated that angelical conjunction Ito use Cotton Mather's wordsl of medicine and divinity more common in the 16th and 17th centuries than in the 19th. An earnest student of Sir Thomas Brown, particularly of the Religio Medici, he often read us extracts in illustration of the body of the English language, or he would entertain us with some of the author's quaint conceitsf' He took charge of the teaching on all religious matters and during certain days in the week gave instruction in the Church Catechism, Bible History, etc., to the various classes. But this was not all. This was essentially a Church School, and its tone was always a little different to that of other schools, for on and beyond all class teaching there was teaching of a practical character, a more or less church character that was always perceptible. Every boy was taught the two great commandments, his duty to God, and his duty to his neighbour, but each and every boy was taught that "Duty" exceeded every other demand that a man should recognize. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 49 The First Masters The Head Master was the Reverend Charles Howard Badgeley. He lived in rooms built off the parsonage, and very comfortable rooms they were. From his study window the Windows of the school-room in the half base- ment could be easily seen, and the boys had the great ad- vantage of never knowing whether the Head Master was watching them at their studies or not. Mr. Badgeley was a large man, with a tall athletic figure. His manner was delightful and his face kind, though his deep-set eyes were heavily shaded by black eyebrows. He had long black whiskers and a very decided mouth. He was a man of high scholarly attainments, a son of Dr. Badgley, well-known by reputation to the parents and grand-parents of many of the boys. S -'S if Ill if Mr. Litchfield, who acted as Mr. Badgley's assistant, was an Englishman and a bachelor. He was a tall, hand- some man, very highly connected, quiet and exclusive as only an Englishman can be. He was recently from one of the English universities, and probably had not overcome the shock that many Englishmen experience when they come in contact with Canadian methods. He was not very long with the School, as he was called back to England on some private business. Mr. Sefton came out from Toronto each Friday even- ing and stayed over Saturday and Sunday at the parson- age. He was a very jolly Englishman, who knew all about church music and probably many other things also. He taught music to private pupils and trained the boys to sing in the choir. Mr. Carter was a great friend of the boys. He taught them many wonderful things about cricket and was always ready to act as umpire or take a bat as the case might be, and for a time taught classics. 50 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Captain Goodwin, a thorough old soldier who boasted on having attained his 18th birthday on the very day that he fought at Waterloo, was adored by all the boys. He drilled them and taught them the manly art of self-defence. He was an expert swordsman, and when he was not teach- ing always had a bunch of boys round him who listened with delight to his many stories of military life. Although a very old man, he was upright and carried himself as if he were a much younger man. RECOLLECTIONS OF DR. BETHUNE The first governing body consisted of Bishop Strachan. of Toronto, and Bishop Lewis, of Ontario, as visitors, the Hon. J. Hillyard Cameron, Chancellor of Trinity University, Provost Whitaker, Professors Ambery, Jones and Bovell, and Mr. Badgley, ex officio members, and the following elected members: Rev. W. A. Johnson, Archdeacon Bethune Csecond Bishop of Torontol, Rev. Dr. Fuller Cfirst Bishop of Niagaral, Rev. J. G. Geddes, Rector of Hamilton, Hon. G. W. Allan Csubsequently Chancellorl, and Mr. C. J. Camp- bell of Toronto. On the first of May, 1865, the School was opened in the village of Weston with only nine pupils, ten more were added after the summer holidays. Some of the boys were provided for in the Rectory, the rest lived with Mr. Badg- ley, the Head Master, in a house rented for the purpose, in which were also the class-rooms. Mr. Johnson built a neat wooden chapel at the entrance to his garden, and there the School services were held. On Sunday mornings the boys went to the parish church, which was some little distance away on the other side of the River Humber. The staff consisted of the Head Master, Mr. Johnson for French and Drawing, Mr. L. H. Evans for Mathematics, and two visiting instructors from Toronto for Singing and Drill. 8 l if O 8 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 51 My younger brother, Rev. F. A. Bethune, became a member of the staff in 1867 and lived with Mr. Badgley. I remember saying to him, when he told me of his appoint- ment, "Well, Fred, to be a school-master is the last thing I should care to undertake!"-little thinking that the best part of my life would be spent in what I then supposed to be uncongenial drudgery. At the following Eastertide, he and Mr. Badgley walked over from Weston and spent a few days with me. sr s ar as as Removal to Port Hope The daily control of the School was naturally in the hands of the Head Master, but a number of boys lived with Mr. Johnson at the Rectory, and these were only with Mr. Badgley during school-hours. Before long this divided authority led to friction-arrangements made by the Head Master were some times disregarded by the Rector, and plans of the latter overruled by the Head Master. As time went on the relations between them became so strained that separation was imperative, and at the end of three years it was decided to remove from Weston. Various places were suggestedg ..... Finally through the influence and exertions of Mrs. Fraser and her brother Colonel Williams, personal friends of Mr. Badgley, it was decided to go to Port Hope. A committee of townspeople was formed and a sum of money provided by means of which the Ward homestead, northeast of the town, was rented, and also a building in the town to serve for class-rooms and chapel. These premises were offered to the School free of rent for three years. In September, 1868, the re- moval was carried out, and a new regime was entered upon. k 8 IF if 11 First Years at Port Hope The site of the Ward house is now occupied by the Head Master's Lodge. It was a large old-fashioned coun- try house, built of wood, two storeys in height, in front 52 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD and on the east side was a broad verandah, on the west flower beds and shrubbery, and on the east a spacious kitchen garden and fruit trees, while in front was a narrow lawn with some large shade treesg then as now, the views over the lake, the Hamilton township hills, and the town of Cobourg in the distance were very beautiful. Entering the house, the Head Master's oflice and study was on the left, and the Matron's rooms on the right, with the kitchen behindg over these were four or five bedrooms. At the back of the original house various lath and plaster addi- tions had been made at different times, these furnished a large dining room, used as the boys' study in the evening, with a big dormitory, holding a dozen beds, above, and a variety of smaller rooms. The whole structure provided accommodation for about thirty boys, four masters, matron and servants. A cottage across the road, now converted into a hospital, gave some further sleeping quarters. The classrooms were in a three-storey brick building near the Registry Office in the town, fully half a mile away: the ground lioor was neatly fitted up as a Chapel, in which services were held on Sundays and Saints' days, on Sunday morning, however, the boys were marched over to St. John's Church on the opposite side of the town, a mile and a half from the School. The Sunday afternoon service was choral, with a surpliced choir of boys, and was attend- ed by a few of the St. John's congregation. Dr. O'Meara, the rector, disapproved of the mild ritual of the Chapel, and objected to the attendance of any of his fiock, and at length appealed to the Bishop for protection against this intrusion into his parish. The result was that Mr. Badgley was instructed to confine attendance at the Chapel to actual members of the School. The resignation of Mr. Badgley was a very' serious matter and caused much anxiety to Professors Jones and Ambery, who at that time took a deeper interest in the 4.. 73'ff gig? -2- -4 E39 FTW FT1 Q :Jwm Q ?E RFQ 'm2UQU A ,uw lj , 1-1 -.1 M.

O 0 t fl 0 Dr. Bethnme's Arrival By the middle of July, 1870, it had .... been settled that I was to succeed Mr. Badgley as Head Master of the School, it however being stipulated that I should enter upon its charge free from any burden of debt. This pre- sented a difficulty, as the School had failed to pay its way, and there were many tradesmen's bills due, with insufficient funds to meet them. Professor Jones undertook to solve the difliculty by collecting a sum of money, contributed by himself and friends, and arranging with the creditors to allow a discount off their bills? O O O Q i When School opened in September the staff only con- sisted of my brother, Mr. Harrington and myself. On the first of September I went down to Port Hope and installed myself as Head Master, Mrs. Marmion, our excellent matron, and her staff of servants were there, and I was made very comfortable. A round of exploration the next morning revealed that Mr. Badgley had removed all the furniture of class-rooms and Chapel from the build- ing in town, to the yard of the Ward house, and there the things were piled up in the open air without protection! This was somewhat of a shock, as we had a right to use the building for another year free of charge. On looking round the premises I found a large empty frame building, once used as stable and coach-house, and which seemed readily convertible into class-rooms. In the course of a few days, it was thoroughly cleaned, the walls sheeted With pine boards, some windows inserted and partitions erected so as to form three rooms--and very satisfactory they 'These discounts were repaid to the tradesmen some years afterwards-much to their surprise and gratification. 54 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD proved'. The Chapel-room in the town building was re- iitted, and there we continued the School services, using a room above for the choir vestry. This arrangement was a relief to me, as I did not at all like having to march the boys down town and back twice a day for their lessons, no matter what the weather might be. if if ik if if On September the 14th School began with 32 boys, two of whom were day-boys from the town, there were twelve newcomers and twenty who had been with Mr. Badgley. The classes were held in the building fitted up for the pur- pose in the rear, and work was satisfactorily carried on. The smallness of the numbers was an advantage to me, as I was able to know the boys intimately and to form friend- ships with some of them, which have continued ever since. The school-work, also, was not too laborious, though I took the highest forms in all their subjects. The boys were well-behaved, happy and contented, and my two assistants most helpful in every way. ll Il i 1 8 In the spring of 1871 the middle portion of the School building was begun and its exterior completed by Septem- ber, all was ready for occupation in January, 1872. Mr. Henry J. Campbell Cafterwards an assistant master! and his chum, James Coxworthy, were, by special permission, tha- Hrst to sleep in the new building. The lease of the building in the town expired during the summer of 1871, and the Chapel furniture was removed to the School premises. Michaelmas Term began on the 20th of September with 26 new boys and a total attendance of over iifty. Mr. John A. Worrell fnow Chancellor of Trinity University and of the Diocese of Toronto, K.C., D.C.L.l took the place of Mr. Harrington on the staff. The 'This frzum- building still stands behind the School, now being use-rl as a barn. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 55 building in the rear was still used for class-rooms, but we had no Chapel. On Saturday evenings, after the work- men had left, my brother and I with the aid of some boys, carried the Chapel furniture into the large room known as the "Senior Study", and services were held there on Sun- day, the fittings being removed again that evening. The room was floored, but had no ceiling nor glass in the windows, the corridor and entrance hall had loose boards laid on the joists. After a few Sundays the weather be- came colder and so the windows were covered with cotton cloth to keep out the wind. We were quite pleased with this arrangement, but it soon came to an end, the plasterers began their work, making a mess that it was impossible to do anything with, and we were reluctantly obliged to march the boys over to St. John's Church on Sunday morn- ings for the rest of the term, evening prayers were held in the dining room. if PF ii if IX: The New Building January, 1872, was the beginning of a new era. The central portion of the building was completed and occupied by the boys, masters, matron and servants. The "Junior Study" was used as a dining room, the rooms at the back of the Ward house provided class-rooms, and the building in the rear was fitted up as a Chapel. The School was in- corporated by Act of the Ontario Legislature, which de- fined the Corporation and Governing Body, gave permission to hold real estate, and established the School upon an in- dependent footing. In 1873 the Chapel and dining-hall at the east end of the building were erected, the latter being ready for use at the beginning of Michaelmas Term, but the Chapel was not completed till some months later and was opened for Divine Service on Palm Sunday, 1874. This event was a great joy to us all, and enabled us to conduct the services in a much more dignified and impressive manner than was possible in our various temporary quar- ters. 56, TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD In 1874 the completion of the building by the erection of the western addition, which contained the speech-room, more class-rooms, dormitories, matron's apartments, sick- rooms, etc., was begun. It was a venturesome undertaking, as we had incurred a considerable debt through our build- ing operations and I had not a single dollar of subscriptions for the new structure. I was obliged to borrow money at eight and ten per cent. on my personal liability, and risked everything on the venture. My faith in the success of the School was unbounded, and I believed that if the necessary accommodation could be provided the building would be filled with boys and we should in time be relieved of debt. My hopes were in due course fulfilled, but there was a long period of anxiety and arduous work. i 3 S Q if When I came to Port Hope in 1870 the School did not possess a foot of land or a brick building. I left it twenty- nine years later with almost its present equipment, with the exception of the hospital and skating-rink. After the completion of the building, all went well with the School for many years, and there is little to record respecting it. In 1873 the Rev. W. E. Cooper became a member of the staff and took the highest forms in mathe- matics, he remained with us for seventeen years, and then resumed parochial work, becoming successively rector of Grafton, Campbellford and St. Martin's, Toronto. In 1875 ten acres of land adjoining the original prem- ises on the west were purchased from the University of Toronto and prepared for cricket and football grounds, during the following spring trees were planted along the south and west boundaries, most of which are now Sturdy and vigorous. if if it 8 1 The year 1876 was rendered memorable by the lom of the services of the Rev. F. A. Bethune, who had been for nine years a most zealous and efficient assistant master, TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 57 and was much beloved by all the boys who had come under his charge ..... To commemorate his faithful services as Master and Priest, a fund was raised to provide the scholar- ships bearing his name, and the chancel of the Chapel was completed by the erection of the handsome carved oak Bishop's throne and sediliag the latter unfortunately was destroyed in the fire of 1895. The first of the scholarships were offered for competition in 1883. :F if Ik Ik is In 1891 my health became impaired, after more than twenty years of somewhat arduous work. In order to lighten the burden it was arranged that I should take the position of Warden, and that the Rev. Arthur Lloyd, Pro- fessor at Trinity College, formerly of the Imperial Uni- versity in Japan, should be appointed Head Master in charge of the teaching and discipline of the School. This arrangement only continued for two years and proved by no means a success. Mr. Lloyd was a scholar of exceptional ability and attainments, but lacked some of the require- ments essential for the government of a boys' school. A variety of troubles occurred and some misfortunes, for which he was in no way responsible, and which led him to resign in 1893. He returned to Japan in the summer and I resumed my former position as Head Master. O 8 G 0 G - 1 rf, ' V -'ff' 4 ., . . 1.2 ,f 4- , If ffff-'Za' 2 2 , 24 , ,f ii" 755' ' , 11 'f ,I A: T.

Cricket was kept alive by the Rev. F. A. Bethune. Ceaseless and tireless was he in coaching the team ...... We had only two matches in the year, one with Upper Canada College, and the other with the village, as I re- collect. On the latter occasion Vernon and Rien Wads- worth played for the village, and for the School, Sir William Osler, who was then studying medicine in Toronto, came out to play. Occasionally a match between the Parsonage and The School House was played, but more often from thirteen to fifteen boys turned out for practice in an organized game. Our football was merely an amusement, we had no one to play with except the Weston Public or High School. It had its uses, however, for occasionally a score was paid off on some one's shins. I think I ought not to omit the regulations as to iight- ing. Fighting on account of passion, revenge, or hatred was forbidden. As a trial of strength or skill it was per- missible under conditions. If two boys wanted to iight, they were obliged to ask the leave of a prefect. If there was any bad blood between them, leave was refused. If not, it was granted, but the boys had to fight in the presence of the prefect. If a boy appeared at table with a black eye or a damaged nose, he was simply asked its cause, and, if it was a fight, whether a prefect had been present. If so, no more questions were asked, except, perhaps, who got the worst of it. if Q O O il No School is complete without its tuck-shop. A very modest little brick cottage stood in the woods alongside the railway and on the opposite side from the Parsonage. This was the tuck-shop. Of course it did not approach the excellence of the tuck-shop of modern days. But the patronage was quite extensive. The proprietor was called by the boys Felix. Why, I don't think anyone ever knew. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 59 Whether he got his name from the Acts of the Apostles, or from his happy disposition, I cannot say. He did not resent being called Felix, and never insisted upon being called by his own name, which was convenient as nobody knew it. IX: 5-If fl: Pk! 221: Speech-day was celebrated at Trinity College, as being more accessible to the friends of the School than Weston. At any rate there was no room available in either The School House or the schoolhouse, and in the autumn of that year the Fifth Form matriculated at Trinity College. 8 3 3 1 if Recollections of The Ven. Archdeacon Ingles It was in the summer of 1871 that the cricket matches between T.C.S. and Upper Canada College were resumed, having been discontinued since the School left Weston. To this day the U.C.C. match is the big event of the School year. Dr. Bethune, from the very first, realised that the best influence of the School would not be felt upon the char- acters of the boys until the Chapel services had a larger part in the School life. Each day prayers were held in the School dining room, both morning and evening, but this was naturally felt insuilicient, and "the Head" planned in some Way to provide a Chapel nearer than the foot of Protestant Hill for the School services, and on return of the boys after the summer holidays of 1871 they found that the opening of the new building had made it possible for the class-rooms in the old shed to be turned into a com- modious and seemly little Chapel Where we now turned not only for our daily morning and evening prayers dur- ing the Week. but for our Sunday morning and afternoon services. ' 8 O if 8 8 60 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Speech-day, 1871, was the first occasion when the Bronze Medal was awarded, which is the coveted reward of every boy. The medal was presented to the School by two ladies, who made the stipulation that it should be awarded on vote of the masters to the boy who stood Hrst in "Industry, Integrity and Courtesy," and was awarded to the head boy, "Shy" Campbell, who also obtained the Chancellor's and other prizes as well. As is so often the case, the boy who thus stood Hrst excelled not only in a scholastic way, but stood well in sport, and was one of the best bowlers we have had on the cricket team. 8 ll 1 8 O Speech-day, 1873, was marked by the laying of the corner stone of the new Chapel by the Grand Master of the Masonic Order, the Rev. Vincent Clementi being Grand Chaplain. Michaelmas term saw the Chapel, though not completed, yet ready for occupation, and in beauty and every outward thing which would tend to increase rever- ence in worship, contrasted greatly with the former Chapels of the School. With the building of the Chapel and the dining-room underneath, the buildings were completed so far as the period of 1870-74 knew them, though the end with the tower towards the town was afterwards added and completed before the period of the great fire. 3 I 3 Il 8 hgh- Q . ,.' 1 . l ..

Broughall On the night of Saturday, February 9th., 1895, at the end of a week of exceptionally cold weather following very heavy snowfalls, lire destroyed the School building. Storms had cut off our water supply and deep drifts made it im- possible for the iire brigades of Port Hope and Cobourg to render edective help. Thus next morning only the Head Master's house, the gymnasium and the outbuildings re- mained standing. The sense of loss, however, was for the time being forgotten in thankfulness that all the boys, asleep when the fire broke out, were safe. Next day Dr. Bethune laid plans for the resumption of work. The St. Lawrence Hall, with its furniture, hotel license and goodwill was taken over, a building formerly occupied by the Bank of Toronto, was rented, and the use of rooms in the Town Hall was given by the Council. On the Tuesday following the fire--never were longer two days than that Sunday and Monday-we were glad to be at work again and classes were meeting in the bar-room, sample rooms, and office of the hotel, and in the Police Court, Council Chamber and other rooms of the Town Hall. Here one cannot but recall the kindness of the people of Port Hope. When we were left homeless in the small hours of Sunday morning, every class and creed opened their homes to us, and gladly entertained the boys until their new quarters were ready for them. It was, indeed, but an extension, if a very generous extension, of the hospitality which was always accorded in the town to boys and masters alike. In this connection it is a pleasure to recall also the kindness which we received in the homes of the married masters, and I should like to mention Dr. and Mrs. Bethune and Mr. and Mrs. Montizambert, to whom we owed many kindnesses. In Michaelmas term, 1895, during the month of October, we moved into the new building. The heating apparatus was not fully installed, and the cheerfulness 62 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD with which the boys endured the consequent discomfort was most praiseworthy. The same cheerfulness was the one redeeming featurc when on a notable occasion later in the term the School as a whole received the due reward of their deeds. During this term also we had the satisfac- tion of winning our first football match from our ancient friends and opponents. The period I have undertaken closes with the farewell of Dr. Bethune in July 1899. "He that ruleth, with diligence," was the watchword, he told us on his last Speech-day, with which he had begun his work. Entering the School early in 1876, to matriculate in 1880, and return- ing as a master in 1887, I had a better opportunity than most to appreciate the diligence with which he ruled the School he madeg but the proof of it was to be seen by all in the work accomplished. 8 W 0 O If l f TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD From the Rev. Dr. Rigby's Memories I may say that I was in close touch with the School for some time before I was appointed Headmaster, having been a member of the Governing Body for twelve years, and for several years its Secretary. It was therefore, my pleasant duty to pay frequent visits to Port Hope during the Headmasterships of Dr. Bethune, Mr. Edmunds Jones and Dr. Symonds, and thus I came to be on friendly terms with several of the masters. This was a great help to me when I was called to take charge in August, 1903, and I cannot say too much of the assistance I received from the old members of the staff, especially Mr. Nightingale, the Housemaster, during my first two years in oiiice. It was a great loss to me when he resigned to open his school in Edmonton. The help he gave was continued by his suc- cessors, Mr. Broughall, Mr. Miller, and Mr. Boyle. Each had his own special gifts, but all were alike in their loyal devotion to the School and the interests of the boys. Only those acquainted with the inner workings of the School know the value of the services rendered by the House- masters and the immense amount of work they undertake. if Pl if 4 12 Owing to the lack of funds, the interior of the Chapel had been left unfinished, and though the great possibilities of the building were evident the general effect was very depressing. It was Dr. Symonds who began the move- ment for its completion and beautification. By a happy inspiration he hit upon the idea of enlisting the interest of the mothers of the boys, and other ladies, friends of the School. Thus the T.C.S. Ladies' Guild was inaugurated, and the late Mrs. E. B. Osler became its active president. At his last Speech Day the three centre lights in the Sanctuary were dedicated to the memories of Lieutenant Harvey, the Farncomb brothers, and the brothers Scott- Howard. Rapidly the work went forward. A carpet for the Sanctuary was given by the Peterborough ladies, the 64 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD gallery was completed, and provided with seats, and its beautiful oak front erected by the efforts of the ladies of Port Hope. The Sanctuary carved oak ceiling, and the ceiling of the nave were soon added. Then the walls were tinted, and the Chapel lost its unfinished appearance and became the pride of the School. Additional windows were added from time to time-in memory of the Old Boys who died in the South African War, of Mr. Edward Martin, Humphrey Vernon, Dr. William Jones and Mrs. E. B. Osler Cwho died during the worklg the last being put up in memory of Mrs. Rigby, who always greatly loved the Chapel and its services. She had made the care of the altar her special work. Mainly through her efforts the altar curtains were obtained, and the set of altar frontals and coverings for the altar vessels made complete. Two stalls for masters were also erected, and give an idea of what the Chapel will look like, when the whole scheme for the stalls is carried out. I must here mention the interest taken in the work by Mr. Frank Darling, from whose de- signs, and under whose superintendence, freely given, al- most all these improvements have been made. Whilst on the subject of the Chapel my thoughts go back to the services so beautifully rendered by the choir, trained during all my time by Dr. Petry. From time to time we had boys with voices of exceptional quality-for instance, those who heard him will always remember Lindsey Elwood. Those, too, who had the privilege of being present, will never forget our confirmations, and the throng of earnest communicants at the early services the following day. I have known nearly one hundred boys make their Communions at one of these services or at the early Communion at the close of the School year. I re- member on one of these occasions how nearly all the mem- bers of the cricket team, who only got back from a match with R.M.C. at Kingston between 3 and 4 o'clock in the morning, were present at thc Celebration at 8 o'clock. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 65 I9I3-I933 By the Rev. F. Graham Orchard, M.A., D.D. The occasion which gives this number of the Record its special character brings vividly to mind the last great anniversary of the School: its Jubilee in 1915, when con- ditions were very similar to those obtaining now. Then as now, our Empire was at warg then as now we had felt the first effects of warg then as now we had already begun to recover from those effects and were steadily increasing in numbers and efficiency. In our 50th year, we were near enough to the early days of our Foundation to have with us many of those who were at the School in its first term at Weston-Sir William Osler, the first Head Boy, Dr. A. Jukes Johnson. number one on the School Register: E. Douglas Armour: Frank Darling, and others whose names are still remem- bered, not only as loyal and devoted sons of the School, but also as men of affairs in the country. Each succeed- ing generation produced men of the same calibre: E. Dyce Saunders, Bishop Brent, J. Harry Paterson, Archdeacon Ingles, Henry J. Scott, Lionel Clarke, Sir A. Macdonell-it would seem invidious to mention only a few-"there were giants in those days." These all were with us then, and by their presence they made the celebration unique in Canadian history. With them, too, we had two former headmasters, Dr. Bethune and Dr. Rigby, whose terms of oflice covered 40 of the 50 years of the life of the School. which owed its proud posi- tion then to these two more than to anyone else: yet I know that they would be the first to acknowledge the heavy debt that they and the School owed to their splendid house- masters and assistants, among whom we may mention the Rev. W. Allen, Herbert Broughall, E. Watson, F. C'urry, W. Nightingale, A. Miller, J. F. Morris and Dr. Petry. Forgive me for intruding upon the record of genera- tions earlier than my own, but the celebration of 1915 was 66 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD theirs more than ours, their memories gave that festivity all its colour, all its reality, and we who were then but re- cent recruits became aware of the splendid heritage which was ours to enjoy and to hand on. The years 1913-33 were marked by events of unusual importance: the Great War, the Fireg Our Stay in Wood- stock, Our Return, the Great Depression: and in between these, periods of building, general and special. Our first care was to build a house for the senior master, Dr. Petry, whose long and valuable service called for recognition in this way. The land was purchased and the ground broken a week before war was declared, July, 1914. As we were hard-up at the time, the money was most generously lent without interest by Mr. William Ince and very soon repaid. In 1916 came the purchase of land by Mr. Gordon Osler for the removal of the hospital, which was enlarged and equip- ped by Mrs. J. Harry Paterson in memory of her husband. Then in 1919 the Memorial Cross, given by the Ladies' Guild, under Mrs. Lawrence Baldwin, was dedicated by Dr. Bethune in loving memory of those Old Boys who gave their lives in the Great War. In 1920, as a further Memorial, the Junior School was built with funds raised by a Bond Issue through the splendid initiative of Mr. Larratt Smith and Mr. Britton Osler. The Junior School was founded in January, 1915, with eight boys under Mr. Stanford, and it grew so rapidly that their temporary quarters in the Senior School were overcrowded and they were able to till the new building when it was dedicated by Archbishop Thornloe and opened by Admiral Sims, with the Rev. C. H. Boulden as housemaster and Miss Symonds as "house-mother". The new building soon became overcrowded and the overflow was accommodated meanwhile in the Hospital. From 1915 to 1918 the School field was levelled, large- ly by the boys, under Mr. Stanford and Grace, to both of whom all succeeding generations are indebted. Meanwhile, two new and very necessary activities had come into being. Mr. Stanford founded and trained the TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 67 Choir as never before: the first three parts of Handel's Messiah and Mendelssohn's Hymn of Praise were given very competently by boys of 11 to 18 years, and only the soloists were brought in from outside. Also the first Carol Service was given in Chapel at Christmas, 1916, the first of its kind, I believe, in Canada. Then in 1919 we were most fortunate in having Davidson Ketchum in charge of our music on his return from Germany, and his wonderful enthusiasm raised the standard of musical performance and appreciation to its highest pitch, not only in Chapel, where he extended our repertoire with Bach's Christmas Oratorio, introducing as well the School Hymnal, but also he put on admirable performances of the Trial by Jury and The Pirates of Penzance. In addition, from time to time he gave us many School songs-words and music-which, though largely topical, should be revived. His work and influence in music undoubtedly brought us fame and was carried by the boys themselves out into the world beyond the School. When he left, little further development was made in music till Alan Sly founded the School Orchestra and gave us many brilliant piano recitals. Through the generous gift of a Victrola gramophone and radio by Mrs. Alan Law, the Music Club was able to enjoy the valuable library of records given by the same donor. The second new activity of the School was developed through the appointment of Sergt.-Major Batt, late of R.M.C., as cadet and gymnastic instructor in 1919. Physical drill became a class subject for every boy, and apparatus work was carried on out of class hours with such success that in 1927 the School won 4 out of 5 of the cups for schools at the Military Tournament in Torontog and later our Gym. Eight successfully competed at R.M.C., Kingston, with one of their picked teams. So here again, in physical training, the School took the lead, giving performances in which the whole School took part, at Hart House in To- ronto Ctwicel and at the Armouries in Montreal: and it is gratifying to see our high standard being maintained to- 68 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD day under the same Instructor, who received commissioned rank in 1933. The story of the fire is given in the Record of 1928, but we who went through it remember with gratitude the way in which the Staff and the School faced the appalling disaster and met every emergency with courage, efficiency and steadiness worthy of all praise. Under the Sergeant- Major the boys recovered their belongings, much School property, all the Chapel embroidery, linen, cassocks and surplices lall praise to Jimmy Pricell and that without a single casualty. The iire started at 2.30 p.m. and by 6 p.m. all boys were either on their way home or else housed and cared for by our friends in need and deed, the residents of Port Hope. All these arrangements were assumed and carried out spontaneously by Mr. Geldard, Col. Goodday and Mr. Ogle. The School was given its Easter holiday, and on the twentieth day after the fire, all boys but one, who was leaving anyway, turned up in Woodstock, where McMaster University had given us the use of their old quarters there rent free, but we insisted on paying them a nominal amount. Never shall I forget the friendliness and substantial help which we received from their executive committee. They very generously paid part of the expense incurred in making the building weather-proof, the furnaces and plumbing eflicient, for tenure in winter, as we were still only in the month of March. And here we remained for twenty-Hve months, while the new building arose in Port Hope on the ruins of the old. Our stay in Woodstock was in every way a delightful experience. From the very start we were made to feel at home by the authorities and residents of the town and it was an amazing piece of good fortune to have a building, so well equipped, ready to receive us: Dining Hall, Assembly Room, where we held our Chapel services, Gymnasium, Swimming Bath, Library, Chemical and Physical Labora- tory, eight or ten class rooms, thirty to forty bedrooms, l,- ' 1 I if t, 1" , Qjasfgf f' Q! 1' q W, A, i Q, I.fi".ffEwf 1' , f if! ,1 " W, II. , . -2' ,ff-I I' ,. .F- -1, , Fila -Q " qv . -.. . , A I " ' ' Jw.

The playing fields provided two Football Grounds and Cricket Pitches. So our full staff and the 135 boys of the Senior School were very comfortably off, and everything went very smoothly and happily, be- cause we were a complete unit, compact and loyal to our best traditions, masters and boys alike, thoughtful, con- siderate and helpful: and for this we are indebted to our wonderful staff of masters under the able leadership of the two housemasters, Mr. Geldard and Col. Goodday. How much, too, we owe to Mrs. Shearme, Mrs. Logan, Miss Wood and Miss Saunders for their splendid and unseliish work m their own departments so vital to our welfare. During the whole of our stay in Woodstock, it seem- ed as if we were being carried along on the crest of a wave which landed us safely, happily and in greatly increased numbers back at Port Hope and in our new building on April 30th in time to celebrate our 65th anniversary on May lst., 1930. One matter of interest to the Record, its staff and readers I must recall. Through the skilful and unflagging efforts of Mr. Ogle and Mr. Graham the Record was pub- lished every fortnight during term at Woodstock and printed there in a special size and format. We must con- sider this feat as a most valuable contribution towards our unity and strength throughout one of the great crises in our history. The new building enjoyed by the present generation speaks for itself, but the story of its inception and pro- gress contains many features worthy of note. The fire was on Saturday, March 3rd, and a meeting of the Govern- ing Body was called for Wednesday, March 7th to con- sider plans for the new building, so that the architects might estimate the amount of money necessary and the Finance Committee start its campaign. Notice' of this meet- ing was given only two days before. However, with some valuable help I was able to give a list of requirements in 'IQ TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD accommodation and a skeleton of the outlay of buildings for consideration at that meeting: and the plan evolved then from those requirements, by our architect Mr. C. Barry Cleveland, was essentially the same as was adopted later. Thenceforward the Building Committee took charge, and the Finance Committee with Mr. E. Harcourt Vernon as Secretary began its work. To these two bodies we are indebted for what we enjoy to-day. That the whole enter- prise was so successfully and speedily carried out is due to Mr. Cleveland of the firm of Darling and Pearson, and to his lieutenant, Mr. Screaton, who lived at the School for the last two months of construction, personally supervised every detail, and made it possible for us to receive the Governor General and Lady Willingdon for the opening on May 15th., 1930. Mere words cannot convey our gratitude for the sympathy, co-operation and generous help we re- ceived from one and all--and one very specially, whose advice and support so readily given were indispensable-in an undertaking which for me personally was the most in- teresting and one of the happiest in my life. Schools and nations alike from time to time are faced with sudden, great emergencies and in meeting them they make heroic efforts, drawing upon secret resources of strength which have been stored up faithfully in normal times, and their safety and very existence in times of crisis depend upon the hidden springs of life. Our survival and renewal have made us conscious of this reality: undoubt- edly we were guided and "supported" throughout and the human channels through which we received the "counsel and ghostly strength" we needed were already at hand in the two great Supporters of the School, on either side of us: the Ladies' Guild and the Old Boys' Association. The former has pride of place, naturally and actually, for it has been the guardian of our ideals and aspirations. The mother of all Ladies' Guilds in Canadian schools, so ably led from the infancy of the School by the Presidents in turn, Mrs. Edmund Osler, Mrs. William Ince, Mrs. Lawrence TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 71 Baldwin, Mrs. Cartwright, Mrs. Britton Osler, has played the true woman's part in our life, exerting an influence all the more strong and natural in emergency because it has been steady and consistent in normal times. The Old Boys' Association-personified to me in its Secretary for many years, "Tim" Vernon-has been "The School behind the School": need I say more than that? AN APPRECIATION OF DR. ORCHARD The Headmastership of Dr. Orchard covered an event- ful period in the life of the School, and those of us who were privileged to see his devoted work came very soon to have a great admiration for the tireless way in which he served T.C.S. for twenty years. Coming to Port Hope in 1913 he gave himself whole heartedly to the duties and responsibilities of his new position and dedicated his en- ergetic personality and versatile talents to the maintenance and development of the traditions and life of a school which a.lready possessed an enviable record among the schools of the Dominion. He was a man of strong character and Grm convictions and he saw the School as an institution to develop character and to promote the best interests of its members. He always expected much from boys and masters: but he always expected more from himself. Those who knew the School in his days realised that he was in- terested in all its activities and keenly alive to all its possibilities. As character was of such importance in his eyes, the Chapel was to him the power house par excellence of the School and it was his pride that everything done there should be done in the most worthy manner possible. The music and singing, the reading of the lessons and the ren- dering of the service-so much care and attention were given to these in order that the tribute of worship to God and the effect in the lives of the boys might be of the 72 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD highest quality: and the Chapel and Dr. Orchard in the Chapel are among the happiest memories of the days of his regime. We delight to know that Dr. Orchard and Mrs. Orchard will be present at the celebrations in May and June. They have done much for the School: they have done much for those who were there with them and we delight to bear witness to it. --QC. H. Boulden AN EARLY ANNOUNCEMENT Trinity College SCHOOL!

Among the many Old Boys I must mention are Messrs. Dyce Saunders, who I understand was known as the "Dean of Canadian Cricket", Percy Henderson, Norman Seagram, and not forgetting Rev. Scott Howard, who always showed up at our games at home or away. The enthusiasm of all Old Boys at games is always most gratifying. Amongst previous Old Boys, I must mention the Hrst Cricket Captain it was my pleasure to work with, Ford Strathy, in 1916. D. A. C. Martin and Scotty Howard were two very good bowlers, and they took great interest in the game, also Jimmy Taylor fwicket keeperl and Captain E. S. Clarke Ctwo yearsj, H. Cayley, Once Wilson who bowled lobs very well, Mulholland, Stew Osler, Jock Spragge, C. F. W. Burns, N. O. Seagram, H. T. Biggar, Mac Mullen, J. Irvine, G. Hurtley, D. Wigle, E. Cochrane, C. Seagram, J. W. Kerr, W. Mood and T. Seagram, Some boys will remember that little book "Hints on Cricket"g E. W. Clarke wanted me to write him a few hints on how to give instructions to his team, which I wrote down on paper for him. He was looking at them in the Prefect study, when Mr. Geldard looked in and out of sight they went. "Something interesting eh?" "Yes Sir, you may look." This was the means of the hints getting to the Headmaster, and with my consent, they were put in book- form and became quite popular. Clark was a good captain. and one of the best fielders at point one could wish to watch. At this time S. E. Harper with his 72 against Ridley at U.C.C. ground gave us the championship. The year of H. Cayley as captain, I remember. Luke and Mac- Caul came from J. School into the First Team, and playing against U.C.C. scored 46 runs before lunch, on going in first wicket. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 75 When at Woodstock we had an exciting match with U.C.C. We lost on the first innings. Captain J. D. Thomp- son's 84 won us the match on the second innings. He scored very quickly with some big hits. I remember thc window he broke in building south side of ground. Two cricket balls Went clean through the windows, and we had to get key from the caretaker to retrieve them. This game reminded one of the S.A.C. game last sea- son, with its fast scoring, 132 in just over the hour. To me that is a record and one that will stand for some time. I remember Well that innings of Jackie Warden's of 92. He might have got his century but for that blow on his arm, he made some Wonderful drives, and good left hand "shots" all around the wicket. That was on Toronto Cricket Ground against Ridley College. Also D. Wigle's 108 which was compiled in 1934 against Ridley College, also at Toronto Cricket Ground. He did well in other matches, was a good "Wicket keeper" and good captain. Many will recall our starting a match at Rosedale on pitch which was one yard and a half too long-it was rectified after measuring-and crease remarked. This game was rained out by thunderstorm. This was the Ridley game. I can only remember one accident during my This was Colin Brown, who was hit full pitch on the head one evening at the nets, from Mickle's bowling. ,. QQ Q3 fu4P rv?

Wilkie It is a long time since I was at T.C.S. but I think that "Red and Black" was first published in 1892. L. M. f"Shadow"J Lyon suggested a school paper, and persuaded me to join him in editing it, after permission had been obtained for its publication. I was at that time one of the prefects. The school paper was called "Red and Black", and was printed by a small firm on the main street of Port Hope near the Mechanics' Institute. The reading and correct- ing of the proofs was quite a hard job. Both masters and boys contributed to it. I well remember the day of the first or second fire, when the paper was going to press. After fighting the fire on the Upper Floor, both of us went down to the printer's eventually, and while the type was being set We watched the School from the roof of the building. This, by the way, was an incendiary fire. During the latter part of 1893 I left the School, and do not remember what happened to "Red and Black". I think it was the first School paper of T.C.S. fEa'itor's note: It would be the second fre. The number of "Red and Black" in question has two reports of fires, Ike second being eviderztly added at rfae end as stop-press news., BEFORE 1911 By Mr. F. J. A. Morris When Mr. Collinson left for Hamilton, I was asked to take over a good deal of his work e.g. Secretary's work with the Cricket Club, and Editorship of the "Record". We had at that time none of the boys helping with the Record, though sports articles were frequently con- THE CHAPEL AND HALL, FRONI THE EAST Remains of earlier buildings show in the various brick-work THE JUNIOR SCHOOL H 1 . 1 i 'w n 'Q I -' I wr LABORATORY THE OLD EH-LL .XHOLVHOEIVT AILLSIWHHD HEVISO XXXEIN ,,.. -......--, 4...

It was almost entirely a one-man job as handed over to me. Most of the articles were written by the Editor. And the printing-done by old Mr. Fogarty at William- son's-was supervised by the Editor and all proof reading done by him, from galley proofs to page proofs. One feature of interest that I recall was a section of 2 or 3 pages at the back of each number called "Old Boy News" for "Notes"J. This was compiled by the Editor from a great file of letters that came to Mr. Nightingale from Old Boys. Three or four lines at most to each boy's name made a note. The article proved very popular and I recall a large number of letters that came to me from Old Boys long before my day, telling of themselves and Old Boys they had met, and asking about Old Boys they had lost track of. Mr. Nightingale had always a wonderful faculty for Old Boy reunions and his sitting room at the "tower" end of the lower flat was not only a Common Room for the rest of the staff, but the unfailing resort of Old Boys in their frequent visits to "the old School", their boyhood head- quarters. In my last years at T.C.S., between 1908 and 1911, there was I think a committee of T.C.S. boys who helped with the "Echoes" output. :ll all Si :lk 39 ON THE "RECORD" 11911-16D By Professor W. R. P. Bridger Your managing Editor has been kind enough to ask me to write, for your 75th. Anniversary Number. a few notes on my reminiscences while I was. running the "Record". Four years after joining the T.C.S. Staff, I took over, in 1911, the editorship and secretary-treasureih T8 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ship, but these posts were soon divided and I became man- ager and secretary-treasurer and finally manager, until I left the School at Christmas 1916. It was an eventful period in the School's history. At the beginning of it we celebrated the Coronation of King George V and in the Coronation Honours that very distin- guished old boy Dr. William Osler was made a baronet. Also a boy who had recently left the School and joined the Navy was one of the officers representing the Canadian Navy at the Coronation. That boy is now Rear-Admiral P. W. Nelles, Chief of the Naval Staff and Director of the Naval Service. Evidently a martial feeling was abroad at that time in the School, for we filled no less than one quarter of the vacancies at the R.M.C. in 1911 with our old boys, a record, I think, for any school. It was a great year for sports too, with respect to both present and past boys. We Won the football cham- pionship for the third time in four years and our team went through the season unbeaten except by the Old Boys' Team. This defeat was not surprising when We remember that we had that year on the Varsity team, Jack Maynard CCapt.J and Pete Campbellg on McGill team, George Laing fCapt.J, Archie Wilkes, Rigby and Rogers, and on the R.M.C. team, Macaulay CCapt.J, Buck Pearce, and Mallory, all names to conjure with on the football field. T.C.S. Old Boys could at that time have raised a team good enough to lick any college team in the Dominion. 1912 was notable for the bad typhoid epidemic in Port Hope and for the death, the first for many years at the School, of one of the most popular of the younger boys, poor little "Flip" Waller. No one could possibly forget the funeral service in the old Chapel. Our skating rink fcoveredj became a reality that year, through the gen- erosity of the Old Boys. It was a great joy to everyone particularly to those whose duty it had been to keep the open rink clear of snow. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 79 The beginning of 1913 was completely overshadowed by the illness and death of Mrs. Rigby, who did so much for the School and whose memory will always live with those who were privileged to know her. A little later came the retirement of Dr. Rigby after ten years as Head- master of a school which he loved dearly to the end of his days. The fall term saw the beginning of Dr. Orchard's twenty year regime. The School was .honoured by Royalty in 1914 when Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Con- naught and Princess Patricia paid an official visit. The Royal Ladies were presented with bouquets by Masters Robert Orchard and John Bridger. The Duke mentioned the excellent record of the School in the Boer War and how necessary it was to be prepared, little realising how soon the School would be called on to play its part in a much greater war. Indeed it was a very short time after the outbreak of the Great War that we began to hear of cas- ualties among our Old Boys. In the January 1915 Record we had to announce the death of two Old Boys and the internment in Germany of another, and we began to print our "Service Lists" which continued for many issues, and are now starting up again. In spite of the War, on Victoria Day, the School celebrated its 50th. Anniversary with a cricket match and an Old Boys' Dinner. On the preceding day a special service was held in the Chapel at which Dr. Rigby was the preacher and Dr. Bethune fHeadmaster for thirty yearsl read the lesson. From then on the Record was largely made up of Service Lists and the constant announcements of deaths of Old Boys who had so recently been with us. Some of our masters left also, I remember getting a letter from Mr. Aglionby C1913-141, shortly before he was killed on the field of battle, in which he remarked that he would rather lead a charge against the Huns than take evening study at T.C.S. This recalls the really awful "week on duty" the masters had in those days, from 7 a.m. 80 TRINITY OOLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD to 10 p.m. every day, including evening study with the whole school, except the prefects. We were not supposed to leave the building during that time, and when we tried to snatch a moment's rest in the afternoon we were always brought back to mundane affairs by loud yells of "Gates", which meant that We had to go down and open the iron gates at the foot of each staircase, so that the clamorous hordes could go up to their bedrooms. When one pauses to think of these times, what mem- ories do arise, both grave and gay, the plays, the skating parties, the old debating society, the great trek and so on, but I am sure I have already exceeded my space. So I will just say Godspeed and good luck to the "Old School on the Hill" from an old master, a father of two Old Boys and the brother-in-law of another. Q if 1F if i THE RECORD AT WOODSTOCK By. C. F. Harrington Working on the Record, combined with the oflice of Librarian, resulted in certain privileges which were great- ly appreciated in the old School before the fire. As you know, living in that place was rather like life in a vast draught, and there were no decent common-rooms or places to spend what leisure one had during Lent Term, possession of the key to the Library, which was a large cupboard, but which was private and reserved, was listed as an asset by my room-works and myself, and any amount of Tuck was consumed there. I think that Rev. R. S. Tippet had quite a bit to do with the Record at that time, although I can't be certain of it. In any event, his command of "the pungent phrase" was always a source of inspiration and amusement to us. The Record immediately after the Fire was no doubt replete with the greatest story since the first fire, and I remember writing an allegory about the brave knight Sir Tyrinit, whose castle of Hortope rose Phoenix-like from TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 81 the ashes, when it was annotmced that the School would be rebuilt: no doubt Spenser had something to do with this, as the "Faery Queene" was required reading for McGill. William C"Barney"J Ogle, Esq., an erudite and en- ergetic little Scotchman who was well-liked by us all, was editor-in-chief of the Record during our stay in Woodstock, and had much to do with what We considered our success- ful launching of a new Record, which appeared fortnight- ly in a smart maroon cover. I believe this change in policy was undertaken in the hope that by publishing frequently it would be possible to stimulate and maintain interest in the School during the difficult years in the Wilderness of the Bible Belt. Certainly, the Record was never livelier than during this time. The Woodstock Sentinel-Review ran a column on life at T.C.S. for a time. I was supposed to provide the ma- terial, for a consideration, but due no doubt to my inability to approach the standards set by Winchell, and to a natural reticence on the part of the School, this arrangement languished. Of the present staff, Messrs. Lewis, Morris and Morse may remember a rowdy organization known as the "Hogans" which sprang up overnight, due to the bore- dom of early Trinity Term, and flourished for some time after Byers and I, who started the fun, had left the School. I enclose two old pictures which may amuse the above- named gentlemen, and which I would like to have back- from these it is evident that Edgar Wallace and his fellow- writers of "romans policiers" had a great influence on the "gang" Several scenes of mass hooliganism on Saturday nights led to severe reprisals by the masters, and the School was divided into two armed camps, following gen- erally along the lines of the two "Flats", for quite a while. It is doubtful if the natural propensities of the younger male animal to break the peace ever had a better field of action than in the rambling old Woodstock buildings. The place was so spread-out that eflicient policing by the masters, poor men, was most diflicult. Underneath the 82 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD School was a labyrinth of intercommunicating cellars and passages, from which disused chimneys and air-chutes, with iron rungs in them, gave access to the different floors, the attics, and the roof. Added to this, the engineer, who was the overloard of the lower regions, was deiinitely "on our side", so you can well imagine the amount of harmless but forbidden prowling which went on. The "young gentlemen" who occupied the two rooms across the corridor from us invented an indoor sport to which the general dilapidation of the premises lent itself ideally: this game usually occurred at bed time, and con- sisted in two people lying on their backs in adjacent rooms on the beds, which were only separated by the partition Wall between the rooms: at a given signal, the neighbours would strike up an impromptu choir-practice, while the competitors would kick their respective sides of the wall with both feet, in due course their efforts would produce a shower of plaster, and the loser was he upon whom it fell, a report would then be made that the wall had fallen down. fx riff pk 'H' 7 if f 5 J ,I ,if f i .I .xl .'

TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 83 THE CADET CORPS The Trinity College School Cadet Corps has a history of seventy-five years. In Cushing's "Life of Sir William Osler," an old Waterloo veteran named Captain Goodwin is mentioned as being the drill master of the corps in 1866. Exactly fifty Old Boys saw active service in the South Africian War, and four were killed. During the World War 575 Old Boys served in various branches of the Allied forces, and 122 were killed or died of wounds. One Old Boy and one former master were recommended for the V.C., two Old Boys were created K.C.B.'s, three C.B.'s, eleven C.M.G.'sg twenty-four Were decorated with the D.S.O., fifty-two with the M.C., and two with the D.F.C. Several French, Italian, and Russian decorations were Won, and many Old Boys were mentioned in dispatches. Some former members of the Corps had distinguished careers. Sir W. T. Bridges was G.O.C. the Australian Forcesg Sir A. C. Macdonell was in command of the First Canadian Division, and later Commandant at the R.M.C.g the Right Rev. C. H. Brent was senior chaplain of the American Expeditionary Force, Col. Duncan Campbell was O.C. the Third Black Watch, and the first soldier to take his seat in the British House of Commons in uniform, Sir G. M. Kirkpatrick was chief of the General Staff in India, Major Travers Lucas was recommended for the V.C., Brig.-Gen. Duncan Maclnnes had a distinguished record in both the South African and World War, and won the D.S.O., C.M.G., Legion of Honor, and Russian Order of St. Stanislausg Major-Gen. E. M. Morris was in command of the British Army of occupation in Egypt, Major General H. P. Leader was inspector-general of cavalry in India, Capt. J. R. McIlree was in charge of the first trench raid in the war, wirming the D.S.O., Lieut.-Commander Nelles, now in command of the Canadian Navy, was during the war in charge of H.M.S. Antrimg Brig.-Gen. W. F. Swiny was O.C. the 41st Brigade, B.E.F.g Brig.-Gen. V. A. S. 84 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Williams was the oilicer in charge of the Valcartier camp then commanded the 5th Brigade, 2nd Division, C.E.F., and was later G.O.C. Military District No. 3. Major General Sir C. C. Van Straubenzee was G.O.C. the tenth Army Corps, B.E.F. 1916-1917, then Inspector General of the Royal Artillery. During the past fifteen years the School Corps has maintained a remarkably high standard. It has received by guard of honor all the Governors-General during that period, except the late Lord Tweedsmuir, and has been much praised by some of the highest ranking soldiers in the country. "The Little Guard of Canada" was the term one famous general used. ..l ...l-- ,""'-Axafxx ,-'fy-'Z' jfixgf -'J Kvrzagf--XAFI it f' iq, TJ L-.

TO-DAY BOARDING SCHOOL LIFE VVhen Canadian people send their sons away from home to boarding schools the majority of them have made this decision because of some family connection with such schools, or because they feel their son would be much better living and growing up with other companions of his own age, or because, after due consideration, they have come to the conclusion that the life and education offered by such schools was just what they wanted for their off- spring. The beginning of this type of school in England cor- responds with the historical beginning of organized educa- tion in that country for it is recorded that St. Augustine was given "a settled residence in his metropolis of Canter- bury" in the year 598 and there is every reason to sup- pose that one of his first acts was the establishment of a school. There is actual mention of the Canterbury school in the year 631, so these boarding schools in the English pattern have a venerable history going back over Thirteen Hundred years. Before governments in the 19th century made elemen- tary and secondary education available and compulsory for all boys and girls between certain ages, these boarding schools provided the best known means of education for the privileged few who could afford it. No longer are these schools available only to the privileged few, for all of them now offer scholarships and endowed bursaries which can reduce the fees to very little more than it would cost to keep the boy at 'home. Such assistance has been made possible only because men of means have had sufficient faith in these schools to give 92 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD liberally to them of their substance, believing that by so doing many lads would be given a valuable start in life. In Canada to-day the schools which are not controlled by the Government or by a religious body and which are not run for private profit are known as independent schools, because of the magnitude and multitude of our public and high schools, we hear far too little about the contribution which these independent schools are making to our national life. For this reason I venture to say something about a special category of these schools, the independent boys' boarding school. According to the annual survey of education, a most informative booklet published by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, there were in the year 1937 some twenty-two of these boys' boarding schools in Canada, scattered here and there from coast to coast. Their enrolment was, as far as I can judge, some two thousand boys, most of them be- tween the ages of ten and eighteen, and the value of their buildings and equipment was close to ten million dollars. The differences between these boarding schools and the government controlled day schools are many, but two are fimdamental: C19 the boarding schools are private ventures, controlled by Governing Bodies or Boards of Directors, incorporated under the laws of the province, financed by their income from fees and by the generous contributions of their friends, and independent of other ex- ternal authority except matriculation examinations and the approval of those interested in them, task masters which are not easily satisfied. 129 the pupils live at the school twenty-four hours of the day for some nine months of the year, going home for holidays at Christmas, Easter, and in the summer. When a boy leaves home for the first time to go to a boarding school, a turning point has come in his life, for from now on he will be expected to stand on his own feet and to learn how to conduct himself capably in the ordinary HI-LI.

TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 93 affairs of life, accepting more responsibility for his welfare than was necessary before. Perhaps you would like to join a boy at one of these schools and spend an ordinary day with him. Here he is asleep in a room for two when suddenly an electric gong clangs in the corridor outside his door. He turns over, half awake, realizes it is the first bell at 7.15 and decides to enjoy the warmth of his bed a little longer. Soon most of the boys are stirring about, taking showers and dressing. By 7.40 they are on their way to the Hall for Prayers and breakfast, being inspected by a master as they enter. Perhaps one boy is late, if that is the case the Prefect on duty takes note of his name and he is re- quired to go a quarter of a mile around the campus after lunch. After breakfast, beds are made and rooms tidied and then classes begin at 8.30. At this particular school all the boys are following a carefully graduated course of study leading from elementary work to full pass and honour matriculation. After three classes the school assembles outside or in the gymnasium Where the physical training instructor conducts breathing and setting up ex- ercises for fifteen minutes. Then comes a break of fifteen minutes with cocoa and biscuits. For the next half hour we find all the lads study- ing under the supervision of masters, and then follow two more classes before lunch at one o'c1ock. During the winter the boys play games between two and four o'clock, and classes begin again at 4.30 and run until six, but in the spring and autumn, classes are held after lunch until three o'clock and games are played from 3.30 until 5.30. The school is divided into three groups for games and all boys are expected to play unless they are excused on the grounds of physical disability. It is recognized at these independent schools that team games provide a most im- portant and valuable means of developing character and physique. Rugby, soccer, hockey, basketball and cricket 94 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD are the principal team games played, but time is also found for tennis, track, swimming, badminton and squash racquets. After dinner at six o'clock there is a comparatively free period of three quarters of an hour when the board- ing school lad may spend his time reading in the library or his own room, or he may listen to a radio programme, or if he is unpracticed in the intricacies of bar work in the gymnasium one may find him there being coached by Senior boys under the general guidance of the physical training instructor. At 7.15 he attends a short chapel service consisting of a Psalm, a lesson read by the Senior boys, a hymn, and prayers, and at 7.30 he begins his evening study. Bedtime comes at 8.00 o'clock for the youngest lads in the Junior School, and runs through to 10 for the oldest boys of seven- teen, eighteen or nineteen. It is not difiicult for boys at boarding schools to go to bed, for their days have been very full and rest is welcome to them. There are, of course, variations in the time-table. On Wednesdays there are no afternoon classes, and on Satur- days at this particular school classes end at 10.30 and boys may visit the country town to do their shopping between then and lunch time at 1 o'clock. On these half holidays the games with rival schools are played and they provide much interest and excitement. Because of their very nature the independent boys' boarding schools can offer opportunities which are im- possible to most government day schools: they can, for instance, experiment with new ideas of education without transgressing the regulations of a department of educa- tion. It is true that during recent years the curriculum of our government schools has undergone a most valuable reorganization which should have far reaching effects, but most of the new courses just introduced, such as those in music, art, and woodwork, have been given much atten- tion for years in the independent schools. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 95 These schools have also stressed the value of learn- ing how to read good books, for mental and spiritual de- velopment and for pleasurable relaxation, and they have emphasized the importance of practice in the spoken word by guiding their pupils in the production of plays at fre- quent intervals and by organizing debating and public speaking clubs. In music they very often have well trained choirs and sometimes glee clubs and orchestras. But one of their most important contributions to the progress of their students in the regular school curriculum lies in the fact that the numbers in the classes at these in- dependent schools are kept down as a rule to below twenty so that the master has a real opportunity of giving atten- tion to the individual. Then, too, as the boy and the master live in the same school, difliculties can often be cleared up by a short conference out of class hours. Some of these schools have instituted a system which is a very real advantage to the progress of pupils and con- sequently to their general morale. It is called the set system and it consists in running some four classes in the same subject at the same time, thereby permitting a boy to do work of a comparatively high standard in such a sub- ject as French, work of a lower standard in Algebra, and perhaps work of a still lower standard in Latin. In other words the pupil is not held back in one subject because of his Weakness in others. By testing out new ideas in education these inde- pendent schools have often led the way to reform and in- deed this is one of the most important reasons for their continued existence in an age when our government schools are so eiiicient in their own way. Then, too, the physical development of the boy is very carefully planned and supervisedg with regular hours, regu- lar physical training classes, and regular games in the open air, it is rare that the physique of the lad does not develop in a remarkable way. 96 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD At these schools it is considered important that every boy should have instruction in religious knowledge and learn to know something about his Bible and the meaning of religion. Regular chapel services give the opportunity for worship, which is such an essential part of the develop- ment of the spirit and of the full man. The great value of the boarding schools lies in their socializing influence, for they are communities in miniature, and because the members of the community have lived in widely separated parts of the world and in most provinces of Canada, and have the usually found differences of per- sonality, there is always at work among the members of these societies a development of character which leads to the acquisition of tolerance, of understanding, and finally of a true sense of values. I have ventured to speak on this subject because deep down in our hearts we must all have sometime a vital in- terest in schools if we have any thought for the future of the race. A school is the principal medium we use for handing on our heritage to those who come after us, and as we wish to see the young given every possible oppor- tunity to make the best of their lives, so we must wish to see our schools adequate to provide these opportunities. For some years there has been a gradual decrease in the numbers and influence of the family, we live in a world which can be too easily influenced, for we have seen that the press, the radio, the moving pictures can mould opinion almost overnight because the crowd tends to be passively minded not actively minded. The school, therefore, be- comes increasingly important as a kind of clearing house of ideas and a stabilizing influence in the life of the young. providing a sheet anchor in a sea of loose thinking and loose acting. . It is just this combination of stimulation and restraint, rare nowadays, which makes the independent boarding school such an important institution in our modern society. The day school has not the same chance of vitally influenc- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 97 ing a boy's character because it has not the same oppor- tunity for personal contacts, and firm guidance, nor does tradition and public opinion play quite as important a part as at a boarding school. What our youth must acquire if the race is to survive and progress is first an inner discipline, socializing the animal instincts, and second a vigorous, searching, imagina- tive mind, both summed up in the late Sir Arthur Currie's words, "a self-forgetful sense of corporate responsibility". Because of the recent developments in Europe it is vitally important that our youth should try to understand the problems troubling the race and prepare themselves to meet them. "Constancy of purpose is fundamental to suc- cess" said Lord Beaconsfield and his precept still rings true, the purpose we must try to inspire in our youth is that of a better world order, and it would seem reasonable to suggest that the seed can be sown most profitably in a society of youths living together and therefore very much concerned with their own order. Cln this connection I should like to see our country institute without delay a minister of post war development for I believe such a move would give increased hope and confidence to many of us, especially our youth.J I am personally so convinced of the value of these schools that I should like to see our provincial governments establish some schools of this type for boys and girls who have proved their Worth at high schools. They would be given about a two year training in such subjects as English, History and French but the emphasis would be on demo- cratic government and citizenship, and much of the value of the course would depend on the opportunities for in- formal discussion and on the organization of the extra curricular activities. If such a development could con- ceivably take place it would provide a back log of in- telligence, understanding, and fair dealing on Which all our governments could rely, and which should provide leader- 98 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ship and bring added honour and dignity to the public life of this country. In this necessarily brief survey I have tried to show why I believe the contribution of the boarding schools to our national life can be as valuable in the future as it has been in the past.

But, since the disastrous fire of 1928, our Chapel has been a temporary one, and, while serving the purpose well enough, it is not really adequate, having been designed in the original plans as the School Reading Room and Library. Circumstances, unforeseen when the present build- ings were constructed, have denied us this rightful heritage. It is to be hoped that long before the School celebrates its centenary it will have completed its buildings and erect- ed a Chapel second to none among the schools of the Dominion. The hours of the services in Chapel were somewhat changed seven years ago. Mattins on Sunday is now at ten o'clock and Evensong, with a sermon, at five-fifteen. The sermon is often preached by a visiting clergyman. There is an early celebration of the Holy Communion on Sundays and Saints' Days, and a choral Celebration, in place of Mattins, on the first Sunday of the month. There is a short service in Chapel every evening at a quarter past seven. Prayers are read each morning in the Hall before breakfast. A number of special services mark the school year. In Michaelmas Term there is our Harvest Festival, a service in observance of National Thanksgiving Day, the Armistice Service in November, and the Christmas Carol service on TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL EIIICORD Q9 the last Sunday of term. Lent Term is marked by the Confirmation Service on the evening before Palm Sunday, and, in some years, by special Lenten mission services con- ducted by a visiting missioner. In Trinity Term there is the observance of Founder's Day, the Memorial Service on Trinity Sunday, and the Speech Day service which marks the end of the school year. In the matter of instruction in religious knowledge, classes are held throughout the year in both the .Junior and Senior Schools. With the exception of Senior matric- ulation forms, all forms have two periods a week. A graded course of studies beginning in the Junior School includes: stories from the Old and New Testaments, an in- troduction to the history of Israel, an introduction to the Gospels, a study of the Acts of the Apostles, a course on the history and composition of the Bible, an introduction to Church History, a more detailed study of the Gospels, and an introduction to comparative religion. The Church Catechism and other more definite Church of England teaching is given in the confirmation classes which are held during the Lent Term. -H. N. Taylor. - 100 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE LIBRARY 1. Reading Room 6.30 p.m. CC'A-hh!!! "After you on that section." To any T.C.S. boy, this brilliant conversation is an evening custom, and marks the arrival of the Globe and Mail in the Library. If it is Monday, there is also a new edition of the New York Times, and a familiar figure will appear, usually about the time curtains are drawn, only to disappear behind its pages. The most popular section is the News of the Week, but the Magazine and Sporting sections receive a good share of attention. Some moments of quiet, and then perhaps a subdued voice: "I have to read a French book. Are there any decent ones?" After some cogitation Cthere are about forty re- cently added books from which to choosel, it is probable that "Les Trois Mousquetairesn will be on its way, or per- haps, "Madame Therese" or "Jean Va1jean". A potential debater can be easily spotted by his frown of deep thought, and the volumes of reference Works that gather around him, or the manilla folders of press-clip- pings. A new boy momentarily breaks the peace, returning a prefect's book and, with the air of a good day's work done, selects a magazine and an easy chair. His choice may be Canadian Aviation or the Canadian Geographic. Newsweek is at present very well read, and the latest addi- tion to our magazine shelves, Science Digest, is increasing- ly popular. Punch, London Illustrated, and the Readers' Digest are standing favorites. The next interruption is often a deluge of recently escaped gymnasts, looking for books. "I have to read some poetry. What's the shortest book?" TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 101 "A good mystery story ..... " "Something for Supplementary Reading . . . lots of adventure ..... " And the evening is incomplete without the visit of at least one constant reader, who may return Wodchouse and take out Dickens, or vary his mental diet with "Pil- grims of the Wild" or H1066 and All That". A typical evening's list of books checked out will in- cl-ue: "Beau Geste", 'fAircraft and the Air", "Thank You, Jeeves", "Mr, Standfastn, "Chronicles of Canada", "Kim", "Tonight at 8.30", 'iMurder in Trinidad", "Quentin Dur- ward", and "Spy". CWhen such evening lists are totalled, We find that about 1500 books have been taken out during a school year, or about fifteen per Senior School boyl. The five minute bell for Chapel rings, and for another minute there is deep silence. Still another, and the room is miraculously deserted. Oh! We nearly forgot the Hgure behind the Times, who now makes a dash for it-we hope he isn't late! 2. Behind the Scenes Next door to the Reading Room is a smaller room, called the "Stack Room". One Wall is covered with shelves, filled with books Waiting to be catalogued, some are the most recent purchases or gifts, some are older books which have had to Wait while more important and more useful ones have been prepared for the shelves in the ,Reading Room. The Library consists of about 5,000 volumes, of which some four thousand are now available for circulation. At the end of the room is the typewriter table where, in the past three years, nearly 20,000 catalogue cards have been typed. It is now possible, by consulting the card- catalogue, to find out what material is available in the Library on any given subject. The left Wall is occupied by cabinets and Work tables. Here a new book, once catalogued, is made ready for the shelves. Book-plate, accession number, card-pocket, 102 TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL REcoRD charging card, date slip, and number tag are inserted. Here also books are repaired, several hundred each year. The repairs range from tipping in a loose page to rebuilding a book completely. And here the daily newspaper is re- duced from twenty pages to the few essential items which will go into the files. In the cabinet drawers will be found our vital records. The "accession" books give evidence of our effort to keep abreast of the times in the various fields of knowledge and to supply lighter reading for moments of relaxation. Texts and reference works in English and History form the largest sections among the weightier works, and we feel that we have built up as good a collection in this respect as can be found in any school of this size. At the same time, we try not to miss a good novel or a well-written detective story, because many students acquire the habit of reading from such books. The accession records give evidence also of the many sources from which our books come. There is, of course, a regular yearly appropriation from the School, but it would be impossible to carry on as we do now without the many contributions from those interested in the work of the Library. The backbone of the Library built up since the 1928 fire was formed by the books purchased from the Miller Fund. These form a permanent collection, with an income thoughtfully provided for repairs and replacements. A large number of volumes were sent to us by Dr. W. W. Francis from the Sir William Osler library. It seems very appropriate that these books, which belonged to our first Head Boy should find a place at his School. Three years ago, the Carnegie Foundation gave us a collection of books on Art, and of reproductions of masterpieces, which was important enough to warrant the creation, with the aid of the Ladies' Guild, of the Carnegie Room. Through thc generosity of these and many other friends, we are adding about 350 books a year. The walls of the Reading Room are now completely covered with shelves and it will not be long before we shall feel some- what cramped ir1 our present quarters. -R, G. S. Maier. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 103 THE RECORD There seems to have been no regularly produced mag- azine at T.C.S. before 1892, when publication of "Red and Black" began. This paper was meant to appear six times a year, but apparently never achieved that ambition. It came out at rather irregular intervals for a couple of years and then ceased. That is a matter for regret, for it was a Well edited little paper. Its editors made history in school journalism on one occasion when they succeeded in getting reports of two separate fires at the School into one number, as recorded by Major Wilkie elsewhere in this issue. The Record itself Hrst appeared in 1898 and publica- tion has been maintained ever since. A copy of the first number in the bound file is marked "The First Number ever made up, February 25th, 1898. 6.55 p.m. E.M.W." The initials indicate Mr. Watson, who Was Editor-in-Chief. Mr. Nightingale was Manager and Treasurer, with H. Wotherspoon and F. W. B. Ridout as assistants. The Rev. G. H. Broughall was Secretary, with G. R. Hindes and C. E. Duggan as his assistants. That first number set forth the aims of the publication in these Words: "As the name implies, it will be the Record of the Schoolg not only of all that takes place within her Walls and playground, but of the doings and careers of that larger and ever-increasing body, Who are just as much a part of the School, the Old Boys." For more than forty years the magazine has performed that duty. Add the provision of a medium for literary and artistic expression for boys whose interests lie in those directions, and the original statement still describes the purpose of the Record. Publication was originally six times a year, but about 1910 it Was reduced to three. During the Woodstock period a fortnightly Record was issued, but, the old style of one magazine a term was restored on returning to Port Hope. At the beginning of Mr. Ketchum's Headmaster- 104 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ship in 1933, the Record went back to its original plan of six numbers a year, and this has been maintained. The managing editor is often reminded of a saying current in the trenches in the last war: "Cheer up, mate, they say the first seven years is always the 'ardest!" The Record to-day is mainly produced by boys, at least in the main section dealing with the Senior School. One boy acts as Editor-in-Chief, with the arduous double duty of writing editorials, articles and literary contributions himself, and constantly chasing his assistants for the rest of the material. In the last eight years, for which I can speak, there has fortunately been a succession of first class embryo journalists to tackle this difficult work. The principal assistants, appointed on a basis of suc- cessful experience as "reporters", look after various de- partments, such as games, school news, literary contribu- tions. Their job is to write some of the reports themselves and regularly assign their "staff" to cover the vast num- ber of events to be reported. It would not be tactful to reveal how many reports are written, not on the evening after the big game, but three weeks later, half an hour before the final deadline. After the reports, stories, articles, poems and other items have been sifted by the Editor, they are further re- vised by the master in charge, and finally by the Head- master. Junior School material is sent in by the J.S. Housemaster. The pages of Old Boys' Notes are put to- gether by the Secretary of the Association and the Head- master as they gather items of interest concerning Old Boys. In addition to their writing work, the boys on the Record do all the addressing of envelopes for sending out each issue to Old Boys, and others who receive the mag- azine. As this mean addressing about 750 envelopes twice a term, the dozen boys concerned earn the "Choir Half" allowed them three times a year. -D. Kermode Parr TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 105 CURRENT AFFAIRS CLUB This club meets weekly, between supper and the letter- writing period on Sunday evenings. The master in charge outlines the week's happenings or the background of a par- ticular situation, in a brief talk, which is followed by a question and discussion period. A special international affairs reference shelf is kept in the Library for books and booklets on foreign affairs, and the New York Times Weekly is subscribed to for a weekly commentary on world happenings. An Old Boy also kindly sends us his back numbers of Stephen King- Hall Letters, for reference purposes. Since its formation four or five years ago, the Current Affairs Club has not been heard to complain of lack of ma- terial for discussion. l-...TT -E. W. Morse. DEBATING During the winter, short weekly debates are held on Friday evenings, from 8.30 to 9.30, in the Hall. Every boy in the Sixth and Fifth Forms is expected to take part in at least one debate. A Debating Club Committee is elected by the boys to assist in selection of resolutions, these embrace a variety of subjects in the political, social, and less serious fields, as well as problems that confront boys in the School. Debates are held in parliamentary style, and the master in charge takes the speaker's chair. Four main speeches are followed by impromptu speeches from the floor. Each year some special debate is featured, the year before last it was a masters' debate, last year there were two inter-school debates, with U.C.C. and Lakefield. This year, on the last night of term, a political debate was held on the coming federal election issues, with candidates, or their representatives, from the local federal riding present to speak from the floor. -E. W. Morse. 106 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE DRAMATIC CLUB Plays have been produced at T.C.S. practically since its foundation, for Dr. A. Jukes Johnson records an enter- tainment given by the boys at Weston, in which a farce known as "Slasher and Crasher" was followed by one or two scenes from Shakespeare. In recent years it has been our custom to have two dramatic entertainments in each school year: the "Christ- mas Show" and the School Play some time in the spring. Until last Christmas the greater part of the first entertain- ment was always provided by conscripted New Boys, with perhaps a one-act play added by a Fourth Form group or a few seasoned actors of the Dramatic Club, but in 1939 the Second Year boys produced the Whole variety show. The Dramatic Club is not an organised society, but consists of those who get together, urged by their enjoy- ment of acting, to "put on a play." Rehearsals are gen- erally spread from December to April, beginning with one a week and achieving a crescendo to the last week, when almost every moment not spent in class or study is devoted to preparing for the great night. It is usually at the be- ginning of this final week that the actors really get down to the work of learning their lines! Generally the choice is a modern comedy, though a couple of years ago Shakespeare's Twelfth Night was well produced in the Elizabethan style of staging. In the last eight or ten years the repertoire has included Tons of Money, The Dover Road, Captain Applejack, The Middle Watch and It Pays to Advertise, as well as many one-act productions. Last year there was a two-night bill, with the Gilbert and Sullivan "Cox and Box" and a Junior School performance of General Wolfe as well as the main play. Last year, also, an old custom was revived when sev- eral masters' wives brought a greater naturalness to the feminine roles. Some Old Boys may remember that Mrs. TRHNTITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 107 Collinson, and perhaps others, used to take a prominent part in T.C.S. dramatic entertainments. The most serious deficiency in the present buildings is the lack of any auditorium. A canvas fit-up theatre has been devised for use in the gymnasium, with the boxing ring as its stage, and on most occasions this is used. Its advantages, compared with the hall we sometimes hire in the town, are that it has more adequate room backstage. saves much time in keeping the rehearsals on the premises, and enables us to give the performance in our own home. The serious disadvantages are that the willing stage-hands who put it up have rather too heavy a job to accomplish often, that it is only possible to erect it about two weeks in the year without excessive interference with the proper use of the gymnasium, and that the acoustics of the place are very bad. In spite of this difficulty in staging, enthusiasm and energy make dramatic production an important part of the Schoo1's extra-curricular activities. One full-length play, three or four one-act plays and a number of minor items every year constitute a vigorous programme for a school of this size. A few boys, like Hugh Henderson, have gone on from their first stage experiences here to Win distinction on the boards elsewhere. Many have come to know the fun to be found in amateur acting, and thus acquired a permanent source of culture and recreation. Many more have discovered the possibilities of enjoyment in cheerfully toiling behind the scenes for the success of a social activity. These boys who take part in acting, stage-carpentry, scene-painting and all the work that goes to make a per- formance, will tell you that they do it to qualify for a "Choir" extra holiday. Forty hours of extra work to earn freedom from two forty-minute classes! It is such arithme- tic that is the basis of all human progress. - -D. Kermode Parr - 103 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD FEEDING A SCHOOL If a nation's wealth is a nation's health, as we so fre- quently hear, surely a great responsibility lies with schools of this type where thousands of boys spend nine months of the year during the most formative period of their lives. At any age our attitude and outlook on life is iniiuenced by what we eat, this is never more important than during adolescence when life-time habits are being established for future physical, moral, and mental Well-being. After eight years of planning meals, buying supplies, and supervising the cooking and serving, I find myself making last minute changes in order to include more milk, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables, one never has to Worry about meat or sweets if presented in an acceptable dish. Vascular meats as kidney and liver, which have distinctive iiavours, will be eaten with relish if not served oftener than alternate weeks. This type of food is so valuable in the Weekly diet, if suflicient iron is to be included in the daily requirements. There being no limit to the servings of milk and butter at breakfast and lunch, the important minerals and vitamins are not likely to be neglected. It is no credit after years of dealing with a group of boys to know what they like, the danger lies in being afraid of venturing with new dishes-especially when one has been brought up to believe "wilful waste makes woeful want". Only twice during my time at T.C.S. have the boys refused to eat the dishes served. Needless to say it was during my first few months at the School, and the dishes were not included again. It is not every dietitian's privilege to have a kitchen generously supplied with natural light, all electric and steam pressure equipment of the best type, plus an en- gineering department always willing and prompt in keep- ing it in good running order. The refrigerator is not adequate but no new building is perfect and there is much to compensate for this drawback. We have a light airy TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 109 staff dining-room and ample storage space. One room for chinag another for cleaning supplies: two for foodg a small one for fresh fruit and bread, and a large one well- equipped with shelves for canned fruit and vegetables, which are purchased sufficient for each term at the be- ginning of these periods. Other staple supplies such as sugar, Hour, cereals, biscuits, etc., are stored in this room and bought monthly. Exceptions are cocoa, which comes in a three hundred pound barrel suiiicient for the year. maple syrup that comes direct from the eastern townships at the end of the current season, and honey purchased locally three times a year. During my early years at the School meat came in once a week. Now Swifts and Canada Packers deliver daily, which makes the menu planning more adjustable as it is always drawn up a week in advance. If readers could appreciate the uncertainty of visiting teams during the rugby, hockey and cricket seasons, they would understand the importance of that word adjustable. I often feel a dietitian must be as clever as the conjuror with the hat, only the boys would not like the rabbit. There are always special days that have a definite at- mosphere not included in weekly routine, such as the Christ- mas supper, the dance, Inspection Day, and Speech Day. These mean a great deal of extra work, as no catering is done outside the School, but with a co-operative staff and many willing shoulders the wheel makes easy turning. The Christmas party is the high light of the year to me, prob- ably for different reasons to many of the boys. It is the end of a strenuous term and for some the return home after their first experience of boarding school. When a parent realizes the value of good food habits. and the help they will prove when boys are sent to school to say nothing of benefits derived all their lives, I believe greater interest will be shown in having boys take more pride in eating what is served at home or abroad. Con- sidering that boys come into school during the years 110 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD discipline is least acceptable and have no choice about coming to the Hall three times a day at an appointed hour, one can easily appreciate their anxiety to break the routine without any reflection on the School, or school- food. Before closing what necessarily must be a very brief survey of my department I should say that if the Govern- ment is going to make a public acknowledgment of the co- operation among Canadians in using apples when the ex- port trade was so sadly curtailed, T.C.S. should get "an honourable mention". Lastly, and this point may be de- batable as a credit to the dietary arrangements but in my opinion a very creditable record for any school, during my eight years at T.C.S. there has never been a criticism in regard to money spent for food. The boys can be assured if they are not getting chicken and ice cream as frequently as they like, they are having more costly foods in other respects. Meals in terms of minerals, vitamins, proteins and carbohydrates have as little appeal to me as to the modern boy. -M.

The first step in caring for the health of such a group is to examine them physically with a knowledge of their past medical history. This is done when a boy enters the School and a record is kept of the findings. The examination stresses the general physical state of the boy, taking into account his age, height, weight, muscular and glandular development as compared with the standard average. The condition of the eyes, ears, nose, throat, teeth, and heart is of prime importance. Such a procedure including as it does examination of the chest, abdomen, and bone structure gives a very satisfactory picture of the physical equipment of the boy. The medical history is largely obtained from facts supplied by the parents, but supplemented by letters from the family Physician. In all cases the name and address of the family Physician are recorded for future reference. It is desirable to know what communicable diseases have been encountered or immunized against. The use of such information is of the greatest help in controlling such epidemics as can occur in a School. In addition it is neces- sary to know family tendencies and individual idiosyn- crasies. T The picture of the individual is now fairly complete and recommendations are made where necessary to im- prove the posture and weight. Participation in games or the avoidance of certain types of exercise are noted and the information passed on to those in authority. Where obvious defects are noted, parents are advised. Usually these are relatively simple matters, such as requesting a thorough check of the vision, or the recommendation that a nose and throat specialist be consulted. Very occasion- ally something of a more severe nature is encountered in 112 TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD an early stage when prompt measures of treatment by the physician or surgeon of the parents' choice is recommend- ed. It is not the province nor the desire of the School authorities to undertake treatment of a defect which can more properly be done away from the School. To ensure the maximum development and physical fitness of a group of growing boys, preventative measures against illness and accident play a large part in the pro- gramme. The minor individual defects having been noted, games are carefully supervised, and where participa- tion in any sport may seem to be working adversely, suit- able changes are made. By such means in all sports and by careful training in the more rugged contact games, such as football, serious accidents would seem to be minimized. Normally healthy people resent pampering measures in the avoidance of illness, and growing boys quite pro- perly object violently to coddling. Great stress is there- fore laid upon a good state of physical fitness as being the best preventative against ordinary ailments. Contact with existing communicable disease, in this or an outside com- munity, is avoided as far as possible. Within the School locality this can be rather rigidly enforced, but unrestricted holidays in affected areas can result in the introduction of such diseases into a School. The School Health Certificate is an endeavour to secure knowledge of possible contacts, and the attitude of parents to the provisions of that Certi- ficate is most highly commended and greatly appreciated. In the event of an outbreak of any of the so-called childhood diseases or the return to School of a suspicious contact, isolation immediately becomes the rule. This is not only for the individual concerned, but also for those of his immediate group who may be expected to acquire the disease. Very occasionally most stringent measures have to be adopted, as in the province-wide outbreak of Poliomyelitis in the autumn of 1937. On that occasion the entire School was divided into small groups and though taxing the accommodation to the limit these groups were TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 113 kept isolated and measures instituted for immediate action should that dread disease make its appearance. We were extremely fortunate in that the only case which did de- velop was of a mild nature, occurring in a boy whose home was in the town. The handling of ordinary ailments within the School is undertaken on the principle that early treatment will minimize the effects of such conditions as the common cold and its associated complications of infected ears, bronchitis, and occasionally pneumonia. Routine procedure begins in the dispensaries in the Junior School and the School Hospital where boys report for minor ailments. From such a clearing-station, the very minor conditions are treated and disposition made concerning others which might develop into more serious difliculties. It has been found that early hospitalization of an over-tired boy with a beginning nose cold is of great value. Not only does a day or two in bed under the very competent supervision of either of the School Nurses tend to clear up the condi- tion quickly, but it does avoid the incidence of complica- tions and serve to protect others in the School. The function of the School Hospital and the Innrmary in the Junior School is that of treatment for ordinary ail- ments. They are not intended to assume the role of the general hospital. Fortunately the vast majority of such illnesses as are encountered can be adequately dealt with in this marmer. Occasionally it has been found advisable to remove a boy to the Well-equipped Town Hospital as a matter of protection to others, or in case of accidents for the use of the X-ray. We are most fortunate in having available not only the facilities of this fifty-bed institution, but also the use of newly installed X-ray equipment. The X-ray service includes the interpretation of the films by a recognized Radiologist from Toronto. The function of the School Physician- is that of a diagnostician and a therapist for those ailments which come under the classification of general medical or surgical 114 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD practice. Where conditions may unfortunately arise re- quiring the services of a competent specialist, the avail- ability of a wide choice in nearby Toronto is of the utmost benefit. Such procedures are of course only undertaken after consultation with the family and the family's Physician. In attempting to portray the problem of caring for the health of boys in a Boarding School, it is hoped that the procedures outlined for the continued well-being of the in- dividual and the group as a whole, together with the pre- ventative measures instituted and the modus operandi for the care of the unfortunate ailing will somewhat clarify a subject which at times may be taken for granted. -R. P. Vivian. ATHLETICS Is physical education an education of the physical, or is physical education an education through the physical? These are the two points of view, two emphases, two ways of looking at physical education. Education of the physical is very familiar. Its sup- porters are those who regard strong muscles and firm ligaments as the main outcomes. This of course is purely physical culture and has the same value that all narrow disciplines have had in the world. Modern physical education aims higher than health and strong muscles. Education for life or modern educa- tion, and education through the physical or modern physical education have mutual supports and must be closely related. From the point of View of an educational institution, winning should be no more signiiicant than losing. One certainly should play to win as one would work to win an argument, a contract or a place in the world. The idea of winning at all costs develops egocentric, sentimental and vain characters void of a value of real worth, excell- ence in performance and self-respect. TRINTTY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 115 The only justification for athletics in an educational institution is to make desirable changes in habits, skills and attitudes of young people. The athletic programme at Trinity College School has been considerably enlarged of late. In the past, the em- phasis on a few sports to the exclusion of the many was due to their public appeal or tradition. The list has been increased simply because greater education value can now be claimed. ' In the fall, the whole School plays Football, yet time is found for organized tennis, organized soccer and golf. Throughout the winter, the greater part of the School plays hockey, twenty-five to thirty boys turn out for basketballg squash has its regular daily adherents aside from those hockey and basketball players who make spasmodic appearancesg the "Gym Eight" attracts a group of thirty boys who voluntarily turn out for daily instruc- tion: skiing is enjoyed on half-holidays and week-ends on near by hillsg swimming ha.s its devotees and Inter-House meets are held. Cricket, of course holds sway in the summer term and the greater part of the School enjoys the game. A small group however does make use of the School's four ex- cellent tennis courtsg track is sponsoredg softball games are organized and swimming is continued. -G. H. Dixon. 1- , m y-sl .ff ,lt at -J , up 2 ,' 'f.-l"l l f r 0' Q 116 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD FOOTBALL Football is undoubtedly the game dearest to the heart of the school boy. The innate desire of every boy to be rugged plus the national prominence this game has received via the radio and the newspaper, combine to make football the game of the year. Football at T.C.S. is enjoyed by all. The traditional Bigside, Middleside and Littleside teams naturally claim the spotlight. However, those boys who do not gain a place on these squads take part in an intramural league. Such a league serves a two-fold purpose. Primarily, it provides a further opportunity, aside from the Bigside, Middleside and Littleside teams, for a boy to play on a squad with his fellows and thereby reap the benefits of all that goes with team games. He now has a definite place in the athletic world of the School. Secondarily, it is a proving ground for the inexperienced. The importance of this factor need not be stressed. "Bigside" naturally is the goal of every T.C.S. foot- baller. Matches with the other "Little Big Four" schools are played annually. Lakefield Preparatory School is usually on the schedule and several so-called "tune up" games are often arranged with nearby Collegiates and High Schools. The standard of football as now played by the Little Big Four schools is very high. In the past, the qualifications for a schoolboy foot- baller were mainly bulk and speed, and, if possible, a com- bination of each. To-day, the football player has to know how to "block", but more important still-exactly when to "block". If he is an "outside wing" he must be an actor as well as being nimble of foot and sure of hand. He must out-think and out-wit the defense if he is to complete the very important forward pass. So it goes for every position on the team. Your footballer of to-day must be able to think, and TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 117 do so quickly. He must be able to co-operate. He must always give of his best. It is our object so to train the boys that these qualities are brought out and developed. That this training has not been for naught is clearly shown by the number of Old Boys continuing on with the game at the University. At McGill University, for example, ive members of the Freshman Team, two of the Interme- diate Team and three of the Senior Team of last year were taught the fundamentals of football at T.C.S. -G. H. Dixon. HOCKEY With a record of four wins, four losses, and one game tied, this year's hockey team may be congratulated on giving a very good account of itself. Though the new material showed excellent promise during the pre-Christ- mas workouts at Oshawa, it took time to recover from the loss of all of last year's defense players and three of our most effective forwards. The result of these losses is re- flected in the fact that three games were lost in the first four played, while only one game was lost in the remain- ing five. Most encouraging is the prospect of having back again next year a sound nucleus from this year's team. One of the most important factors affecting our hockey is of course the weather. A glance through the hockey records for the last few years reveals that at frequent in- tervals games have had to be postponed or even cancelled owing to this decisive factor. While the town rink provides us with the only available facilities for practice and games at present, it is far from satisfactory. On mild winter days and particularly towards the end of the season, its lack of proper insulation results in bad ice which is hard on the morale of a fast team. During a cold-winter. such as we have just had, the distance which the players have to walk after a strenuous practice, is sometimes a real 118 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD hardship. This year in particular, when the ice was at its best, we were compelled to postpone one game on this account. Changes in the game itself during the last few years have also had their effect on us. A few years ago, before forward passing had been introduced into the game, it was possible to play any school team on fairly even terms de- spite the size of the ice surface. Now differences in the sme of rinks in some instances are so great that an entire- ly different technique of play is required to meet teams accustomed to practice on large ice surfaces. It is obviously impossible to develop that technique on a small rink, nor would it be advisable, since the majority of our games are played on rinks similar to our own. This factor of size alone, however, is of sufficient importance to account for the relatively poor showing that our teams have made when playing in a large arena with artificial ice. Even more dependent on weather conditions than big- side are our intermediate and junior teams which practice almost entirely on uncovered rinks. An enthusiastic and talented group on middleside this year, favored by good ice, completed the season with a very creditable record. Littleside also made a very creditable showing, revealing several players of considerable promise. As in football this year, all boys, excluding Bigside, were divided into teams forming a league which played through an organized schedule of games. After the Middleside and Littleside teams were chosen, the league was reorganized and intramural games continued for the rest of the reason, allowing enthusiastic but not-too-pro- ficient players to gain valuable experience. -A. H. Humble. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 119 BASKETBALL Basketball is one of the few team games for boys that places the emphasis on body control and neatness of execution. There is no place on the basketball court for the awkward and clumsy boy and the lad who does play this game soon reaps the benefits. The rules of the game are clearly set down in such a way that brute strength is replaced by muscular control. exact precision of movement and a degree of team play that no other sport approximates. If any one factor might be stressed as being the most important part of the game, then team play would neces- sarily be mentioned first. Offensively and defensively, the strength of a basketball team lies in the ability of its live members to work together. This factor alone, particularly from an educational view point, more than justifies the popularity of the game. Early records show that the first basketball team formed at T.C.S. played home and home games with the Peterborough Y.M.C.A. as far back as 1911. To-day some twenty to twenty-five boys turn out for basketball early in January and practise and play games until late in March. This group is divided into two squads, daily drills are held With matches being played on Wednesday and Saturdays. The schedule of games for the Senior team usually includes home-and-home games with St. Andrew's College. Upper Canada College, Pickering College and the Royal Military College. To these eight matches are added several with nearby Collegiates and High Schools. The Junior team schedule is shorter than that of the Senior squad, nevertheless the value of this team is very real as herein lies the original training. O -G. H. Dixon. i 120 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD CRICKET There have been few changes in Cricket as played at T.C.S. for many years. Still the chief obstacle is time. Rarely is it possible to do much before the middle of April and even then it is often too cold or wet to get outside. The last games are played around the 10th of Jime. This gives a possible time of about eight weeks but allowance must be made for rainy days, for Cadet Corps inspection and training parades, for "Sports Day" and preliminary heats. Also it must be remembered that final Matric. exam- inations do require some preparation.. The time table for Bigside cricket is approximately summarized as follows. Nets or time batting practice on Monday, Tuesday, Thurs- day for one hour. Games on Wednesday and Saturday. Friday, usually no cricket. Fielding practice after supper when possible. Middleside and Littleside get rather less time. Without the aid of actual figures it is impossible to be certain, but it is doubtful if the average member of Bigside gets move than one hour of batting practice a week, or more than six hours during the term. In six hours one might learn to drive a golf ball quite well. The golf ball is stationary when hit, the cricket ball moving, and this makes an enormous difference. If the cricket ball was always bowled in exactly the same way it would be fairly easy. But the good bowler, aided by a good captain, takes care that there is variety to puzzle the batsman. Hence the batsman has not only to learn how to hit different kinds of bowling, but also. in the short time the ball takes to come to him, he has to settle what sort of a shot to play. All things considered it is amazing how well many of the boys play. Two new developments have affected cricket at T.C.S. in recent years. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 121 Cricket tours to England of Canadian school boys started three or four years ago and several boys from T.C.S. were lucky enough to be able to go. If these tours have to be discontinued for the duration of the war, it is to be hoped they can be started up again when it is over. The value of them is too obvious to require elaboration. During the last two seasons we had help from two Old Boys, CJ. Kerr and Campbell Oslerl, who came to the School for part of May and June. Very material assistance in coaching and encouraging cricket throughout the School was rendered and it is to be hoped that this sort of help will be forthcoming in future years. This is the 75th anniversary of the School and perhaps we can most appropriately end this short note by paying tribute to some of the Schoo1's notable cricketers such as Dyce Saunders, Norman Seagram, Percy Henderson, "Dusty" Rhodes, the Conyers brothers, Crauford Martin and many othersg also to one who has contributed much to this part of the life at T.C.S. for almost one third of these seventy-five years. Arthur Grace came to T.C.S. in 1916. He has been largely responsible for the making of the playing fields as we know them. He has been untiring in his efforts to .encourage and improve the cricket. There must be many Old Boys who owe a good deal of their philosophy and way of life to their contacts with one who has shown them what is and what is not "cricket". -P. H. Lewis ' ggi 'li ,ifif if 'fat."".1' f s. 1" is lkfalfl- 122 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD SQUASH The Iirst reference to "Squash Racquets" at T.C.S. in the "Record" is in the August number, 1925. Here We find a note that enquiries had been made regarding the cost of putting up three courts on the east side of the gymnasium. Owing to business conditions and the ex- penditure due to the Junior School building, it was decided not to press the matter at that time. The note was signed by S. Geldard and C. Goodday, to whom must be given much of the credit for making T.C.S. a Squash-playing school. The next reference in the Record is dated December, 1926, and tells us that the courts ftwo in numberl were in use following an exhibition game by J. H. Chipman and Argue Martin. A second note records that a challenge cup had been presented by Charles F. Bullen, While a third tells us that the cost of construction 136754539 had been met by friends of the School. This financial state- ment bears the name of Britton Osler. The game of "Squash" is reported in the April, 1927 issue as having proved "an immense attraction in the Lent term". This statement might have been repeated each year since then, except for the period when the School was at Woodstock. The two original courts were destroyed in the tire but the game was sufficiently fixed as part of the life at T.C.S. to make the inclusion of two more courts in the plans for the present buildings a matter of no debate. As played now, Squash is still quite voluntary and be- tween twenty and thirty boys, as well as three or four masters, play fairly regularly. Matches are sometimes played against junior or "B" teams from clubs in Toronto, and against R.M.C., and the R.C.A.F. at Trenton. Five years ago the invitation tournament was in- stituted and this has now become the first test in the year of leading players from Ontario and Quebec. It has been TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 123 won by Harold Martin, Hubert Martin and Campbell Rad- cliff. Following the leading part played in Canadian Squash by the Martins are many good young players who have graduated from the T.C.S. courts. The Junior Ontario Championship competition was started last year and was won by an Old Boy CC. Seagraml . This year the age limit was put at 19 years and J. W. C. Langmuir CCapt. of this year's School team! reached the final before he was beaten. One year recently the Dominion Championship and all the Provincial Championships were held by T.C.S. Old Boys. While We hope to produce more good players each year, we hope still more that a large percentage of the boys at T.C.S. will come to like to exercise themselves in a game that is played in the sporting and friendly fashion which is characteristic of Squash Racquets. -P. H. Lewis PHYSICAL TRAINING AND CADET CORPS The Gym. Department has in the past ten years or so made great strides in all its branches of work. The Physical Training is of a very high standard, and all boys take part in it in regular classes. We have given a number of displays in Toronto, always well received, and in 1933 the whole School visited Montreal, where we gave a display in the Westmount Armouries which delighted a capacity crowd. The Junior School plays no small part in these displays with their Wall-bar and Beam work and Club-swinging, not forgetting the small boys in their Brain Stimulating Games. Some ive years ago we introduced roller-skating for the J.S. This has now become a regular subject, and the yearly display on roller skates has attracted much favourable comment and applause from spectators who have enjoyed the boys in action. 124 TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD The School has won the Strathcona Trophy, for the best P.T., on several occasions. It is now in our possession, as we have won it for the past two years. Like the P.T., boxing has improved. In the early 1920's, boys only received boxing lessons if they paid the instructor 310.00 extra per term, but all now take it in regular classes. In those days we used to build our box- ing ring on apple barrels iilled with sand and cindersg but while at Woodstock we obtained a very fine ring, which is still in very good condition and a great asset to the School. Under the old system, when boys paid for their lessons, the entry for the annual competition was very small, but the average entry now is about seventy per cent of the School. Some of the outstanding boxers in the past ten years have been: Tom Roper in 1929, Taylor in 1931 and 1932, Russell ma. in 1933, Ambrose in 1934 and Truax in 1935. It was in 1935, too, that Mood and Buck fought several extra rounds and still failed to reach a decision. Yes, we could mention many more Old Boys who were taught to take care of themselves before leaving school. Under the old system also one could witness a scrap without gloves in the bush at the north end of the campus, where the J .S. now stands. If caught, the fighters were taken to the Gym., properly equipped with gloves, and made to box under proper conditions. This soon put an end to the roughneck style of fighting. Gymnastics has always been the chief activity in this department. This Work has always been qute voluntary, and a large number of boys can always be found in the gym. after dinner, working for their colours. The outstanding year, I think, was 1926, when the School competed in the Military Tournament at Toronto, and all members of the Team received cups for their fine performance. The Team consisted of S. D. Walbridge, A. P. Ardagh, T. Fyshe, A. W. Nisbit, S. Lazier, P. T. Rogers, F. Stone and W. L. Beatty. It would be in this TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 125 year that the Gym. colours were changed from a half- colour to a full first-team colour for the Gym. Eight. A standard was then set by Frank Stone in 1930 when he won the Ontario Junior Championship, the first time in the history of the School. Acton Fleming followed with the Junior Horizontal Bar Championship of Canada at the C.N.E. in 1934, and Charlie Kirk was captain of the Varsity Gym. team for three years. Then Vernon Howland won the Ontario Championship in 1935, and Hadley Armstrong the Canadian Junior All-round Championship at Montreal in 1938. At about the same time, Wotherspoon and Flem- ing Were keeping up the good Work at R.M.C. Exercises for the lst Gym. Eight have been made much harder in the past six years, to meet the demands of outside com- petitiong the second team of to-day are expected to perform the exercises the first team did ten years ago. Musketry at the School, something the boys really like, is now carried on under far better conditions. From 1921 until the Fire, we Iired in the changing rooms below the Gym., With the gym. kit hanging on each side, and a look- out boy posted outside the Gym. to warn people not to enter, in case they got shot, and very often we found little holes in the gym. kit! Even under those conditions we had some very fine shots. In 1926 We won the Governor General's Challenge Shield for the best in Canada, and were second in the Empire, with some 30,000 boys competing. On returning from Woodstock to our own new rifle range, We had to start all over again, after a lay-off of three yearsg but it did not take long to get back to good shooting. Every year we enter the D.C.R.A. competition, in which We have been awarded 150 medals. We have also won the Galer Hagerty Memorial Prize five times, four silver medals for a possible C1001 in the Imperial Challenge Shield, and eight bronze medals for a score of 99. These are particularly large beautiful medals, and are presented by His Majesty, the Kingg they should'be very proud boys who Win this award. In the Imperial Challenge Shoot dur- 126 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ing the past ten years, the School has never come below twelfth, with between two and three thousand schools com- peting from the various countries of the Empire. In 1939 we won the Junior Challenge Shield for best in Canada. To give a little idea of the amount of shooting in the School, it may be mentioned that we fire an average of 18,- 000 rounds a year. The swimming tank is another place where you may constantly tind boys, though we enter very few competi- tions. Life-saving classes are conducted every year, and every boy must attend these classes until he obtains a certificate from the Royal Life Saving Society. In the last eight years we have received 32 Instructor's Certificates, 33 Awards of Merit, 179 Bronze Medallions and 260 Pro- ficiency Certificates. There are at the moment only twelve boys in the Senior School who have not yet obtained their certificates. The history of the Cadet Corps records many out- standing events, from the days when the uniform was a roll-neck sweater with a leather belt round the waist to the present smart Air Force uniform. Such events include: the unveiling of the War Memorial by Gen. Sir A. Mac- donnellg the inspection taken by Major General McBrien, who reported the Corps as the miniature footguards of Canada, guards of honour for Governors General and Lieu- tenant Governorsg and the guard of honour for Admiral Sims when he opened our Jtuiior School. One Old Boy often comes to my mind: Stephen Cart- wright, who won for the School in 1926 the all-round efficiency shield, with a platoon of 100 boys, competing against all other Cadet Corps. That was a great day for the School, when they brought away eleven cups and the shield from the Colosseum in the city of Toronto. During our stay at Woodstock, a march through the streets of London, after a church parade, was very well received by the people of that city. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 127 Our afliliation with the 110th Squadron, R.C.A.F., and the fitting of new uniforms marked a great event in the history of the Corps. A distinct honour was the parade with the 110th in Toronto on the occasion of the Corona- tion. Then came the visits of three more distinguished soldiers, General Hcrtzburg, Air Marshal Bishop, V.C., and Air Vice Marshal Croil. An event that will remain vivid in the memory of pre- sent boys was our visit to Toronto to line the streets for Their Majesties the King and Queen. -S. J. Batt THE JUNIOR SCHOOL Immediately to the left on the inside of the main door of the Junior School is the dedication tablet bearing the following words: To the glory of God and To the memory of those educated at the School who died in the Great War on the field of battle or from wounds or sickness, some in early youth, some full of years and honour, hut who all alike gave their lives for their country, this house was erected by their old school- fellows and friends in taken of sorrow for their loss and of pride in their valour, in full assurance that the re- membrance of their heroism in life and death will inspire their successors with the same courage and self-devotion. Thus in September of 1924 a separate Junior School building was opened to house the younger lads. A Junior School with a separate staff had been in existence for a number of years but under a common roof with the Senior School boys. Under the new arrangement the younger boys were to attend classes, eat and sleep in their own building, joining the Senior School for Chapel services only, but sharing with them the use of the gym., the swimming pool, the rifle range and other equipment not in the new building. 128 TRINITY COLLEGE soHooL RECORD The present Junior School building was only the first of two units that were to be built according to plans at the time of construction. The present structure was to be one house and another was to be added as the necessity arose. So far the necessity has not arisen but whether or not that time will ever come is one of the unknown quantities of the future. The first unit, however, was complete in itself both from the practical and architectural viewpoint, so that the boys at present are not suffering from any lack of equip- ment or accommodation as is so often the case in an un- completed academic building. This arrangement of a separately housed Junior School may be likened to that of a small college within a large university. It enjoys all the advantages and prestige of the parent body but, operating separately, is allowed to develop a personality of its own. So the boys attending the Junior School of Trinity College School enjoy all the advantages and prestige of the old school but in their own building they develop their own personalities Lmdwarfed by their older schoolmates. The plan of a large boarding school operating a separ- ate building for its junior pupils was first developed in Canada. The English public schools, which to a great extent served as models for the Canadian boarding schools did not operate under this system but accepted their pupils in most cases from widely separated and quite independent preparatory schools. From the time of the disastrous fire in 1928 until 1930, when the new Senior School buildings were opened, the Junior School was forced to operate as a separate unit. Great must their difficulties have been during that period. While the financial depression was at its height, the School was forced to close the Junior School building, from 1933 to 1936. During this time the junior boys lived in Trinity House and occupied a block of Senior School classrooms, thus maintaining their separate entity in spite of the necessary shift across the campus. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 129 The Junior School population has varied greatly since 1924, reflecting as is to be expected the general trend in business conditions. Numbers have gone to a high of 85 and during the depression to a low of 23. In the past three years the number has remained at a pretty stationary level of approximately fifty. It is now felt that the ideal number for the present building would be about sixty and it is hoped that the day is not far distant when this objective will be reached. Boys normally enter the Junior School about the age of nine or later and remain until they are fourteen. Younger boys of course are accepted if circumstances permit classes to be formed of younger age groups. The curriculum of the Ontario Department of Educa- tion is in general followed, although certain deviations are sometimes made both as to curriculum and books if it is felt to be in the interests of the boys' general education and advancement. Additional subjects taught are Religious Knowledge, Singing, Woodwork, Art and Physical Train- ing. The boys engage in the three major games of the School, rugby, hockey, and cricket. The smaller boys play soccer in the Michaelmas term. Minor games and pastimes are tennis, softball, roller skating, skiing, table tennis and many others which can be given no name except to say that they are peculiar to small boys. The atmosphere which pervades a school is of course the most important thing of all. It is the object of the Junior School staff to create an environment in which the young and impressionable minds can acquire a healthy and cheerful outlook on the world. If they can learn to do this with their own schoolmates and the members of the staff, their chances of being successful and happy in life we feel are considerably enhanced. To live congenially with one's neighbours seems a difficult thing for the world to learn. In our little world we are endeavouring to do this, and that seems to be one of the most important con- tributions of boarding school life. -R. F. Yates 130 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE OLD BOYS' ASSOCIATION, ITS PURPOSE AND ORGANIZATION The T.C.S. Old Boys' Association was first formed in the year 1886. In 1895 there were Branches in Toronto, Montreal, Hamilton and Kingston. A list of members marked as being "in good standing for 1895 and 1896" con- tains less than forty names, but the Minutes of its early meetings bear witness to its zeal for the School's welfare. Since its founding, the O.B.A. has been reorganized two or three times, and has grown to contain over five hundred members, but its purpose remains the same, "the en- couragement and maintenance of all matters pertaining to the Welfare of Trinity College School and the advancement of the welfare of the members of the Association." Un- like some other similar associations, it cannot be said of the T.C.S. Old Boys' Association that it has not known adversity. Two or three serious crises that the School has passed through have served to impress, in Old Boys and the existing School alike, a realization of what each meant to the other, and it is doubtful whether any school in the country has been proven to have a more devoted and generous-spirited body of previous students. The Old Boys' Association is the only organized means of keep- ing Old Boys in touch with the School and with each other, and the Association is the surest guarantee that the exist- ence and best traditions of T.C.S. will be maintained. In 1937 the Old Boys' Association was reorganized on a federal plan. Previously for some time it had centred on Toronto, since 1937, the central office has been at Port Hope, and local branches have been formed in various cities. In 1937, the only Branches were Toronto and the Pacific Coast. In 1938, Branches were formed at Montreal, Hamilton, and London. Last year Winnipeg Branch was resurrected, so that there are now in all six Branches, be- sides the Central Association including all Old Boys not living in a Branch territory. Each Branch has its own TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 131 executive committee and arranges annual dinners and other meetings. The Central Association, from 1937 to 1939, was princi- pally occupied in tracing, with the help of Branch Secre- taries, Old Boys' whereabouts. When the work had been as nearly completed as possible, the Association was for- tunate in having the results compiled and bound in an Old Boys' Directory, donated by the late W. R. Houston of Toronto and distributed free to all members of the Associa- tion this year. The present geographical distribution of T.C.S. Old Boys as shown in the new directory would indicate that Toronto is by far the greatest single concentration, con- taining about four hundred of the 1650 Old Boys who are alive and with known address. The next largest group is at Montreal, which has about 250. The Pacific Coast has about 150, Saskatchewan and Alberta, 60, Hamilton, 125, London, Ontario, and Ottawa each 45, and Winnipeg, 35. New York City has nearly 25, with another 60 or more living in the Atlantic Seaboard States. Some Hfty Old Boys are living permanently in the British Isles, while T.C.S. is represented in India, China, Japan, Rhodesia, Natal, Egypt, New Zealand, Singapore, Kenya, Mexico Switzerland, and S. America. The chief present preoccupation of the Old Boys' As- sociation is co-operating with the Seventy-fifth Anniver- sary Committee Cconsisting of thirteen Old 'Boysl to en- deavour to make the celebrations at Port Hope on June lst a memorable event in the School's history. -E. W. Morse. ! . ni' ' -- Y l 132 TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD THE TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL LADIES' GUILD The Trinity College School Ladies Guild was first or- ganized in 1902. On the 18th of February of that year, at the suggestion of Dr. Symonds, a meeting was held in Toronto, at the house of Mrs. E. B. Osler, and a Guild was formed, to be known as the Trinity College School Ladies' Guild, and having for its object the completion of the Chapel and otherwise furthering the interests of the School. Under the guidance of these ladies and their com- mittees, the old Chapel was much beautified-the follow- ing work having been carried out: A roof for the nave and sanctuary walls, the Western Doors, Western Stalls and painting of the walls, the Altar and Sanctuary hangingsg Gallery Seats and Railing CPort Hope Branchjg a carpet for the Sanctuary,-still in use lPeterborough Branchl 3 one of the windows in the Sanctu- ary, a memorial to the late Mrs. E.

Casselsl 3 two Clergy Stalls and Canopies QMrs. Ince and Miss Mary Campbelll. All these gifts and memorials, except the carpet and the hangings, were most tragically destroyed in the fire which occurred on March 3rd., 1928, but to a great many of us, the old Chapel is, and always will be a very beautiful memory. When the new School was built, it was decided to use the future reading room as a temporary Chapel-the furnishing and decorating of which was undertaken and completed by the Ladies' Guild in 1930. This will be used until funds permit the building of a new Chapel.

On Trinity Sunday, 1922, the Iona Cross was placed on the grounds and dedicated as a memorial to those Old Boys of the School who gave their lives in the Great War. In order to commemorate the opening of the new School and to show their appreciation of the encourage- ment shown the Guild by Headmasters during the past twenty-eight years, the panelling and furnishing of the Reception Room was undertaken, a special fund being raised for the purpose, of which Mrs. Duncan McLaren was convenor and to which there were no less than two hundred and nine subscriptions. This beautiful room is now known as the Guild Room. Several rooms including the Library, Masters' Common Room, Carnegie Room, and Junior and Senior boys' Com- mon Rooms have been decorated and furnished by the Guild and a grant of twenty-nve dollars is given annually to the Library. For the past two years a bursary of two hundred dollars has been given to a boy in the School. A Port Hope Branch of the Ladies' Guild was formed when Dr. Rigby became Headmaster in 1903-Mrs. Rigby being the first President. This Branch was re-organized in 1930 by Mrs. Cartwright of Toronto-and since then has remained active, working in co-operation with the Toronto Guild, assisting with, and contributing in various ways to improvements in the Chapel and School grounds. The following have held office as President and Secre- tary-Treasurer of the Trinity College School Ladies' Guild, since it was formed. President:-Mrs. E. B.

Trinity College School will ever be grateful to the ofiicers and members of the Guild, both past and present, who have played and are continuing to play so generous a part in the life of the School. -G, Lewis OBITER DICTA Serious readers should notice a very decided gap in this number of the Record, there is no comprehensive treatment of certainly one of the most important parts of our work-the course of study. It was not possible to in- clude everything, and in numerous talks with Old Boys it has always seemed that school work was not of real concern to them-games, numbers, Prefects and Seniors, Masters, discipline, the general organization of the School were their first interests, and as these have much to do with the development of character and leadership, quite possibly they are right. In a negative sort of Way, how- ever. school work is the only reason why we exist, if our boys should regularly fail their examinations, their futures would be much more diflicult, and our numbers would dwindle to a trickle and then vanish: if they should have unusual success there would probably be no flood of com- mendations or of new boys, as most people would put it down to a certain good fortune in having capable boys in the school, or take the attitude that we were simply doing what was expected of us. Despite this apparent lack of real concern in the vital 1 g,naflwf"'m'te CHOCULAT BAR .E g gqgffaoni'-Q X RSF- " 3222.122-L C 5' 7 :Janna THE BEST mlLK CHOCOLHTE mnDE 138 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD work of the School we should have liked to write about the course of study, how it has been changed recentlyg the composition of the formsg the set systemg the matricula- tion football kicked about in Canada by Universities and Departments of Education, and the new scheme which these independent schools are pushingg intelligence tests and their value or sillinessg vocational guidanceg advisers and adviseesg so-called modern methods of teachingg the recent Government Inspection of our Junior Matriculation workg out-of-school helpg the time-tableg art, music, and wood-work classesg how to learn to studyg mental self- disciplineg rewards and penalties and so on.

EDITORIAL These lines will appear in print at just about the same time as the senior class of 1940 will be taking their last leave as students from the School. To some of them it will seem that it was only yesterday that they came here as very green and tender new boys. Many will go forth with more than a touch of regret, and some not Without a little uncertainty. For as the School marks her seventy-Hfth birthday, and looks back with justifiable satisfaction on three- quarters of a century's progress, all is certainly not Well with the rest of the World. Bloody and desperate War is raging in Europe as our Mother Country struggles desper- ately to preserve the heritage that is hers and ours and the School's. T.C.S. has lived longer than the nation in which she has her roots, and as long as she has lived she has taught the sons of free men how to live in peace and freedom. Be- fore now she has seen this heritage challenged, and just as often she has seen it survive the onslaught of a ruth- less tyrant. Before, too, her sons have risen to the call 2 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD and nobly given their most treasured possessions-their lives-to the cause. God grant that this time we may never have to see the horrors of war, and that there will not be another cross of dismal, cold granite on the field. But We of the graduating class know, and the School knows, that T.C.S. will arise to defend her legacy of freedom with her very life before her sons are ground beneath the iron heel of a dictator. So the Class of '40 go forth into the world, perhaps a little uncertain as to their destiny, but unwavering in their loyalty to their School and to their King. We wish them Godspeed. -K.G.P. D. W. Huestis. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 3 A fx 5' xS1.,- HAPELP TES On Sunday, April 14th., Mr. T. W. L. Macdermot Principal of Upper Canada College, spoke in Chapel. Mr. Macdermot drew a parallel between an automobile factory and a person being trained to go through life. He said, "The people that associate with you are the mechanics who make you What you are. When you leave school you, like a car, go forth and serve as a car serves". He Went on to say that there is a new age of pioneering ahead of us, in the curing of disease and poverty, and that there is a scarcity of trained men. In closing he urged us "while you are looking after the changing things in life-do not forget the unchanging things". Sunday, April 21st: The Rev. J. F. Davidson, the Chap- lain of U.C.C. spoke in Chapel. He said that he hoped this present generation would stand for justice, of which free- dom, equality, and brotherhood are the base. He con- cluded by saying that although we will have to pay for it, we must consecrate ourselves for justice no matter what it costs. On Sunday, April 28th., the Rev. C. M.,Serson C10- '13J spoke in Chapel. For his text he took the following phrase from the Bible: "What manner of man is this, that 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD even the wind and the sea obey Him". He pointed out to us that it was just as diflicult and just as easy for the iishermen to understand this, as it is for us to understand today. On Sunday, May 5th., the Rev. C. J. S. Stuart preach- ed in Chapel. He spoke on the 75th Anniversary of the School. Mr. Stuart compared T.C.S. with a Public school, and said the main difference between the two kinds of schools was that "Religion", which is a fundamental thing in life, plays an important part here. The School teaches us responsibility to one another. On Sunday May 12th., the Rev. H. H. Bedford-Jones C82-'86J spoke in Chapel. For his text he linked together two phrases from the Bible. "Yea, I have a goodly heri- tage" and "The Spirit of Truth". He asked us to think of the nation and the School in combination and to keep the spirit of progress, honour, loyalty, mercy and truth before us, so that when peace comes it may be a valued thing. On Sunday, May 19th., the Rev. F. H. Brewin preach- ed the sermon in Chapel. He drew to our notice a mountain in Japan, which, on first inspection appeared to be one magnificent peak, closer at hand three peaks, each differ- ent, were discovered. He likened this mountain to the church of God, which appeared single and magnificent until further inspection when it appeared as the glorious Trinity. He then dealt with each aspect of the Trinity and showed us how complete and perfect it was. - TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 5 SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY SERVICE AND DIEMORIAL SERVICE Order of Service Hymn: O Merciful and Holy. The National Anthem. The Bidding. fThe Rt. Rev. R. J. Renison, M.A., D.D.J We are gathered here in the sight of God, and in the presence of one another to give thanks to God for the manifold blessings He has vouchsafed unto this School. Let us offer to Almighty God our thanks and praise for the Wise thoughts and generous counsels which moved our fathers to found this School. For all those who have gone before us here, who by their lives and examples have helped to build up the tradi- tions of this School. For the happy comradeship and abiding friendships which had here their home. For those who have gone forth from here to serve God, and work with ungrudging labour, for those whose names have been honoured in Church and state, and for all those who have given their best in peace and War. For all memories of the past which ennoble and satisfy the present, recalling us to the fresh ardours and gallant hopes of youth. The Lord's Prayer. The Psalm: "I Will magnify thee O God my King.

Amen. O God, who through the love and labour of many hast built us here a goodly heritage, and crowned our School with honour and length of days: for these Thy gifts and for Thyself we thank Thee, for past .achievements and future hopesg beseeching Thee that both we and all who follow after us may learn to live as in Thy Presence, and help Thee to build the City of God: through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Bestow upon its rulers wisdom and prudence, upon its scholars understanding and zeal, and grant that true religion, useful learning, and faithful diligence may here forever flourish and abound, to the honour of Thy Holy Name, the good of Thy Church, and the salvation of our souls, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Last Post, The Benediction, Reveille. i1T Bishop Broughall took as his text the words from St. Matthew: "Freely ye have received, freely give." He spoke of the service as the iitting climax to the celebrations. Many might have attended ,Chapel unwillingly in their days at the School, but now they thanked God for the religion taught, and they gave thanks for the Founder and for the loyal men who had worked to build the School, the head- masters and their staffs, and especially Dr. Bethune and Dr. Orchard, for many benefactors, and for all boys who had gone out to make notable contributions to various phases of life. In the face of present dangers, we must see the past as a challenge to the present. We are to build a better Canada and a better worldg for this we may have each only a little to offer, but we must offer all we have, a life, and we must see that its foundations are four square, rooted and grounded in the Christian way of life. The first principle of Christian living is generosity. Jesus Christ showed the generosity of God in His life, and stressed to his disciples the importance of generous mercy and forgiveness. We must be controlled by generosity, not by our acquisitive instinct, and we must not regard our endowments as our own. They were "freely given". Our Christian, Canadian, British heritage was made for us by those who gave their talents, the debt is ours to parents, teachers, to this School. Our gifts must be used to the glory of God and the benefit of others. The spirit of the School has been to hand on the best, to send out boys with responsibility to use their gifts for good. The School has not failed, as is proved by so many names in the list of Old Boys, of whom the finest examples were William Osler and Charles Brent. Not least among 8 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD them were those who gave their lives in past wars and those who are now offering themselves in this new war. The gifts we received are in peril, so we must give our best to save those gifts for mankind. Those boys shortly to leave the School have a job: to rebuild the world after the war. That world will perish unless it is founded on principles. "May the School endure stronger and better when we have gone. May it be a reservoir of the highest in human life and of Christianity, and may those who come here be fountains of all that is good and true to the end." BISHOP BRENT Why Brent House? This question, frequently asked by new boys of the School, has been answered recently in a most interesting Way. Not far from Port Hope sleeps the little town of New- castle and there in the Parish Church was held on April 7th the first Memorial Service for Bishop Brent, to whose memory a tablet has been placed in the Chancel of the Church. The service was a choral communion very reverently conducted by the Rector and at the offertory an anthem was sung, unaccompanied and very beautifully, by twelve boys of Trinity College School Choir. In the church was a large congregation and all members of the upper forms of the School as well as the Headmaster and other mem- bers of the Staff. The address was given by the Rev. F. H. Cosgrave, Provost of Trinity College, Toronto, who, speaking as a close personal friend of Bishop Brent in his later years, made one feel the power and influence of the man whose name we proudly bear. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 9 The Provost opened his remarks by saying that there were really only two Canadians who had attained inter- national reputations and these were Bishop Brent and Sir W. Osler, both of whom we honour as students of this School. Brent, after leaving the School, went to study at Trinity College, Toronto, and having graduated there he re- turned to the School for a year and a half as a master. Following this he turned his attention to his life's work to which he had been 'called in his early days as a result of the wonderful example of fortitude and steadfastness to duty of his father, who held the rectorship of Newcastle Parish Church for forty-one years. Strangely enough, when Brent was ordained there was no vacancy for him in this diocese and he went as a curate to Buffalo. Here he seems to have shown his strong-mind- edness by disagreeing with his bishop over some matter of church decorations and resigned. Later he went to Boston where, he said, he began to learn how very little he knew and how small he was, in consequence ofwhich and under the influence of the Cowley Fathers of St. John he rose to great heights. He was in due course sent to the Philli- pine Islands as one of the leaders of a commission which investigated the opium traflic. Later he was offered and accepted the Bishopric of Western New York at Buffalo and there admistered the diocese for some years. Later, when the U.S.A. entered the Great War, he was personally asked by General Pershing, whom he had met during his work in the Phillipine Islands, to undertake the position of Director General of the American chaplains in France. Here again he made a great name for himself by his wonderful work and influence with the men at the front. He died in 1929, beloved, respected and honoured by all who knew him, wherefore we are honoured in bearing his name and arms on one of our homes. 'May we be worthy of the name. -C.S. 10 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD sp, .ng Qchoclg no M.. f e Notes SEVENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY On May lst, the Seventy-fifth Anniversary of T.C.S., the School was given a whole holiday. In the morning there was a short Chapel service, and after that Mrs. Ket- chum planted a maple tree in front of Bethune House. In the evening a birthday supper was held, at which Langmuir proposed a toast to the School. After this toast was drunk, every boy was given an anniversary pin, a gift from the School. Gift to the School The tennis club is very grateful to Mr. R. P. Jellett for the gift of ten dozen tennis balls. Mr. Jellett's interest in tennis is never-failing. Lecture by Miss Warren On Friday, April 19th., Miss Warren showed the School some very interesting slides of Scandanavia. She showed different historical points of interest in Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, and described some quaint customs of the people in all three countries. - ll Lecture on Sir William Osler Most of the boys at T.C.S. are well aware that Sir William Osler was the first Head Prefect of our School, But few of us knew much of his real work in life.

We were very fortunate in having Dr. Gwyn to talk to us, as he is a relative and a close friend of the Oslers. He gave us an outline of Sir William's life and especially his days here or rather at Weston where the old School was. During his lecture Dr. Gwyn handed round some very interesting documents relating to Sir William's life and work. He promised us that if it were possible he would obtain replicas of such treasures and leave them in the Schoo1's keeping. We hope that Dr. Gwyn can find time to come and talk to us again. Lecture on Scandinavia On Sunday evening, April 21st, Mrs. J. F. Davidson spoke on Scandinavia. The lecture was very interesting, as at that time Scandinavia was the newest theatre of war. Mrs. Davidson was able to give us first hand information about the country and its advantages and disadvantages as a battleground. At the end of the lecture Mrs. David- son very kindly offered to answer any questions and also to show us pictures of the various places she had men- tioned in her lecture. Talk on South Africa Mr. Bernard Schonegeval, and Major-General V. A. S. Williams, C.M.G., C76-'80l spoke at lunch on Monday, April 22nd. Mr. Schonegeval, a former member of the govern- ment of South Africa, gave us an interesting talk on condi- tions in South Africa, as regards the war and the Empire. He stressed his country's lirm stand behind the Mother- land and reminded us that we Were fighting for freedom and peace. Major-General Williams congratulated Mr. Schonegeval on his speech and asked the Headmaster for a half-holiday for the School. 12 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD School Songs On the evening of April 20th., Mr. J. D. Ketchum U07-'lOl with the help of two choir boys from St. Simon's Church in Toronto, revived some old School songs. A good many of these songs had been Written by Mr. Ketchum himself. It was not long before the whole School joined in on the singing, which Was quite a good beginning. A Political Evening Both candidates for the Durham riding visited the School on the last night of the Lent term, on the oc- casion of the "Election" debate. Mr. Rickard came for dinner and spent some time afterwards chatting with the masters in the Common Room. As he was unable to stay for the debate, he left Mr. Macklin and Mr. Willis to sup- port his side of the argument. Mr. Strike was not able to come before half-past seven, but attended the debate and spoke impressively. The Mayor of Port Hope, Mr. Stuart Ryan, was also on hand to do battle for the "Na- tional Governmentn side. i- l 17 ' D. A. Currie U.S.J TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 13 BETHUNE HOUSE NOTES We do not deny that Brent House is a great place, for such it must be to be part of a School with such a reputa- tion as this particular institution, but what we do deny is that Brent House is superior to Bethune. This folly of Brent's in trying to disprove the axiom of Bethune's sup- eriority reflects their inability to recognize a hopeless cause when they see one. , When the builders and carpenters left this School, Brent and Bethune were quite similar, but when the boys moved in, all the superiority gained by Bethune was lost by Brent. Thus it has remained since. Bethune's rooms are better decorated, and the atmosphere in general is pleasant over here. Bethune House has been referred to by one sage as the "saving remnant" of T.C.S. The "saving remnant" are those people without whom mankind would be unable to survive. This title is, of course, due to the School spirit which finds such a welcome home here. It was a very signal honour for us to be the first school in the Empire to fly a Royal Air Force flag. Naturally this is flown from the best situation of the School, Bethune House's lawn. On special occasions, however, the banner is flown on the campus. These special occasions include Bethune's winning of the drill cup fwith which, by the way, some knave has abscondedl. This business leads us to the subject of flying, and we are proud to say that one popular Bethunite has an hour of solo flying to his name already. Though it may be considered a sacrilege for some to change houses, at least one master got disgusted with Brent and duly moved over to a decent house. We might add that he lives neither in Trinity nor in Port Hope. It is true that Brent's shelves are rather over-loaded with cups. In fact we are indebted to them for keeping some of the cups while we make repairs on our shelves, 14 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD which will soon be filled again, unless the action of the Drill Cup becomes a precedent. There is no space left for further proof, but in con- clusion we express our hope that Trinity may long be the school of schools, and Bethune, the house of houses! BRENT HOUSE NOTES The year 1940 is a most memorable one in the history of T.C.S., but also it is an unforgettable year in the history of Brent House. For in this year above all others Brent House has excelled and has been superior to any unnamed and meagre rival. Unfortunately, however, the lowly Bethunes haven't the back-bone to admit it, so I feel it my duty to expound to them in print a few unmistakable facts which cannot honestly be refuted. In T.C.S. there are a number of lst Teams, namely, Rugby, Hockey, Cricket, Gym, Basketball, Squash, and Swimming. In each of these varied sports there is a Captain and a Vice-Captain and every one of them is a member of Brent House. Surely this is a marked achieve- ment and record for our illustrious House. The Shooting Competition was won this year by Brent for the fourth consecutive time. The Strathcona Medal and the Officers' Cup were also awarded to Brents. The Gym. Competition was won by Brent for the sixth con- secutive year. On Sports Day the House again emerged victorious, though she had even fewer entries than the other so called House. The Bradburn Cup for Boxing was won by Brent for the fourth consecutive time. In the Squadron, five out of six oilicers are Brents. Brent House holds a majority in the Prefectorial body, the Senior body and the Junior body. In fact every dwellep of the bottom flat of Brent is a "Privilege" belonging to one of the aforesaid groups. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 15 A visitor, dining at the School for the iirst time, sees a Wonderful array of cups on the south side of the Hall. They are the spoils of the Brent House. Then our visitor gazes on the north side and sees the odd desolate bit of tarnished silver standing in a wilderness of nothingness. Brent House now holds eighty percent. of all School awards. Brent is not only the superior athletic House, but also excels in other branches of School life. The Editor of the "Record" is a Brent as are most of his worthy staff. Our most excellent Head Prefect, too, resides among the en- lightened. Incidentally, we also sport the only boy in T.C.S. to bear two of the highest ranks in the British Empire. Not only is he a distinguished member of the Navy, but has also been knighted for his various and sundry services to King, Country and Homeland, naturally I am speaking of Admiral Lord Sir John ..... Cdo I have to say more ?J. And so I must stop now, but only because of lack of space. Never would one have to cease writing of the fine merits of Brent House because of lack of material. i J. J. Symons U.S.l 16 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE DANCE WEEK-END A striking assemblage of unbelievably clean and joy- ously expectant faces greeted the arrival of the train from Toronto, and also that of the good old "three-thirty-seven", on the afternoon of Friday, April 12. And when those trains arrived, the reason was soon apparent. It was the week-end of the School Dance, and all the names that one may read on any desk in any classroom at any time of any day, had sprung to life and were pouring forth onto the station platform. One by one each of the some thirty T.C.S. boys turned a radiant pink and advanced to seize a suitcase, thereby committing the first act of a forty-eight hour period of chivalrous servitude. It was a boom day for the Port Hope taxis, which turned out in full force to convey us to the House of Learn- ing. Cabs rolled up to Trinity House, and the scenery in the immediate vicinity of that edifice took on a marked improvement. By and by, the whole crowd had arrived, and having been entertained at tea by the Headmaster and Mrs. Ketchum, were shown around the buildings. These activities took up most of the time until dinner. Mr. Scott, in his unwonted capacity of usher, accomplished the amaz- ing feat of getting thirty extra diners into the room with- out the slightest crowding, and they all issued forth well fed and happy, to face the tremendous task of getting dressed for the big affair. Prefects and seniors, incident- ally, were disappointed, to say the least, upon learning that the rest of the school, and therefore the new boys, had to go to a study period. They had to put in their own studs. After the usual sessions with the collars, and the cus- tomary waiting periods, everyone trooped off to the dining hall. There the Commodores, under the able guidance of Mr. Don Gordon, provided some very excellent music with all the qualities that any good dance band has in common with a locomotive whistle. Mrs. Wright and her staff pro- vided a toothsome repast for the dancers: and after that TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 17 the latter proceeded with the festivities in no uncertain fashion. The usual hats and streamers began to fill the air, and the party became of the liveliest. The Upper Canada shield was presented to the Captain of the U.C.C. Football team. Saturday morning, what there was of it, was a rather sleepy period. Breakfast was served in the Hall at ten- thirty, and the guests sat around, glad enough to do nothing in particular. In the afternoon, the lads and ladies attend- ed the cinema. After supper, the Dramatic Society put on an excellent performance of the School play, of which an account appears elsewhere in this issue. This was over at about ten, and informal dancing was held in the Hall until midnight. One would have thought that all the exercise that was necessary had already been provided, but the undaunted young bloods rose Sunday morning and proceeded to hold a roller skating party in the Gym. A good time was had by all. The only setback was that very few of the boys could skate with any degree of proficiency, and they seem- ed to be content to sit on the floor and be carried along by the general momentum. Few casualties were sustained. Lunch for the majority was at Greenwood Tower. After that came the sad business of taking leave. Once more the unbelievably clean faces were presented at the station, this time desperately clinging to the few remain- ing minutes. The train arrived on time, as it always seems to manage to do on such occasions, and all boarded it with one accord. Then, as trains are also wont to do, it began its journey again, leaving only one flaw in the set-up, viz., that the boys were still on it. By and by it became apparent that the boys, wonder of wonders, had also noticed this, and were now proceeding to do something about it. They began to descend upon the platform like the gentle rain from heaven, at intervals of about ten feet, as the iron horse chuffed merrily Torontoward. Nobody was lost, and no damage incurred to boys or train. 18 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD So it was over. It was generally thought that it was the most successful dance within the memory of any of the boys here. This is both appropriate and fortunate, since it was the Seventy-iifth Anniversary dance, and in a Way a sort of birthday party for the School. -K.G.P. THE SCHOOL PLAY This year the Dramatic Club presented the comedy The Three Wise Fools, by Austin Strong. The play con- cerns the life of three old men together, and how it was disrupted by the arrival of a girl. The first old man, Theodore Findlay, is a flery-temper- ed old financier who spends his evenings with monotonous regularity playing solitaire. The second is Dr. Richard Gaunt, a learned medical psychologist who is constantly reading his own articles on "The Unburied Dead" and the third is Judge Trumbull, a calm and austere magistrate whose life is menaced by an escaped convict "Benny the Duck". Years before, the three had all been in love with one Rena Fairchild, and it is her daughter Sydney, willed to them by her dying mother, who descends upon the three, is adopted by them, and is effectively charming in shaking them up from their "ruts". Much excitement is caused when Benny the Duck, who had escaped with a John Crawshay ilater discovered to be Sydney's fatherl, breaks into the house and is helped by Sydney to get away again. She is cast out, but strongly supported by Findlay's dashing nephew, Gordon Schuyler, who had naturally fallen in love with her in the first act. Everything happily comes out right, and the three wise fools go back to their ruts, perfectly content to retire early each night with an apple and a glass of hot water. Mrs. R. G. S. Maier played the role of "Sydney" with vivacious charm and with a range of emotion that bore the hall-mark of professional art of a high order. Mrs. R. G. HHL HIOHD I : E6 'Oil 6 x FF' vw K., n .

J. W. Langmuir's convincing portrayal of Theodore Findlay was ably supported by A. B. C. German and D. M. Keegan as the other old men, and C. S. Campbell as the romantic young man did extremely well with a difficult role. Among the minor parts, L. J. Holton as the old butler and J. A. K. Parr as Benny the Duck were perhaps the most effective, but all played Well. J. Higginbotham was especially colourful as the hard-boiled plain-clothes police officer, and J. W. Duncanson as the footman who had to be called for so loudly was practically real life. The effective presentation of the play owed a great deal to the help of those who toiled behind the scenes in the Work of staging, make-up and other essential details. We have come to count on the expert assistance of Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Humble, Miss Smith and now Mrs. Maier, but custom does not lessen the warmth of our thanks. Mrs. Wright kept up the strength of the players with very adequate food supplies. Mr. Humble was our efficient stage manager, with a hand of Worthy characters to sup- port him. Mr. Reid Budge and Mr. Duchesne operated the lighting, and a good deal besides, on the stage so kindly lent by St. Mark's Church.

INSPECTION DAY The Annual Inspection took place on May llth., and we were very forttmate in having Air Vice Marshal L. D. D. McKean to take the salute. Unfortunately the ranks were somewhat diminished by an epidemic of measles, but the School put up a very creditable showing. The Ceremonial Drill was excellent. The Band also gave a very good account of themselves. As the Corps marched off in column of route there was considerable ap- plause by the spectators. It is worthy of note that this year the Corps marched for the first time in threes. Also, contrary to custom, this year there was one large squadron, divided into three flights, instead of the usual two or three squadrons. This made the ilights larger and more impressive units. After the Ceremonial Drill came the House competition, which was an exhibition of rifle exercises, and Flight and Squad Drill. The commands were crisp and well given, and the orders were well carried out by the Flights. By a very close margin, Bethune House won the cup. During the ceremonial the spectators were thrilled by an exhibition of stunt flying by three R.C.A.F. Harvard Trainers. The planes came back again and again, each time with some more hair-raising stunt than before. At 2.30 there was a Gym. display. The programme provided great variety, from brain-stimulating games for TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 21 the Junior School youngest boys to the most complicated of exercises by the Parallel Bar Team. This show was very much enjoyed by everybody. The P. T. Class was especially goodg after the display Air Vice-Marshall Mc- Kean spoke to the School and spectators. He congratulated everybody on their excellent work and said that the per- formance he had seen was absolutely first class. As a special favour, he went on to ask the Headmaster for a half-holiday at some future date. The day's performance closed with "The King". Special praise is due to Mr. Batt and to the officers for their excellent work in making the Corps of the Anni- versary year as well-trained and successful as it has ever been. DEBATES On March 8th., the motion was: "That in the opinion of this House, wealth is a greater cause of crime than is poverty." Keegan and Morris max. led for the aflirmative, Layne and Monro for the negative. Keegan drew attention to the cases of political graft, and of murder caused by spite and hatred, maintaining that the master criminals came from the upper classes. Layne held that all crime is bred in the slums, and that as conditions grow worse, poverty causes more and more crime. After Morris and Monro had spoken the debate was thrown open to the floor of the House, and Phin, Mack- intosh, Kerry, Lloyd, Tate, Pearson and Langmuir all made contributions to the discussion. When the vote was taken, the motion was defeated by 54 to 7. I , 22 . TRINITY OOLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD On March 15th., the motion was: "That in the opinion of this House, Canada should revert to a liberal immigra- tion policy." Holton opened the debate, explaining that a liberal immigration policy could be maintained with restriction of immigrants to those from Western Europe and the U.S.A. After referring to the over-government of Canada, he pointed out that the industry of half the country is farm- ing and of a quarter, mining, so that immigrant experts are needed to establish other trades, such a glass manu- facture, to diversify our economy. Peacock, leading for the opposition, declared that Can- ada could not absorb medical and other professional men, as the universities supply enough. He claimed that the money spent on immigration, 31,500,000 annually, could be put to better uses, and that anyway immigrants usually only swelled the unemployment rolls. Pochon countered the last argument by instancing the Czechoslovakian shoe company which was allowed to bring in a handful of technical experts and consequently provided work for a thousand Canadian workers, thereby decreasing the number of unemployed. He pointed out that in a few years the French-Canadian will outnumber the English element, a state of affairs which would have its dangers. Finally the speaker pleaded for a less selfish policy, to provide homes for some of the refugees from Europe. Cheyney argued that when the war is over and the soldiers return, there will not be enough jobs for them. Why then should we bring in foreigners to reduce the number of jobs still further? A large inllux of foreigners might, as they multiplied, put real Canadians in the min- ority in the country, and that must not be allowed to happen. After the principal speakers, Mackintosh, Tate, Ander- son, Phin, Keefler, Draper, Lyall, Gray, Morton and Lam- bert took part in the debate. The motion was defeated by 40 votes to 11. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 23 The last, and most heated debate of this school year was held on March 19th. The motion before the house was "That in the opinion of this house the Liberal party should be returned to power at the coming Federal elec- tion." The Headmaster, in a few opening remarks, pointed out that to vote was the duty of every citizen in a Demo- cracy. Phin and Draper spoke for the government and upheld the motion, while Dalton and Cawley spoke for the opposition-which turned out to be solidly behind Dr. Manion. Phin opened the debate by claiming that Conservatism had been scuttled in favour of an illusory National Govern- ment that had no "shadow cabinet", seemed to have no aims, and that seemed to deal in trivialities. Dalton answered Phin by showing up the Liberal war eiort, and asking "If these are trivialities, what are mon- strocities ?" He compared Canada's war effort with that of Australia and accused lvlr. King of holding up the Empire Air Training Scheme. Draper pointed out the great changes Mr. King had brought about in regards soldier's dependents, and said that if Mr. King held up the Air Scheme it was because it was in parts against our constitution. Cawley then arose and said that four and a half years should have been time for the King government to show its leadership. "In the last election we were asked to vote for King or chaos and we seem to have got both", he went on. He accused Mr. King of using Hitler's methods when he dissolved parliament. The debate was then thrown open to speeches from the floor. The following spoke for the Opposition: Armour ii. called down the Government for wasteful spending on the new Toronto Post Office in time of war. Kerry asked us to remember the complaints in the papers of soldiers' dependents. Tate pointed out that despite the many crisis that we had been through in the past few years, the King 24 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Government had not shown enough initiative to prepare beforehand. Other Conservative speakers were Parker, Waters, Duggan ii., and Robarts. For the Government: Kovacs spoke humorously and often, comparing the treatment of the King Government's opponents to that of the Jews in Germany. German point- ed out that just because Manion was a soldier he was no more qualified than King to know what went on at home during a war. Other Liberal speakers were: Strong, Top- ping and Higgins. Four of our visitors rose to their feet. Mr. Macklem and Mr. Willis made short speeches in defense of the Liberal government, While Mr. Strike and Mr. Ryan, the Mayor of Port Hope, spoke for National Government. After the rebuttal speech, a vote was taken and the motion was found to have been defeated 70 to 21. El EJ 3 P. B.

The moonlight falls in silken sheets, The sleeping wave no longer beats: Upon the ghostly shore there stand, Where silent lake meets silent sand, Two lovers, lonely hither strayed, As though to climb the pathway made From here to heaven, straight as straight By the moonlight, shining late, Dream together, dream alone Of a paradise their own. ! Far away, across the bay, Lights are gleaming, hearts are gay: TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Music drifting, soft and low, Throbbing, breathing, coaxing, slow, Crescendo-rising, hotter, higher, Sending spurts of rushing fire Through the veins to nimble feet, Then relaxing, soothing, sweet, It sings of gentle love and fills The dancers With its tender thrills. Far upon a moonlit knoll, Where whispering breezes softly stole And shivered through the stately fir, And set the pallid leaf astir, Upon the grasses' tangled mat, Lost in meditation sat, Thinking deeply, thinking long, The poet. Soon his tender song Welled up from heart to lips, and rang Clear, exultant, as he sang: "There's summer in the air to-night, And gentle Freedom in the light: The moon's descending from aloft, Setting quiet, setting soft, Disappearing is the road To his heavenly abode, Disappearing are the ties O'er the water to the skies, He sets content because he knows That heaven lives where Freedom goes.

Lovers bade their sad goodbyes And saw the angry planet rise, Dancers swayed with slackened pace, With tearful eye, averted face, And far, upon a blackened knoll, Where mighty cannon-smoke did roll And billow o'er the land, there sat Upon the grasses' bloody mat, Moaning loudly, moaning long, The stricken poet, this his song: "There's hell alive and loose to-night, And blazing hate: beneath the light Of yonder bloody orb, and shod With ghastly, crimson death, the god Of War and black destruction rides: In fiendish mirth he holds his sides To see our Woeful plight! O Lord Supreme of Love, couldst Thou afford Us but a gesture of Thy hand And in his path but firmly stand? If Thou hast made us, wilt Thou see Thy handiwork so snatched from Thee By this seething demon Mars Here beneath the hateful stars?" Thus singing, fell the bard, And there chanced a lonely guard, Who saw naught upon the turf But another murdered serf. ' 27 -K.G.P 28 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE HUNDREDTH ANNIVERSARY OF T.C.S. It doesn't seem so long ago since I was a pupil at the "School on the hill". Twenty-five years have passed, some slower and some faster than others, since I was there. I can remember well the seventy-fifth anniversary, the crowd of Old Boys with their wives and children coming back to the old School. Now, twenty-five years later, I have been back to help celebrate the centenary. When I look back over those twenty-five years, I smile to think of some of the events that happened. The other week I was at the wedding of young Anne Dixon, who was born on the evening of the seventy-fifth anniversary. My smile becomes broader when I think of her father handing out two cigars, one to the Headmaster and one to the Head Prefect, to celebrate her birth. There are only three masters at the School now that I knew. The others have either passed on or found new jobs elsewhere. Mr. M .... is the present Headmaster, and Mr. D. . . and Mr. L . . . are still there. Mr. H . . . . one of our most promising masters, became the headmaster of Eton College just four years ago. I met him in England last summer. There were many familiar faces at the Reunion. There was "Mose" fthe lazy boy of our flat, who slept every second he couldl, who later became a member of the British House of Commons. There was "Doug", an admiral in the Canadian Navy now. "Swen", our encyclopaedia of swing, became an orchestra leader, and his band was voted the most popular in the United States. Johnny Waters and "Speck" Dalton are members of "Swen"s band. And there was "Allie", who fooled us all by becoming a physical train- ing instructor at R.M.C. When I looked over the buildings, there wasn't much change in them, except for the addition of a new house, called Ketchum House after the former Headmaster. The grounds are the same, and cricket is still the same even TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 29 though twenty-Iive years have passed. The tuck shop is different. It is now a modern building, with neon light bulbs, it is a beautiful sight to watch flickering in the night. I was in for a surprise that evening and so were many other Old Boys. Jack Langmuir and Charles Campbell, contemporaries of mine, and now co-starring in the Broad- way smash hit The Fugitive, returned to the School to play their original parts in the school play of 1940, The Three Wise Fools. Mrs. Glover was the only one of the cast that did not appear in the new version, because she is in Eng- land now with her husband. Her part was taken by a Mrs. Ross, a master's wife. It certainly brought back old memories. I remember my companion at the old pro- duction, it was Paul Sims, the well known broker, who moved to Vancouver recently. I met many old friends at the play. Among them were J. O. Hart, the former light-weight champion of Can- ada, Tim Cawley and Jim Thompson, the famous golf pro- fessionals, Charles Robarts, president of the Robarts Dis- tilleriesg and Frank Lewin, the old track star. At the Old Boys dinner on Saturday, Ken Phin en- lightened us with a speech on the new boy system of to-day compared with the system we knew twenty-five years ago. Ken is the editor and publisher of the New York Times now, and owns three other newspapers. Tears came to my eyes as I looked back at the old School from the road, as I was on the way back to Mont- real and my work. I spent the happiest days of my life at T.C.S. -A.B.M. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ADOLPHUS Herr Hitler of Germany, By his Mein Kampf he swore, The Norsemen of Oslo, Should suffer wrong no more. By his Mein Kampf he swore it, And named the battle day, And bade his swastikas ride forth, East and West and South and North, To summon his array. East and West and South and North, The swastikas ride fast, And Poland, Holland and Denmark, Have heard Der Fuhrer's blast. Shame on the false Herr Goering, Who lingers in his home, When Ribbentrop of Prussia, Is on his way to Rome. There be thirty chosen Swedes, The bravest in the land, Who always by Herr Hitler, Both morn and evening stand. Evening and morn the thirty, Have by Herr Hitler stood, Dressed from the right in lines of White 'Tis thought they're made of wood. And with one voice, the thirty, Pledged their allegiance brave, "Go forth, Go forth, dear Adolf, You needn't wait to shave. Go, and return in glory, May fortune favour thee, And hang in Goering's bedroom, Your medals thirty-three". TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD And now hath every city, Sent up her tale of men, The Huns are many thousands, The Jews are minus ten, Before the line of Maginot, Is met the great array, A proud man was dear Adolf, Upon the battle-day. For all the German armies, Were ranged beneath his eye, And on the west the English, With many a stout ally, And with a mighty following, To join the muster, came, That Visage of benevolence, One F.D.R. by name. And when the face of F.D.R. Was seen amongst their foes, A shudder almost audible, From Germans all arose. In their aeroplanes was no coward But shot at him and missed, No Hun but screamed out hisses, Until the dust he kissed. Now Adolf's brow was sad, And Adolf's speech was low, He darkly looked at F.D.R. And darkly at the foe. Their van will be upon us, Before evacuation, And if they once go up the Rhine, What hope to save the nation? TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Meanwhile the Rhineland army, While trembling as if chilled, Came running back, retreating, shy, Fleeing like fiends, they knew not why, Except they might be killed! Four hundred warlike howitzers, Boomed forth a royal salute, As the British took with quickened pace! With bayonets fixed, ahead did race! Attacked the Germans, face to face! Found out that Germans couldn't shoot! And the Great Adolf of Prussia, From that awful field did flee, As fled the many Prussians, Who found they still could flee. And far from the haunts of Englishmen, He stays, still plotting, vile, And his pale neighbours, muttering low, Dare never say "Sieg Heil". - I. G.

In this game the School, although they tried very hard, were severely worsted by a vastly superior team. The score at the end of the first half was 43-11 in the home team's favour. The second half was a repetition of the first, the score being 45-8. Gourlay was sensational for S.A.C., scoring 36 points. Robarts, with 8 points to his credit, was the best for the School. The final score: S.A.C. 88, T.C.S. 19. SCHOOL vs. R.M.C. At Kingston, March 20th. In this game the School tried hard to make up for their previous defeat at the hands of R.M.C. but were unable to do so. It was a close, hard -fought game but R.M.C. was consistently superior. Stewart played Well for R.M.C. While Stokes and Svenningson were the most effective for the School. The final score: R.M.C. 20, T.C.S. 9.

CHRONICLE Gardening and general horticulture appears to be in- teresting quite a large number of the Junior School boys. Sections of the long flower bed at the west end of the School have been set aside for those especially interested. We are wondering if gardening as a means of work- ing off detention isn't rather enjoyed by some. Measles in and beyond the School have restricted to some extent our normal routine but not nearly as seriously as the unusually wet weather. The boys have been excep- tionally cheerful about cancellations due to inclement weather and We would like them to know good humour under adverse conditions is noticed and appreciated. .1-l ,..

The programme said registration would begin at eleven, but by ten o'clock the officials in Trinity House-were already doing a roaring busi- ness. In the course of the two days, 270 Old Boys signed their names, and there were an estimated 150 ladies and parents. The festivities began shortly after eleven with the arrival of the First XI of to-day, dressed, especially as to whiskers, to represent a cricket team arriving in 1865. They were in horse-drawn vehicles, a station bus and a landau of the period. After circling the field, the team got down at the Tuck Shop, discarded their "beaver" top-hats, and the first cricket match began. The Old Boys XI batted first, but did not do very well, even against '65 period bowling. They lost seven wickets for forty-one runs before the luncheon interval. Rain in the afternoon prevented any further play. The School left the Dining Hall entirely to the Old Boys and their guests, who filled the accommodation to the number of three hundred and twenty. After the toast to the King, the Headmaster welcomed the guests and spoke of the happy reason for this large gathering. "In a sense", TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 49 he said, "a School never grows older for its average age re- mains the same, but we like to think that T.C.S. is seventy- iive years old in service, to youth and nation"g he then in- troduced Dr. Francis Parkman, Headmaster of St. Mark's School, Southborough, Massachusetts. Dr. Parkman said: "Although you at Trinity College School did St. Mark's no service when you took one of our finest teachers away to be your headmaster, I am glad to let bygones be by- gones. When Phil Ketchum and I discovered a year ago that both schools were to celebrate their Seventy-fifth An- niversary this spring, we decided that we must exchange visits. Thus he came down to our party last week-end, representing the Canadian Headmasters' Association, T.C. S., and himself-and I am pleased to stand here now at your 75th, to convey my own personal greetings, those of St. Mark's School and more generally those of our Head- masters' Association. I don't suppose that a man changing from a Canadian to a New England school, or vice versa, would find great differences, for both groups of schools seem to have taken their inspiration, to some extent at least, from the English public schools and have been adjusted to the demands of roughly similar backgrounds and needs in this country and on the eastern seaboard of the United States. We in New England are sometimes accused of aping the English schools. For my part, I wouldn't know enough about them to copy them closely, but we do seem to have some common ideals, and they are yours too-excellent scholar- ship combined with religious training, and the ideal of a selfless service to one's community and to one's country- and I don't think we can be reproached for that. Service to one's country has a very vital meaning in these days, in Canada, and it may soon have an equally vital meaning for our own boys. We have all been watch- ing the ordeal which your compatriots have been under- going, with our hearts in our mouths and with admiration for the courage and tenacity which they have displayed. 50 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD A few months ago, participation in the war seemed an im- possibility for my country, but we are again showing our capacity for quick changes in public sentiment, and now it seems far from an impossibility. Our counsels are still confused, our course of action and the best way to help are still not clear, but I hope, and millions of others hope with me, that somehow our country may take its part in the defense of all that we in the United States and you in Canada hold dear." Mr. C. A. Bogert C78-'Sli thanked Dr. Parkman on be- half of the School and the crowd moved into the open air again. Afternoon Entertainments A cadet corps parade had been arranged, and the corps was inspected by Major-General V. A. S. Williams, C.M.G. U76-'SOL Ceremonial drill of remarkable smart- ness was just being completed to vigorous applause when it began to rain. Plans were therefore changed and an exhibition of Junior School boxing and Senior School Horse and Horizontal Bar work was given in the gymnasium to the obvious delight of those present. The Junior School brought the performance to a close with a selection of School songs. The Old Boys thoroughly enjoyed inspecting the large collection of old-time pictures and trophies arranged in the Carnegie Room, and particularly the life-sized photo-carica- tures of a number of headmasters and well-known assistant masters who appeared to be actually sitting there uttering characteristic remarks! The rain continued, with intervals of fog, and tea had to be served in Trinity House instead of on the terrace. But no rain could dampen the spirits of hundreds of Old Boys happily renewing the friendship of the past, and after it stopped, most of them made their way to the old Tuck Shop, where delicacies of bygone days were being served. TRIIIITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 51 The Dinner A record gathering of 200 Old Boys sat down to dinner in the Cobourg Golf Clubhouse in the evening. After the King's health had been drunk with full musical honours, Colonel Ewart Osborne, President of the Old Boys' Association, expressed the enthusiasm felt by all over the remarkable turnout at this reunion. He explain- ed that Senator Barnard was prevented by illness from being there to propose the toast to the School, and an- nounced that Bishop Renison had undertaken at short notice to perform that duty. Bishop Renison C86-'92J was received with tumultuous applause and the singing of "He's a jolly good fellow". In proposing the toast of the evening, he spoke as follows. We are fortunate to be able to gather in such peace- ful Ill environment to celebrate a loyalty. There are many loyalties in life-we may say, especially in these dark days, God help the man who has not one loyalty to which he can cling-and to-night our purpose is to celebrate an intimate loyalty of a kind not often talked about much, but for a little time the lid is off while we express our loyalty to T.C.S. The School was founded in that mid-Victorian age of optimism which can be compared to only one other period in history, the Augustan age. The Pax Britannica was a world blessing. Canada was a young country when T.C.S. was founded. Those were great days: nothing was im- possible to those who spoke the English tongue, and the British race would always be in the van. There were great men in those days. For one thing they were not afraid to wear whiskers. The whiskers en- abled even men of five foot two to maintain control of their family. To-day no one wears whiskers, some, like my old friend Seagram, have not even hair on the' top of their heads-and which of you can say he has any control of his family? 52 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RE-CORD The Founders wanted to embody great British tradi- tions in this School. These were the ideals spoken of this morning by Dr. Parkman, scholarship, religion and service to one's community and country. The School has owed a great deal in establishing these traditions to the series of great headmasters. No one who knew Dr. Bethune can forget his strong serenity. Dr. Orchard had been really a second founder of T.C.S. iHere an ovation for Dr. Orchard, cheers and the singing of "He's a jolly good fellow"J. It is splendid to see Dr. Orchard among us again looking so young and happy. Mr. Ketchum in the last seven years has performed well the difficult task of carrying the torch into new conditions. In looking back to our days at School we have to use imagination and dramatize ourselves. There was a harm- less and guileless youth in my time, the Bishop continued, a colourless fellow whom I did not see again for twenty years after we left. Then, arriving at Porcupine, when I came out from Hudson's Bay on snowshoes, I found a church with his name on it. I wondered how he could possibly get by in such a town as Porcupine! In talking to his wife, I discovered how it was done. She spoke of the way in which he concealed his dynamic spirit. She asked me if I remembered the occasion at School when a cruel and horrible master was about to cane him, and he held out his hand boldly with the words "Fire away, sir. You can't hurt me!" I said I did. And the time when on a dare he went down from a third storey window on a rope of sheets at night to fill a pillow-case with apples and re- turn by the same route? I said I remembered perfectly! That man dramatized himself, and it showed the way to get on in life! There have been heroes at T.C.S., there have been athletes and those of academic distinction. One character- istic tradition of the School has been religion. At T.C.S. we believe in God. The state of the world to-day shows that we cannot do without religion. The outlook is dark, TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 53 not on account of one man only, but because a new gen- eration has arisen without belief in freedom, justice or any of the values of our religion. No philosophic attitude will conquer them. There is a mysticism of the devil that can only be beaten by the mysticism of God. We are not ashamed of the religion we stand for. We do not forget those who died for these principles twenty-five years ago. "They shall not grow old as we that are left ..... " Now there is a call for a new genera- tion of those who believe in these things. We return to the School set on her throne on the hill. In some ways she may be compared to Cleopatra, never showing age, never forgetting even the lovers who forget her, remaining always serene. There is something in T.C.S. that is not to be put into words, something that grips the heart. Gentlemen, Trinity College School! In his reply, the Headmaster, who was also given a rousing reception, remarked that Bishop Renison had given expression to the inarticulate feelings of all Old Boys. It was most significant that at both the day's gatherings speakers had stressed the importance of religion. This was in the nature of a North American Old Boys' meeting, Mr. Ketchum said, for men were there from all over Canada and many parts of the United States, and a file of more than fifty messages before him brought greetings from England, central Africa, Switzerland and many distant parts of the world. These and the attendance at the re- union showed that the family of T.C.S. boys is marking its 75th birthday with unanimous enthusiasm throughout the world. It is an inspiring thought that these boys, in 26 nations of the world, are united in a bond of fellowship through their deep affection for the School, the School does not forget them, and especially in these days do we think of those who have taken up the challenge and are on active service. ' Touching briefly on some of his memories, recollec- tions that brought out much of the history of T.C.S. in the 54 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD past thirty years, the Headmaster mentioned many famous T.C.S. names. Enthusiastic cheering broke out at a refer- ence to Mr. Geldard. The spirit of the School remained always the same, and that spirit is no stagnant pool, no cistern that contains, but a flowing spring, fresh, full, con- stantly fed, overcoming all barriers and having its source in high ground, in the tall timbers, the old timers behind the School. The School was founded by the Rev. W. A. Johnson, in 1865, to provide for boys a training in Godliness and all good learning. It has continued to do its best to live up to the purpose of its founding, and it has stressed the need of self discipline, undestanding, and a sense of responsibility. A good citizen is surely one who under- stands how to use freedom without license, how to practice the principles of Christianity with conviction. In the new world we hope to create, tried with fire, there must be less license, more compelling, Christian lives. We stand or fall by our principles, there will be diffii- cult days ahead, days of deep sorrow and crisis, but who can fail to believe that right will triumph? The Headmaster closed by quoting words cited from a speech of Lord Hali- fax and carved on a column before the Viceroy's House in New Delhi: In Thought, Faith, In Word, Wisdom, In Deed, Courage, In Life, Service". So may T.C.S., so may our Country and Empire be great. Mr. R. P. Jellett U92-'97J spoke briefly of T.C.S. as one of the finest things in Canada and voiced his convic- tion that the School would enjoy deserved future success. His quotations from memory were most apt and his words most warmly received. Mr. Argue Martin C14-'17l, Chairman of the Seventy- flfth Anniversary Committee in charge of all preparations for the occasion, mentioned the work of organization en- tailed by this reunion, paying tribute to the Headmaster, members of the committee such as Charles Burns, "Buck" Pearce, Peter Campbell, Col. Ewart Osborne and par- ticularly Eric Morse. All 01d Boys, he said, should con- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 55 sider themselves privileged men in having had a sound education in a way of living, and should feel it a duty al- ways to give the School every support. "Buck" Pearce had had charge of the preparation of the menus, the illustrated maps, and the collection of life- size figures of previous masters in the Carnegie Room. Charles Burns had been Chairman of the Attendance Com- mittee, and Pete Campbell, of the Publicity Committee. Col. Osborne had been Chairman of the Dinner Committee, con- sisting of himself, Buck Pearce and Brookes Gossage. The list of arranged speeches ended there, but the Chairman then called on Dr. Orchard. Dr. Orchard said he had not expected to speak to the Old Boys collective- ly, but he had enjoyed one of the proudest days of his life in talking to them as individuals. "You haven't changed," he told them, "you haven't grown any older, and I feel younger. You must seek all ways to make the School more loved and more useful. The School needs you, and we have you, heart and soul." The chairman then called for a few words from the oldest Old Boy present, G. D. Perry C69-'74J who spoke of his memories of happy days as "an average or a little poorer than average" student and athlete, with allusions to the old frame building that housed Mr. Badgley and his family, the building that they called and still is the barn, and another between that had no architectural pretensions but was of great convenience to generations of boys. Called upon as President of the Toronto Branch, Charles Burns U21-'25J said it was a thrill just to be around on such a day as this. The Headmaster then read out the list of messages received, which included greetings from the Old Boys As- sociations, from the Old Boys on Active Service in Alder- shot, in the Royal Navy, and in Halifax, and from the schools of Upper Canada College, St. Andrew's College, Ridley College, Lakefield, and Hatfield Hall. CA list of Old Boys who sent messages is printed elsewherel. 56 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Eric Morse, as Secretary of the Old Boys Associa- tion and Mr. D. K. Parr, as managing editor of the Record, were called upon and spoke briefly. Colonel J. W. Lang- muir, Secretary of the Governing Body, talked of the prac- tical ways in which the Old Boys could help the School to which they owed so much. Then the singing of God Save the King ended the pro- ceedings. Other Events Wives and other guests of the Old Boys enjoyed sup- per in the Hall with the School on Saturday evening, and afterwards the company were entertained with movies. On Sunday, the Chapel was crowded for the annual Memorial service. A report of this service appears in the Chapel Notes on another page. A large number of the Old Boys remained to lunch with the School after the service. In the Hall the Head- master spoke briefly and introduced the oldest Old Boy present, Mr. Perry.

I wish I could be with you all, to meet old friends, but more particularly to congratulate you and your staff on the splendid Way you are keeping the old School going. This war will find all T.C.S. boys doing their bit some- where or other and they could not be employed in a better cause than helping the British Empire to rid the world of this evil thing. Here in East Africa we have our small part to play. My only regret is that the "powers that be" consider anybody over fifty an old man. I used to do so, too, at one stage. It is strange how one's ideas change with time. But again every good wish to you all, and salaams to those of my time who may be with you on June lst. G. D. Rhodes V01-'04J. Kenya, Colony. The history of T.C.S. is such that we all must be proud of it and feel ourselves privileged to maintain its good name. Old Boys are glad indeed to see the School in such good condition, we know what efforts you and your staff and the boys have made to overcome difficulties in the past and the result is a source of deep joy to us.

TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 69 75TH ANNIVERSARY DINNERS AT TORONTO The Toronto Branch's 75th Birthday Celebration Dinner was held on the evening of the 1st of May, in the Roof Garden, at the Royal York Hotel. Despite a rainy evening more than one hundred and eighty Old Boys turned out. The Banquet Hall was taste- fully decorated and on each table were cards in the School colours bearing various dates throughout the School his- tory, which enabled the Old Boys to find their former school-mates. The earliest class covered the period from the School's inception in 1865, to 1880. At this table were Lieut. Col. Norman G. Hugel 11873-811, J. E. Fidler C1876- 81J, Major General V. A. S. Williams C1876-803, C. A. Bogert 11878-811, and L. L. McMurray C1881-831. The gathering was presided over by the President of the Toronto Branch, Mr. Charles F. W. Burns C1921-251, who made a most capable Master-of-Ceremonies. On his right was Wing Commander Geoffrey S. O'Brian C1907-123, who proposed a toast to the School in a moving speech, re- ferring to the present generation on Active Service as Well as those who gave their lives in the First Great War. This toast was responded to by the Headmaster, P. A. C. Ket- chum 11912-161, in his usual enlightening vein. The con- cluding speaker Was Mr. Argue Martin C1914-171 who made a few remarks relative to the athletic side of school life. Other people at the head table were Colonel J. Ewart Osborne, R. C. H. Cassels, J. W. Seagram, and the follow- ing members of the Active Service Forces: Major G. P. Scholfleld, Lieuts. J. E. Dillane, W. L. Beatty, Robert Lyon, E. N. Heighington, W. J. Leadbeater, John Defries, and Private John Coulson. An orchestra played selections from Gilbert and Sullivan during cocktails and throughout the dinner, after which J. D. Ketchum C1907-101, with his well-known artis- 70 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD try, provided accompaniments to some of the old favourite choruses, intermingled with the good old school songs written by "J.D." himself. The whole affair was a huge success thanks to the un- tiring efforts of the Toronto Secretary-Treasurer, R. Fal- conbridge Cassels. AT MONTREAL On the seventy-fifth birthday of the School, May 1, 1940, some fifty Old Boys gathered at the Montreal Club to dine together and celebrate the passing of this notable milestone. In the absence of the Branch President, Stanton Mathewson, who has gone on active service, the Vice- President Con Harrington presided, and the evening com- menced With the asking of the familiar School Grace by Doctor Francis. The business of the Annual Meeting was combined with the Anniversary celebration, and G. Burbidge, S. R. Saunders, Donald Byers, Rodney Patch and Pat Hingston were elected to the Branch Executive for a term of two years. The Chairman read an inspiring letter from the Head- master, whose inability to be present was much regretted. Telegrams bringing greetings from the dinners being held in New York, London and Toronto were also communicated to the meeting. Hugh Savage was reappointed Honorary Auditor. His work in this connection is much appreciated by the Com- mittee, and he would appear to be headed for a life tenure of office. The report of the Special Committee on Transportation to Port Hope was presented by Fred Wigle. It was obvious that his Committee had gone into this question with the railways at great length, and the arrangements concluded promised to be most satisfactory. Incidentally, the dry TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 71 business Hgures usually served up in a report of this kind were literally transformed into flesh and blood by the speaker to the great amusement of all. Lin Russel proposed the toast to the School, which was responded to by Eric Morse, whose presence among us is always enjoyed. In his reply an outline of the plans for June 1 was given in a manner calculated to arouse the interest of the most indifferent Old Boy. The formal part of this enjoyable evening was closed by a few well chosen Words of Wisdom from "Styx" Mac- aulay. AT LONDON The London Branch of the T.C.S. O.B.A. held their dinner at the London Hunt and Country Club on May first. Unfortunately we had a very small turnout, but the event was greatly enjoyed by those who attended. Those present included P. A. DuMoulin, A. S. Graydon, Ralph Yates, R. A. Fisher, K. A. Ross, J. S. Labatt, Hugh Mackenzie, J. O. Combe, T. B. King, J. G. Spragge, John Becher, Phil Ambrose, D. A. Flock and Alec Becher. Mr. Hugh Labatt, the President, was unable to be present due to illness, so Tony DuMoulin, the Vice-President, was in the chair. Tele- grams were received from the Montreal, Toronto, and the New York branch dinners. Mr. Yates, the Principal of the Junior School, very kindly consented to come and speak to us. In his very interesting talk there were some highlights which should be mentioned because of interest to many Old Boys. The first of these was his very sincere reference to Mr. C. H. Boulden, or "Sis" Boulden as he was known to many Old Boys. Mr. Yates had his first experience with him when Mr. Boulden was Headmaster of Lake Lodge at Grimsby. It was there that Mr. Yates first realized what fine qualities Mr. Boulden possessed, a man who always thought of other people before himself, a sound counsellor, and a friend of 72 TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD every boy. Mr. Yates thinks that one of the greatest requirements of a successful schoolmaster is a sense of humour. He went on to outline changes that have taken place in the J .S. during the last few years. The distinc- tion day honour which is awarded for improvement in any direction was thoroughly illustrated, new methods of de- tention have replaced the old copying of lines. After dis- cussing the relationship between the masters and the boys, Mr. Yates finished his talk by referring to Mr. Ketchum, the Headmaster. He pointed out how much Mr. Ketchum appreciated the help that the Old Boys gave him and how much their efforts meant to the future of the School. It was most gratifying to hear such fine praise about the Headmaster. After the speaker sat down, the June First week-end was discussed by everyone. AT NEW YORK On May the first, an American T.C.S. Old Boys' As- sociation was formed at a dinner held in honour of the School's Seventy-fifth Birthday. Though small, the group was representative of the years at the School from 1884 to 1939. It included: W. L. Curphey, E. C. Cutler, M. R. H. Garnett, G. R. Hancock, J. S. Lieb, H. R. Langslow, W. Mood, F. J . Sjostrom, R. L. W. Whitehead, G. M. Williams, G. M. Williams, Jr., B. S. Williams, H. A. Richardson. Congratulatory telegrams from O.B.A. Branch As- sociations in London, Toronto, Hamilton, and Montreal were read by Mr. M. R. H. Garnett, who also read a greet- ing from the Headmaster. Since this was the first meeting of Old Boys in New York City, much of the evening was spent in reviving school-day memories, and Mr. f"Dean"J Richardson's amusing reminiscences proved to be an important feature of the dinner. n TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 73 Many thanks are due to Eben Cutler and the Com- mittee Who organized this meeting at The Canadian Club at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. It is intended that these meet- ings shall continue at regular intervals in the future. The following officers were appointed for the new branch:- President-B. S. Williams. Vice-President-G. M. Williams, Jr. Secretary-Treasurer-E. C. Cutler. Advisory Committee:-H. A. Richardson, G. M. Wil- liams, H. R. Langslow, M. R. H. Garnett. 1NoteJ: The New York dinner deserves special men- tion inasmuch as it was our iirst gathering of Old Boys in the United States, Where we have some 130 Old Boys, and has led to the formation of what is in effect a new branch of the Old Boys' Association, awaiting only formal ap- proval by the Central Executive Committee at its next meeting. It is really more than simply another branch, as will be noted in the following extracts quoted from a letter describing this very important and enthusiastic oc- casion: "The prevailing sentiment felt that we would have an organization in the United States parallel to The Old Boys' Association. We want, as it were, Dominion status, be- cause we are for the most part Americans and want to support the School as such. That is a technicality, but it emphasizes the strong bond of the American Old Boys and the School. "It might be in order to add that We Americans are right behind the School and all that it stands for in the Empire. Memories of the last war and the School's heroic part were prominent at dinner last night. I personally earnestly hope that you will make the most of the forming of an American O.B.A. to emphasize to the greatest extent that this spontaneous and enthusiastic spirit 'is but part of the close relationship of the U.S.A. and the Empire. In this case the tie is with the School, but I could not help but sense how deep the other lies." 74 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD PACIFIC COAST BRANCH ANNUAL MEETING AND DINNER, MARCH 29TH. The fourth Annual Meeting and Dinner was held on Friday evening, March 29th, at the Jericho Country Club, with thirty-two in attendance, and was considered to have been the most successful a.nd enthusiastic since its incep- tion. The table was decorated with broad maroon and black ribbons, large silver candelabra holding candles of the same colours, and the floral decorations bordering on the same hue. The gathering proved so interesting that all of the guests remained until it concluded at 12.30 a.m. Of special interest was the presence of F. G. Lewin, who attended the School from 1872 to 1876. He enjoys excellent health, thoroughly enjoyed himself and gave an interesting talk of fifteen minutes. Also attending were Fly- ing Officer Peter H. Douglas of Ancaster, Ontario, who is instructing here on a short course. Squadron Leader D. H. MacCaul and Flying Officer D. M. MacDonald were also present. Unfortunately, President P. T. Rogers, Vice- President A. M. Robertson, and four of the Committee were unable to attend owing to absence from the City, otherwise the attendance would have been a record. In the absence of the President, Mr. H. S. Brock Smith was elected chair- man. An innovation was "Roll Call" at the beginning of the Dinner, starting with F. G. Lewin C1872-763 ranging down to C. A. Walkem C1938-391. Each member arose on call, which introduction brought about a more personal contact and friendliness. Later in the evening each person present was called upon in turn by the Chairman to give a short plateside chat. It was decided again to present a Trophy similar to and for the same purpose as last year. This will be for- warded in the near future. Another unanimous resolution directed the Secretary-Treasurer to present twenty-five dollars to the School to assist in meeting the extraordinary expenses in connection with the 75th Anniversary.

A couple of days I would like to see again were when We decided that, for the honour of the form, the four model lads of the class would have to get themselves caned, or be spanked by the form itself. Admitting the justice of this, they suddenly turned very wicked. Two put off alarm clocks in Latin and owned up, trying not to look out of character. CThat's one bit I can always laugh at.J One set a booby trap for the lights-out master, with the rest of the form four deep under the beds of his dormitory to see the fung and the other spent half the afternoon on the spikes of the gates trying to get pinched climbing over. The masters controlled their astonishment with an effort, Cthat's another bit I could appreciate even better nowl, and, on account of their excellent records, or because they smelt a rat, awarded each of the culprits 1000 lines of Virgil. So we had to spank them after all. I think, now, they appreciated getting into the fellowship of the licked, if only by the back door so to speak. -H. Heaton C05-'09J Sl IF if IF fl A. Duncan Pacaud C87-'89J writes from Chicago:- "It seems words are inadequate to express my affec- tionate reminiscences of dear old T.C.S.

It was quickly decided in Evanston at that time that in- stead of returning to Montreal, Duncan Cmyselfj should enter one of the best institutions for boys in Canada, namely, T.C.S. I was then 145 years old. Now I am 68 next July.

I remember Well when Rev. Broughall arrived to take up his duties as Master, also a little later on Mr. Nightingale, who were both good football players. I can never forget in all fairness the kind treatment accorded me on my arrival by the Rev. C. J. S. Bethune, Headmaster, including Messrs. Nichols, Curry, Montizambert and Cooper, and last but not least, my celebrated fight in the old gymnasium, bare knuckles with friend Detlor of Napanee, who insinuated that the French Canadian lacked loyalty to the British iiagg my answer was to invite him into the gymnasium where I would prove his mistake.

O'Brian C07-'12J has been ap- pointed to command No. 1 Initial Training School on the grounds of the Eglinton Hunt Club in Toronto. Geoff O'Brian entered the Fourth Canadian Mounted Rifles in 1914, and in the fall of 1916 he joined the Royal Flying Corps. After the war he practised law in Toronto. Later he associated himself with the Commercial Flying Club in Toronto and became a test pilot for the De Havilland Com- pany. He became a director of the company and remained as a director until the outbreak of the war. He has been headmaster of the Lower School of St. Andrew's College for the past two years. At the outbreak of war, he was given command of the 114th Squadron at London. When this was broken up to reinforce other units, he was trans- ferred to Trenton Air Base, where he has been in command of the ground training school for officers. We wish him every success in his new command at Toronto. IF F if If if Of G. S. O'Brian C07-'12l and Peter O'Brian C28-'32J, the Globe and Mail wrote editoriallyz " ....... Wing Commander G. S. O'Brian, A.F.C., enlisted again upon the outbreak of the present war and is now officer command- ing No. 1 Initial Training School of the Royal Canadian Air Force, located in the old Eglinton Hunt Club. This school is taking the first group of recruits under the British Com- 80 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD monwealth Air Training Plan, and will have 500 flying per- sonnel within a short time. These eager young men have entered upon their duties with enthusiasm, and their bearing and general conduct have made a distinctly favorable impression upon residents of the district who come in contact with them on and off duty. Their eagerness to fit themselves for the tasks that lie ahead is due in no small measure to the leadership given by Wing Commander O'Brian and his staff. The Wing Commander, a former Head Boy of Trinity College School, was among the first to sign up when the Great War broke out, and went overseas in command of the University of Toronto platoon of the Second Division Cyclists. Like many other young Canadians, he transferred to the Royal Flying Corps in the whiter of 1916. He maintained his interest in flying during the twenty years between, and in 1932 organized the Toronto City Squadron, which was the first Canadian air squadron to go overseas in the present con- flict. One cannot speak too highly of the spirit which prompts men like Wing Commander O'Brian to join up again after doing their bit in the last war. He is an oflicer who maintains the highest traditions of the British ser- vices, and it is not surprising that his son, who is a squa- dron leader in the Royal Air Force at 22, is following in his father's footsteps. Peter O'Brian, the son, attended the Royal Air Force College at Cranwell, graduating at New Year's, 1938, with a sword of honour as the best all- round cadet of this famous school. He was posted to the 26th Squadron, of which he became adjutant, and is now squadron leader, serving somewhere "at the front." iff DK: fl? Ill! if W. G.

My memories have been so strong and pleasant and are always cropping up. At college, most of my essays for a course in English Literature had to do with events in Port Hope-I received an 'excellent' on one dealing with a pillow fight in the Junior School dorm land the after effectsl, probably the only beneiit derived therefrom." fl? fl? fl?

Rovers should be dated 1884, and that the names should not have included C. L. Ingles, but A. C. Allan seated on the top row at the right should have been included, with W. H. Cooper on the extreme right in the second row. The picture of the staff in Dr. Rigby's time should have been dated 1903, not 1913. JAMES STEWART CARTVVRIGHT Word was received on the 17th. of March of the sud- den death, in England, of James Stewart Cartwright, who was at the School from 1890 to 1893, when he entered the services of the Imperial Bank of Canada. In a spirit of high adventure he joined the Klondike rush in 1898, at- 84 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD tempting the inland route, but they failed to reach their goal. With a companion, he remained in the country for a year trapping. In Vancouver he received a letter from Japan sent by his cousin Steven H. Cartwright 11887-931, advising him that a position was available there. His finances being low, he set out for Japan in a 3500-ton ship, the only white man amongst a large number of Orientals, and likely the first to attempt such a passage, under like companionship. On arrival he found that the position had been filled, but later joined the staff of the Shell Oil Company, during this time he was sent by the Company to Moscow, by way of the Trans-Siberian Railway. So highly was he esteemed, and so eminently satisfactory his work, that the Shell Oil Company offered him his choice between a position in London, and the opportunity to open an office in Cape Town, South Africa. He chose the latter, opening an office with a staff of five, and had the supreme satisfaction of seeing the Company grow to a continent- wide organization, with a staff of many thousand. Having reached the company's age-limit, he had thoughts of re- tiring, however the company requested him to remain, but ever mindful of others, he decided that such a step would be unfair to the advancement of younger men, so after 24 years in South Africa, he returned to England and settled in the country. Jim Cartwright very early in life came to realize that a sound, strong body was the foundation of most success in life, and to that end he bent his strong determination and energy. He was one of the strongest boys the School ever had, and one of the finest quarter-backs Canada ever produced. He had acquired a balance, and lack of pre- judice, that few can hope to obtain: self-critical, but rarely so of others, and then kindly and constructive. Such men, in a world so tragically unbalanced, are indeed hard to re- place, and not all the blessings of nature of enormous raw resources ever have in the past, nor will in the future, take the place of character and leadership. . 2-1.. - YGUR MOUTH '4 's'. , n , .

Langmuir, K.C., from the effects of a heart attack, in his Iiftieth year. Mr. Langmuir was a member of the legal firm of Osler, Hoskin Sz Harcourt, and was a director of several important institutions and business organizations. After leaving the School he graduated in arts from the University of Toronto, and then from Osgoode Hall. He was created a K.C. in 1936. Mr. Langmuir was a director of the Homewood Sana- torium, Guelph, the Superheater Company, Limited, and Max Mayer and Company of Canada, Limited. A Mason, he was a past master of Ionic Lodge. He was a member of Holy Trinity QAnglicanl Church. He belonged to a number of clubs, including Toronto Golf, the Empire, and Canadian. B. B. 0. FRANCIS It is with great regret that we report the death of B. B. O. f"Brick"J Francis, after many years of ill health. At School he was a good athlete. He won the tive-mile race, he was a footballer, and an expert bowler in cricket. Francis was a prefect in his last year.. It is recalled that he did yeoman service the night of the 1895 ire, and especially that he routed out some heavy sleepers who were in danger for a while in the north Wing of the building. Our sincere sympathy is extended to his brother, Dr. W. W. Francis C88-'95J, of Montreal.

EDITORIAL MUSIC It has been truly said that music hath charms to soothe the savage breast. Our modern age has added the proof of another equally pointed aphorism: "Music C'?l hath charms to rouse the savage breast." For Glenn Miller and others of his stamp have con- tributed to turn back the musical clock several million years for a great percentage of American youth just such as the T.C.S. dwellers. They have added a new species to the genera of the entomologist by styling themselves jitter- bugs. However, they differ from most other members of that branch of animal life in that they cannot be sprayed or swatted with any considerable degree of success. One of their inherent and universal characteristics is that to them anything bearing the name of Beethoven or Bach or Liszt or Handel, or any other that is dear beyond measure to the true lover of music, is branded with a stigma of repugnance. Whether this attitude is genuine or merely affected, it is an unwholesome trait that condemns the jitterbug to the derision, the pity, and even the con- tempt of their older and wiser associates. 2 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD They of the older and wiser group may well be accused, especially in extreme cases, of narrowness, since they are rather prone to consider anything in the modern vein noxious and jitterbuggyg but their failing is nowhere near to being as great as that of the young savages. For in spite of the efforts of Mr. Miller and his ardent admirers, there is such a thing as good dance music. You don't hear it a great deal except, oddly enough, on the Hit Parade. But if the lovers of music have no breadth of mind, those of music C?J have no soul. They either cannot or will not feel the throbbing appeal, the inimitable loveliness of an "Ave Maria", a soprano voice, or a Beethoven symphony. They have no feeling, no soul, and where music is con- cerned, not even a mind. Only a body. For the appeal of music C'?J is simple, direct and phys- ical. It reacts on the nervous system to produce a quick- ening of the heart and an exhilaration. It does, in short, the same things that it has been doing to our half-evolved cousins in the deep jungles for countless ages: it makes them turn themselves into hideous asses by jumping about in the most weird and unseemly contortions imaginable. The mere beat of the tom-tom has nothing of beauty to it at all. To complete the clothing of our throw-back to the primitive in the garb of something modern, the ingenious creators of music C?J have added the machine-made mon- strosity of the brass section. This is a device intended to produce sound effects comparable land unfavorably, at thatl to those of a boiler factory, a locomotive whistle, or a plumbers' convention. The sum total of the thing is hideous beyond compare. And they have the gall to call it music. It is to be hoped that the comparatively new attitude of liking only music VFD and having nothing to do with music is merely a failing resulting from the deficiencies of the adolescent fof which our parents tell us muchl and TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 3 that on attaining maturity the victims of the craze will see the light. Meanwhile, our sound advice to parents is to lay floors, not of hardwood, but of reinforced steel, so that our young savages who have not yet emerged from their own childhood or that of the genus homo, may play "jungle" without doing excessive damage. And remember that there Was, and even still is, good dance music, so let us pray that once again it will come into its own when youth has completed its evolution. -K.G.P.

He pointed out that in it we may find the illustration of a principle which runs through the whole course of human life, the secret of all change and all progress. Whenever we pass on to something new, some new stage of life for in- stance, something dies, and something is born out of it. The schoolboy passes out into a new life born out of the death of this one: and other stages and changes will fol- low in their turn afterwards. Two things have their part at such a time-regret and thankfulness. For the former, if it is of the right kind, will teach us to face bravely our past failures, so that the new stage of life may begin purified: while from the latter may be born high resolu- tions, and the determination to give something in return for what we have received. The change is in itself an opportunity. He urged those who are leaving to keep the best of what Trinity had given them, a sense of responsi- bility and a sense of service, and to remember that the School asks of them, not only to "love the brotherhood, but to honour all men." - 1- At the Anniversary and Memorial Service on June 2nd, the collection amounted to S214.00. This record collection was given as a thankoffering, and it will be de' voted to the Chapel building fund. At Speech Day the collection amounted to 3127.143 it also is being devoted to the Chapel building fund which now comes to 31,949.51 i TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD CONTRIBUTIONS DUNKIRK The sunset turned the sea to blood, As hate had turned the land, 5 Where green was red, and grass was mud, Beneath Destruction's hand: Where God and Peace and Freedom vied With Death and Spite and Hell, Where slaves of Nazi tyrants died, And sons of freemen fell. But though he mourn the many slain, The sun could set content: He'd seen an army crushed in vain, A spirit yet unbent: For English tommies dauntless stood, Though beaten, ever brave, To save the Wounded while they could, Themselves they would not save. All day t'ward home the ships progressed 'Mid cannons' deadly showerg All day the heroes stood hard-pressed, Each man to wait his hour. And when the last had left, there stayed, Inscribed in blood, a story: The price that freemen gladly paid To save their England's glory. -K. .i1T. G.

It is a fact, however, that their contributions to the life of the School live on long after they have left. Because of their special responsibilities, the Prefects, Seniors, and especially the Head Prefect, are more in the public eye than any other boys and any shortcomings are therefore more noticeable. It is a very high and well deserved tribute to be able to say that this year's Head Prefect, J. W. C. Langmuir, has fulfilled the many duties of his office without short- coming, undertaking his varied tasks with enthusiasm, understanding, confidence and skill. It is never easy for a boy to fill a post which requires him to exercise control over his fellows, but Langmuir showed much wisdom and courage in his dealings with others, winning their whole hearted respect and co-opera- tion. He thoroughly earned the acclaim which the School gave him when it was announced that he had won the Bronze Medal. Well done. 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 7 LETTER FROM GROUP CAPTAIN HUME The Masters and Boys, Trinity College School, Port Hope, Ontario. How am I to thank you for your embarrassing and kind gift of the Salver which was presented me at your Speech Day ceremonies on June 15th? It was a very gracious act and one that I am afraid I quite inadequately acknowledged in my remarks made on the spur of the moment at the time. My associations with the School in the lectures and subsequently, culminating in this climactic moment have been nothing but a delight to me and I feel that the feel- ing of friendship that surrounded me on all my visits was in itself more than a just reward for efforts which, after all, were both my duty and my enjoyment. When this mess of war is past, I trust that our liaison may continue, as your acceptance of me has bred a very warm corner in my heart for Trinity College School. Thank you. Yours very sincerely, D. C. M. HUME. Group Captain, Royal Canadian Air Force. NEW HOUSE TROPHY A very fine trophy has been given for competition in all branches of athletics between the Houses. It is called the Gavin Ince Langmuir trophy, and it has been won this year by Brent House. 8 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD SPEECH DAY When the Lieutenant Governor, accompanied by Mrs. Matthews, arrived on Speech Day, he was received by the Cadet Corps as a guard of honour with the royal salute. His Honour spent some time inspecting the guard and chatting with the officers. He and Mrs. Matthews then went into Trinity House, where the Staff and their wives were presented. An interval during which the road from the houses to the gym was filled with wildly scurrying figures hastening to turn in uniforms preceded the Speech Day service in the School Chapel. The Primate, Archbishop Owen, was pre- sent and pronounced the concluding prayers and benedic- tion. Dr. Snell acted as the Archbishop's chaplain. There was no sermon. At the prize-giving in the gymnasium, Archbishop Owen presided. Also on the platform were the Lieutenant Governor, Colonel Mackenzie Waters, his A.D.C., the Head- master, and five other members of the Governing Body, Col. J. W. Langmuir, Provost Cosgrave, Mr. R. C. H. Cassels, Mr. J. B. MacKinnon and Mr. G. B. Strathy. After a brief expression of his pleasure in being pre- sent, the Primate called upon the Headmaster for his re- port. This is printed below. The Primate thanked Mr. Ketchum for the words of faith and courage in his address, so difficult to speak yet so necessary in these hard days, and then added his wel- come to the Lieutenant Governor, whose speech is also printed below. Before the prizes were distributed, the Headmaster explained that only Form and Special prizes were being given this year. All subject prizes had been replaced by certificates, the money saved being voluntarily given by the winners towards the upkeep of a bed in the Canadian Red Cross Hospital at Cliveden, England.

The Headmaster also revealed that the donor of the Jubilee Exhibition, anonymous for so many years, had been the late E. Douglas Armour, K.C. In the course of the prize-giving, there was a pleasant ceremony when a silver salver was presented to Group Captain Hume in appreciation of his very valuable series of lectures to the Cadet Corps last year. Group Captain Hume thanked the School, but insisted that he had already been rewarded, because he had "had all the fun in the world" telling the corps members what he knew about aviation. He electrified the assembly by suggesting as their guiding principle for the hard years ahead his free translation of the Royal Air Force motto. To the Air Force men, he said, Per Ardua ad Astra means "Get up and get on With it!" THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOIVS ADDRESS In his speech the Lieutenant Governor said: "I congratulate the authorities of this great School upon the beautiful surroundings, and the splendid plant and equipment you are possessed of. But even more I felici- tate your Governors upon the academic background you have so carefully built up in the years which have passed, and which provides so much driving force and momentum for the present duties and means so much for the future. To that splendid combination of academic background, complete with ideal surroundings, you are proudly privi- leged to add the utter loyalty and devotion to King and Country of both educators and students, which down the years have developed a tradition of inestimable value, and which is vastly helpful to those who teach, as Well as to the young men who pursue their studies here. "I would like to bring a word of congratulations and 1G TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD encouragement to the Headmaster, and your excellent staff, on the academic results of Trinity College School. It means much to the Province of Ontario, and indeed to the whole of Canada and beyond, to have an institution of this kind, where standards of education and deportment are so high. I am sure the Minister of Education would desire me to say that his department is pleased with the teaching pro- gramme, so well carried out here, and that there is no sug- gestion whatever of change by the educational leaders of the Province on the splendid work of your staff. "Before attempting to say a word to the student body upon this important occasion, I desire to express the ap- preciation of the Board of Governors of McMaster Uni- versity for the kind Words of Dr. Orchard as written in 'The Record' in reference to the use of the Woodstock College buildings after your disastrous fire. I beg to as- sure your Governors that it was a great pleasure to us of McMaster to be helpful in this way to your splendid School, and to have you occupy the premises for two years as men- tioned by Dr. Ochard, was an inspiration to us, as it was I am pleased to think, helpful to you. "The Armistice of 1918 is broken and as part of the British Empire we find ourselves again in deadly strife for those things we hold dearer than life. Those valiant hearts who died that we might live in freedom, made a noble sacri- Iice, and I am profoundly moved by the knowledge that already over 150 of your graduates have taken their place in the post of danger. "The theory is sometimes advanced that we are wrong in sending our young volunteers to do battle for our cause, that another method of selection would be preferable to that which we now employ of allowing our young gradu- ates to represent us. I think our present system of mobilization is good, because it is the first duty of those who have so many special privileges, to lead our brave men to the battlefront. Our cause is just, and when we give our best, as Trinity College did in the first great war, and TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 11 is again doing in this conflict, we are discharging our duty to our King and Country, which We could do in no other way. "In the Empire's time of need, it is not only a patriotic duty, but a priceless privilege, to offer ourselves in any capacity to the service of the State. This the graduates of Trinity College School are doing, to the great encourage- ment of the public. "I am sure the courses of study and the Way of life in this great School are looking toward that perfect state, which We all long for, but if We cannot reach that ideal condition, we can at least idealize the realisms of life, and so make the World better for our having passed this way. "Albert Edward Wiggin says-'Perfection as some state of unchanging bliss, is not only impossible, but un- desirable, but that man's very nature, the going toward it, the striving for it, the adventure, the excitement, the romance of the search, is the very perfection that he seeks. " 'The Holy Grail is unattainable, and would bring no joy if it were found. " 'To become perfectly educated therefore is im- possible, but to try to become educated, that is education! "Therefore your graduates in large numbers, in taking up arms again for the defence o-f those spiritual values which are dearer to us than life itself, are reaching out and up for perfection, through the hard road of duty and sacri- fice. This course, I am sure, carries the approval of the Governors and staff of this and other great schools in Can- adag no other course is possible, and the young life of Trinity College School would be the last to take any other road. "To the parents and undergraduates, and old boys, who are present, I would like to say that I was greatly heartened as I read the Words of the Archbishop of Canter- bury a few Weeks ago, spoken in the presenceof Their Ma- jesties, and their ministers of state. The Archbishop said- 'The centuries rebuke fears and calm anxieties of this hour.' 12 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD He was doubtless thinking of King Henry V. who wished 'not one man more' at Agincourt, and whose remains lie be- hind the high altar at Westminster. "And of Queen Elizabeth, who met the Armada's challenge with 'face and fears of a woman, but with heart and stomach of a man,' and she also lies buried in the Abbey. "So our part in the terrible drama is clear. In cour- age we must keep our heart and in strength lift up our hand. In this way the hope of the centuries which have passed, finds expression in the red wine of life which pulsates through the veins of your graduates. The future of your country is in your hands. You must do your full part to maintain and even enhance the moral courage of the coming generation. This you can best do by mirror- ing through your own lives those high principles of honour and integrity and human understanding which are the very foundation stones of this College. "Then I have another reason for pleasure in coming to your Speech Day, and that is, to meet the boys who have won the prizes, and not less to meet those who have not won. I have a personal feeling of support for the boys who do not win prizes, because it reminds me of my own experiences in school-always applauding the winners. It was my lot, my good fortune, I really think, to generally bring out the best in my opponents at school, whom I might better describe as my contemporaries, and thus bring upon myself many a sound beating in sports, as well as in aca- demic results. "The winning of a prize should mean a thrill for any boy, and of course it is magnificent for the parents, but the wonderful thing about life is to prepare for the new condi- tions and surprises which are just around the corner for all of us. "The experience of Christopher Columbus comforts me: when he set out he did not know where he was going, when he arrived he did not know where he was, and when TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 13 he returned he did not know where he had been. Some- times a boy at school may feel just like that, and if so, keep up your courage like Columbus, for after all you have a great new world of your own to discover when you say goodbye to Trinity College School. "Recently I attended a prize day and saw good books presented to the students, and I am looking forward with great anticipation to seeing the boys who receive these books today. To see a boy walk off with a good dictionary, or a copy of the Pilgrim's Progress, or a copy of the Bible, delights me, because those boys hold under their arms some of the world's greatest treasures. "When last in Toronto, Lord Baldwin said that the English Bible did more to elevate the British people in the last four hundred years than any other agency. "A story is told of General Grant in the American Civil War, who was writing by the candlelight in the corner of his headquarters room in a cottage. A number of young Staff Officers were around the fire, when one said to an- other, tell us that story again, there are no ladies present. General Grant spoke and said, 'Don't forget there are gentlemen present! "My last word to you young men who wear the Trinity College badge so proudly is 'don't forget you are the gentle- men of Trinity College School'." .. ..l.L.l.1.l 14 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE HEADMASTEIVS REPORT Your Grace, Your Honour, Ladies and Gentlemen: On behalf of the School I welcome you all most sincerely to our Seventy-fifth Speech Day. This has been a year of seventy-fifths, culminating with the celebration of two weeks ago when nearly three htmdred old boys returned, boys who had entered the School from the year 1869 down to only a few years ago. Such a gathering brings home to us the large and far-flung family which is T.C.S., for these Old Boys came from all over Canada and as far south as Florida and messages were sent from many differ- ent parts of the world, all with one purpose, to pay tribute to the School which they said had done its share in form- ing their characters and starting them on their way of life. Like most families we are not all clever, not all leaders, not always perfect in our conduct, not even all handsome, but we have become aware that the life of a small com- munity like a boarding school, just as the life of a larger community like a nation, consists of the sum of the con- tributions of every member of that community, and it varies as those contributions are whole hearted and self- less, or half hearted and self-centered. In this manner we hope that T.C.S. is, in its small way, serving the common weal. As a School we are proud to have with us today the leaders of Church and State in this province: His Grace is a member of our Governing Body and our ofiicial visitor and he is therefore no stranger, we welcome him as one of our own and because of the most important office he fills so well. His Honor IS paying his first visit to T.C.S., and we are indeed grateful to him for finding time to come to us when he is pressed with so many duties. I am sure we have all marvelled at the gracious and capable way in which His Honour and Mrs. Matthews have undertaken their arduous responsibilities at this most trying time, they are adding new laurels to their important ofiice. We TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 15 welcome you, Sir, first as the representative of His Majesty the King in this Province, and we welcome you for yourself as a man who serves his fellow men. This school year has been passed under the constant cloud of war, and because the present time is so poignantly full of crisis, school affairs tend to become very minute in their importance, I am therefore going to give only a sum- mary of those happenings which seem worth mentioning. In September we 'found ourselves with fewer boys, but what we lost in quantity We made up in quality, and in my opinion We have an exceptionally fine lot of lads in the School today, like all human beings they have their ups and downs, but the ups far outnumber the downs and the good stuff in them is not difficult to find. For the first time in our history, and again owing to the war, We have had boys from eight different English schools, and they seem to have adapted themselves very Well to our life. We cannot say we have had an unblemished health record, for We have been visited with chicken pox, measles, and a few mumps and whoops, but the medical staff check- ed the spread of the infections and We escaped rather light- ly. A morning physical training class and breathing ex- ercises for the Whole School was introduced this year and has proved beneficial, this with the regular P.T. periods, gym. work, and games insures sufficient healthy exercise. School work has progressed satisfactorily, again for the first time in our history our classes have been inspect- ed by Government inspectors and We have been given a clean bill of health scholastically. Some of our boys do very well in their matriculation examinations and later at the university, as witness the thirty-eight university scholarships and prizes Won since 1933, but the majority are not geniuses and we are satisned if they work steadily and have considerably better results than mere passes. Our Cadet Corps has done more than keep up to standard, for most of us feel that some of the drill this year was the best we have seen. Much credit is due to Mr. 16 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Batt, the instructor, and to Cadet Squadron Leader Lang- muir and his officers for their unflagging zeal in condition- ing raw material. Air Vice Marshal McKean told us we were well up to the standard of the best English public Schools in this department, and Major General Williams told the boys that he had given them a very close scrutiny and found them 100 per cent. In shooting we have won the Canadian Junior Championship, we came first in On- tario and second by a decimal point in Canada in the Im- perial Challenge Shield shooting competitiong two boys will receive the King's Bronze Medal for making scores of 99 out of a possible 100. . Several Senior boys have conducted Life Saving class- es and only nine boys in the School have not won certi- ficates. Phin, the Editor of the School Magazine, The Record, and Mr. Parr, the adviser, deserve special praise for the work they have done this year, it has been a heavy one for them, but their efforts have had a wider circulation than ever before and from all accounts they have been fully appreciated. The choir, too, under Mr. Cohu's capable direction, has fulfilled its many duties exceedingly well and may I especially congratulate the Junior School members for tackling so much and doing it so well. Mrs. Wright and her staff deserve special mention, for the commissariat department has been more heavily taxed this year than ever before, but there has been no hitch and no one went foodless. We have been again the fortunate recipients of many gifts: the Ladies' Guild have helped us in numerous ways but perhaps particularly by redecorating the Chapel and providing us with a valuable bursary: Mr. R. P. Jellett has taken out a life insurance policy in favour of the School, and Mr. G. B. Strathy has turned in for cancellation a num- ber of School bonds, Mrs. Lawrence Baldwin has made most generous gifts to the Library, and other donors have r-v 'adoH 'M 'D 'Aalugd 'D 'Q 'JJEH 'O 'auaaxg '3 'M-:may Juoxd 'wg 'S 'magfl 'allfuauxos 'W 'D 'sauof 'Q 'H 'V 'LuuqJoqug83gH -W 1.1 'uolmqxefxx 'M 'H 'Ja1sewpeaH aql-:lucy bpvg LI-IDIS!

I am sorry to say that there will be several changes in our staff next year. Mr. Hadley Armstrong who has been assisting Mr. Batt, has already joined the Air Force, and Mr. Page is in the process of joining the same branch of the service. Mr. Brack, who came out from England to rejoin our staff for a year is now planning to return to his country. We wish them all the best of luck and thank them sincerely for their many contributions to our life. Mr. Schaefer, our Art Master, has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for a year's study in the United States and we shall miss his weekly visits. Some one hundred and sixty of our Old Boys are now on Active Service and the School is once again deeply proud of its sons for their quick response to the country's call. We are all of us in these days under a pall of uncertainty and suspense at the turn which the conflict has taken and there will doubtless be many dark days ahead. Surely we as free men can meet our sorrows and our dangers and overcome them more capably and lastingly than the mec- hanised and heartless masses which oppose us, knowing that our present trials are the results of holding too long to an ideal based on international satisfaction and content in a world where large groups were being fomented to a delirious state of international dissatisfaction and dis- content. I like a quotation we have printed in the current number of The Record: "For, after all, it is primarily free- dom upon which civilization thrives-freedom of individual enterpise and freedom above all of the spirit. To defend such freedom is to defend civilizationg to vindicate and establish it is to safeguard the indispensable foundation for a healthy world-culture. Civilization can put forth some fruits and flowers even amid poverty and danger, even in the heart of desolation, if it is but freeg but it Withers and shrivels if the soul of mankind is held in slavery. 18 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD "That is why the war of the democracies, dreadful as must be its cost, is after all a war for civilization, and must command sympathy and support wherever men value light and progress. Civilization loves peace, but there is a time when it demands battle, and its truest lovers are then not those who soar above the conflict, but those who bare their breasts to the sword." These are not easy days for any of us, least of all perhaps for those just leaving School and beginning life in a wider sphere. It is my belief that days of ease have come to an end for a very long time, and if we can realize that and act accordingly we shall profit immensely from it. "Age Quod Agis", do what you do with all your might, and see that it is worth doing and done well-There can be no better rule of life. Trials and tribulations are the fire that makes the steel-but there must be metal there, which is courage. To the boys who are leaving I can think of no better message today than these words which I hope they have read: "The gloom of the world is but a shadowy behind it, yet within our reach is joy, Life is so generous a giver, but we, judging its gifts by their coverings, cast them away as ugly, or heavy, or hard. Remove the cover- ing and you will find beneath it a living splendor. Every- thing we call a trial, a sorrow, or a duty, believe me, the angel's hand is there, the gift is there and the wonder of an overshadowing presence. Life is so full of meaning and purpose, so full of beauty beneath its covering that you will find earth but cloaks your heaven. Courage then to claim it, that is all. But courage you have and the knowl- edge that we are pilgrims together, wending through un- known country our way home. And so I greet you with profound esteem, and with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks and the shadows flee away." 1 TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD 19 SENIOR SCHOOL PRIZES GENERAL PROFICIENCY Sixth Form- The Chancel1or's Prize ............................................

The first game was against the G. Whitaker Club, of Peterborough. Rain in the previous weeks had kept both teams short of practice, and there was a desperate struggle for runs. The visiting club won by the narrowest possible margin, one run! Toronto C. C. fielded quite a strong team, and the School found Magee's bowling difficult to deal with. They were all out for 64, Magee having 7 wickets for 24. Hender- son and Croft gave the club a good start, after one wicket had fallen cheaply, and the total ultimately reached 105. Finley was the most successful bowler. Against the Kappa Alpha XI. the School batting show- ed some improvement, Somerville made 26 and three others reached double figures. But after making a respectable total of 105, the team could not muster the required strength in attack to deal with two stalwarts of former T.C.S. elevens, Charlie Seagram and Ed. Cayley, and the visitors had nearly fifty runs to spare when play closed. The first of the School matches was against S.A.C., who batted first and made 116. Lambert took 4 wickets for 18. The School innings opened badly, as the first four batsmen all failed. Then a good partnership between Parr and Pochon made things look more hopeful, but only Somer- ville joined them in double figures, and the innings ended at 77. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 27 The match against Ridley was disastrous. Graves was dropped when he had scored only a few runs and went on to make a century. Against the Ridley total of 216 for 5, the School could only muster 58 all out. The U.C.C. match was a thrilling encounter. The visitors batted lirst and on a drying wicket were in trouble all the time. Porter and Urquhart contributed between them fifty-one of the seventy-one runs, the latter's 36 being a particularly fine effort when runs were hard to make. The task before the School did not look too formidable, but again the opening batsmen failed and two more were soon out. Then another Parr and Pochon partnership sent hope mounting, as they took the score steadily up. After reach- ing 32 by steady and confident batting, Parr mistimed one from Urquhart, and not long afterward Pochon was bowled after making his invariable 15. Somerville added half a dozen runs, and the match reached the stage where only six runs were needed, with three wickets still to go. U.C.C. declined to become discouraged, however, and a combina- tion of fine captaincy, good bowling and keen fielding dis- posed of the three wickets with a margin of three runs! SCHOOL vs. G.

CRICKET fFr0m "Athletic Life", Aug. 18951 In the old days at Weston and Port Hope cricket was played under difficulties-poor pitches, bumpy ground and bad out-field, but in spite of all, it flourished, thanks to the fostering care of such men as the present headmaster and the late Rev. F. A. Bethune his brother, H. I. Camp- bell, W. Carter, and later on P. Perry and E. L. Curry. The first contest with U.C.C. was in 1867, resulting in a Waterloo for the School, who lost by an innings and 176 runs. The game was not revived, except for a junior match in 1868, until 1872, when the School were again de- feated, though in 1873 they were able to turn the tables on U.C.C. and the match has been the great School fixture every year since then. In all 27 matches have been play- ed, of which T.C.S. has won 14, U.C.C. 10, while three have TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 33 been drawn. A very creditable record when all is con- sidered. Year by year the fixture list has been increased until it now includes eleven fixtures, most of them against strong clubs, such as Toronto, Rosedale, Trinity University, Peter- borough, in addition to the two inter-school matches, and a game with the " Old Boys". There also used to be a team of T.C.S. Rovers, who had a tour during the first week or fortnight of July, and were usually a match for any eleven whom they met. Of late years, however, the tour has been abandoned for several reasons, but it is to be hoped that next year may once more see a team of Rovers in the field, who will be able to Worthily uphold the honor of the T.C.S. red and black. A goodly number of the cricketers of Ontario owe their skill in the "king of games" to the coaching at T.C.S. from Norley, Woodcock, Houldsworth and others. It was at Port Hope that D. W. Saunders, A. C. Allan, W. W. Jones, the two Martins, W. H. Cooper, K. H. Cameron, G. H. P. Grout, D. M. Rogers, E. S. Senkler, H. J. Tucker, and a long list that we could give, first learnt how to wield the willow and bowl the ball. More than one member of old T.C.S. elevens hold a high position in the profession he has chosen, notably Dr. Wm. Osler of John Hopkins' Uni- versity, E. D. Armour, Q.C., H. Abbott, Q.C., Rev. E. C. Cayley and W. H. Merritt, while the British army claims several others. Since its establishment at Port Hope, the cricket ground has been gradually increased and improved, until it would be difficult to find a better wicket on any Canadian ground, and when, in time, the outfield has been levelled and improved the ground will be second to none in Canada. It is beautifully situated in the large playing grounds just west of the School, on a hill overlooking the blue waters of Lake Ontario, and if there is a breath of air stirring on a hot summer's day it will be found there. The disastrous fire of February 9th destroyed the School, though it left 34: TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the gymnasium intact, but she is rising from her ashes, phoenix-like, and with great rapidity, and a beautiful build- ing, well-fitted and equipped with the latest ideas in school buildings and sanitation will be found ready for the boys when they return in the middle of September next. This year, despite many difficulties and the want of a professional, the T.C.S. eleven has acquitted itself in an extraordinary manner. Of eleven matches on the pro- gramme, no less than ten were won, most of them by hand- some majoritiesg in fact the School scored 1173 runs to 764 made by their opponents, while their average per wicket was 9.4 to 4.6 of their opponents,which speaks volumes for their fielding and bowling. The most creditable victories won by them were those over a fairly strong Toronto team including Goldingham, Cooper, Collins and others, Rose- dale, ftwicel 3 and Trinity University, to which the brilliant victory over Upper Canada College, the first for ten years on the U.C.C. grounds, formed a fitting conclusion. S. S. DuMoulin was the captain and he was well back- ed up in every department of the game by a very hard- working team, he played several excellent innings, notably 38 not out vs. Deseronto and 46 not out vs. Toronto, and had an average of 21.3. He received able assistance from Tucker, whose 58 vs. Millbrook, 34 vs. U.C.C., and 44 vs. the "Old Boys", marked him as a batsman of good capa- bilities, a reputation which he fully bore out a few weeks ago in Philadelphia. MacGregor, Strathy, Henderson, Harvey and later on Thorne gave a good account of them- selves. In bowling, the brunt of the work fell on Tucker and Francis, and though the former had the better average, we consider that Francis as a bowler is the more deadly, he took 71 wickets at a cost of 5.6 runs, while Tucker's 66 cost only 5.2. Thorne and Harvey were the two first change bowlers, and though seldom called upon, did not disappoint the expectations formed of them, and should both be very useful next year. Behind the wickets Strathy kept up his TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 35 reputation and in time should do very well while Tucker. Macgregor, Rogers, Duggan and Walker all deserve men- tion for their work in the field. Taken as a whole, the season was the most successful in the School's history and must be a great source of satisfaction to all interested in cricket at T.C.S. On the last day of the term, the Headmaster presented the average bat, given by Messrs. H. A. Wilson Sz Co., fwho supplied the School with most excellent material this sea- sonl, and a special bat for his innings vs. Deseronto and Toronto, to DuMouling the bat for the bowling average. presented by P. Perry, Esq., to Tucker, the ball for field- ing to Strathy, and a special ball to Francis for his fine performance of 12 wickets for 42 runs vs. Rosedale. In addition to the above the members of the School presented a handsome cup to Mr. Watson, the Secretary, which show- ed how much they appreciated the efforts which he has made towards keeping up the "noble game" at the School. We hope that cricket may long flourish at Trinity College Schoolg and We feel sure that not only in sports, but in the more serious Work of life, the School will fiourish and add to her already high reputation, which is, in so large a measure due to Rev. C. J. S. Bethune, the head- master, Who, ever since he took the reins in 1870, has been President of the club and taken as keen an interest in cricket as any one of the boys themselves. QIt is interesting to note .that the Duggan mentioned in this account came to the School for the reunion on June lst. and left his old cricket bat as a. memento.J 36 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD SWIMMING MEET 100 Yds.

The last few weeks of term were as usual very crowded with the end of term events and unfortunately much un- pleasant weather. In spite of this, however, we were able to work in most of our cricket games and picnics. Two cricket matches had to be cancelled because of the out- break of measlesg the first with Selwyn House and the second with Ridley. To these two schools we tender our regrets for being unable to entertain them. The highlight of the term of course was the Old Boys weekend of June first and second. The Junior School first eleven played a Fathers' match and with the help of several Old Boys who we confess were not parents of J. S. boys, the Fathers were able to eke out a victory. Four Old Boys have sons in the Junior School and they were all present on June first, three of them playing in the Fathers' match. We were indeed glad to welcome them and the other parents who were able to get down on that day. The J. S. first cricket eleven had quite a good season winning two games, drawing one, and losing another. The second eleven played two matches, winning the first and losing the second. A summary of their latter games ap- pears elsewhere in this number. Other end of term festivities have included a dinner party for the Junior School Choir at the Lakeview Hotel, Cobourg, in honour of the Choir distinction day. The annual School spring picnic was also held at Sylvan Glen between showers on June Hfth. Mr. Cohu entertained the Choir at a picnic on the West beach on the occasion of the choir "whole" on June 13th. A number of private picnics were also engineered on different Sundays, chief of which TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 39 was that provided by Mr. and Mrs. Harry Symons for the School Cricket Eleven on June 9th. Mr. and Mrs. Symons have several times entertained our first teams and their kind hospitality has been much appreciated. JUNIOR SCHOOL PRIZES GENERAL PROFICIENCY FORM III.

Jellett's Speech at the 75th Anniversary Dinner: Cobourg, June lst., 1940. Gentlemen :- I second this toast eagerly and enthusiastically be- cause I believe that Trinity College School is one of the finest things We have in Canada. It provides not only a sound education but a way of life in which boys learn to live together in a miniature world of their own. Association with others tends to rub the rough corners off a boy and to make him understand the necessity for give and take and for conforming to the general mould in order to form part of a social order, much as all are required to do in later life. I have not found any better description of what we should aim at in education at T.C.S. than Ramsay Macdonald's Words- "The educated man is a man with certain subtle, spiritual qualities which make him calm in ad- versity, happy when alone, just in his dealings, rational, and sane in the fullest meaning of that Word in all the affairs of his life." As Well as scholarship in the ordinary sense, boys at a school like this should attain an all-round proficiency in sports which not only improves their physical develop- ment but should stand them in good stead throughout 44 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD their lives. Properly used, such proficiency should con- stitute a form of health insurance, and enable them to match the cares of life with hours of keen enjoyment and relaxation. A. C. Benson, who was for many years a master at Eton and a competent athlete, realized this but warned against over-emphasis on proficiency in sports. He said that he did not want to see games diminished, or played with less keenness but desired to see them duly subordin- ated. He thought it should not be considered slightly eccentric for a boy to care very much about his work, or to take an interest in books. He wished it to be recognized at schools that the one quality that was admirable was keenness, and that it was admirable in whatever depart- ment it was displayed. I am sure our Headmaster agrees with this. Under his thoroughly capable and enlightened management T.C.S. will meet all its problems successfully and will grow in efiiciency, in service to the country and in its influence on our public life. At this Anniversary we pledge ourselves to keep it constantly in our memory, to support it in all its 611- deavours, and to constitute in ourselves a background of in- terest and advocacy which will assure the splendid future it so richly deserves. I have spoken of work in school, and sports, and will end as DuMaurier ended his famous novel "Tri1by"- "A little work, a little play to keep us going, and so good- day! A little warmth, a little light Of love's bestowing-and so good night! A little fun to match the sorrow Of each day's growing and so good morrow! A little trust that when we die We reap our sowing and so goodbye!" J. W. C.

Judge Dennistoun was in the chair, and a message of greeting was sent to the gathering of Old Boys at the School for the 75th. Anniversary. W. Trevor Gwyn C95-'96D was elected President for the incoming year, and Sydney P. Cox C06-'08J, Secretary- Treasurer. THE l908 TEAM The first championship football team of 1908 was re- markably well represented at the reunion on June 1st. Peter Campbell, the Captain of that famous team had pre- sent from his original line-up, Jack Maynard, George Laing, Stn Macaulay, and Buck Pearce. The 1908 team had a record which will most likely never be equalled. They won thirteen games with no losses and ended up by beating the Lindsay O.R.F.U. cham- pions right in Lindsay. The whole School went up to see the team play U.C.C. in Toronto and never will boys who sw that game forget Pete Campbell's fifty yard run, Jack Maynard's kicking, running and catching, George Laing's tackling and running and the line work of Styx Macaulay and Buck Pearce. The passing plays between Maynard and Campbell thrilled everyone and soon became the main- stay of the Varsity attack. After leaving T.C.S., Pete Campbell and Jack May- nard captained the Varsity team in successive years, George Laing captained McGill, and Styx Macaulay captained R.M.C., then in the Intercollegiate. In one year, 1912, T.C.S. Old Boys captained three of the four Intercollegiate teams, and there were at least six members of the 1908 team playing in the Intercollegiate. ' It was Pete Campbell who made the suggestions that the captains of the previous first teams round up their 46 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD former team mates for the Anniversary celebrations and the idea had excellent results. The members of the 1908 team Were:- Full Back-Reg. Dempster, Rossland, B.C. Halves-Walter Taylor, Edmonton, Jack Maynard, Strat- ford, Carew Martin, Victoria.

Middles-Pack Harris, Gore's Landing, Max Reid, Van- couver. Outsides--Geo. Laing, Windsor, Geo. Ross, Lethbridge. INSURANCE FOR ENDOWMENT Several Old Boys have suggested that one way to raise something in the nature of an endowment for the School would be to have Old Boys take out life insurance, making the School their beneficiary. One Old Boy has already done this. Particulars, if wanted, may be had from the Headmaster, or Secretary of the O.B.A. OLD BRASSES FOUND Junior School boys have been doing some digging in the field behind their building and have unearthed several brasses that were in the old Chapel and plainly show marks of the 1928 fire. One commemorates Mrs. C. J. S. Bethune. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 47 GEORGE D. PERRY, C69-'74j Mr. Perry was the Senior Old Boy at the reunion on June 1st and 2nd, everyone who saw him then and heard his witty speeches will be interested in reading this revealing outline of his careerj. A short time after I left T.C.S. in 1874 I got a job in my home town, Whitby, Ontario, but my good father thought it "infra dig." for his son to be sweeping out a store, cleaning lamps, carrying bars of iron and kegs of nails, so he secured a position for me in one of the Banks. I liked the change and the accounting work. I entered the bank in November, 1877, and in exactly a month was made teller, with several thousand dollars in my charge. Later on I was "tired" from the bank solely for the reason I got married when my salary was not what the bank thought it should be, and, properly, the rule of the bank was carried out. In 1880 I secured the position of cashier in a Rail- way called the Credit Valley, a name that is now very little known. It was being built between Toronto and St. Thomas with branches to Fergus, Elora and Orangeville. It may be interesting to mention that, aside from the Presi- dent, there were only six employees in the General office. and that the Superintendent, James Ross, was knighted at a later date, as also was Herbert S. Holt, who was draughts- man in the office. The Secretary-Treasurer was Henry Suckling, who afterwards was the General Treasurer of the Canadian Pacific Railway. I am rather proud of the com- pany I was keeping at that time. Just a year after I took the Credit Valley position the Company went into bank- ruptcy and all employees were told to look for other jobs. I happened to be the first to get one, which was assistant bookkeeper in the oflice of the Dominion Telegraph Com- pany. And I was certainly a "bum" bookkeeper as I had never kept a set of books. Fortunately for me, the Secre- tary of the Company knew even less about accounts than I did, and by keeping my eyes wide open and working hard, within a very short time I understood how the books were 48 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD kept. Six months afterwards the telegraph lines of the Montreal and Dominion Telegraph Companies were leased to a new Company called the Great North Western Tele- graph Co. of Canada, and I was lucky in being placed on the joint staff, as the staffs were consolidated and the Company was able to do without several of the employees. My position in the G.N.W. Company was secretary to the Secretary Sz Auditor and again I was a "bum" employee as I did not know short-hand. However, I began at once to learn it and as my employer was very slow in his speech I got along all right. Very soon, however, I gave up short- hand as I was promoted to the position of assistant book- keeper. For some time after that I had a lucky streak, as I was advanced from time to time and in September 1881, I was Chief Clerk and Travelling Auditor, in Dec- ember, 1891, Secretary and Auditor, in October, 1892, Sec- retary-Treasurer and Purchasing Agent, and in March, 1911, General Manager. In January, 1921, the G.N.W. Telegraph Co. was taken over by the Canadian Northern Railway and I retained the position of General Manager. The operating title of the Company was later changed to Canadian National Telegraphs Ca title coined by myselfl and in April, 1921, I was made Vice-President as well as General Manager. On account of reaching the age limit I was retired in 1923, a retiring allowance being granted me by the Canadian National Railways owing to my forty-two years' service. I have given this history of my business career at the request of the Headmaster and in my opinion the only good reason for the story is that it shows what average ability, hard work and the disposition to do more than one's duty will do toward bringing success. TRINITY OOLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 49 The Late Brigadier General D. S. Maclnnes, C.M.B., D.S.0., C86-'8'7J We have received a most interesting outline of the valuable work which Brigadier General Duncan Maclnnes did in connection with the earliest organization of the Royal Flying Corps. Because of the pride We all have in General Maclnnes' distinguished service to the Empire, and because of the School's close connection with the Air Force we reprint some of the paragraphs: "In 1910 he was gazetted a General Staff Officer 13rd Grade! under the Director of Military Training at the War Ollice, being in 1912 employed as Secretary to the Royal Flying Corps Committee, appointed by the Committee of Imperial Defence. The result of this Committee led to the formation of the Royal Flying Corps, which has since developed into the Royal Air Force. He also took an im- portant part in the reorganization of the Army Signal Ser- vice. "Later fin 19137 he was appointed as G.S.O., 2nd Grade, to the Staff of the Staff College and in 1914, upon the outbreak of the War With Germany, proceeded to the Front in France. "After taking a part in the Retreat from Mons, for which he earned the personal thanks of one in high com- mand, he was wounded in November, 1914, when Major in charge of a company of Royal Engineers with the 9th Division, and he returned then to England. The wound, which was caused by a bullet, permanently interfered with the free use of one or two of the fingers of his right hand. "In 1915 he served at the War Oflice as Assistant Director, and in 1916-17 as Director of Aeronautical Equip- ment and, during his tenure of this post, more than once crossed the channel by aeroplane, visiting the Headquarters of the Flying Corps and of the Army in France! "The Aeroplane of 29th May, 1918, thus refers to his services in association with the Air Force:-'As Director 50 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD of Aircraft Equipment, General MacInnes had to face a most arduous task. It fell upon him to evolve from the formless muddle of 1915, some regular scheme for or- ganizing and increasing aircraft production, simultaneous- ly. All those who served with him at that period bear witness to his unflagging zeal and the amount of personal effort which he expended. If hard work on the part of one man could have produced the necessary aeroplanes and engines, General Maclnnes would assuredly have obtained them. Despite an infinity of natural obstacles and personal hindrances he succeeded in effecting remarkable increases in output and at the same time he won the personal affec- tion of all those who Worked with him, or under him. The intensity of his efforts nearly broke down his health, but before he left the War Office to take a command in the field he had done much spade work, which afterwards proved of high value ...... His name deserves to live in the history of Military Aeronautics as one of those who helped the Royal Flying Corps in its blackest days.' "One who Worked much with him at this period, and is now a General Officer, Writes:-'He joined the Military Aeronautics Directorate at a time when very little had been done and there was no organization to meet what he knew was to be a gigantic force. He never spared himself. I think it is only those few people who worked with him in the early part of the War who really recognize how much the Royal Air Force owe to his untiring energy and splendid qualities. I never met a man who worked so hard and so conscientiously, and this in spite of the fact that he was suffering from the effects of a wound, and of general bodily ill-health, brought on by the trying time he had had dur- ing the Retreatf "In March, 1917, anxious to see further active service at the Front, although it involved the relinquishment of his rank of Brig.-General, he went out again to France to per- form the duties of Commanding Royal Engineer to the 42nd Division and from thence, after nine months, was appoint- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 51 ed Inspector of Mines at Headquarters with the rank of Brig-General. On 23rd of May, 1918, while upon active services at the Front on this duty, he was killed, and was buried in the Military Cemetery at Etaples, close to the sea, on Saturday, May 25th. "During the present War he had been twice mention- ed in Dispatches, received the Star for Mons, the C.M.G. in 1916, and the Russian Order of St. Stanislaus, with the French 'Croix d'Oflicier' of the Legion of Honour, in 1917." .Q EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE The Executive Committee of the O.B.A. at recent meet- ings drafted two minor amendments to the Constitution for submission to the next General Meeting at Thanksgiving. In accordance with the Constitution, which calls for notice of amendments being given in advance to all members of the Association, the suggested amendments as drafted are printed here. It is proposed to add to Article V the stipulation that "members of the central Executive Com- mittee shall be elected by the various Branches before January 30th each year, and shall hold office for the ensuing calendar year, or until such time as they are re- placed." It is further proposed to add Article VI that, "The Committee in its choice of a. President, shall not necessarily be restricted to its own number, but may elect any Old Boy of the School." if 43 if if Ili At the last meeting of the Executive Committee formal approval was granted to the formation of a Branch of the O.B.A. at New York, to include all Old Boys living in the U.S.A. east of the Rocky Mts., as was outlined in the last number of the Record. 52 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD OLD BOYS VVITH B.E.F. Among the Canadians who were in France, and who, on June 14th, reached Sable, were Captain K. T. Whyte C25-'26J and Lieut. G. E. Renison C33-'38J. At Sable the commanders learned that the Germans had broken through the French line and were advancing rapidly. Orders were issued to the train crew to shunt the engine for the trip back. The crew protested that there wasn't sufficient steam in the boiler, and declined to move Without authority from the station master, who could not be found. Whyte and Renison were among the four who mustered an emergency crew, to get steam up and be ready to move out with all speed. Captain Whyte had to present the French engineer with a carton of cigarettes and a bottle of Wine, before the latter would consent to take his place at the throttle. It was not until their return to England, without casualty, that they learned how great their danger had been. .ii-1 OLD BOYS' NOTES David Stevenson C32-'33J won a 31,000 scholarship in the London School of Economics, from the University of Toronto.
