TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 5 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 case. 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 Beethoven. "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

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 horizons. 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

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 gentlemen. - "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.
