l1im that the people expected him to be able to treat medical
cases in addition to caring for their spiritual needs. His
Grace then recounted an amusing story of his first medical
In closing, Archbishop Renison stated his opinion of
the fine qualities of the Indian people. "They are," he said,
"all very honest, and all of them live full lives." He urged
the members of the School to support the work of the
missions and expressed the hope that some boys would con-
sider missionary work as a vocation. "The life of a mis-
sionary," he said, "is a very rewarding and satisfying one
for those who choose it."
"ON BEING A GENTLEMANU
On September 27, the Reverend Arthur Packman
addressed the School in the chapel. The title of his topic
was "On Being a Gentleman." Dr. Packman left one main
thought with the School and he expressed it in the following
way. "The hallmark of a gentleman," he said, "is restraint."
To illustrate this point he quoted several anecdotes and told
us of some of the qualities of the music of Mozart and
"Restraint," said Dr. Packman, "is a quality which must
be practised today." He told us that in this extravagant and
vulgar age there is a good need for restraint in our speech
and actions. It is one of our duties to set an example in this
way. If we show restraint we shall be doing a great service
to our modern world.
Dr. Packman Went on to say that we have a wonderful
chance to practise restraint here at T.C.S. In our daily lives
we are able to exercise restraint in both work and play, and
the school playing fields are an excellent ground for our
characters. "It is impossible to play any sport well," said
Dr. Packman, "if the person who is playing it does not re-
strain himselff' He said that a golfer must hit the ball

munication with God." He hoped that many boys would
make full use of it as such.
The Headmaster then described life by an illustration
of a house with three floors. The first floor is our physical
life, where we perform the general routine of the day. This
must be kept clean and tidy. The second is the place of in-
tellect and learning. Here we are surrounded by culture
and books of all sorts. We must make good use of this
place. The third floor, however, is the most important. It
is above all the others and is our spiritual life. Here we
are with God. The one book in this section is the Bible. We
may all benefit from the teachings of God which are in it.
On this floor we may be comforted and inspired. There are
lovely views and we think we can see something beyond the
The Headmaster then closed his address with a quota-
tion from the lesson which had just been read. With it he
summarized his whole address. "Seek ye first the Kingdom
of God, and all other things shall be added unto you."
MISSIONARY WORK IN THE NORTH
On September 20, His Grace, Archbishop Renison
addressed the School in the chapel. In a most interesting
address he described his boyhood when he lived on the shores
of Lake Nipigon. He and his brothers learnt to speak the
Ojibway language and they grew to love the north country.
After he left T.C.S., Archbishop Renison decided that
missionary work was his vocation. After his ordination he
returned to the northland. He had to go to James Bay, so
with his brother and an Indian guide, he set out on the
seven-week canoe trip down the Albany River. The journey
was a hard oneg there were many portages and they had to
shoot game for food. When he reached his destination he
discovered that he had been put in charge of a large mis-
sionary parish there. It was necessary to impress the
Indians, and the retiring rector, Archdeacon Vincent, told

carefully if he is to get good drives. The same requirement
is true of the sports which we play at school.
In closing Dr. Packman set before us the life of Christ,
who was the perfect gentleman. If we follow Jesus we shall
be able to practise restraint, it is then that we may become
"THE EVHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD"
On Sunday, October 4, Canon Lawrence addressed the
School in the chapel. He took his text from the epistle of
St. Paul to the Ephesians: "Have your feet shod."
The chaplain gave an account of the problems facing
early armies in battle. "They were," he said, "greatly
hindered because they had no footwear except that which
could be improvised. It was the Roman armies which were
the first to use 'caliga' or boots, which gave them a great
advantage over their foes, because they could march farther
and faster and could hold their ground better."
Canon Lawrence then described Paul's life in a Roman
prison. He used to see the soldiers drilling outside his cell
and he became friendly towards some of the men and grew
to know the parts of their armour, on which they relied so
much. Each article was indispensable and if one was missing
it greatly reduced the soldier's chances of survival in battle.
Thus St. Paul used the metaphor, "Put on the whole armour
of God," in his epistle to the Ephesians. He exhorted them
to put on the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth,
the helmet of salvation and the shield of faith.
There is still another part of the "whole armour of
God"-the boots. A man if he is to live, must have con-
fidence and a healthy mind. He must be at peace within
himself. He will never be able to stand up against the tri als
and temptations of life unless he is in this state of nund.
Thus St. Paul urges, "Have your feet shod with the prepara-
tion of the gospel of peace." This is excellent advire to any
man in the struggle of life.
