Printed by The Guide Publishing Co. Ltd.. Port Hope, Ont. Editorial The Record and T.C.S. There must be a certain amount of value in publishing a school magazine. Otherwise, the Record would probably not have survived the sixty-eight years that it has. If it were expendable, then it would have been done away with years ago. But the fact that the Record is still being published as T.C.S. enters its second century, indicates conclusive-- ly that in fact, a school magazine is worth considerably more than just the work that goes into it, or the paper on which it is printed. The Record, in my opinion, must serve a two-fold purpose, if it is to span the school's second hundred years. The first of these, the lesser in importance, is suggested by its very titleg it must serve as a "record". This is one of the reasons that our magazine is published three times a year, rather than once, in the form of a yearbook. There has been a certain degree of agitation to have the Record condensed to yearbook statusg hut those advocating such a change seem to forget that one of the main purposes of the Record is to serve as a means of recording to posterity the events which occur throughout the year at T.C.S., term by term. The Record is in fact the only permanent file we have in the school, and our copies date back to 1898, its first year of publication, when it was put out twice a month! Surely to reduce the Record to a Xezirliook would he to destroy part of its basic purpose. D But there is a second role that the Record must play, I think more important, it it is to endureg it must act as a leader. The Record must not he content to give simply a bland regurgitation of the events that TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 3 have taken place during the Term. It must not be content to serve only as a record. It must lead, not follow. With the great potential it possesses, as a magazine which is cir- culated to every boy in T.C.S., the Record has every capability of pro- viding the tremendous stimulus necessary to provoke both thought and action within the school. If an institution such as T.C.S. is to endure, and if it is to boast of producing outstanding men, then it must be con- stantly re-examining itself, and making perpetual adjustments, to keep astride the times. The value of self-criticism cannot be over-empha- sized. It is the Record which can and must provide the stimulus necessary to achieve this end. Acting as a mouthpiece for opinion and criticism, only then can it achieve its real purpose, which is to cultivate in the mind of every boy at the school an awareness of the world around him. If T.C.S. is to give, as it claims, a truly well-rounded education, then it must allow for the natural insularity bred by the atmosphere of a boarding-school, and somehow find a means of combatting this. If T.C.S. is to make a contribution to society, then it must make certain that its graduates have been instilled with that acute power to discern between the good and the mediocre in life. In an attempt to foster this type of thinking, the Record this issue has somewhat re-vamped its main organs of expression, to provide the maximum facility for free writing. In place of the old Literary Section have sprung up three new departments, each with its own philosophy, yet each aimed at the achievement of our ultimate goal. The first of these we are calling the Centennial Section, which, although it was created a few years ago, as the school approached its anniversary, has now taken o11 a completely different purpose to that of its original design. Its name suggests the past, but its emphasis is on rather the present and the future. Its aim is one of self-criticism, to examine the existing institutions of T.C.S., and by presenting dif- ferent viewpoints, to assess their worth. This, we hope, will excite the type of controversy so vitally necessary to keep T.C.S. alive and grow- ing. Our second new section is called "Comment and Criticism", a com- pletely new department devoted to opinion. In serving as a mouth- piece for views on any conceivable subject, its aim is to make the boys of the school realize that life is more than just the comfort and security of T.C.S. The name "Comment and Criticism" should be completely self-explanatory. Finally, we are purifying the old Literary Section, retaining its name, and turning it over completely to creative writing. It is now to be devoted entirely to poetry and short stories, in the hope that it will stimulate a sorely needed interest in original work in the school. The boys of T.C.S. are all of above-average intelligence, but the amount of free composition they do certainly would not indicate this. We hope to remedy this situation, as far as we are capable. This then is our attempt at providing what we think the Record should stand for, and what it should strive to achieve. Once we have overcome the apathy in the school, and have hit home to every boy in it, that he too can have a say in what is said, then we will be well on our way to achieving our end. The Record has the tremendous potential to do this, and both as a record and as a leader is absolutely indispen- sable to T.C.S. -J.A.W. 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Cll-llAPlElL NOTES lle had come straight from HM. HM's orders were clear. "They're a tough lot. 00-minus-7. Don't treat them with kid gloves. Don't turn your back on them. Stick it out for 42 minutes and your mission will be accomplished." This was it. A bell rang in the distance. 00-minus-7 grasped the handle ot' the door firmly. In a split second he opened the door and catapulted into the room. He surveyed the rows of ugly, mean faces before him, the faces of TRASH. So this was the adversary. Slowly he inched his way to the front of the room. Carefully he laid the briefcase supplied by armaments on the table and whipped out the weapon, the new, slim, white, dustless Sanigene MK 2. A smile broke on the corners of his cruel, enigmatic mouth as he clasped this ultimate weapon in his hand, turned to the blackboard and wrote, "From this time forward R.K. marks will count and will be averaged in with all other marks for other academic subjects." The agents of TRASH had been dealt a crippling blow. F.A.T.H.E.R. had again triumphed. R.K. is not on everyone's best seller list. Not everyone has come to that great moment in life when he discovers that R.K. is important. A number of people received somewhat of a jolt when they saw James Rond on the R.K. curriculum this year. Some were convinced of the insanity of the Chaplain, others thought that it was a gimmick of some kind. It is neither. I came to T.C.S. to teach religion. I soon learned that "religion" was the last thing that I should be teaching as Chaplain in the School. Christianity is not concerned with "religion" but with life. I realised that I should be concentrating on life, discovering with others how to understand, criticize, and transform life. And that is what James Bond has to do with R.K. He's a slice of life and a rather popular one. God may be just as concerned with the reason why people read "Dr. No" and with what they get out of it as He is with why they read the Bible and what they get out of it. -B.J.B.

Arnold U59-'65l School Prefect Rick entered the Senior School after two years in Boulden House, and even as a New Boy made his presence strongly felt by his amazing athletic skill, in winning First Team Colours in Swimming and half-Bigside in Cricket. The same year he spent the off-seasons as a sports reporter for the Record, a job which he was to continue right through to Sixth Form. In Fourth Form he again won First Team Colours in Swimming and this time in Cricket as well, for he now enjoyed the phenomenal position of Vice-Captain of the team. Leaving no area of endeavor untouched, he also became an active participant in the Junior debating programme. In Fifth Form Rick continued both his reporting and his debating, this year a member of the Senior Club. He was elected president of his class, and served as secretary of the Student Council. He vice-captained both the Swimming team and the L.B.F. Championship Cricket team, again winning First Team Colours in both sports fyou will notice a little monotony here.J In the Cadet Corps Rick served as a Corporal in the Colour Party. And for all these accomplishments which can be de- scribed as nothing short of outstanding, Rick was appointed a House Officer at the end of the year. Entering Sixth Form, Rick had already achieved a remarkable stan- dard of leadership and participation and this, his final year, was the great climax to his career at T.C.S. He was appointed a School Prefect and made Head of Brent House, and in this capacity he served as Flight Lieutenant of No. 1 Flight in the Cadet Corps. Finally, for his steady, dependable work on the Record, he was appointed co-sports Editor. But it was in sports again that Rick made his outstanding mark in the school, for this year he not only captained both the Swimming Team and the Championship Cricket Team, but for his astounding achieve- ments in both sports, he was awarded a Distinction Cap in each. On Speech Day Rick was awarded the Jim McMullen Trophy and was also runner up to the Grand Challenge Cup. It was with a great deal of regret that Trinity had to part with as fine a person as Rick Arnold. But with him go our best wishes for suc- cess, as he moves on to Yale, a fitting climax to such a memorable six years at T.C.S. 6 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD W. .I. R. Austin C59-'65J Bill spent two years in Boulden House, playing Cricket, Foot- ball, and Hockey, and for his fine record was appointed a HC-dormer" in his last year. Upon graduating into the Senior School, Bill kept up his keenness in sports, by winning Littleside col- ours in Football and Basketball the should have stuck to Hockeyj and was also on the Track ""'-'Y Team. As well as this, he let his natural egg- ' headish tendencies get the better of him, and joined the Physics Club. In Fourth Form "Aus" moved up to Middle- side Football and Basketball, and won his colours in both. He showed the school his singing ability as a member of the chorus of "Iolanthe". In his Fifth Form year, Bill again received his Middleside Football colours, and won Half-Bigside colours in Basketball. On top of this he was the champion hurdler of the Track Team. He retained his coveted membership in the Physics Club and became a stage hand. Bill's last year was outstanding. He won Half-Bigside colours in Football and received the Headmaster's Prize for the Most Improved Player. During the winter, he was a vice-captain of the Championship Basketball team, and was awarded First Team colours in this sport. He spent the spring again leaping over hurdles for the somewhat de- funct Track Team. Always a true aesthete at heart, he was appointed Head of the Choir, an officer in the Colour Party and was again a member of the Physics Club and the Stage Crew. But his greatest accomplishment was to be made a House Prefect and subsequently Head of Bethune House. Needless to say on Speech Day, Bill received a well- deserved Special Award for outstanding contribution to the life of the school. Bill was a great friend and a fine leader, and though he no longer rules his old domain of top Bethune, he carries with him all the best wishes of T.C.S. T. G. Bata U61-'65J Tom entered the school in III Form, and though not a loud extrovert, he soon made his presence felt within the school. He was a typical behind the scenes type - active everywhere. In Third and Fourth Forms he was in the Science Club and the Electronics Club. Ut ap- pears that Tom held the Electronics Club to- gether, because it fell apart when he left it.J He was also a hi-fi addict, and no one in last year's bottom Bethune is likely to forget his expensive fand noisy! stereo set-up. He was also inter- ested in debating and political science, for he was in both the Junior Debating and Junior Political Science Vlubs, and later, in the "Quacks", and the Senior Poli- tical Scicnce Club. While not outstanding in sports, his enthusiasm is reflected in the amount he did. Ile played Littleside Basketball, and was later a Middle- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 7 side Football fullback. As well as this, he was also a stalwart Squash player. His interest in sports carried over to the Record, where he was a reporter, and later co-sports Editor. Because he wore the most comfortable shoes in the school, march- ing came easily to him, and he was thus an extremely competent Cadet Sergeant, where his sergeant-major's voice proved an advantage. He became a member of the infamous Billiards Club, and for his various contributions to the life of the school was made a House Prefect, in which capacity he was at least as effective as two. Tom was always the quiet type, but certainly one of the most re- liable and dependable that could be found anywhere. He gave a great deal to T.C.S.. and we wish him luck. R. T. W. Bower C62-'65J Rick came to Brent House in Fourth Form from St. John's Ravenscourt in Winnipeg, and spent three full and active years at Trinity. No mean athlete, he used to good ability that western-bred talent, playing on Littleside Hockey in his first year and Middleside Hockey for the next two years. And in the Fifth Form, he tore himself away from league football to play on the Littleside squad for one year. As a good start for what was to become a fine academic record at T.C.S., Rick won the Trinity prize for IVB1. By Sixth Form he had become a member of the Senior Political Science Club and was renowned for his fire-breathing Toryism. Rick was a familiar figure on the campus in the Trinity Term, golf club in hand, or practising his goose-stepping. His ability to keep in step won him sergeant stripes in the Cadet Corps in VI Form. During all his three years at the school, Rick remained a strong quiet type. He had the knack of staying behind the scenes but was always ready and determined to help or contribute to Trinity life, which he did in many ways. And for these dependable qualities, Rick was indeed well liked. We sincerely wish him the best of luck. D. K. Brown C62-'65J "Dekes" entered the school as a Fourth Form New Boy and set- tled into school life rapidly. A fun-loving boy, he joined Littleside League Football where he was a stalwart center. Later that year Dekes received Littleside Basketball colours for his great work on the team. Dekes also supported the Track and Field Team in both his Fourth and Fifth Form years. In Fifth Form, "D.K." exposed a new facet of his character by joining the "noble army" of Sacristans. He so excelled in this new role that in his last year CVIth Formb he was made one of the Crucifers. In V Form he graduated to the Middleside level in sports, to league football and Middleside Basketball. In both V and VI FOI ms Dekes made the illustrious League All-Star Football team Cwhich as 8 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD usual ignomiuiously defeated Middleside footballj. As well as this, D.K. was responsible for helping boys to get their Bronze Medallion and their Awards ot' Merit, as he was a Life-Saving instructor, and subsequently examiner. Another interesting side of Dekes' character was his great love, extra-curricular, of course, for motor scooters. This did not come out until Y Form, but it became a source of amusement and a topic of conversation among D.K. and his friends. His great dream, that of owning a "bike" of his own, was finally realized at the beginning of his Yl Form year and few will forget the sight of Dekes, triumphant on his llonda at the Ridley game last year. For shortly before the start of the game. going at reckless speeds nearing twenty miles an hour, D.K. at- tempted a hair-pin turn, and fell off. And that no one will ever forget! Dekes is now at McMaster. Good luck to him from all his friends at T.C.S.! P. F. Carey C63-'65J School Prefect Pete, or Trix as he came to be known, entered the school as a Fourth Form New Boy. Though a quiet, studious person, he soon showed he had great sporting abilities for he vice-captained the Middleside Basketball team, and played Little- side Cricket as well. Who will forget his scan- dalous appearance on the cricket pitch wearing a red shirt?l In Fifth Form Trix really accelerated. He played Middleside Football and showed he was no ordinary basketball player by winning Big- Nw side Colours in that sport. He also entered more into the extra-curricular side of school life this year: he became a stalwart bass in the choir, a member of the Senior Political Science Club, the Pat Moss Club, and that notoriously intel- lectual. hockey-game-watching, gourmet-gourmand club known as the "Quacks". But he did not forget his studies, and was awarded the Jubi- lee Award for Mathematics on Speech Day, the top Maths prize. For all his outstanding achievements in his two short years at the school, he was made a House Officer at the end of the year. 'x 0 In his last year, Trix, having been appointed a School Prefect, con- tinued his career as a fine athlete. He played Bigside Football and was co-vice-captain of the L.B.F. Championship Bigside Basketball team. He also distinguished himself as a racquets player of note, being both the school singles Badminton Champ, and with Rich Irvine, the school doubles Tennis Champ. He was appointed School News Editor for the Record, a position he ably filled, aided by a vast editorial staff. As well as this, he continued in the Choir. Always a pool-shark, though he never liked to admit it, he was appointed President of the Billiards Club, and melted away countless hours trying desperately to beat John Esdaile. The Senior Political Science Club benefited much from his presence, and he was awarded the prize for Best Speech delivered be- fore this erudite assembly. Pete was quite a leader who rarely had to raise his voice to main- tain totai order. fexcept of course, as a Flight Lieutenant of Cadetsj. lie was always a valuable friend and a good sport, whatever the cir- cumstanfxes. Very few people are recognized as such by their com- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 9 panions. Pete was one of these, for his classmates elected him Presi- dent of The Leaving Class. What better tribute can there be than this to such an outstanding person as Pete? R. E. Cundill C60-'65J Breaking swim ming records seemed to be Bob's favourite pas- time. But he did many other things as well. Coming to the Senior School after a year in Boul- den House, he assisted on the staff of the Record in his New Boy year, and played Littleside Hockey. It is said that his first season on ice was an extremely slushy one, for having been thoroughly soaked several times, Bob decided to take the plunge for a much warmer variation of the same medium. The whim to swim proved an eventful one for the rest of Bob's career at T.C.S. After managing the Littleside Football team in Fourth Form, Bob joined the swim team, and in one short season did such a superlative job that he won Bigside Colours. As well as this he continued his Record work. Then in Fifth Form, Bob began the first of two years as a stage hand. But it was again in swimming that he really shone. Having been taught the But- terfly from scratch by another swimming ace and Captain that year, Tom Reid, who set an L.B.F. record, Bob turned around and beat Tom's record in the very next heat of the L.B.F. swim meet that year. And then not content just to leave it there, he proceeded to break his own record all over again at the L.B.F. meet in his last year at the school. For this phenomenal achievement Bob was awarded a Distinction Cap, as well as a Special Coaching Award, for the time he devoted to the younger swimmers. On top of this, to round off his College En- trance year, he won Middleside Football Colours, and helped to lead Bethune House as a Cadet Sergeant. Bob's appointment in his last year as a House Officer was certainly a testament to all the fine work he did during his five years at T.C.S. We are certain that Bob will be a success in whatever field he specializes fwe recommend Olympic swim- ming.J R. E. de Boyrie C60-'65D Ralph began his career at T.C.S. in Boulden House, where he played for the Second Soccer Eleven. Certainly it was rather a shock for him to see the first snowfall, for he was accustomed to the tropical temperatures of Panama. However, he wea- thered his first winter, and entered the Senior School obviously well acclimatized as his record here shows. He participated in the New Boy ..,,,,,, gym competition in his first year. was a mem- ber of the Littleside Basketball team, and was the best batsman on Littleside Cricket. The next year, Ralph began his upward climb, and gradu- ated to Middleside Basketball and Cricket. In Fifth Form, Ralph was awarded the honoured position of Captain of Middleside Basketball, played again for Middleside Cricket, and was the 10 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD lead percussionist of the Concert Band, then in its infant stages. In the fall ot' his final year, Ralph was Captain of his league foot- ball team, and held the important post of head linesman for school foot- ball games. lle was appointed a Flight Sergeant in the Cadet Corps, and was once again a member of the Concert Band. As a climax to his ath- letic career, Ralph played for the L.B.F. Championship Bigside Basket- ball team. And for his varied contributions to the school, he was made a Ilouse Officer. lt can certainly be said that Ralph enjoyed a highly successful career at T.I'.S. He was the quiet unassuming type, well-liked and highly thought of. Undoubtedly he was the only boy in the school ever to have had his birthday celebrated nineteen days in a row. In fact, we're still celebrating it here, even after he's gone! Good luck to you, Ralph. l A. C. Duncanson C56-'65J Andy came to the Senior School a tried and proven veteran of Boulden House, having participated in Football, Cricket and Hockey, in which he showed parti- cular promise. When he arrived here, this "live wire", as he was sometimes referred to by a certain House- master, jumped enthusiastically into all the ma- jor sports, playing Littleside Football, Hockey and Cricket. As well as this, he took part in the Glee Club's many activities. In Fourth Form Andy jumped up a grade, to Middleside Foot- ball, and much to everyone's surprise also joined the Junior Debating Club. In Fifth Form Andy hit the big time by playing Bigside Football and Middleside Hockey as well. That year, for the first time, he was a member of the Pat Moss Club and was a Stage Hand for the School play. Sixth Form was a fitting climax to Andy's long and rewarding career at T.C.S. - and showed he made a significant contribution to the school. As well as being a House Officer of the highest order, he once more lent his ability and experience to Bigside Football. Besides participating to the fullest in sports, he was vice-president of his class, an "upstanding" member of the Billiards Club, and a Stagehand for the second year in a row. In Cadets, Andy attained the rank of W.O.2 and was appointed Head of the Cadet Band - it was due to him principally that they per- formed so well on Inspection Day. Andy is now studying economics at Ryerson in Toronto, and we wish him all the success in the world in his life as a 'I'.f'.S. Old Boy. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 11 W. D. P. Elcock C63-'65J Ward joined the ranks of Bethune in his Fifth Form year, and thus neatly dodged the ravages of the New Boy system. As a result he was still in fit enough condition by winter-time to get out into the cold brisk air with a pair of skates and play for the glory of the Rabbit League. He spent the fol- lowing spring romping around the campus like a gazelle, for he became a member of the Rugger team. In Sixth Form, however, Ward became doubly active and, as a result, the year was a busy and rewarding one for him. During the fall, he took on the mammoth task of managing Bigside Football, and carried out his job respon- sibly and tirelessly. Again he joined the ranks of the Rabbit League in the winter but this year enjoyed the prestige of being a Captain, and the spoils of being an All-Star. But Ward did not limit his activities just to athletics, for in Sixth Form he was elected a member of the pres- tigious Senior Political Science Club, to which he contributed a great deal. And not to be overlooked is his appointment as a House Officer, and a Sergeant in the Cadet Corps as well. As if these jobs weren't enough to keep him busy, he roomed with David Laing, which was a job in itself. He never knew, as he got up each morning, whether his bed was electrified, or whether some deadly explosive had been stuck in the soles of his shoes. However, he survived it unscathed, and remained his same dependable, unassuming self. Ward accomplished a great deal in his two years at the school, and with him go the best wishes of T.C.S. .. J. M. Esdaile C58-'65l School Prefect To write a quick summary of John's years at T.C.S. is rather difficult, for he did so much that it would be perhaps easier to list what he did not do. However, at the risk of making this a thicker Record than ever before, we will attempt the for- mer. "Ezz" spent three years in Boulden House. He played on the soccer team for all three years, captaining the team his final year. John also very early in his school life showed his bent to- wards acting. He was the lead in the J.S. plays in his last two years there. And in his last year John was made a member of C Dorm. In the Senior School John continued along the path he had so illus- triously hewn out for himself in Boulden House. In sports, because of his amazingly minute physique, John never played on a school football team. However, he found his sport in the form of gymnastics, and in this, he worked his way steadily up, from Middleside Colours in Third and Fourth Forms, to Half-Bigside in Fifth Form, and finally to full Bigside in his final year. In the field of extra-curricular activities John was a standout. He was on the Fourth Form debating executive, debated on the senior level in Fifth Form, and became Deputy Speaker and Head of the Third Form Debating Club in his final year. For his contributions to debating at 12 Tninrrv COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the school, on Speech Day last June, he was awarded a Special Debating Prize. As well as this Ezz continued his interest in dramatics in the S.S. In Third Forni he wrote and acted in the New Boy Skit and was in the senior play "Escapade", The next year, because of his amazing sing- ing ability the was tone deafl, John was made Page to the Lord Chan- cellor in "Iolanthe". In Fifth Form he starred in the comedy "The Hap- piest Days Ot' Your Life", as Miss Whitchurch, for which he was award- ed the "Best Actor's Award", and in his final year he was one of the leads in H1865 and All That". .lolin contributed to manv other phases of school life, on which there is not time to elaborate fully. Briefly, he was at one time or another in the Dramatics Society, the Physics Club, the French Club. both the Senior and Junior Political Science Clubs, the Quacks, the Billiards Club, and on top of this all, he won the Public Speaking Contest twice. In his final year, several other accomplishments are notable. John was made Head Librarian and Features Editor of the Record. He was also ap- pointed Head Sacristan and Head Crucifer. All these positions he filled responsibly. If the above does not impress you, it should be said that scholastics was really John's forte. In both the Third and Fourth forms he won the Trinity Prize and the Bethune Scholarships. In the Fifth Form, .Iohn won all of four subject prizes, in Math, French, History, and Science. On Speech Day in his final year John again did extremely well. Among the many prizes he won. or rather earned, were the coveted Governor General's Medal for Mathematics and the Founder's Prize for Science. It might be added now that in his Grade 13 Departmentals John got the highest average in Sixth Form. John, for all his contributions, was named a Fifth Form House Of- ficer, and in his final year was appointed a School Prefect. John's record speaks for itself. In everything he did, he applied himself to the utmost, and never gave anything but his best. His enthusiasm was unbounded and the results are self-evident. We wish him well at McGill where he is now studying. D. J. Galbraith C62-'65J Doug came to T.C.S. in Fourth Form, and when someone asked him how he was going to get along here, his re- ply was: "Oh, I guess I'll manage somehow." His prediction soon came true for that very same year he became manager of the track team. In his second year he managed Middleside football and in the Sixth Form, as a grand finale, he be- came co-manager-in-chief of the Bigside Foot- ball Team. However, Doug was not always the man be- hind-the-scenes, for he was a member of the swim team for three years, and earned Little- side and half-Bigside colours. A versatile per- son. he swam breaststroke, long-distance and was also a diver. In one instance, while swimming the 200 yard freestyle in a different pool, Dong siil'l'i-veil the disconcerting discomfort of bashing into the end of the pool llle came third in the race, by the wayl. Dong displayed a positive attitude while he was at T.C.S., he was a meniber ot' the French Vlub, the Pat Moss Club and the Glee Club, the TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 13 Debating Society and the Record staff, and as well as this, he was the organizer of the Trap Shooting Club. As a Cadet, he proved himself most capable, winner of a Flying Scholarship, he received his Wings from Governor-General Vanier, on the Centennial Inspection Day - one more feather in his cap! Also a keen Geography student, he had the initiative and desire to do some extra work on a "nickel project" as an entry for the Hugel prize for Geology, payable in cash. Since he was the only entrant, na- turally he won it. fThere was a nasty rumour going around that he did it just for the moneyj. Doug's three years at T.C.S. were short but busy ones, in which he contributed much to the life of the school. T.C.S. is just a beginning, and for people like Doug, a good beginning. R. S. Glassco C61-'65D Roger the Dodger. as he was called, was a unique figure around the school, he was of that peculiar breed who are extremely well-liked, yet hold the respect of a prefect. Certainly Rog was a most enjoyable fellow to be with, almost anywhere, especially on leaves in Toronto, where invariably he made it back to the bus with only one or two seconds to spare. Rog's record of achievement at T.C.S. is long and impressive. By the time he entered Fifth Form, he had already been a member of the Junior Political Science Club for two years, the Debating Society, Littleside Football, the Big- side Squash team, and the Track Team. In his Fifth Form year he went on to become a member of the senior Political Science Club, an L.B.F. Debater, President of his class, a stage hand. and a member of both the Billiards Club and the Glee Club. As well as all this, he played Middleside Football, was a member of Bigside Squash, and was on the Track team again. Rog was made a Fifth Form House Officer and the next year a House Prefect. During this last cli- mactic year at the School, Rog became the President of Debating, Captain of Bigside Squash. and a member of Bigside Football. The contributions that he made to the School life were indeed outstanding, as his record of activities so clearly shows. We hope that Rog does just as well in the future, and wish him all the best at Carleton University where he is now studying. G. A. Granger C61-'65D George, another of our illustrious West Indian Imports. came to T.C.S. from Jamaica and went into the Third Form. During that winter, rather than brave our cold Canadian climate. 'Spic' preferred to remain indoors and play for Littleside basketball. Then when spring arrived, and things had warmed up a bit, he ventured out-of-doors and played Littleside cricket. In his Fourth Form year, George advanced to the Middleside teams in both sports. Then in Fifth Form he made the big break-through in cricket and played for the Big- side XI in their glorious year as LBF Champions. Naturally he remained on the team in Sixth 14 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Form as well, and for his excellent sportsmanship was awarded Bigside Colours. Who can forget the many great catches he made at slips? Finally, he became a member of the Bigside Basketball team in Sixth Form as well, aso LBF Champions. 'Midnight' talias 'Addison X'J was a familiar figure in the courts, as he came bounding down to make a jump shot, humming "Sweet Georgia Brown" to himself. His ability as a drilmbler won him half-Bigside colours. Looking back, there was one particularly notable thing about Spic's athletic career: every Big- side team that he played on won an LBF Championship, certainly a hard record to beat. But Spic was not just an athleteg and his many other extra-curricular activities show this clearly. He was a faithful member of the Science Club, the Billiards Club, the Cadet Band, and the Record staff. ln Sixth Form he was awarded an R.C.A.F. scholarship, and sub- sequently earned his flying licence last summer. As a token of his many accomplishments throughout his career at T.C.S., he was ap- pointed a House Officer. We are confident that George will continue his successes, as he moves on to Carleton. R. L. Harvey C57-'65J Rick came to Brent House in the fall of 1961, after four years in Boulden House, and soon became known for his friendliness and great exuberance. 'Puppy Dog' kicked off his athletic career in League football, but then played Middleside hockey and Littleside cricket, receiving colours in both. In this Third Form year he was also a Librarian, and sang in the Glee Club. In the next year, not only did Rick break out of the League to play Middleside football, but also moved up to Bigside, near the end of the season, and was awarded Middleside Colours for his efforts. Rick then made Bigside Hockey, and received his first set of Bigside Colours, of which he was destined to receive many more. In the spring, Rick joined the Track and Field Team, but he also did much in other fields fit's hard to keep track of them alll. Gifted with a fine voice, he sang in the chorus of "Iolanthe", and was also in the Choir, as well as the Glee Club. On top of all this Rick was a Sacristan. and he also nobly and unselfishly devoted much of his time to the Billiards Club. By his Fifth Form year, Rick was on Bigside to stay: in football he won Full First Team Colours for his performance on the team, once more he made the Bigside hockey teamg and he decided to take up cricket again, dividing his time between Middleside and Bigside. He was a prop manager for the "Happiest Days of Your Life", and continued his work as a Sac-ristan. As before, Rick returned to his old loves: the Glee Club apdhthe Billiards Club. He was appointed a House Officer at the end o t e year. ln his last year, Rick played all three major sports, and received a Distinction Cap for Cricket. He was in H1865 and All That", and sang in the skclcton choir for Mr. Prower's anthem. He also continued to sing in the Glee Club, and kept the billiard cue in his hand. And cer- tainly not to he overlooked is that he was a Flight Officer in the Colour Party as well as a House Prefect. During his eight years at the school, '91 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD I5 he proved himself outstanding in every field he pursued, especially in athletics where he showed unusual abilities. We wish him all the suc- cess he had at T.C.S. D. G. Hassel C60-'65l It was in the fall of 1960 that Dave first entered Brent House as a New Boy. Getting into the swing of things im- mediately, he earned colours in both Littleside Football and Hockey, and played league cricket as well. In the next two years, as he drifted bliss- fully through Fourth Form, Wazo received col- ours, then co-captainship, and finally the Most Valuable Player Award on Middleside Football. He was also a Captain in Rabbit League Hockey, contributed to the Pat Moss Club, and was a Stage Hand. In his Fifth Form year, Dave received col- ours on Bigside Football, and was again a Captain of Rabbit League Hockey. As a lumberjack, he continued to be active in the Pat Moss Club, and was again a Stage Hand. Returning in the fall of '64 for his final year, Dave was destined to play a large part in school affairs. He became Assistant Captain of Bigside Football, earning both a Distinction Cap, and the Kerr Trophy for the Most Valuable Player on Bigside. Dave won his second set of Bigside Colours that year for his efforts on the Hockey Team, where he had made the tremendous leap from the league. Among other things, Dave was in charge of the Stage Hands, he was appointed a House Prefect and finally became Assistant Head of Brent House. He also held the important rank of WO1 in the Cadet Corps. Not one of the biggest, but, as he would say, certainly one of the toughest, Wazo was always a centre of activity of TCS, and his un- flagging spirit never wavered. He was a true asset to the school, and set an example for many to follow. N37 M. B. Holton C61-'65D Four years passed while Mark was at T.C.S. and he made the most of them, by entering into almost every branch of school life. In his first year, he took part in league sports, became a member of the Science Club, and an electrician. In Fourth Form Mark again was a Stage Hand for the Christmas enter- tainment, and remained in the Science Club as well. He played league Football and Cricket, and C"""' during the winter term was a member of Little- side Basketball. During his year in Fifth Form, Mark extended his interests to include the Bil- liards Club, and Tennis in the spring term, as well as keeping up his league Football, remaining a worthy member of the Stage Crew, and becoming manager for Middle- side Basketball. Undoubtedly Mark's best year was his final one, in which he headed 16 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the Electrical Crew in their mammoth job of lighting the stage for the Christmas entertainment, and, more especially for the School's Centen- nial production H1865 and All That". Mark's other interests in his senior year included the Billiards Club, in which he constantly defeated S. G. Smith hy vast scores, managing Bigside Basketball, and leading the lum- berjacks at the Pat Moss camp, for which he received the well-deserved Pat Moss Award on Speech Day. During the summers of 1964 and 1965 Mark gave up part of his holidays, to be an efficient and useful coun- sellor at the Trinity Camp. For his commitments to the school, and for his varied contributions to school life, he was appointed a House Officer, a position well earned by all his fine efforts. The school wishes Mark all the best as he moves on to the Arts faculty at Bishop's University. J. R. C. Irvine C60-'65J School Prefect Dur- ing his short stay in Boulden House, Rick, or "Croft" as he was called, identified himself as an athlete of great prowess by playing on both First Cricket and First Football, and he brought this athletic reputation with him as he entered the hallowed halls of Brent in September of 1961. In Third Form he came second in the New Boy race and played Littleside Hockey and Middle- side Cricket. And then, just to prove that he had cultural as well as athletic interests, he bal- anced the intellectual side by joining the Junior Political Science Club. As well as this, he was elected Secretary to his class. ln Fourth Form Rich expanded his athletic pursuits to include the Tennis Team. Littleside Football, Middleside Hockey, the Oxford Cup, in which he finished third, and Bigside Cricket. In addition to this, he lent his voice to the very successful production of "Iolanthe". By the time Fifth Form rolled around, Rick's athletic endeavours included the Tennis team, of which he was singles champion, Middleside Football, second place in the Oxford Cup, Bigside Hockey, and Bigside Cricket CLBF championsl. He also became a member of the Pat Moss Club. And for all his many contributions to the school, he was appointed a llouse Officer. Sixth Form for Rich was a year of unparalleled activity. He was appointed a School Prefect early in the year, and in this capacity helped to make the Centennial Year the great success that it was. In athletics Rich was as busy as ever, with Bigside Football, Hockey, and Cricket, and the Tennis team. He also won the doubles in Tennis and Badmin- ton, as well as retaining the Tennis singles championship. On top of all this, he served as his class representative to the Student Council. All those of us who knew Rich during his five years at T.C.S. will remember him for his warm personality and his happy sense of humour. And we will join in wishing him the best of everything as he continues his studies at Colby College. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 17 B. F. Lackie C60-'65D After a successful year in Boulden House, Bart appeared at the doors of Brent House with his usual broad grin on his face. As a New Boy, he played league football, received colours in Littleside Hockey, and was Captain of Littleside Cricket. He was also active in the Junior Political Science Club. In Fourth Form, still flashing his uppers, Bart played Littleside Football, Middleside Hoc- key, Where he received his colours, and Middle- """ side Cricket. The following year Bart reverted to league football, but made up for it by playing Bigside Hockey. He was a lumberjack in the Pat Moss Club and became a member of the Billiards Club. As a climax, he was given the honour, awarded to out- standing Fifth Form boys, of being appointed a House Officer. In his final year Bart became Assistant Captain of Middleside Foot- ball, and received colours for Bigside Hockey, in which he was the star goalie. He further heightened his kudos by remaining a member of the Billiards Club. And he was reappointed a House Officer. Because of this, and because he never enjoyed being a part of the rank-and-file, he was appointed a Flight Sergeant in the Colour Party. Bart was a truly genial person, whose flashy smile and tremendous get-up-and-go earned him a fine reputation and contributed much to his highly successful career at T.C.S. We wish him all the best of luck at Queen's. W? D. Laing C60-'65J Dave entered the Senior ' 1 . - , School from Boulden House in 1961 and immedi- :C se tif. ately showed himself a boy of great intelligence .4 X - ' by choosing Bethune House as his base of opera- tions for the coming years. As a member of IIIA V W. 5 and a native Quebecois, he felt it wise to join the D K, French Club, but even at this time Dave's in- g c 1 , Y terest in the sciences, especially mathematics. ran very high, and he became a member of the Science Club. In Fourth Form, Dave was again found in the French Club, this time as Secretaryg and he also was in the Science Club again. Who can forget the countless hair-raising experiments with deadly explosives he performed when Mr. Lewis' back was turned? But this year was a particularly special one for Dave and for the school, as it marked his entry into the Camera Club. His outstanding pro- ficiency in this art won him first prize in the Photography Competition, and he was to lead photography to new heights within the school. That same year, whenever he could tear himself away from the darkroom, he lent his talents to the Swimming Team. In Fifth Form, he was Secretary of his class, President of the Camera Club, and the Photographic Editor of the Record. His tremen- dous aptitude for mathematics was shown this year, and he decided to join the "chosen few" for Problems with Mr. Corbett. Sixth Form was truly a year crowning Dave's achievements at T.C.S 18 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Again he was Photographic Editor of the Record and President of the Camera t'lub. That year, his well concealed but intense interest in sports asserted itself. for he became Captain of a Middleside League football team, and worked his way up to a position on the Squash Team. For his achievements at the school he was made a House Officer. No account of David Laing would be complete without some men- tion ot' his unique sense of humour. He was a master of mimicry, and could have people beside themselves with laughter at his impressions of individuals who would probably prefer to remain anonymous. He was also a master of Modern Dance, and had there been a club of this kind at the school he undoubtedly would have led it. , On Speech Day 1965, he won the Jubilee Exhibition for Maths, the Photography Prize, a special prize for assistance on the Record and the Sixth Form Science Prize. Dave was a great contributor to the school, and both his practical jokes and tremendous sense of humour will be sorely missed. R. A. G. MacNab C57-'65J Assistant Head Prefect Out of the wild stretches of Newfound- land, skates slung over his shoulder, and hum- ming "My Own Dear Land", Gordie arrived, in all his glory, at Boulden House. But it wasn't for several years, however, after "Mick,', as he was also called, had been Triple Captain, winner of the Paterson Cup for two years, and Hamil- ton Bronze Medal winner, that the Senior School was graced with his presence, and his continual remark, "The 'Wings'll take it this year." When Gordie arrived, or rather, blew in, all ninety-eight pounds of him, he continued to show that he was one of the best athletes the school has ever seen, for as a New Boy, he played Middleside Football, and both Bigside Hockey and Cricket. In his next year he became a mem- ber of Bigside Football, and played on the Independent Schools Cham- pionship Hockey Team, winning a Distinction Cap for his outstanding effort. That same year, he was also elected to the Pat Moss Club. Then "The Mouse" advanced to Fifth Form, still backing the Wings, and still humming "My Own Dear Land". He was elected vice-captain of Football and Captain of Hockey, where he was voted the Most Valu- able Player, and in the spring, wearing elevator cricket boots, he was awarded the Best Fielder's Prize for his work behind the stumps on the L.R.F. Championship Team. Also in this same year, Gordie was an Executive in the Pat Moss Club, and President of his class. On Speech Day he won the Jack Maynard Memorial Trophy, as well as being Runner- Up for the Grand Challenge Cup. In his Sixth Form year, Gordie changed his tune - now it was "Dream Lover" instead, but from the way he sang it, it sounded more like the Funeral March. Nevertheless, he went on to achieve the phe- nomenal: to become Triple Captain, and again winner of the Jack May- nard Trophy. In Ilockey he was again awarded the Most Valuable Player Trophy and was the best fielder on the Cricket team, which won its second I..I-LF. Vhampionship. In this, his final year, he was appointed flfssisltant Ilead Prefect, and was the winner of the Grand Challenge rop v. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 19 Gordie was a true athlete, both in his ability and in the way in which he conducted himself, whether on the field or in the rink. No matter how off base he may have been in cheering for the "Wings", his ideas of sportsmanship were of the highest calibre, and never once fal- tered during all his long years at T.C.S. He will long remain a legend at the school. P. C. Marriott C61-'65D Chris strode into the bright portals of Bethune House in the fall of 1961, and right away sallied forth into school life. In Third Form, "Percy", as Chris came to be known, played league football, hockey, and cricket. He repeated this performance in Fourth Form year, and as well as this extended his out- side interests to include the Science Club. In Fifth Form Percy once more played league football and cricket, but this year became a member of the Middleside hockey team. On top of this he was a Royal Lifesaving instructor, and became a valuable addition to the Record staff as a sports reporter, a job which he filled in his last year as well. By the time Sixth Form rolled around, Percy was set in his ways and determined not to break tradition: and so once again it was League football for him. But as well as this, he became a Cheerleader, and was certainly one of the most enthusiastic and lively Cheerleaders the school has seen for a long time. During the winter he became the Captain of a Rabbit League hockey team, although he was easily Bigside material. This is evidenced by the fact that he scored almost twice as many goals as everyone else in the League put together. In the House drill in the Trinity Term, Chris was a Flight Sergeant, and was a Sergeant in the School Cadet Corps on Inspection Day. For his obviously valuable con- tributions to school life, Chris was appointed a House Officer. Percy will be greatly missed around the school, particularly for his unusual sense of humour and for the innumerable pranks he played on different members of both staff and student body. His madcap antics always added a lighter touch to the life of the school. We wish Perc the very best of luck, as he continues on his way to further his education in the halls of higher learning. D'A. P. Martin C61-'65D Head Prefect D'Arcy could scarcely be called the usual type of New Boy who arrives in Third Form, and after a slow beginning gradually builds his way up through the school to success. On the contrary, D'Arcy exhibited all his phenomenal qualities of leadership right from the very start, and was a standout from the moment he entered the school. He was first heard from as the Class Presi- dent of IIIA. But that was not the last the Stu- dent Council was to see of him, for he became Secretary of IVA the next year and finally Pre- sident of the Council in VI Form. He also joined 20 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the Junior Political Science Club in third form, and was subsequently elected President in Fourth Form. The next year he was made "Master- in-Chargen ot' the Junior club, and as well as this became a member of the Senior Political Science Club. His crowning achievement was to be elected co-President of the Senior Club, a post from which he was later forced to resign, owing to various other pressures upon him, which you will soon see. Hut lYArcy also found his niche in Dramatics. He had parts in two small plays in his first year, and these prepared him to be a chorus- leader in Iolanthe in his Fourth Form year. His next step was to win the Butterfield Trophy for his leading part in "The Friars of Berwick", and for assisting in the direction of the "Happiest Days of Your Life". Finally in his Sixth Form year, D'Arcy was nothing short of outstanding in his portrayals of both Edwin Nash and the Founder in H1865 etc.". Incidentally, he gave an encore of the latter during the May 1 Centennial celebrations. The Debating Clubs too profited enormously from D'Arcy's contri- butions. He was President of the Junior Club in Fourth Form, and de- bated on the LBF level the next year against Ridley, and against UCC in Sixth Form. That same year he was a highly efficient, effective, and witty School Speaker, spokesman for the school. Perhaps D'Arcy's major contributions to the school were through his work on the Record. He was a faithful member of the Record staff for all his four years at the school, winning the Prize for Humour in his second. In his final year he was unquestionably the obvious choice for Editor-in-Chief, one of the most taxing and time-consuming jobs in the school. Rarely did he get to bed before one o'clock, as the day of the deadline approached. D'Arcy's Records were among the finest in years. Records truly befitting the Centennial Year. But D'Arcy was not only interested in the bookish aspect of school life, for he was also a very keen and capable athlete. He made the Littleside Football squad in Fourth Form, from which he graduated to Middleside the next year. And in Sixth Form, he captained Middle- side, for which he won extra Colours, as well as a Coaching Award. IJ'Arcy's real forte, however, was Squash, where he made the steady upward climb from Middleside colours in Fourth Form, Half-Bigside in Fifth Form, to full Bigside in Sixth Form. Hut all the same, D'Arcy was really best known for his amazing academic prowess. Despite his countless other obligations, he main- tained a high first-class standing nearing the 90's every year. He won the Trinity Prize in IIIA, and in VA won five subject prizes. Needless to say, in Fifth Form he was distinguished bV being Oiiicer. and he climaxed his career at T.C.S. when llead Prefect. In this capacity, he was one of the School has ever seen. The Ventennial Speech Day found him winning appointed a House he was made the finest leaders the the Ingles Trophy for Classics. the Armour Memorial Prize for his work on the Record, the l,t.-Ciovernor's Silver Medal for English, and the Rigbv prize for llistory. Last but not least, he was both the Head Boy and Chancellor's Prize Man and the winner of the Bronze Medal. a feat which has been achieved only rarely before in the history of T.C.S. To be both the leader ot' the school, and its top scholar as well, in view of the tremen- dons work and ability necessary for each, is a phenomenal accomplish- ment, and lVArcy cannot be given too much credit for the truly out- 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 21 standing job he performed in his final year, and indeed in all his years at the School. To wish him luck seems futile, D'Arcy has already been elected President of First Year Trinity. R. J. McLaughlin C60-'65J Some time long ago there lived a certain military officer named Sam McLaughlin. When his distant rela- tive Bob arrived at Boulden House five years ago, everyone decided to call him Sam too, and that's how it stuck. Most people never even knew that Sam wasn't Bob's real name. When he reached the Senior School, Sam played League Football, Hockey and Cricket, a 100 per cent record. And he finished off his first year very well as the IIIB1 Trinity Scholar. In Fourth Form, Sam was again in on all the league sports. But as well as this, he now belonged to the Fourth Form Debating Society, and also the Stamp Club and the Gun Club. In his Fifth Form year, Sam became the Bigside manager of both the Swimming Team and the Champion- ship Cricket Team. That same year he joined the Concert Band, was elected to the Pat Moss Club, and both that summer and the next was a counsellor at the Pat Moss Camp. In Sixth Form, Sam became a School Cheerleader, and although he remained small in stature throughout his years at T.C.S., his voice lowered to a booming roar which could be heard bellowing at non- cheering New Boys during all the games. And as a school cheerleader, Sam was awarded the much coveted position of Goat Tender-in-chief. During the winter, Sam became a member of the Senior Swimming team, and the spring saw him again as manager of an L.B.F. cham- pionship team. Certainly not to be overlooked is the fact that as well as all this, Sam was also the only Sixth Form member of the Concert Band. Sam will not be forgotten at T.C.S., for he was unquestionably responsible for much of the School spirit that was seen in the Cen- tennial year. We wish him all the best of luck at the University of Guelph, where he is now taking an advanced course in goat-tending. P. C. Moffatt C60-'65J Peter came to the school as a day boy, and in Boulden House proved himself from the start to be a notable athlete. He played for all three Junior School teams dur- ing his year there. And he went on to play Littleside Football and Hockey in his New Boy year in the Senior School. As well as this, he was a first-rate scholar throughout, never allowing his varied extra- curricular activities to have any effect upon his academic work. He contributed much to the school as a Stage Hand, as a member of the Quacks, and, in his final year as a Flight-Ser- geant in the band. Pete was appointed Captain 22 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD of Littleside Football and assistant Captain of Middleside Hockey in his Fourth Form year, and in Fifth Form he went on to play Bigside Foot- ball and I-ligside Hockey. ln his final year, Pete quite outdid himself, becoming a member of lligside Football, assistant Captain of Bigside Hockey, for which he won first teani colours, a House Officer and the Class President of VIB. Nevertheless, despite all these time-consuming extra-curricular activi- ties. Pete was still able to maintain a first-rate academic record, and passed his senior matric with an excellent standing. Pete is now in residence at Trinity - we wish him luck as he goes to his first board- ing school! D. D. A. Paget C62-'65J Dave was another of that illustrious breed known as the Fourth Form New Boy, and although fresh from five years at a school in England, he soon re-adjusted to life in Canada, the completeness of this re- adjustment is evidenced by his record at the school. The only pie in which he had no finger was athletics, for he restricted his efforts in this field to League sports. However by Sixth Form he had been made Captain of a Rabbit League hockey team. The crowning achieve- ment to this side of his career was his manager- ship of the memorable Bigside L.B.F. Champion- ship Cricket Team in his last year. In his Fourth Form year David displayed his talent for music in his assistance in the Glee Club, and as assistant pianist for "Iolanthe". He was rewarded and encouraged on Speech Day with the Music Prize. This encouragement apparently Worked, for in Fifth Form he became the "third School Organist" and played for three chapel services. David's literary talent was manifested in unflagging support of the Record. During Fifth Form he aided on the actual Staff of the maga- zine and was awarded a prize for the best poem submitted. In Sixth Form he added greater lustre to his name as Editor of the new Centen- nial Department, and all the while continued his support of the other departments. as is evidenced by his winning of the Gavin Ince Langmuir Memorial Prize for his epic essay on the "Evolution of the Record". Throughout his school career "the Grease" obtained First Class Honours. A brilliant maths student, he placed third in the school in Fifth Form, in the annual Mathematics Contest, a remarkable achievement. Always gifted with a natural bent for languages too, he Won both the VI Form Latin Prize, and the two Sixth Form French Prizes, as Well. David had yet another field of endeavor, an interest in speaking, as is evidenced by his membership in the Fifth Form "Quacks", and his Secretaryship of the Senior Political Science Club in Sixth Form. He further extended this interest to include Debating, where he success- fully represented the school against U.T.S. in a first-class debate. As well as this he was a true dramatist at heart, and in Fifth Form he joined the stage staff of "The Happiest Days of Your Life", while in VI, he actually joined the Dramatic Society itself. David is now at Queen's, resting comfortably on the Ontario Schol- iirslhip which he so well deserved. We indeed wish him all the best of uc . TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 23 A. D. Robertson C63-'65J When Andy sud- denly arrived in Fifth Form, the school was never to be the same again. He took Bethune com- pletely by surprise, for no sooner had he come, than he hurled himself into the midst of every- thing, a dynamo of enthusiasm, ready to pitch in everywhere. Basketball was his sport, and Middleside soon found themselves with a real 'globetrotter' on their team. Andy was heard to confess, in one of his more modest moments, "Yes, actually I was a wonderful basketball play- er . . . until they invented baskets." Charging into Sixth Form at full speed, Andy joined the Middleside football squad, where for his tremendous enthusiasm and unquenchable energy he was awarded Middleside Colours. The really outstanding contribution he made dur- ing the fall, however, was as a Cheerleader. This was a job where his great school spirit and true get-up-and-go really shone through, and thus he was unquestionably one of the best cheerleaders the school has seen. In the winter, forsaking basketball for swimming, he plunged into a highly successful career as a diver, and although he had his ups and downs, he represented the school splendidly in the LBF Meet at the end of the season. As well as this, he became a Sacristan, and faithfully served the Chapel in this capacity. In his two short years at T.C.S., Andy had achieved such a high degree of popularity and respect, that he was appointed a House Prefect, surely an outstanding accomplish- ment. As a final testament to his memorable career at the school, he was awarded the coveted Second Year Challenge Trophy, given for an overall superlative contribution to school life. Andy was a true leader, possessed with an insatiable appetite for practical jokes and good fun. No longer will Bethune echo with his constant "Holy Toot", or Mr. Campbell's hubcaps start mysteriously disappearing, for with Andy has gone some of the life of T.C.S. We wish him the very best of luck in what cannot help but be a highly successful future. D. W. R. Ross C59-'65J Dave, alias Bear, began his T.C.S. career in Boulden House, and graduated from same having played First Team on all three major sports, as well as being a "C" dormer. As a New Boy in the Senior School, he was President of his Third Form class, and as well as this played on both Littleside Football and Cricket, and Middleside Hockey. Fourth Form saw his debut on the Bigside foot- ball squad, where he stayed for three consecutive seasons. The same year he was elected to the prestigious position of Captain of Middle- side hockey, a position he was to hold again in Sixth Form after a short interlude with Bigside in Fifth Form. When hockey and foot- ball were in the off-season, Bear kept the old form by playing golf or working at the Pat Moss Camp. In his final year Dave was appointed a House Officer and also acted as a Flight Sergeant in the Cadet Corps. He is now attending St. Lawrence University, and Brent House will never be quite the same again without him. 24 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD S. G. Smith C57-'65l In 1957 Steve began an eight year career at T.C.S. After an impres- sive four years in Boulden House, during which he played First Team Soccer and Cricket, he reached the Senior School, where he maintained his athletic prowess, particularly on the Cricket Field, where he earned first Littleside Colours, and then Middleside Colours for the following two years. In Fourth Form, he won Littleside Colours in Football, and then Half-Bigside Colours in both Fifth and Sixth Forms. During the winter, Steve l played squash, and was awarded Half-Bigside Colours in this sport. As well as this, he fol- lowed all the other school teams around, posing as a sports reporter for the Record. Steve's real forte, however, was his great knack for mechanics. When he first 'hit' the Senior School, he promptly found many outlets for these skills, by joining the Electronics Club, Woodwork Club, the Stage Construction Crew, and the Billiards Club the used his mechani- cal skills here to arrange various magnets under the table in futile ef- forts to beat Mark Holtonl. He also had a fine treble voice Quntil it changedl, which he lent to the ranks of the J.S. choir throughout the four years he remained in Boulden House, and following his entry into the Senior School, he was a solid bass in the Glee Club. During his Sixth Form year, Steve made particular use of this powerful voice, as many a New Boy will readily testify. Steve was a jovial character at heart, always ready with a prank for some unsuspecting innocent. As a stalwart member of the 'Club Six', he made his mark in school legend. Who will ever forget the tele- phone booth in the Dining Hall one morning, or the treasure hunt for Mr. Campbell's hubcaps? There was never a dull moment in Bethune that year. During his long stay at T.C.S., Steve enjoyed a happy and highly successful career, in which he left almost no field of endeavour un- touched, and T.C.S. is the better for him. Q: ' '71 gy . ' 'if B. B. Stackhouse C61-'65J In his New Boy f year, Brad quickly established himself as an eager, good-natured "guy" in all respects. He lost no time in settling down, and soon became a member of the Band, the Junior French Club, - I the Glee Club and the Junior Debating Society. He was also appointed a Sacristan, a post which he held throughout his four years at the school. To complete his Third Form year, he played for Littleside Cricket. In his second year, Brad joined the Choir and the Junior Political Science Club. As well as this, he took up Squash in the winter and played for Middleside Cricket in the 1 spring. In Fifth Form Brad played on both Mid- dleside lfootliall and Cricket. The voice of B. B. Stackhouse echoed through the halls of ilavergal that year when he paid a good-will visit TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 25 to that famed school under the pretense of representing the T.C.S. de- bating team. In the spring term he was appointed a Corporal in the Band for his valuable contribution to the Corps. Brad, by this time alias "The Beau Brummel of T.C.S.", climaxed his years at the School in Sixth Form. He played Bigside Football and Bigside Squash, and in the latter was awarded the Most Improved Player Trophy. Again Brad's mighty voice boomed forth, this time in H1865 and All That" as "Tom the Balm", a part in which he immortalized you- know-who. Somehow, debating, Brad, and Girls' Schools seemed al- ways to work well together lwe never knew whyj and so this year he ended up at Branksome, again faced with the unfortunate task of sway- ing an audience of hostile females. As a result of his many contribu- tions to the school life Bradley was appointed a House Officer, and a Flight Sergeant in the Band. It was a happy and successful career that Brad enjoyed at T.C.S., and we wish him all the best of luck in the out- side world. D. M. Wells C61-'65D While yet a cower- ing New Boy, Don threw himself into life at T.C.S. by joining the Junior Political Science Club, the Record staff, the Science Club, the Library staff, and the Swim team, in addition, he maintained a first class average and won a proficiency prize on Speech Day. He furthered these pursuits in the Fourth Form by taking part in Debating, and joining the Choir. Again he received a proficiency prize for outstanding work in school. It was in the Fifth Form however that Don hit his stride. While sustaining his former in- terests, Don launched himself into a new sphere of endeavour that was to catapult him to fame and glory: he took the role of Miss Gossage, the athletic school-mistress in the T.C.S. pro- duction of "The Happiest Days of Your Life" - a role which demanded not only ability but also great energy. Don abounded in both and was deservedly given the Best Actor Award on Speech Day. In addition he was awarded a special Librarian's prize, a special Essay prize, and the History prize for the fifth form. He also gained half-Bigside col- ours in swimming. In his final year, Don took the task of leadership naturally: he was made a House Prefect, and bore his responsibilities admirably, he was president of the VIA class, a Flight Sergeant in the cadet squadron, Literary Editor of the Record, and President of the prestigious Senior Political Science Club. Furthermore he gave valuable assistance to Middleside football and he was awarded extra-Bigside colours for his contributions to the Swimming team. Don spent his four years at T.C.S. pursuing an impressive variety of interests and in showing himself to be a scholar, a leader, and an athlete of great determination, if not ability. His innocent smile and easy manner concealed, though not entirely, a cutting brand of wit and a great talent for acting. He was an example for others and a great asset to the school, for he contributed to it at least as much as he derived from it. N-rv' 26 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD A. C. Wright C58-'65J School Prefect Dur- ing his seven years at T.C.S., Andy participated in all phases of school life. He was a member of the Junior Political Science Club in his Third and Fourth Form years, then joined the Senior Club, where he remained for two years. As a member of VA he graced Mr. Hodgetts' 'Quacksi "Chas" al- so showed a great deal of interest in debating. He was elected vice-president of the Junior Debat- ing Club, and the next year debated in the L.B.F. Tournament. Another of Andy's strong points was dramatics: he took part in the Boulden House Christmas Entertainment, he wrote the New Boy play in his first year in the Senior School. and was on the make-up crew, he offered strong vocal support to "lolanthe" in Fourth Form. In his Fifth Form year he filled a major role in the cast of "The Happiest Days of Your Life" and in his final year at the school he became narrator of H1865 And All That" and Presi- dent of the Dramatic Society. As well as all this, Andy became a Sacris- tan in Fourth Form and occupied the choice position of Crucifer in his final year. He was appointed Fourth Form representative to the Enter- tainment Committee and again gave valuable assistance to this body in his final year, as a School Prefect. Surprisingly though, in addition to his participation in school life, Andy was always a first class honor student. Furthermore, this aspect of Andy's career at T.C.S. was but one of many. For in sports, as well, he excelled. He played Bigside Foot- ball for two years and was renowned particularly for his gymnastics. He was on the First Gym Team for three years, becoming co-captain in his Sixth Form year. Both for his ability as a gymnast and for the time and effort he spent coaching the younger boys Andy was awarded a Distinction Cap. Finally, and most important, Andy showed that he truly had the qualities necessary to be a leader. He was a member of 'C Dormitory' in Boulden House. As a New Boy he won the Margaret Ketchum Prize given to the boy from Boulden House who, in his first year in the Senior School, is estimated to have contributed most to the life of the schoolg he was President of IVA in his second yearg and was appointed a Fifth Form House Officer at the end of his Sixth Form year. As a certain indication of his outstanding qualities as a leader, Andy was made a School Prefect, a position which he filled very capably. No longer will we see Andy doing his double leg circles on the pommel horse, but we hope he will continue to be the success in the future that he was at T.C.S., both within the gym and without.

He was the sadistic scientist who brainwashed animals for the fun of it, every time he fed his dogs, he rang a little bell simultaneously, until eventually, by the mere power of suggestion, the poor beasts began to drool every time they heard a bell ring. Now it is very unlikely that the Privileges this year are Pavlovs in the making, or that the New Boys are all as canine as they look, but the New Boys' Picnic, held soon after the beginning of Term, was a marked triumph in the annals of psychology. The whole picnic centred around the ancient and time-worn custom of throwing the Prefects into the icy waters of Lake Ontario. This happens every year without fail, and not one Privilege ever escapes the New Boy mob dry. But this year it was different, for the Prefects had a clever plan, which was this: to get the New Boys to attack one another instead. After an invigorating game of soccer, and a hearty, though slightly disorganized lunch, the New Boy keenness was plain to see. They were just waiting for their chance to pounce on the Privileges. And they would have, if one of the Prefects had not at that moment off-handedly suggested that such-and-such a New Boy should be thrown into the lake. And with nothing more said, in an act of complete spontaneity, the frenzied mob descended en masse on the poor wretch, and within seconds he was hurled into the water. Very nonchalantly another name was mentioned, and in a moment the bearer of it too sat sputtering in the lake. The Prefects then sat down casually by the shore and spent the rest of the afternoon name-dropping, as one by one the New Boys were dragged by one another into the cold waters of the lake. Nearing supper- time, not one dry New Boy remained. But before the stunned horde had a chance to collect their wits, to realize they had been tricked, and to set about retaliating, the clever Privileges stepped in, and herded them onto the buses, ending all pos- sible chance for New Boy revenge. The picnic was one of the most memorable in years. We were only sorry that Pavlov was unable to attend. 30 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE CENTENNIAL ORGAN RECITAL September 24 was a day of noises, first the magnificent sounds from the new organ, and then the brash clamour of a football rally. As it turned out, we lost the football game. But the organ recital by Mr. Simon Preston was something that very few at T.C.S. will ever forget. Mr. Preston, who occupies the important position of sub-organist at Westminster Abbey, was on a tour of Canada and the United States and we were very fortunate to have him come to the school, to perform the first recital on our new organ. I wonder now if anybody could have imagined the astounding number of different sounds to Come that night from that instrument, through the hands of this remarkable or- ganist. The few boys who had come intending to sleep were not given the chance. His first two selections were two of the "Schuber Chorale Preludes" by J. S. Bach. The first of these was a warm and melodious composition, contrasting to the bright and peppy tone of the second, which appealed to more of the boys. The Prelude and Fugue by Franz Liszt, which followed, was stun- ning, both in the piece itself, and in the way Mr. Preston played it. Contrast was even more apparent in this work. The Fugue built up powerfully through "dark, chromatic colouring" and a "brilliant Allegro", to a "spacious Finale". The most marked part of the piece was the one sudden, soft passage before the final massive chord. Following this were four short pieces: "Voluntary in D Minor" by John Blow. "Voluntary in G" by Henry Purcell, "Preludio al Vespro di Monteverdi" by Michael Tippett, and "Prelude and Fugue on a theme of Victoria" by Benjamin Britten. Each displayed the musical varia- tion of the period in which it was written, and although none of them appealed particularly to the boys of the school, they gave a real de- monstration of the tremendous virtuosity of the organ and organist. Following a short intermission, the two longest and perhaps the two best pieces of the recital were played. The first of these was a "Tot-cato and Fugue" by Max Reger, a very bold and free piece of music. The work slowly built up to a Crescendo and then repeated it even more dramatically. Certainly the most noticeable feature of the whole piece was its tremendous sense of rhythm throughout. which was enough to start extensive toe-tapping in many pews, hardly the normal reaction to organ music! In the eves of most people, however, the opus of Oliver Messiaen, "Dieu Parmi Nous fLa Nativitef' was the real highlight of the evening. All ears were set, all senses alert as Mr. Preston began the opening bars of this piece. We were well rewarded, with a type of modern music, which had never been heard at the school by the boys before. It was . . . well, wild! There were loud brash passages mixed and contrasted with soft, clear streams of flowing music. The whole piece was thoroughly invigorating, and it left its mark and influence on everybody present. I have said that the highlight of the evening was Messiaen's com- position. lint, in fact, it wasn't the highlight at all. The real focal- point was the intensely talented and experienced organist who came to the school to play on our new organ. The recital was a success in all respects, and particularly beneficial in that it served as a great stimulus to all present.

BISHOP The Wgnner of the New Boys' Race -Dustan and Rowlinson 32 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE SECOND CENTENNIAL LECTURE Professor J. T. Wilson The second Centennial Lecture, held in the gym, was generally interesting to everyone present. Professor Wilson, realizing that he was dealing with a topic unfamiliar to most of the audience, tried to keep his remarks at a level at which everyone could understand. He was not entirely successful in this respect but did manage to convey certain ideas, mainly with the aid of coloured slides, of which he had a large collection. Mr. Scott introduced Professor Wilson with a general resume of the latter's life work, and a detailed definition of geophysics, the topic which Professor Wilson was dealing with in his lecture. Professor Wil- son then launched his lecture with a few words of encouragement for the future of the school. He went on to say that he would try to show that geophysics was not only interesting but also fun, and would in- volve the scientist in many adventures. Then after saying that he thought more money should be spent on space travel, he began a very long display of slides. Professor Wilson proved to be just as well at ease with slides as he had been without them. He had carefully arranged them to show first a picture or two of a certain land form and then a diagram to illustrate the method by which it had been produced. Although he may have lost the audience on several points, he managed to convey his main ideas extremely well. His only problem during the slide show was that he could not take the microphone with him over to the screen. As a result, a few people at the back of the audience could not hear him very well. This was not to Professor Wilson's detriment, for he should have been provided with a portable microphone. It became obvious that Professor Wilson had travelled widely, for he had slides of the United States, Canada, Africa, Siberia, Antarctica, and Australia, to name just a few places. As was mentioned above, he explained how the major land forms were produced with the aid of diagrams, but he did not confine himself to these diagrams alone, and often used the picture itself to illustrate some land motion. In this way. by avoiding technicalities, in some cases he made the idea clearer than he might have with geometrical diagrams. He explained, among other things, how mountains, lagoons, coral reefs, volcanoes, islands, and glaciers were formed, and how they all wore away eventually. Following the lecture, there was a brief question period in which Professor Wilson outlined plans for drilling through the bed of the ocean. Professor Wilson was a most knowledgeable man and also a fine speaker. Ile knew he was speaking to an audience almost entirely ig- norant of his topic, and did an excellent job in explaining as much as he did under the circumstances. He kept the mainly unsympathetic audience interested all the time, while dealing with what was in fact a very technical subject, and deserves a lot of credit for this.

The ground crew, consisting of one person, Professor Curry Gardner, was up at the small hours of the morning setting up the intricate mechanism for the take-off, which was slated for 2:00 P.M. that afternoon. As the time for take-off drew nearer, it was apparent that there was a faulty connection in the power system. This was soon rectified and the count-down was resumed. The time for blast-off, however, was moved ahead to 15.20 hours fat half-time of the Ridley football gamel. The weather was good except for a brisk wind, which several times nearly blew over the space-craft. Finally, at minus 26 seconds the capsule got off the ground. It soared gracefully, wavering slightly, reached a height of 800 feet, and then floated gently down to earth. Actually, the parachute didn't even open at all and the craft landed with a resounding thud! ! The cone, though, had been carefully padded, and both the astronaut and the capsule were in good condition. As soon as this news was released, the tremendous tension which had been building up exploded in great audible sighs of deep relief. Professor Curry is not content to rest on his laurels after this successful flight. No indeed. He plans another flight which will, with luck, take place next spring. It is his intention at that time that the hamster should launch HIM into outer space. THE NEW BOYS' PARTY: SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF MR. LAWSON Oh, when's this thing going to get started!

Late in September, the Features Department of the Record decided to hold a School Election just before mid-term. It was to be based on the national election, and only national issues were to be campaigned. There was a two-fold reason for this: the first was to teach the school, as a whole, both the issues in this election and how a national election is run. And the second was to keep school personalities out of the election as much as possible, in order to get a true expression as to which party the school preferred. As the campaigning began, the parties represented and their lead- ers were: Liberals -- Tim Emburyg Conservatives - Skip Willis, New Democratic Party - Mike Marshallg and last but not least Can under- statementl Social Credit - Fred Beck. Tony Whittingham acted as Chief Returning Officer. The school election campaign got off to a blazing start. Immedi- ately after Sunday lunch on Oct. 31, a large Liberal sign was lowered from the gallery above the Dining Hall. This was the trend of the day's campaigning. The Liberals were the best prepared and the best organized of the parties at the start of the campaign. Numerous Lib- eral posters were soon scattered about the school. These posters were not only more numerous than the opposing parties' fthe N.D.P. had few! but they were generally of better calibre. By Sunday evening it looked as if a Liberal landslide were in the offing. However, stiff competition appeared in the form of Fred Beck and his Social Credit Party. The Social Credit started late, almost a full day after the cam- paigning had begun, but from the very first moment of entry, Mr. Beck collected a mass of followers behind him. It was feared that his presence in the election would tend to make it a popularity contest. To a slight degree this happened. It must be said, however, apart from his impromptu soap-box style speech at dinner Tuesday night, and his attempted crash of the Liberal Rally later on in the evening, that he conducted himself very well, and turned out in the end to have a strong platform. The election was now clearly a battle between the Liberals and the Social Vredit. As the campaign entered its second day, the third and fourth forms seemed to be solidly Social Credit, and the Fifth and Sixth split to a certain degree between Liberals and Conservatives. Campaign- ing had so far largely involved only posters put up mostly by the Lib- erals and the newcomers, the Socreds. On Tuesday morning the Con- servatives put a new phase into the campaigning by distributing a sheet TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 39 of the Conservative national platform. The Social Credit soon followed suit. The Liberals, however, did not produce such a sheet until after their rally Tuesday evening. The Liberal rally was the only one of its kind in the campaign and thus got an enthusiastic audience fsome overly enthusiastic Socreds were escorted out of the proceedingsl. The rally served to give Mr. Embury a chance to outline his party's platform and policies in a more exciting way than used by the other parties. And after the rally, a list of Liberal achievements was posted outside the Dining Hall. By Tuesday evening, all parties had been heard from in one way or another, although the N.D.P. had not concentrated in poster- making. At 12:00 midnight, Tuesday, all campaigning stopped as planned. The last big occasion before the voting was the "Round Table Discussion" between the four party leaders. The discussion tended to sober the followers of the Social Credit who had formerly been under the personality cult of the leader, and turned a few away from the some- what radical platforms of that party. A short question period followed. At 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 3rd, the polls opened, and the school began to vote. Voting was done strictly according to official procedure, and the polls closed at 7:45 sharp. When the counting was finished, complete with Deputy Returning Officers and Scrutineers, the following results were obtained: 3rd Form C413 5th Form 1513 Beck fS.C.J ......... ..... 1 9 Embury fLib.J , . 32 Embury fLib.J ..... ,.... 1 0 Willis lCon.J .......... . 9 Willis lCon.J .. ....., ..... 6 Beck CS.C.J . 6 Marshall CN.D.P.J .... ,.... 6 Marshall CN.D.P.J . .. ,, 4 4th Form C611 6th Form C301 Beck fS.C.J .....,.,.. .... 2 9 Embury fLib.J .,.,.. 20 Embury CLib.J ..... ..... 1 7 Willis fCons.J ..... ...... 5 Willis CCon.D ...... 12 Beck CS.C.J H . .. 3 Marshall CN.D.P.J ............ 3 Marshall CN.D.P.D , 2 Totals C 1833 Embury CLib.J .... .... 7 9 Beck CS.C.J .......,,. .... 5 7 Willis 4fCon.J ..., 32 Marshall fN.D.P.J ., .,....... 15 Facts and Figures -183 out of a possible 190 people voted. -therefore 92921 of the school voted. -CID Liberals - 79 votes - 42.85 of pop. vote. -CID Socreds - 57 votes - 31.35 of pop. vote. -CIIIJ Conservatives - 32 votes - 17.995 of pop. vote. -QIVJ N.D.P. - 15 votes - 8.2"i of pop. vote. 'F elected to office - Embury lLiberalIb The election was a great success. Smoothly running throughout, it was well received by the school, who cooperated admirablyg and it ex- cited on the part of many, vehement political views. But perhaps its greatest accomplishment was in giving this small handful of tomorrow's voters somewhat of an insight into the workings of an election cam- paign, and of the actual voting that goes on during Election Day. To a lot of us, the election in the Constituency of T.C.S. rather upstaged the National Election of five days later. 40 TRiN1TY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD THE PARTY PLATFORMS AS OUTLINED IN THE ELECTION DEBATE The llound-Robin Debate. the only real opportunity the party leaders had to express their party's platform, was generally quite suc- cessful. 'l'im Embury. the Liberal leader, began the proceedings by say- ing he hoped the school would not make the election a farce, and would keep only to the national level of the election. Following the plan of a similar speech he had used at the Liberal rally the night before, Tim cited various achievements made by the Liberals while in power. He said that the Liberal government had lowered unemployment, increased production drastically, cut taxes by ten percent, increased the Old Age Pension, provided interest-free loans to college students, and advanced Medicare. to name just a few achievements. He closed by saying that a minority government costs money and therefore that he wanted a majority government, which he said should be Liberal. Mike Marshall, the N.D.P. leader, then took the stand. He began by saying that Fred Beck, the Socred leader, had a sixth sense to predict the election outcome, but lacked the other five senses. Skip Willis, the Conservative leader, protested and Mike continued after a rebuke from Tony Whittingham, the Chairman. Mike then went on to say that Ca- nada had not yet fully used her potential industrial and economic wealth. He quoted T. C. Douglas as saying that full employment was the key to an expanding economy. Mike said the N.D.P. would reduce unemploy- ment by providing 200,000 new jobs in four years. Agriculturally, he said the N.D.P. would institute guaranteed prices on all farm commodities and also a guaranteed income to farmers. The N.D.P. would also, he said, provide an income stabilization fund and would reduce the cost of Medi-- care, an N.D.P. invention, by S100 from S150 to 5550. He concluded by saying that all N.D.P. plans were as good as Medicare and said the voter should, if he were fed up with old politicians and feeble parties, vote N.D.P. Skip Willis, the Conservative leader, then rose to the stand and be- gan his speech by saying that the Liberals had divided the country, which had been unified under the Conservatives. He said the Conserva- tives would. if elected, institute an above-board open, published Con- federation Conference to try to patch up the problems. He said the P.C.'s would then continue to clean out the scandal from the govern- ment while also removing the 1122 sales tax on building materials and eliminating the inflation in progress. Skip continued by saying that the Conservatives would help the small farmer who was the backbone of the economy and would also not require a means test for Old Age Pension. Skip finished by saying that the "Telegram" and the "Globe and Mail" were both behind the Conservatives. The most forceful speaker of all was Fred Beck, leader of the So- cial Vredit Party, a late joiner in the election running. Fred began by violently denouncing Communism and Socialism which he considered close to the present form of government. He continued on this theme by saving that Medicare, baby-bonuses, Pensions, and similar things should be made voluntary for those who wanted them. He denounced all use of nuclear arms, saying that the money spent on nuclear warfare could be better spent in resources. Fred said he wanted Canada as an exemplary peaceful power. He went on then to describe how a Social Credit government in Alberta and British Columbia had been very suc- cessful, and thus Social Credit would be good for all Canada. Following the speeches, one question was asked of each party in TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 4-1 turn from the Floor, after which Tony Whittingham, the Chairman, de- clared that all campaigning was to cease. The voting was but two hours away. -J. E. Matheson, VA LIBERAL RALLY - SUCCESS On November 1, the Liberal Party, under the leadership of Tim Embury, held the first large scale rally in the gymnasium of the Trinity College School riding. The rally was short, to the point, and very much a success. At 9:35 of the evening, Doug Segal and "The Sparrows" livened up the crowd of close to one hundred people. Before the arrival of Mr. Embury, Henry Bull, a member of the Liberal Organization, mounted the platform to introduce the leader, but was hopelessly drowned out by the chanting of "We want Tim". Moments later Tim Embury arrived amid cheering, chanting, clapping, and noise from Sparrow Segal and the Sparrows. Mr. Frederick Beck, presently leader of the Social Credit Party, arrived unexpectedly, soon after Embury, to be greeted with a great deal of laughing and very little clapping. Mr. Embury started his campaign speech by saying how pleased he was that such a large portion of the school had turned out at the rally. He then proceeded to stress the importance of such an election, and the necessity to lift it from the school to a national level. He said that the past few days had been fun, but that now there was the serious aspect of the election to be taken and carried out responsibly. It was just about at this point that Mr. Beck, quite glum, silently crept out of the gymnasium. Mr. Embury's speech was long and articulate, in which he went to great detail to outline the policies of the Liberal Party, showing them to be in all ways superior to the other national party platforms. Near- ing the end of his address, he stressed the success of the Liberal gov- ernment's attempt to lower the trade deficit, saying that it was now at the lowest point in seven years. At this point Segal and the Spar- rows broke in with a wild fanfare of music, accompanied by the cheer- ing and clapping of the audience. When order was once again restored Mr. Embury emphatically pointed out that minority governments breed frequent elections and that elections cost a great deal of money - the tax payer's money. He emphasized the necessity of a Liberal majority and wound up his speech with the words "Help us, help you, help Canada." The Liberal Rally was a success - they were well on their way to victory. -D. B. Callum, VB1 THE SCHOOL ELECTION AS SEEN BY THE SOCIAL CREDIT We of the Social Credit feel that because the previous Record reports of the election were written by the Liberal candidate, it is logi- cal that we give our own version. The election really got under way on Monday night at dinner, when our fearless and dauntless leader of men, the Hon. Fred Beck, strode into the Dining Hall amidst wildly cheering fans. This gave the Lib- 42 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD erals their first scare. After supper, many brilliant and witty Social Credit posters were put up all over the school. It was then apparent that there was a general shift towards the Social Credit, especially among the more discerning boys. On Tuesday night. in his brilliant impromptu address, Mr. Beck an- nounced that there would be a mass Social Credit rally in the gym that night at 9:30. The Liberals, in order to counteract this Social Credit strategy. called a rally for the same time. It was then that the undemo- cratic and un-Aristotelean qualities of the Liberal party showed them- selves. For after study, the Hon. Mr. Beck and myself entered Mr. Willis' room in order to ask him a question, whereupon four Liberal strongmen, under the leadership of Fred Rupert, compelled us by force to remain in the room. Were it not for his quick thinking in jumping out the window, Mr. Beck would have missed the Rally. However, even when he arrived at the meeting, neither he nor any other Social Credi- tors were permitted to say a word. Was this democratic? That night several more strategic moves were made by the Socreds. A list of firm and definite Social Credit policies was typed out and post- ed in various advantageous positions around the school. Another re- sult of the night's work was that the next morning, a beautifully centred "BECK" could be seen on the Tuck Shop roof. The Election Debate proved a great success for Mr. Beck, who gave his sincere and carefully planned address to great advantage. From then on, any ignorant and biased ideas that Mr. Beck was attempting to make a farce out of the election were dispelled. However, we congratulate the Liberals on their victory. -J. C. P. McCallum, Secretary, Social Credit TRINITY CAMP 1965 During the first ten days of August, the eleventh annual summer camp sponsored by T.C.S. boys was held at the Pat Moss Ski Camp, un- der the direction of Father Baker. Ten T.C.S. boys, Bob Rudolf, Jim Sedgewick, Rick Heybroek, Bob Noble, Charlie Barrett, Chris Currelly, Ken Clarke, Herbie Kennedy, Mark Holton and Sam McLaughlin, acted as the full time counsellors, child-psychologists, disciplinarians, physio- therapists, bed-changers and bottle-washers for the twelve young boys who attended the camp during those hectic but rewarding ten days. On a wet Monday, the boys arrived at Cobourg, after a chaotic train trip. Tuesday proved to be a better day, so we spent the afternoon at the Vohourg beach. The counsellors found this outing particularly pro- fitable in making acquaintances with members of the opposite sex, in the anticipation that this might prove advantageous in the long fall term to come. Wednesday found us the guests of Mr. George James at Sunset Farm on Rice Lake. The campers kept themseves occupied emptyinff the lake of its stock of sunfish, while the counsellors strove valiantly to keep them provided with worms. The boys never forgot that day: the odour of dead fish still lingers on at the camp to this day. We heartily thank Mr. and Mrs. James for their generosity, it was most appreciated. The next day we toured the Presqu'ile Provincial Park, but the real highlight of the camp was Saturday, and the trip to the Vurrellys' farm. There we swam, fished, built dams, went on hay rides, rode horses, and did just about everything under the sun, as well as TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 43 eating two enormous meals. We thank Mr. and Mrs. Currelly and their entire family most warmly for a very enjoyable day. Sunday began with Communion on the kitchen table. The bread was simple ordinary Baker's bread and the wine was ordinary table wine, just as the Apostles ate and drank, only perhaps their chalice was a little cleaner than our mug. This was followed by a trip to Peterborough and a tour of the locks. Monday was our last full day, and so, since the Cobourg Beach seemed extremely popular, particularly with the staff, we made our third, and alas our last trip to the lake. Again the counsellors took good advantage of this wonderful opportun- ity to "win friends and influence peopleu, but in spite of this, the boys enjoyed themselves tremendously as well. We would like to thank Mrs. Kennedy, Judge Currelly and Mrs. Clarke for the generous use of their cars, without which all our ex- peditions would have been impossible. The Trinity Camp, however, had more positive benefits, other than just giving twelve under-privi- leged children ten days of fun and games. Almost all these boys came from homes torn apart by death, separation and poverty. Up until those ten days in August, they had known no other existence than the law of the jungle, of looking out for themselves, and caring only for themselves. Who would ever forget the "Tuesday Rebellion" when the campers, armed to the teeth with blanket-pins, tried to stage a revolt? And .P Ulm .4431 ' 512 THE PAT MOSS CAMP -J. C. C. Currelly 44 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD yet, in the space of that one short week, those same twelve campers formed together as a team to help pull poor Herbie Kennedy's "Herb- mobile" out of a ditch. To quote Mr. Scott, "a rebellious and complain- ing group of individuals became a relatively happy and harmonious group. The record of the camp speaks for itself. -H. B. Kennedy, VIB and J. C. C. Currelly, VIB THE WAR DRAWINGS IN TRINITY HOUSE The first of a series of art exhibits to be shown over the coming months at the Trinity College School Art Gallery in the Guild Room were a set of sixteen drawings by the late Montreal artist Maurice Cullen. Born in Newfoundland in 1866, Cullen received his education first in Montreal and later in Paris. During the First World War he was the official artist for Canadian War Memorials, and it is from this work that the drawings on display were chosen. His paintings, largely land- scapes, are well represented in the National Gallery in Ottawa. The drawings, in pencil, with the occasional highlight of colour, conveyed for the most part quiet scenes of barracks and towns in France and England. There was no indication in them of the violence or ten- sion of war. which should have been Cullen's main objective as a war artist. In fact in most of the drawings, it was obvious that the artist wished to illustrate only what life for the average person was like in Europe during this great struggle, and that he was not at all interested in showing the conflict of battle. Consequently if these drawings pro- posed to convey war's destruction, they failed to accomplish their pur- pose, and to many people probably appeared somewhat insipid. This first show then was not what one would call a raving success, but I hope the more spectacular shows in the future may stimulate more controversy. -H. O.

Nations, religions, business organizations fall because they are too firmly rooted to tra- dition to make the changes vitally necessary for their continuance. What is worse, they neglect to honour the needs and opinions of their members. For any institution which seeks to benefit those under its influence change must come from within by its members. T.C.S. as an independent school has the power Cwith certain restrictionsj to set its own standards, policies, and code of ethics. Furthermore. it has the power to alter its policies and standards quickly and without re- sistance found in the vast public school system. Accordingly, an in- dependent school such as T.C.S. should be much more prone to change, and therefore much more progressive than is indicated by the tradi- tional image of the private school. Criticism is an integral part of progress, since only through the active expression of opinion can an institution take account of its con- stituents. The need for constructive criticism cannot be over-empha- sised, for without the presence of opinion, there is only apathy, and no progress is possible. T.C.S. is a reasonably progressive school. If it is not more so, this is because there is a lack of desire among the boys to change these standards and policies which they think ought to be changed. Ultimately, this power rests in the hands of the student body. since the school exists for the benefit of its students. In many cases. divergence of opinion limits the possibility of great change in one direc- tion or another, but there is always a point of compromise. and a point of compromise is always better than no change at all. The important thing is to maintain a desire for progress, and a respect for opiniong criticism is tremendously valuable if treated correctly. It would seem appropriate to pause at the outset of the school's second century and assess its character, attitude, and place in the modern world. Viewpoints on several subjects relevant to the T.C.S. of to-day are presented in the Centennial sectiong the opinion poll, it is hoped, gives a fair indica- tion of the climate of opinion in the school towards some of the various dimensions of school life. By themselves, these attempts mean little. for they cannot hope to span the breadth of worthwhile opinion in the 50 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD school. llowever. their purpose is rather to stimulate thought and con- sideration, and perhaps, to provoke useful comment and criticism. It could be that more organs for expression of opinion are needed at T.C.S.g we encourage the promotion of constructive criticism and hope to see more in the future. -P.G.B.G.

The majority of the school favours the private over the public school system, and feels strongly about its benefits. Opinion is divided, however, as to whether the private school is a breeding ground for snobbery and conformity. The school approves of the L.B.F. and considers it beneficial, al- though some concede its snobbish attitude and athletic inferiority. Opinion is largely in favour of the present set-up at T.C.S. Cdespite loud cries from vigorous dissentersl. Notable is the strong support given the Prefect-New Boy system and the exercise of discipline. It is felt that there is a lack of cultural stimulus and activity at T.C.S. The Little Big Four lThe following is an excerpt from a letter written to the Editor-in- Chief by Mr. A. H. Griffith, of Ridley College. We are deeply indebted to him for the information which he gathered for usb "The term Little Big Four was dreamed up, not from any one of the schools, but by a Toronto newspaper man who coined the term to contrast the "little" league of the four independent schools to the "big league of Hamilton, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. It referred at first of course to football - or Canadian Rugby as it then was - but was later applied to cover all sports in which the four schools competed against one another. I think it could be fairly said that the schools all liked the expression and accepted it enthusiastically, but I don't think any school set out to create a Little Big Four per se. All were were try- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 53 ing to do was play as many games as possible with each other." "May I repeat that the League, if such it is, was never founded officially. Like the British Constitution - it just grew, but without any Magna Carta, or any other Cartas for that matter." Pro The Little Big Four is a league of four schools, Ridley College, St. Andrew's College, Upper Canada College, and Trinity College School. These schools compete in football, tennis, squash, hockey, basketball. swimming, debating, and cricket. Is the LBF a valuable league which should be preserved, or is it an ultra-exclusive and unrealistic organiza- tion which must be disbanded? Some people look upon the Little Big Four as a league which car- ries a false sense of superiority and a snobbish attitude towards other schools. The LBF is composed of four of the wealthiest schools in Canada, and no other school is permitted to join this exclusive league - the league for the rich boys. These people believe that this ex- clusiveness would be fair enough if the standard of play of less affluent schools was not up to LBF standards. At the time of the founding of the LBF, the standard of play of these four schools was far superior to any other schools. However. since that time, high schools and other private schools have been catch- ing up. Many of them, mainly owing to their large numbers, now have extremely good teams. High school teams have often beaten LBF schools in recent years, and yet they are still denied admittance into the Little Big Four. It would seem that if a school is good enough. it should be allowed to join the League. It would appear that the LBF is cultivating an atmosphere of snobbery and false superiority in re- fusing entrance to such schools as Jarvis and Appleby, both of which have beaten us in football. Why do the LBF schools refuse entrance to such schools as these? The answer is simple. In time, the newcomers would probably win. If the LBF were open to any school that wished to join, what chances would any present LBF school have against high schools of over 1500 students? It is not that high school students are naturally better ath- letes than private school students. It is simply that high schools have far more players at their disposal from which to choose. For this rea- son the Little Big Four schools cannot afford to admit other schools which may have five times as many students as themselves. At any rate, think of the Little Big Four League in which there are ten schools. The name would obviously have to be changed. And if the name of the league, which has existed as long as the league itself, is changed, and if the .number of members is more than doubled, then what is left of the original Little Big Four? Nothing. It would be a completely different league, retaining none of its previous identity. The present LBF schools would gradually fade into the anonymity of a "Southern Ontario High School League". For these reasons it appears that the Little Big Four cannot admit other schools, if even one school. such as Appleby, were admitted, the LBF would lose much of its identity. One might say that even so, the LBF should admit other schools: that if it cannot compete against large high schools, it should not at- tempt to preserve a league of its own which dares not admit other 54 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD schools. One might say that the LBF should not attempt to live in its own little world, a world of snobbery and false pretensions. This is not true. The winner of the Little Big Four does not contend to be the best high school team in Ontario unless it has proved itself to be so. It merely is the best of the four LBF schools. It does not show any feelings of superiority to other teams, which it has not played. As l have pointed out, the LBF must remain exclusive if it is to remain in existence. There is, therefore, no justification in criticizing the Little Big Four for its snobbery and exclusiveness. It is in no way a snobbish leagueg for although the winner of the Little Big Four might consider itself superior to the other LBF schools, it does not con- tend to be superior to other Ontario schools. The Little Big Four is simply a private league between four schoolsg and although it wishes to remain private, it does not carry with it any attitudes of superiority or snobbery. -J. C. P. McCallum, IVA Con The Little Big Four is a league of snobs, poor losers and status seekers. Opinions such as these have been repeatedly expressed by critics of the LBF, and in this essay, I hope to prove that not only are such convictions justified, but also that the Little Big Four should de- finitely be disbanded. In recent years having a boy at one of the LBF schools has be- come a status symbol. People want to display the fact that they can afford to send their sons to an expensive boarding school which is a member of a so-called "elite" union. I see nothing wrong with this if the LBF is indeed superior to its rival schools both public and pri- vate, but it is my belief that the four schools offer little more in the way of education and athletics than other schools. It is true that be- ing largely boarding schools, they can afford to spend more time on these two areas than other schools, but this is largely dependent on the desires of the individual student. In most cases, high schools have more up-to-date equipment than private schools, since the private schools cannot rely on government assistance. As well as all this, the standard of teaching is certainly not superior to that of public schools. Some parents argue that the reason they sent their sons to LBF schools is that they offer far more extra-curricular activities than pub- lic schools. To a certain extent, this is true, but the boys who are heavily involved in clubs make up about twenty per cent of the students, leaving the other eighty per cent doing next to nothing. People also believe that being an Old Boy of an LBF school will give a bov a good start in life. It will be "the key to which no door is locked." Perhaps this is true, but if it is, it seems to be grossly unfair that if a boy goes to a distinctive school, he should have a better start into life than a less privileged boy. What about the league itself? Is there any usefulness in it? I cannot help feeling slightly sick to my stomach when I hear some apparent authority on the Little Big Four say, "The LBF provides keen. even competition for its members, and in doing so, bolsters the spirit of the schools." In many cases, due to the size of the school, or due to the coaching of the team, or various other factors, the competition TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 55 is far from eveng and in some sports, cricket for example, it could hardly be called keen. This fact about the quality of the competition does not bother me as much as the type of spirit which has grown up over the years. There is indeed spirit, but in my opinion, it is directed against other schools, rather than towards one's own. This is exem- plified by cheers ridiculing others, and even more so, by the acts of violence and property damage which often occur when one school visits another. Is this a desirable form of spirit? Perhaps in years gone by when there was a lack of organized sports on a team level in other schools the LBF had its usefulness, but it is my opinion that it has outlived its need. I propose that the LBF should disband and join with the Central Ontario Secondary Schools Associa- tion or some similar organization which can offer a far wider and fairer scale of competition. It is my feeling therefore that a select group of four schools at a secondary school level is not only ludicrous, but is detrimental to the schools themselves. -G. R. Strathy, VA Chapel Pro "To go, or not to go," if I may paraphrase this great cliche, is the question before us now. Many people have criticized the school policy before, and I guess they will continue to do so. Even though the Chap- lain has 'wangled' a more lenient decision, a few are leading many of us to believe they are dissatisfied. I would be willing to wager that over 90 per cent of the student body are satisfied with the weekday services a11d Sunday evening services. If the whole system were volun- tary, those who did not attend would certainly not find anything better to do. There are those who would argue that there are certain atheists or agnostics who should not be forced to attend. Well, I say that a person who refuses to attend chapel should be refused the right to at- tend the school. Everyone of us knew vaguely what the school was like before we came here. Even our school's name suggests religion. The atheist who attends a school such as ours does so by his own choice. and must put up with it. The agnostic, by admission, doesn't know about, or is undecided about religion, so he shouldn't quibble if we try to show him our side. The school was originally founded to produce young men for the ministry, and now it seems that we are producing the extreme opposite. The chapel services should be compulsory, not as punishment but as a guide by which we can mould ourselves. I'm sure that everyone ap- preciates a few minutes, every day, of peace and quiet. Where else can you be alone in a crowd, or in a crowd, alone? -R. R. Lind, IVA Con Our Chapel is considered to be beautiful by most, the most beauti- ful by many. Its many windows and its simple structure lend a feeling of brightness and purity to the whole interior. No impression of mould 56 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD or age is ever suggested, and yet this is the place where the oldest School tradition rests untouched. The building is visited by most returning Old Boys, for in it they find a link between the School as they remember it. and the way it is now. Very little has changed. The building is full of traditions, some still meaningful, many we should have let die with the grace and dignity they deserved. But no, we keep them all, repeating them service by service, draining the life- blood from them until they will all fade away from want of nourishment. New ideas abound along with new expressions of the old way, but these are rarely found in our beautiful chapel. We have made it into a beau- tiful monument to a long respected tradition, but we have denied it the beauty of function, and our visits there assume more and more the so- briety of a visit to a loved-one's tomb. If the building were alive, I'm sure it would hate its job. We have given it the task of guarding a truth, and yet a truth should need no protection. We have made it, by construction, a light and pleasant building, and yet in it we chant lifeless tunes which carry words of for- gotten meanings. It holds Within its walls a Religion meant to show us "the Wayn. Why then is there never a discussion? Why are no opinions voiced, ideas exchanged, or rarely even thoughts provided? Learning doesn't involve blind acceptance. Learning means asking questions and analysing answers, and yet there are no questions, and frequently only dogmatic, hackneyed answers. Oh, reforms come now and then. We visit less frequently than we did a year ago, and occasionally new rhythms are applied to invigorate old rhymes, but these efforts are few and their effects soon erased when we return to the rut. Sermons are an opportunity to put forward some ideas, and many do take advantage of that chance. But along with these come those with tired worn-out themes that make the ten-minute allotment stretch out into hours. Never in my memory has a student spoken in chapel, and it is a very rare occasion when a man, not of the clerical order, is invited here to speak. The opinion is therefore very one-sided. A heal- thy argument will never develop. Ideas and criticisms will remain in the students' mind, never to be challenged, never to be constructive. But what does the student care? Religion is locked in the Chapel a few yards away, freeing him of any obligation to it, and preventing it from helping him perhaps to see things more clearly. How can it help him with his problems when it has no wish to hear them? The student, to a great extent, does not care. If he has problems, he can turn to friends or teachers or family. Chapel is just to be tolerated until gradu- ation and then forgotten afterwards. To those in charge of Chapel, this attitude must be most discouraging. Even open criticism would be better than indifference, and yet indifference is what Chapel's mono- tonous routine will foster. Hut don't be angry at the Chapel for the hours of boredom it can give. The vitality and purpose once so crucial to our religion has been locked in this building, waiting to die. It isn't the Chapel's fault that it has such a futile role to play, nobody likes to be a monument. If active religion has moved to English Class, or to that book you're reading, follow it there. It has escaped from Chapel and wants to live again. -A. A. Barnard, VIA TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 57 An Extract from a New Bov's Letter to His Bird Most people think that there are two classes of boys at T.C.S. - Seniors and Juniors. On the surface this is true, but deep within the school's heart is another class of boys, shunned, the object of numerous jokes and wisecracksg these boys are the true backbone of the school, they are the New Boys. These boys are the chosen few who give the spirit to the school. You may laugh now, but the next time you are at a school football game, look at who is cheering wildly, as T.C.S. makes a touchdown, who is on the verge of tears as T.C.S. is scored upon? And while the teams are battling it out, who cheers with passion in his voice? - the New Boy. Many Old Boys feel the New Boys are getting off very easily, but rest assured we are getting it even worse than they did. In this mod- ern day and age the New Boy is called upon by his Fagmaster to shine not one pair of shoes but two and sometimes three, if he is lucky. We are supposed to be neat and tidy, happy, gay and smart all the time. Anyway, that's what the Head 'fect says every year during the Rock- Talk. If you are interested in psychology or human behaviour you ought to be present at the Rock-Talk. All the New Boys are there, for obvious reasons, sitting down, outwardly shaking and pale with fear, but inside almost sick with laughter. The 'fects looked so tough, like bigtown greasers, except they were in suits and had haircuts. Everybody fthe New Boys aren't anything, we're nothing! walks around very haught- ily, and shouts at nothings, and tells nothings how ugly they are, and how disgusting and loathsome they are. I must admit I didn't think the everybodies had that big a vocabulary. They even used 'loathsome' two or three times. They tried so hard to impress us, but failed. I was only up for a month, but I was proud because that's the most anyone got. Getting up is a term which around the school is considered very conversational. It is one from which you get the gruesome story of who got you up on that morning and eventually leads to what you had to do. I will relate a typical scene at the morning table. Old Boy: "Well who'd you get up for this morning?" New Boy, very tired, replies: "That CENSORED on Middle Bethune." Old Boy: "What's his name?" New Boy: "I don't know and I couldn't really care." Old Boy: "You'd better find out." New Boy: "Yes, Would help. Know what the bum made me do?" Old Boy: 'What?" New Boy, passionately: "Run around that CENSORED track four times, and do two pair of shoes! Good grief, what a perfectionist! and gubbin a pair of lousy football boots for about the fifth time in as many ays." This has been a typical conversation at every table between a New Boy and an Old Boy. If you listen carefully you can hear the same conversation at every table, in varying degrees, of course. The New Boy's day is relatively free until three-fifteen, when he has to fag for his "fagmaster". A "fagmaster" is a School 'fect or a House 'fect. Some are good, and some are bad. I got a real .... well. I can't say. You should have seen him in the "Rock Talk". He almost 58 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD laughed out loud. This other great big Somebody made some cute re- mark about a top button being pressed or something and it was funny. This other somebody who's my "fagmaster" almost cracked up, but I ditln't. l knew better. A nobody beside me had before. He got about five days. My "t'agmaster" makes me do all sorts of sharp things. I sometimes shine his shoes, or lately I have been cutting out clippings about the election. I got this really neat doo-dad that cuts out really well and fast. I brought back a pair of shoes once at 5:30, I think it was. and the guy my fagmaster rooms with got a really neat letter. He read part of it out loud to my fagmaster. 'Fects sure are lucky. They can swing anything by being a "school representative". I think I'll have to try one day soon. From that moment on, the New Boy is free, if he hasn't bungled up something, or if he hasn't got New Boys' Gym. This takes place after chapel. The Gym team is in the gym to teach us Gymnastics. What a laugh! I am so uncoordinated. By that time, I am almost asleep anyway, so it doesn't matter if they yell and scream. They go all red and lose all self-control. I am a failure. After lights out, the fun really begins. We have big joke sessions. There's one guy in the dorm who knows about a trillion jokes. It's pretty cool. The 'fects think they got us all squished, but we nothings will gettum tl hopel. -S. N. K. Lambert, IVBI rr,-'er Q liz..

Con- tained in the next few pages are only a handful of essays, but essays which cover a wide range of interest, from theatre review to foreign affairs. They have been printed to inspire controversy, and to inspire thought, both of which need a tremendous buoying up at T.C.S. Opin- ions must be stated, and stated logically and plainly, or else everything becomes snowed under in a shroud of platitudes. "Comment and Criti- cism" is a new section, aimed at creating a free mouthpiece for the expression of diversified views on any number of controversial topics. It is a section devoted to opinion. Whether or not it is "hot air" is up to you. THE LOS ANGELES RIOT This essay does not concern what damage was done by the Los Angeles riot or by whom, but why it was done and what result it had. Now before the riot had ended, sociologists, educators, psychologists, civil-rights leaders, and politicians, among others, were thinking about the causes. Most of them came up with the same answer: the frus- tration and hopelessness of the Negro-locked ghetto. But why this, one might ask. Let us see why. By the time the riot ended, there was the traditional hunt for a scapegoat. At the time, the handiest person was Chief of Police Wil- liam H. Parker. So the Negroes blamed him for everything while ra- tionalizing their own deeds. Now whether or not the complaint was justified, there was plenty of evidence, which Los Angeles and its officials had chosen to ignore that showed trouble was brewing in Watts. The Director of the Los Angeles County Human Relations Commission revealed, and I would like to quote his report, that "Not 1000 Negroes out of 461,000, in the ghetto area alone, believe that there is equal distribution of justice to whites and Negroes." Earlier in the year the California Advisory Com- mittee to the Commission on Civil Rights levelled the following accusa- tions at the Los Angeles Police Force: "Excessive violence at the time of arrest, greater surveillance and arrests among minority groups: ar- 60 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD rest ot' Negroes and Mexican-Americans for conduct for which others were not arrested: discourteous or uncivil language and behavior on the part ol' the policeg and an unwillingness and inability to distinguish between law-abiding and potentiallv law-breaking minority groups". At the same time Martin Luther King said, after touring Negro dis- tricts in Los Angeles, "There is unanimous feeling that there has been police brutality". But no one has been able to cite any flagrant ex- amples or cases. One might therefore agree that a Negro rioter had then the right To say. "Parker is no good at all. His cops take the Negro down to the station and work him over. This time they did it in the open, and that's why it started right here and didn't stop." Naturally this criticism grates on the nerves of Chief Parker. Last winter his report flatly stated that "The false prophets fail to consider that ANY condition which contributed to chaos' in other parts of the country would not exist in Los Angeles." But it seems as if it did. On the other hand, the effect was far-reaching and dramatic. It is obvious that through six major race riots since 1917, they have dis- covered :i convenient, if desperate device to draw attention to their plight. Three months ago, no one had heard of Watts. Now a big- name commission, headed by former CIA Chief John D. McCone, is looking into the problems which everyone else has ignored for years, while 22 million dollars in federal anti-poverty funds are on their way to Watts and the rest of Los Angeles' Black Channel. And after all. as pointed out by a 19-year-old rioter, "What Watts needed was rebuildin'. Now we made sure they're gonna have to re- build it. And it's gonna mean jobs for Negroes here, like me and my old man." But if the people of Watts and a good number of sympathetic Ne- groes elsewhere took pride in their bloodv outburst, there is far more reason to count it a tragic setback for the Negro and the nation. I would like to quote President Johnson on the subject. He said in unusually stern tones. "It bore no resemblance to the struggle for Civil Rights that has ennobled the past decade. A rioter with a Molotov cocktail in his hand is not fighting for civil rights any more than a Klansman with a sheet on his back and a mask on his face. They are both lawbreakers, destrovers of constitutional rights and liberties, and ultimately destroy- ershof free America. They must be exposed and they must be dealt wit ." And so. the white man, cop or shop-keeper, was attacked because he was svmbolic of Negro deprivation rather than because his skin was white. The trouble makers in Watts could have claimed scores of vic- tims if racial vengeance had been their aim, as stated by one Watts wo- man, "This wasn't no race riot. It was a riot between the employed and tthe unerlnployed. We are tired of being shelved and told we don't wan to wor ." t A Negro .heavyweight fighter went on to say, "It was plain steal- ing. 'lhe police could have stopped it when it started but they were scared. So they watched the people loot stores." So according to psychiatrist J. Alfred Cannon, "The mood in Watts last month smelled less of defeat than of victory and new power. They have developed a feeling of potency. They feel that the whole world 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 61 is watching now. And out of violence, no matter how wrong, they have developed a sense of pride." Meanwhile one can summarize the cause of these riots with the words of the Chief of Police for Los Angeles, William H. Parker. For he said, "We're on top, and they're on the bottom." This is the Ne- groes' complaint, and they claim it has ever been such. -R. L. Cawley, IVA THE MISCHIEF OF THE VIRTUOUS Since the beginning of time, there have always been two groups of men: the crusaders and everybody else. The latter have always been around. In fact. we would find it rather hard to exist without this majority. But this group is not a very influential or exciting society. It is very average and riddled with faults. Its members are human. Other men - a very small minority - find it hard to accept the mediocrity of the average man. They have conceived an ideal man -- a goal that they try to impose upon the human race. In their quest for perfection they adopt a dogma and live by it. They in fact become the living embodiment of this dogma. To them, ordinary joys exist no longer. Theirs is a duty to mankind. In forsaking their own hu- manity, they forget everyone else's, and scorn human foibles. Although their ideals and ambitions are high, the methods they use are generally low. Innocent blood has been shed by the gallon through the "mischief of the virtuous" fThackerayJ. It has been reckoned that more lives have been lost, more damage done through the actions of the idealist. Witness the Crusades and the Inquisition. This is not just a fault that one reads in history books, this is a theme of mankind. The latest crusade that we see most obviously is the Communist movement. It has an ideal citizen. It has a dogma. It has a plan for humanity. In fact, the Communists exhibit all the characteristics of the chauvinistic crusader. Most tragically, they have contempt and intolerance for human weakness. This makes their move- ment dangerous in its consequences. We ourselves, as democracies, are not free from being crusaders. In the Spanish-American War we fought not for our strategic interests, but the Great and Wonderful Democratic Dream. Batista may be gone, but we now have Castro in his place. And we are doing the same in our war in South Vietnam. Instead of being a battle of strategic in- terests, it is a battle of ideologies - Democracy versus Communism. Each is intolerant of the other. We cannot reach a compromise in Nietnam or anywhere else if we approach the problem on that basis. We cannot expect the Communists to be tolerant, if we are not tolerant ourselves. For not only are we fighting Communism, we are also fighting Chinese or Russians, or who- ever they may be. There are other heritages and influences moving them that are not out of "Das Kapital". They are men too, with very much in common with ourselves. Until we realize this, and adopt our foreign policies accordingly, we cannot help but be pushed into a final World War. Our only salvation lies in basing our relations with other countries on political self-interest. not on theoretical ideologies. We must leave that for the pipe dreams in front of the fire. T -J. C. K. Stobie. VIA 62 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE HUNGER PROBLEM IN THE WORLD TODAY One ot' the greatest and most important problems in the world today is hunger. Though gravely important, little has or is being done to better the situation, except by a few responsible individuals and organizations, one ot' the more prominent among them being the United Nations. For people living in the generally comfortable status of the Western World, it is difficult to imagine what it is like to go hungry for days on end. But to the masses of starving and dying people in Asia and the East, hunger is very real indeed. Life, for the short while it lasts, is not a pleasure, but a long torturous ordeal of agony and pain. It is known fact that over half of the world's population goes hungry to bed every night. Yet what is being done to help the under-developed countries? Though organizations can do much to help, it is impossible for them to get even near to the solution of the problem if they do not have the support of the population of the Western World, particularly financial support. Without this support, their progress may be greatly re-- tarded. There are many small luxuries which could easily be dispensed with at a minute cost to the average European and North American. The money spent on these items Could be better used to help the hunger problem. How easy it is for us to talk about hunger and not to do anything about it! But if we are to build a better world, free from hunger and the associated poverty and disaster, we must go one step further than talking, and do something about it. The Western World is faced with a responsibility of helping these people. It is its duty to the world, not only politically, but for the sake of humanity. If we fail to meet the challenge, the world may in the near future enter upon another Dark Age, unparalleled in the history of man. -T. J. T. Ringereide, IIIA THE AIMS OF EDUCATION Our education system today is in a mess. This is most likely due to the fact that the times have changed and the textbooks haven't. TO- day, we are living in a world in which the sum of human knowledge is expected to double within ten years, and yet somehow, people feel We should "proceed slowly" with curriculum reform. If we narrow our scope to that of the Ontario Board of Education, CI mean, greatly narrow our scopel, we see that even they have diffi- culty in prescribing a province-wide course of study. For example, the history course learned by someone in Ottawa has little similarity to that which is learned by someone in Toronto or Sault Ste. Marie. Heaven only knows what they are studying in Quebec or British Columbia! However, it is not merely a matter of changing our courses of study, but rather of changing the aims of our courses of study. As Kurt Hahn suggests, we should be trying to encourage at least three things. These are: a sense of public spirit, the power of collecting valid evidence, and TRINITY COLLEGE SCHUOL RECORD 63 the power of doing what you think is right, even against popular opin- ion to the contrary. Our schools should not be mass-producing "dollar-chasers," but rather citizens with a sense of public spirit who work together for the good of the community, and eventually for the good of society itself. Our present world has a surfeit of graspy materialists, and we should try not to foster them. Perhaps a sense of public spirit will best be in- sgtilled by a study of the Athenian ideal, contrasted with the Communist 1 ea. Also, our schools should be showing students the usefulness of col- lecting solid evidence to validate an opinion. After all, democracy Chope- fullyj assumes this, if it is to function at its best. The most important of Hahn's ideals is the third. That is, our schools should be training students to exercise the power of doing what they feel is right at all times. Surely this is vitally important in our present age of conformity. If young people grow up without the strength of their own convictions, they will be able to be led and mani- pulated in any way that our society wants. The fourth ideal that I feel should be promulgated in our educa- tional system is that of teaching the student to discriminate between the good and the mediocre in art. By art, I refer to the seven arts and their products. Our governmental system demands more of the indi- vidual than any other system, and I firmly believe that a society of citi- zens, who have the courage of their convictions and the ability to dis- criminate among works and ideas, can never fail. -F. A. Rowlinson, VIA WHAT INTEGRATION HAS DONE FOR CANADA'S FORCES In the past years many governments in the Western World have expressed doubt as to the efficiency of their armed forces, when they are divided into three separate spheres of action, land, sea, and air. In past experiences, the inability and the unwillingness of the Army, Navy and Air Force to act as one unit has caused much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair in the upper circles of the services, and needless bloodshed in the lower areas. Now after many months of study and planning, the Ministry of Defence in Canada has proposed a radical new policy, integration of the three services. Defence Minister Paul Hellyer, in his White Paper on Defence, has proposed the following main changes in administration. First, the powers of Deputy Defence Minister are to be extended to provide him with more say in defence policies, formerly decided on by the Minister alone. Second, a Chief of Staff is to be appointed with an integrated command under his direction. As Chief of Staff he will be able to at- tend to all detailed organization without interference from various people and committees. Third, roughly ten thousand administrative personnel are to be removed from the services in the next three or four years, by failure to fill vacancies made through ordinary retirement. Fourth, the militia is to be cut by twenty-three thousand men, bringing the total forces of the nation to forty-eight thousand five hundred and sixtv-one men, to support a regular army of forty-eight thousand men. divided into four infantry brigade groups with supporting personnel. Fifth, all military objectives and missions are to be grouped together in long-range plans to be reviewed yearly. Sixth, bases in Sydney, Nova 6-1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Scotia, and Vancouver are to be disbanded, as they are judged obsolete. Any ships that are obsolete are to be scrapped and their men spread about the fleet, to top off the complements of other major units. Seventh, equipment and modification of all three services is proposed, to be ac- complished by the spending of savings created by the above cuts, which are expected to top one billion dollars in the next ten years. Eighth, the services will work in close cooperation, and according to standards and rules set down by the Ministry of Defence. A system of sharing execu- tive officers in the fields of supply and personnel is to be introduced. These were the major intentions of integration, but to these were added many others rated as being less important, for example, changes in housing plans, uniform badges of rank, and promotion standards. Integration indeed has brought about many of the changes stated previously, which are extremely beneficial to the forces, as well as to the economy. Thanks to integration, the ratio of office workers to field personnel has been equalized. Originally there had been too many people doing one job, thus sometimes causing immeasurable confusion. The cuts in the militia and useless establishments have reduced defence expendi- tures and lessened the burden on the traininig sections of the forces, both badly needed changes. Keeping in mind the Prime Minister's concept of Canada in the role of arbitrator, with a small highly mobile, highly- trained force, the three services have received new equipment and mod- ernization. The fact that most people take as being indicative of the success of Hellyer's plans is the savings made during the last year. The difference between the 1963 defense budget and the 1964 budget was one hundred and fifty million dollars. This is what has been accomplished to better the armed forces, but there are many things about which the general public is not informed. Despite pleas by the services for better pay and some of the benefits civilians receive, very little has been done. A Naval Captain working an eight hour day, and with more responsibilities than an average business executive, can earn only 12,000 dollars per annum, compared to the twen- ty or thirty thousand earned by an executive. Promotion is slow for all services, but especially for those of the lowest deck or administrative branch. The chances of ever rising in commissioned rank, having come from the lower deck, are very small. There are many forty to fifty-year- old lieutenants to prove this point. For the administrator, although he may have a good record, and have proved himself competent and reliable, the chances of his ever reaching flag rank are slim indeed. Because of this lack of future, and the ruthless and callous attitude of the govern- ment in "retiring" men well before their time, yet too old to acquire a good job in civilian life, the recruiting figures have dropped to a low fif- teen people per month to fill, in the case of the navy, one hundred vacan- cies. Unless the influx of men picks up, ships will have to be removed from active service to rot away, because of our inability to man them. The army and navy are bitter because they do not feel they will get a fair shake with an air force man running the promotion bureau. All three share an active dislike for the necessity of sharing supply officers and having to operate according to a fixed manual. A naval officer did not join the navy to follow a land army, nor did an air force officer join the air force to go to sea. None of the services wish to change their uniforms or rank insignias. These are age-old institutions and it is always hard to discard tradition. This would also bring about the destruction of the once distinct individuality of each service which has promoted a healthy competition among the armed forces. The Navy TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 65 in particular dislikes the new housing system which places an extra burden on many of the wives whose husbands are away for a large part of the year, at sea. In conclusion, it can be said that integration has had a beneficial effect on our forces. For once we have a cohesive service ready to act for us, and one which we can be proud of to uphold our image. One must remember that integration is in its early stages, and therefore many weaknesses will have to be corrected before it will be considered complete. We can only hope that the government will modify the sys- tem, and add some new changes and plans to make it agreeable to most of those whom it will affect. -W. H. Elcock, VA THE LAST BULLET When will the last bullet fly? WHEN will the senseless slaughter of wars cease? We recoil at the thought of the Aztecs sacrificing thou- sands of people to their Gods, but we 'civilized' men have sacrificed millions in wars. The only differences are the rationalizations. Instead of sacrificing humans to appease the wrath of the Gods, we have done the same type of thing in the name of 'freedom' and 'democracy'. Man- kind is scientifically and technologically in the twentieth century, but we have the moral and spiritual values of a caveman. In about three thousand years of history there have been only two hundred years of peace. This is a shameful record. War today is more terrible than it ever was. Science has put toys Cnuclear weaponsl into the hands of little boys Cgenerals, premiers, and presidentsj, who don't know their proper use Cwar is not onel. War has become too dangerous to play withg one button could launch a war that might kill seven hundred and fifty million people, with most of the survivors wishing they were dead too. Some people say the Nuclear War is impossible, because no nation would dare to drop the bomb. There are several reasons why I believe there is grave possibility of nuclear warg one of the major reasons is the way the Chinese have been talking lately. They say that China could endure an Atomic War with much less damage than the United States or Russia. This signifies that they think they would gain by starting a War. China does not possess many atomic weapons now, but this situation probably won't last for long. The nations of the world spend about one hundred and twenty bil- lion dollars on defence each year. Think of the good use this money could be put to. I think that now is the time for all the nations of the world to unite, and build a better world for everyone. -P. T. Murton, IIIA OUTWARD BOUND "Outward Bound" is a philosophy which was developed by the Bri- tish Navy at the lowest ebb of their Second World War effort. Sailors were found to be giving up the will to live, when their ships were sunk, long before their natural capacity to endure was reached. The Navy believed the problem was rooted in the sailors' ignorance of their own abilities, and thus thev defeated themselves before they had tried. A very rigorous course in resourcefulness and survival technique was de- 66 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD signed. to try men to their limit, so that they might prove to them- selves that "there is more in you". The Navy's war against the Germans is over, but every summer, Outbound Schools throughout the world wage war against the same apathy which grips the younger generation today. Last July I attended such a school on Hurricane Island off the stormy coast of Maine. Every morning at 5:30 A.M., we were dragged out of bed, and led on a mile run about the camp, climaxed by a twenty-foot jump into 48-degree water. Then we had breakfast. One miserable windy morning, the twelve boys including myself who made up our "watch", or group, were put in a whale-boat, equipped with oars, and towed two miles down- stream. Then we were cut loose, and told that lunch was served at twelve, and that if we knew what was good for us, we would be back on time. Then we were left alone. That was our first lesson in Seaman- ship and navigation. A "watch" was a unit of twelve boys, ranging from 16 to 23 years of age, picked at random throughout the American continent, from every segment of the social ladder. My "watch", for example, contained three Negroes, a Puerto Rican, a boy with an illegitimate son, four "prep" schoolers from New England, three university students and a school drop-out, each of these from a different state. There was only one other foreigner - a Canadian - besides me, in the whole camp. But despite this, the movement is truly international, and there wasn't a single flag to be seen anywhere on the island. Everything we did, we did together as a watch. When any one boy hesitated, we were all delayedg when any one boy refused to do his share, the load was heavier on the rest. Drown-proofing was one ac- tivity hated by one and all alike. This required each boy to attempt to pass difficult tests simulating cramps, by practicing an energy-pre- serving stroke, which has become greatly acclaimed in recent years. The stroke was easy enough if you happen to know how to swim, and can relax in the water, but nobody likes being suspended in 58-degree spring water over long stretches of time. One day one of the boys in my watch, Chico, who couldn't swim, refused to enter the water. The re- maining eleven undressed him, and threw him into the lake. Half a minute later he was out again, frantically searching through his pockets for his knife. It had wisely been removed! Then he turned to the rest of us, and with tears in his eyes, threatened that he would stab us all in our sleep. For me personally, meeting someone like this was the most valuable part of the course. Until then, like so many other of my friends, I had never really mingled with anyone outside of my own so- cial and racial background. What then is the Outward Bound movement trying to do? It is trying to train young men "through the sea, for life", to make this generation more aware of their own abilities and short-comings, to bet- ter themselves, and to instil in them a sense of public spirit and duty. It does this through its students, with unique and dangerous daring tasks, like scaling a seventy-foot cliff, running a six-mile race, or com- pleting a mile swim, in which he is challenged to strive and not yield. 'I':2lt'Il evening, a student was delegated to find a suitable short se- lection from the school library, dealing with what he thought Outward Bound was: and he would read it the next morning to the assembled camp. Students were picked at random, and so were the readingsg so they seemed completely disjointed, with no semblance of direction. But TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 67 now, in retrospect, I think I am able to discern some threads of con- tinuity which I believe might be called the Outward Bound philosophy: to give completely of oneself, to the service of one's community, is the noblest way of life. It is a frustrating philosophy, abused by an unap- preciative publicg it is a reaction to an apathetic society, where murders have taken place before crowds of spectatorsg it is an individual freedom practiced throughout the world, regardless of political boundaries. In the United States there are two other such camps, one in the wilds of Minnesota and the other high in the mountains of Colorado. Their facilities are used by the Peace Corps after the summer months, for much the same purpose: to teach young men "To Serve, To Strive and Not To Yield". -H. B. Kennedy, VIB A SURFACE LOOK AT STRATFORD'S JULIUS CAESAR One of the productions staged this summer at Stratford was Shake- speare's Julius Caesar, directed by Douglas Rain. The acting was gen- erally good. Bruno Gerussi as Mark Anthony was, in my estimation. particularly convincing fand was well interpreted by the directory. Everybody has heard his famous speech "Friends, Romans, countrymen, etc." so often that they begin to get tired of it. I had expected that these lines, and other well-known lines like them, would be spoken softly, and that they would lull me to boredom, but Gerussi, in almost yelling them, really brought them alive, which was a new concept to me - and a good one. Julius Caesar, played by Joseph Shaw, was the central figure in only the first third of the play. In Shaw's portrayal of him, I was sud- denly struck, as never before, by the real tragedy of Caesar's overween- ing ambition. William Hutt played Brutus, portraying him adequately as the man led into the wrong by his brother Cassius. Played by Peter Donat, Cassius persuades Brutus that Caesar is a tyrant, and bad for Rome, so that Brutus will help in his plot to murder Caesar, really a concealed plot aimed at bettering his own position. I found Donat's Cassius ex- tremely realistic, for I actually found myself hating him as the play progressed. These were the main members of the cast, but others, such as sev- eral of the common people, slaves. and a soothsayer, added humour, drama, and character to the play. The battle and mob scenes, I thought, were particularly well carried out, in that they so vividly transferred the feeling of chaos and confusion. After the performance which I attended, Bruno Gerussi reappeared on the stage to answer questions put to him by the student audience. Someone asked him what the actors themselves thought of teenage audiences. As a great surprise to me, he replied that in fact they pre- fer them to adult audiences, because young people seem to come to the plays with an open mind, whereas adults usually have set opinions of what the play should be like. I had been to Stratford before but I had never known anything about the theatre such as Gerussi told us, so to me this was a high point of the afternoon. I enjoyed the play itself as much as any of my pre- Vious Visits to Stratford, because the production was competently, if not superbly acted, and though it was not intensely dramatic, was at least full of action. -J. F. Dreyer, IIIA 68 TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD PESSIMISM AND OPTIMISM VS. REALISM Do teenagers of today have reason to be pessimistic? I say no! Then do teenagers of today have reason to be optimistic? Again, I say no! lloes this appear to be a contradiction? Perhaps, but it should not, for the teenagers of today not only have reason, but also the respon- silmility to be realistic. Our modern world has produced a lazy teenager. The road to pes- simism is most frequently chosen, because it is an easy, down-hill slide. free from effort and responsibility. He feels it is easier to sing songs and write rhymes than to fix faults. This can be seen in the current trend of folk music. Compare the Dylanistic "Eve of Destruction", one singer's song, to "We Shall Overcome", a movement's song. The "pen is mightier than the sword", yes, but it is "deeds, not Words" that will determine the path of tomorrow. We also have quite a few optimists among our ranks, but I'm afraid they don't last too terribly long. As well as producing a lazy teenager, today's world produces a secure teenager. That is, a teenager who feels more or less secure, until that dark day when he may no longer ride in the parental pouch, but must climb the steps for himself. This can be seen occurring in the upper three-quarters of society most often. The teenager leads an optimistic life, protected by his parents, until he is kicked from the nest and thrown into the lap of pessimism. Perhaps the only difference between the optimist and the pessimist is time. That, briefly, is the teenage situation as it stands today, that is, except for this third group we refer to as the realists. To be realistic is to see the problem as it is, and to attack it rationally, with an opti- mistic slant. It would be silly to attack a problem, and not to hope for any solution. Therefore, it is impossible to be a realist without opti- mistic leanings. The realists of today are a group of people who have found, usually the hard way, that what they want, they have to sacrifice and work for. It is not surprising that it is this group of people who are becoming our leaders, for they are the only people who have the ability to form sensible policies and make national decisions. It should be noted especially by us at Trinity College School that the majority of today's realists are not among us. The problems of everyday life in our wallet-world are too easily solved by the cheque- book and not by a rational mind. As a word of warning, I draw a parallel between the Twentieth Century and the Roman civilization. It's very easy to say we should all be realistic, but the main ques- tion asks whether there is any reason to be a realist. I feel there are many more reasons to be a realist than anything else. The pessimists raise the question of the bomb . . . "There is no hope." they claim. "The mere push of a button, and the whole world is destroyed." This is true to a certain extent, and the realist recognizes this, but he also recognizes that there is a possible solution to this. Through proper alliances and treaties, is not the idea of disarmament conceivable ? Another question raised continually by the pessimist is the matter of the population explosion. This is indeed a problem, but if it is ra- tionally dealt with, it ceases to be uncorrectable. For example, rehabili- tation of land makes possible many things in the field of agriculture and housing. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 69 There is also the optimist who must be considered. The realist must not adopt the idea that problems solve themselves. The realist must be ready to solve these himself, and not become just a conformist of the automated world. I could go on with these examples indefinitely, but they can all be coped with. The situation today is like that of a text book, with prob- lems in the front and the answers in the back. There is just one catch though, you see: the answers can't be intelligently used until the prob- lems have been worked out. The only people today working out the problems are the realists. The optimists and the pessimists may have excuses to be what they are but certainly no reasons. -D. P. B. Hill, VIB FREEDOM'S HOMETOWN Washington, D.C. has had many famous titles, it has been called "the most beautiful city in the world", and "Freedom's Hometown". It professes its beauty to the public yearly. In the spring, the cherry blos- soms surrounding the Capital draw millions from all over America, and from foreign countries as well. Yet behind its beauty, Washington has a very bad slum problem. The city itself has a population of over 800,000 and nearly 65 per cent of this is Negro. Two blocks north of the Capitol, stand Negro tenementsg and five blocks from the White House lies the Capitol City's own "Harlem". Here Negroes live mainly on relief, and families of seven or eight are desperately overcrowded. Washington, just as any big city in the U.S., is bound to have racial tensions during the years of the "Negro Revolt". The purpose of this essay however is to show in only a small glimpse why Home Rule for this city is necessary, in order to avoid, in the District of Columbia, ll crisis similar to the one in Los Angeles in the summer of 1965. The Capitol city does not have a mayor. Congress has served as a self-appointed government for 91 years. Thus Washington is the only capital in the world west of the Berlin Wall that does not have its own city elections. It is not that the citizens do not wish to vote, for in 1964 when the first election in which they were allowed to vote was held, 94 per cent of the population cast a ballot, while the national average is only 68 per cent. Congress has shown itself to be incapable of meeting with the de- mands of city government. Time and again they have voted millions of dollars for public buildings and transportation, yet Washington schools are the worst city schools in the nation, with standards far below the national requirements. Nearly all of the city's public schools were built before 1930. Congress has torn down some of the slums, but in their place they have put up new and expensive high rise apartment buildings. This obviously forces Negroes to funnel into the already overcrowded slums to the northwest where all they can do is join the thousands of others already on the Federal Relief waiting list. Crime in the Capital rises more every year, yet Congress destroys public parks and recreation areas with new buildings and modern high- 70 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ways. llonie Rule in the District is needed to provide the more respon- sible and thoughtful leadership, so vitally necessary to this city. Let- ting its citizens vote for its own own leaders seems natural under the Constitution, yet Congress has denied this right for over 90 years. Home Rule is desperately needed, and now, before it is too late. -S. V. Frisbee, VB1 VIVENT LES CANADIENS FRANCAIS! I am not a Separatist, nor am I French, but I feel that the people of the French language in Canada have a very important role to play in Canadian affairs and should be given the chance. When the word "French-Canadian" is mentioned today in Canada, a subconscious connection is made in the minds of 90 percent of the people to the word "bomb", This is startling but true. Other people in the smaller ten per cent, think of names such as Duplessis, Caouette, Favreau. and Rivard, Frenchmen unpopular for one reason or another. Such references as these are obviously bound to spread to otherwise in- nocent peopleg and alarmingly quickly the whole of the French race are tagged as "terrorists". Upon actual interview of the economic and financial leaders of the French, it has been found that the real terrorists form an incredibly small minority of the actual mass of the people, who only want to live peacefully with their neighbours. We can not con- demn a nation because of certain bad elements. We must recognize that we have similar, although not so highly publicized faults ourselves. The French have quite recently begun a tremendous industrial and financial expansion, to the extent that Quebec is now the most progres- sive and dynamic of all Canada's provinces. Many men, whose fathers worked for English-speaking tycoons, now are the tycoons in command of their own businesses, and are multi-millionaires. They were not al- lowed to work in English-speaking firms, because they could not speak the language. and so they resorted to establishing their own firms. Now they are making a great contribution to Canada's economy, to such an extent that some of the more ignorant French began to think they were so well off that they could run their own country, and be entirely self-sufficient. Their actions were watched with indignation around the world, and even the more wealthv and well-to-do French de- plored their actions and publiclv denounced them. French police hunted and caught the terrorists, and French courts tried them under bi-cultural law, and sentenced them, as would any other government have done in the same circumstances. However, the fact that they were Frenchmen sparked the old English hatred of the French, whom many remembered as having fought conscription in the two Wars. The old arguments over the English conquest of the French, an event of nearly two centuries ago, were revived. and fired at the unfortunate offenders. The whole result of this was a degradation of the French name. In fact. this whole prob- lem is due to a small minority, who do not even have the same ideas as the niaioi-ity. The majority of the French do not want to separate, nor are they inteiested in laying bombs and scaring the English out of the province. The French also exert a special and unique type of influence on Canada and her neighbours. Because of their very nature, the French provide a tremendous tourist industry, in that as one of the places in Canada which the homogenizing American influence has not penetrated, TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 71 they now have people living exactly as they have done for hundreds of years. They are living examples of one hundred years ago or more. I spoke of the homogenizing effect of the American way of life. This is another thing which the French, I believe, can be very useful in com- batting. I am not prejudiced against the Americans, only prejudiced in favour of the individuality of Canada. I feel that the American way of life, in which everyone conforms, and everything is for "Home and Mother" is not as good as the one which exists now in Canada, where we do not explain our actions by saying they are good for the country. So long as the French continue to be different from the rest of Canada, there will not be homogenization, and the American influence will not prevail, because the scout of Americanism, the tourists, will not come near. Canada, by having this apparently hostile party in her midst, will never become another Hawaii, overrun by the American influence, which removes a sense of individualism in a country, to say the least. We cannot ignore the tremendous harm the French problem has made for Canadian tourism, and the subsequent loss in that area. How- ever, as I emphasized above, the terrorists a1'e in a minority, and have now been thwarted twice. I feel that if only these terrorists can be discouraged for good, the French can make a very large contribution to Canada, as they have already begun to, in their formation of new and successful industries. They represent such a large proportion of the population that they could support a very substantial part of Canada. All this is possible if they are given a chance. -J. E. Matheson, VA CHESTERTON AND LEWIS: A COMPARISON OF VALUES There is a strong basis for comparison between Messrs. G. K. Ches- terton and C. S. Lewis: both are writers possessed of a talent for ex- pressing themselves, and both are philosophers holding strong religious convictions. Both, in their essays f"The Logic of Elfland" - Chester- ton, and "The Right and Wrong as a Clue to the Meaning of the Uni- verse" - Lewisj, try to deal logically with the question of man's place in the universe. And there is indeed a great deal to be said for the thoughts expressed in their essays, thoughts which have been voiced many times before but which need constant updating. One cannot miss the point they are trying to make, yet some of their ideas disguise a jarring view of humanity. The reader must be careful not to accept implicitly the theses and arguments. Chesterton deals with a LOSS of meaning of life, he claims that the modern world, in adopting a rational, logical, scientific point of view, has destroyed the expression of art and spirit. He emphasizes his point by reversing completely the logical groundwork upon which science operates and substituting his own irrational type of logic. He calls it the logic of elflandg its "laws" are the laws of mental relations, all else is magic, he claims. A rather weak argument when studied closely, but it serves to make the reader question the glories of the scientific method. Chesterton's major positive point seems to be that the spiritual and romantic add a great deal of meaning to life. Unfortunately, he appears so exhausted in building up his own logic against that of science, that he will not elaborate on his major premise. Lewis, on the other hand, is concerned with what gives life mean- ing. He states what Chesterton only implies: that there is "something" 72 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD above and beyond the mere fact of existence, something universal and purposeful. Refusing to restrict this premise to conventional terms, he calls it simply the Law of Human Nature. He establishes further that man knows this Law but does not uphold it. The untrue basis for his argument rests upon these ideas, that there is a Law telling men what they ought to do, that men know this Law but do not obey. The bulk ol' the essay is taken up in proving this by simple analogies, and his power of logic compels even the dubious reader to agree with him. lt seems then, that these two writers speak of something that all people feel with varying degrees of conviction. They effectively absolve themselves from responsibility for their thoughts. And yet they slip up in their arguments for the strength of their convictions - several ideas necessary to the main lines of thought are presented in the essays which this reader, at any rate, cannot accept. For example, in arguing an absolute standard of right and wrong, Lewis implies that certain actions are ALWAYS right for ALL people. He justifies this by claiming that the right actions are those that best benefit mankind as a whole. Further, he claims, as an illustration, that the Germans realized, in fighting two world wars with most of the rest of the world, that they were violating the absolute standard of Right. Now I ask Mr. Lewis, what if the Germans had managed to sway the opinion of the majority of mankind in their favour? And what if they had believed and made others believe that THEY, in fact, were right, and not we - that they were benefiting mankind more than we? Then, it seems, we would know we were right, but everyone would say We were wrong. Who, in this case, would be right? It appears obvious that we cannot say who would be right, we can only say what we THINK is right. Moreover, we can assume that most people share our opinion, because they have found this to be the best way to live. Perhaps we can even venture the idea that the "Something" which we all too readily translate into something concrete and palatable, is that to which men look as a goal: perfection, for lack of a better word. Assuming the majority of people DO seek perfection teven though they know they fall far shortl, then their lives have meaning because they seek to better themselves, and what THEY find to be the best way of approaching perfection is THEIR standard of morality. But there is too great a range of opinion - indeed, too great a difference in ways of life - to justify taking matters into one's hands and passing judgement on others as to what is Right and Wrong. Although he carefully avoids implicating himself with Christian doctrine, Lewis betrays himself as a traditional, orthodox Christian through this laying down of the law. He must be admired for his con- viction, but regarded with a measure of wariness for his dogmatic ap- proach to the subject. Chesterton is less obvious, he prefers to hide his opinions behind a mass of dazzling logic, and let the reader decipher his philosophy. One sentence, however, near the end of his essay, strikes the reader as being considerably overstated: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God: but thou shalt not know thyself." This is an extension of his argument against the scientific mentality, but surely the love of a supernatural entity is irrational and in the same logical vein as the question ol the meaning of life. If I "love the Lord my God", then I have greater insight into my own place in the universe, and I know my- self better. fliesterton implies that man actually could know himselfg TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 73 this seems to imply perfection, and he no doubt would be one of the last to acknowledge man's perfectability. Chesterton, like Lewis, generalizes too much and passes judgement on mankind as a whole. If each would realize the presence and power of opinion, perhaps he would be slower to speak dogmatically on a sub- jective matter. Expressing opinion on such a subject is difficult, for one can easily assume too much and arouse the objections of one's cri- tics. Chesterton and Lewis take a logical stand on their religious con- victions, when they trespass the bounds of logic they fall prey to more rational and less religious interests. Perhaps they should restrict them- selves to expressing more acceptable viewpoints, for few people in the modern world of thought appreciate being thrown into a preconceived stereotyped mould arbitrarily stuck with the name man. -P. G. B. Grant, VIA 9' 74 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD MW7 CRUELTY IN PROPORTION The tires squealed protestingly as the black Citroen came to a stop against the curb. The doors swung open and six men spewed out into the street, each of them wearing the uniform of the feared Gestapo. Four of the men walked purposefully up to the door of the neat brick house. The door opened hesitantly in answer to their banging, and slammed shut behind them. Up to this point the boy sitting by the steps had given the scene only a cursory glance. The child continued to watch a black ant, as it struggled to move a crumb of bread. Only when a shiny black boot blocked his line of vision did he turn his attention away. "You, boy, is this your house?" asked a hard voice. The child in- stinctively shrank back against the steps. He made no answer, onlv shook his head. "That is good for you," said the Nazi as he turned 2lXV2lY. The small boy watched the stiff retreating back for a few seconds, then turned his eyes back to the door of the house which was opening. ln front of them the Police herded an old man and woman. Blood trickled from a small cut above the man's eye. He stumbled along as best he could. using his cane to steady himself against the prods of the Germans. The woman walked as if in a trance, her eyes blank, and the knuckles of her clenched fists white. The child was drawn forward out of curiosity. What were these men doing to the old people who supplied the neighbourhood children with sweets? That nice Jewish couple, as Maman called them. Suddenly the woman swung around on the Herman behind her, and clawed at his face. leaving long red marks from the temple down. The man felt his face, then took a pace towards the woman, struggling in the arms of his comrade, and hit her hard on the side ol' the head with his closed fist. h A look ot' horror came into the child's eyes, and he drew back be- hind the safety of a convenient lamp post. He watched the limp figure ol thi- woman being bundled into the car after the old man. When they had disappeared the boy detached himself from the lamp post and stood watching the corner around which the car had gone. He did not nndi-rsiancl how people could be so cruel to a poor little old man and woman. New-r had he seen a man hit a woman like that before. lle must have killf-d her. He shook his head and walked over to the TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 75 steps again and sat down. He picked up the stick with which he had been playing before and searched the pavement for his ant. At last he found it, still struggling vainly with his piece of bread. The child watched it for perhaps five seconds, then very carefully and with great concentration cut the hapless creature neatly in half with his stick. -W. H. Elcock, VA LAST HURDLE It had been a long road to reach the top and he was not going to see his ambitions shattered just as he reached the Olympics. He was a runner, more specifically a hurdler, and he had practiced for long months on end to enter the Olympics' hurdle event. As he entered the famed arena he felt for the first time alone as he looked down the long line of hurdles. He had practiced that run many times before and he felt he knew every grain of sand and earth on that track. He knew also that this run need not be any different from his other attempts during practice hours, but even so, with his goal so near, he could not help feeling some uncertainty of his power. He took his shoes out of their case and contemplated them for a moment. These shoes might just be the small factor which would de- cide the result of his upcoming race. He examined them closely, gin- gerly feeling the protruding spikes. Satisfied he put them on and laced them up. So far so good. Now, if he lost, he had only himself to blame. Once more he looked at the line of hurdles and went over the timing in his mind. Slowly he made his way to the starting line and looking around him saw the starter lining up his race. From the grand stand came shouts of encouragement from his supporters. He got down on the line. Crack! He was off. The first hurdle loomed up ahead of him. He judged his jump perfectly and landed without breaking stride. The next hurdle was on him and he made it in perfect style. Now he felt confident. He knew he was well ahead of the other runners and still increasing his lead. Up loomed the fifth, sixth, seventh, and he continued unchecked. He jumped the eighth and ninth also to perfection, but as he sped up the last stretch to the tenth and last hurdle he felt his legs weakening. He reached the last hurdle only by grim determination and jumped - he was off the ground, one leg over. He brought his other foot over, but he did not have quite enough impetus to take him over, and his foot just touched the bar, and he fell off balance on the other side. He did not actually fall, but he lost the lead he had built up as he staggered over the finish line. His friends gathered around him, and some said: "Too bad." Others said: "Better luck next time." He himself knew that he had failed. But he also had gained the experience and the insight which can only come from running an Olym- pic race. He felt a surge of confidence for his try at the next Olympic games. -J. C. S. Wootton, IIIA 76 TRINITY OOLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE ART OF BULLFIGHTING Rullfighting, which is a very popular sport in countries such as Spain and Mexico, is based upon three things: the audience, the bull and the bullfighter. Each one of these factors, or bases, plays a very important part in the popularity, spirit, and vitality of the sport. I say bullfighting is a sport because it has an objective, just like any Other sport, and it also has a popular demand, just like a pop group or a deodorant spray. At this point the reader is probably asking himself: "If bullfight- ing is a sport just like basketball or baseball, why doesn't it exist in countries such as the United States or Canada?" The answer to this question is simply that there isn't a popular demand for such a sport in North America. Americans and Canadians think that bullfighting is bloody, pointless, cruel and obscene. This I must say is about the farthest thing from the truth, because there is an art to bullfighting which the average American has failed to see. Bullfighting, unlike most sports, has a lot of history behind it. As I pointed out before, the Spanish introduced the sport to Mexico, and the Spanish also changed the Mexicans' outlook on bullfighting, and convinced them that bullfighting tests a man's courage, valour, and stamina. Before long. bullfighting evolved from a new thing to an every day thing, and finally into a tradition. This is truly an art! The art of bullfighting also lies in the bullfighting itself. One walks into the arena and hears the sound of horns bursting into the air. One feels as if he's walking into an ancient Roman arena to see the slaugh- tering of a beast - a takeback in time. One doesn't have this sensation when he goes to see a hockey game. Once inside and seated, a very spectacular parade struts into the ring. The beautiful horses are a sight to see, and the costumes which are colourful. skin tight with ruffles all around. become a memory till your dying dav. The most beautiful thing of all is the bull: so brave, masculine, fast and powerful as he dashes and charges around the ring, kicking dirt into the air and throwing his horns, or better said. weapons, in all directions. desperately looking for a target. Then the horses gallop out. and the bull charges at their sides, but is driven away by the lances of the rider. After the horses leave. a man with foot-long spears prances around, and dodges the bull as it flies by, piercing with colour- ful lances the tough hide of the bull's back. Last, and best of all. the fight between the bull and the bullfighter, at this point, the crowds go Evild with excitement, just as an audience would before a 'Beatle per- ormance'. The crowds shout an 'ole' with everv charge of the bull at the bright red cape which is flung into the air. The tension adds up, as the bull- fighter draws closer to the bull. At this point, the crowds are standing up, shouting, clapping, crying, or sitting on the edge of their seats, try- ing to believe what's going on before their eyes. As you can see, the Mexican people live for this kind of entertain- ment. Of course it tal-'es a lot of talent and courage on the part of the bullfighter. if he can fight the bull with finesse, and send the crowds wild at the same time - which is an art. Also, I have described earlier in mv essay. the beauty of the ring, the power ot the bull, the courage of the bullfighter and the splendour TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 77 of the bullfight, which, together with its historical background, and absolute uniqueness, adds up to something which is incomparable. It adds up to an art - the art of bullfighting. -A. P. Kaminis, IVB1 IMMORTALITY It had to happen eventually. An unanswered message was hurled from Moscow. The minutes passed slowly, one by one, an interminable line of dominoes, falling in succession. Gradually the world came to a standstill. A slightly green, but nearly invisible gas had descended from the troposphere, a silent and lethal marauder. Out in the country, livestock were halted in their tracks. They gasped, retched, and collapsed dead. The seas turned to acids as they dissolved the deadly gas. Countless millions of fish floated belly-up- wards to the bubbling and hissing surface. Every last thing, including the microscopic algae, was annihilated in the oceans and in the air. All living matter on land died. The streets of towns and cities were a red sea of blood, sinew. and bone. The human agony started with the inhalation of the fumes. At first contact, the body and skin started to putrify. Lungs collapsed, and hearts stopped dead with one last convulsion, as the gas entered the bloodstream. Within a matter of minutes, the whole body was a sizz- ling mass of flesh. Death came in seconds. It was a quick and silent death. Man's lack of knowledge had killed him. He had mixed two rela- tively harmless gases: a sleep inducing vapour, and a virus gas. The result was a killer more deadly than Man could ever conceive of. The time was late afternoon, near the end of the 197O's. For the first time in the twentieth century, the air blew clean over New York City. Nothing moved. Thunder-clouds gathered silently near the scene of death. The majestic sky-Scrapers, dwarfed by the President Coldwater Me- morial Centre, peered down unscathed on the lifeless scene below, and laughed inwardly at the futility of Man's world. It began to rain, a soft cleansing drizzle. In the deserted streets it fell quietly as if to administer the last rites to a dead civilization. It collected in overflowing pools, and ran down towards the still-function- ing drainpipes. It gurgled sadistically. A gentle breeze sprang up from inland, hissing softly through the narrow corridors between buildings, and out over the harbour to a silent ocean. Deep down in the depths of the Atlantic, a single cell multiplied, and multiplied again, a familiar cycle began for a second time. -J. P. Molson, VA A MISSING STATUE The duties of a shoe-shiner in Madison Square are, indeed. very limited. They consist merely of attracting a reasonable number of cus- tomers and of providing a respectable shine for their footwear. Herbert, however, took it upon himself to do more than this. Consequently, he was probably the most lovable shoe-shiner in all of New York City. Madison Square is one of the many plazas of its type in the city, 78 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD but has the distinct advantage of not having attained the prestige of its more prominent relatives, such as Washington Square and Times Square. It includes a number of statues, five or six to be specific, and more than enough park benches for the needs of their infrequent users. Probably the only point of interest in the square is the statue paradox. A new- comer wondering how the square had come by its name might search for a coinineniorative figure of the President bearing that name. How- ever, any search would be in vain, for there is no such statue. lt was this place to which Herbert came to work nearly every day ot' the year. He was an innocuous person, but did not lack an energetic, virile appearance because of it. Physically, he was always dressed in a shiny coat and pants, with a flannel shirt, characteristic of his class. Ilis face was never shaven closely and always appeared to have a day's growth of beard. Nevertheless, none of these tangible views of Herbert coincided with his unique character. From the instant you heard him say a word. or looked into those placid, perceptive eyes, you inevitably had the feeling that in your presence was not a shoe-shiner. but a man of respectability and distinction. He had no trace of the tell-tale accent of the illiterate, and his phrases were gramatically pure. You had the distinct feeling that had he been dressed in a fine suit and shaven pro- perly, he would surely assume the position of an author or even of roy- alty. The most presumptuous of customers felt somewhat abashed at having such a man kneeling before him shining his shoes. I first met Herbert when by transfer I began work at a nearby bank. My first impression of him was much the same as everyone else's, and after a few visits we became good friends. Twice a week I would have mv shoes shined on the way home. These were good times and I looked forward to them as a pleasant relaxation after work. It was not long before I learned that I was not the only regular frequenter of his stand. Often while telling me an item of news. he would insert, "Bob said that . . ." or "Mr. Coleman thought . . ." I never actually met these people, but felt as if they were close friends. Frequently I would also find myself quoting them. I never pretended to be Herbert's favorite customer, because I realized that he enjoyed all of us, and we him. Madison Square was literally his home, and he spent more tigie there than he did at his dilapidated apartment on the lower west si e. Herbert used to talk of the different people whom he received as customers, not his regulars, like myself, but ones just passing through, for the square was so situated as to have a fair share of New York City walking through it. There were the rather arrogant ones who took great pleasure in saving boldly "Boy, there - . . " or "Good job. boy" in their customary haughty tones. There were others, too, who bothered him, like the drunken sot who was incessantly begging for monev to buy more wine. Nevertheless, none came as frequently as we regulars, and Herbert rested in that consolation. It was, therefore, unfortunate that the good life of this man should be troubled in anv way. Yet it was. One night when the sky was par- ticularly clear. I had stayed late in my office to finish an annual report. But I found the sky so beautiful, so serene, that it entirelv captivated mvthoughts. I stared endlessly out of the seventh floor office window until it was after eight o'clock. Then hunger ended my peaceful oblivion and I was forced to go get something to eat. I had accomplished very little, but resigned myself to complete the work after eating. So that 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHGOL RECORD 79 I could see more of the gentle, almost soothing sky, I decided to walk through Madison Square where the tall office buildings would be less of an obstacle to my view. I arrived there and found the haven quietly empty. Then, no sooner had I got off my feet on one of those inviting benches, when I heard a commotion. Instinctively I turned my head, to see three people in a brawl. I leaped up and began to run towards the disorder. A specific hazard of Madison Square is the diagonal walks, making a direct route virtually impossible. This, however, did not enter my head in the ferment, and before I had taken three strides, I was face down on the hard walk. Within a week I was released from the hospital, having had a very slight concussion. I later was told that the police had arrived and broken up the brawl. Two of the victims were teenagers maddened with liquor and the third was an old shoe-shiner whom the former had beaten very cruelly. Apparently he was in critical condition. The next time I went to have my shoes shined, I found no one there and the whole square had a peculiar muteness, uncommon for that par- ticular time of day. I continued to go there for possibly three weeks knowing very well that it was in vain. At length my shoes became so unbearably dirty that I was compelled to resort to another shoe-shiner. This, however, did not put an end to my periodic visits to the square. Never again did I see Herbert, and I noticed that the place had a languid air of bereavement as if it too were vainly searching for something - maybe its heart. Madison Square had lost its king, and possibly some day there will be erected another statue to solve the paradox. Not to President Madi- son, but to the lowly shoe-shiner - Herbert. -N. Cabell, VA THERE ARE ALWAYS DREAMS It was a cold misty morning, and as I began to gain consciousness, I noticed my breath forming vapours above my head. The sky was bleak, grey and foreboding, and the small black clouds were scudding away across the lake. I began to contemplate the subject of crispy but- tered toast, when with a sudden jolt fthe fifteenerl I awoke to reality, and my stomach began to grumble at such a prospect of inedibility. I soon lapsed back into the pleasant world of make-believe, as I conjured up visions of fresh tropical juices, crispy cereals, and real na- tural coffee. As I lay basking in the glory of succulent provender, I was given yet another rude jolt fthe fiverl. I sat up in bed, rubbed my eyes and yelled loudly at my roommateg but the exertion of a sudden awakening had been too much, and I succumbed to the solitude of total somniferous bliss. -R. R.

We break our fast and load our packsg Then lift them up upon our backs And walk. We load canoes, and then we make Our way across the still calm lake With ripples spreading in our wake Behind. And now we paddle down a stream And listen to the wildfowl scream Nearby. The stream twists on with bend on bend And peacefully along we wend Our way. And now a portage: with canoe And pack on back we struggle through The undergrowth, and carry to More water. Comes afternoon, the sun is hot, The flies are fierceg one can do naught But suffer. At last it's dark, and for the night We stop and try to find a site To make our camp, all by the light Of campfires.

Not just plain street or roaclsicli- nnnl, but heaving, deep, black mud. He sits in his trench hollowlv iw-t'li-vtiiig. There is no end in sight. Hunger pangs grip his stomach. Yestf-i-clay he found a cow, started to cut it up, and to his horror he disc-owrecl it was solidly full of enormous rats. The thick flung-like snlistaiwe is everywhere. So are the rats. So is the hunger. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 81 Everybody is dying, his friends, his officers, his sergeants, all dying. Bernard sinks another ten inches into the ground, and struggles with his rifle for a moment, but gives up, discouraged and disheartened. Bernard is dying. Flowers are tossed to the sky by one happy onlooker. They scatter in the air and some of them fall into the river and are carried off for- ever. The girl whom everyone was watching is now dancing with Ber- nard. As he moves he watches her dark brown, attractive eyes. His feet are like feathers and his happiness is forever. The music quickens, almost as if it had to beat some strange deadline. Happiness was executed by war. It was rapidly replaced with hell. There was no life any more. Just mud. And rats. And insects. Sadly he tried to make himself think of bright happy days, but he did not succeed. Yet another foot he sank into the mud. Bernard wept. The music stopped. People were starting to go home. A cold chill- ing wind started to blow. The flowers floated down the river. -E. A. Bull, IIIA A JOB WITH A DIFFERENCE My job last summer was not a great money-making enterprise, but rather a lesson in understanding the people of another country. I was working with a construction company rebuilding a sewage plant just south of Birmingham, England. My cousin, a student at Ridley, and I flew to London at the begins ning of the holidays, and from there we took a train to Leamington Spa. Leamington is a picturesque little town in the heart of Warwickshire, or "Shakespeare Country." We stayed at a youth hostel there for three days, and from there we moved to Birmingham in order to be nearer our job. In Birmingham, we lived at a boarding house where we cooked our own food and washed our own laundry. We got up every morning at a quarter to seven, made tea and toast, and then boarded the company van which took us out to the site. We worked from eight o'clock until ten when we had a fifteen minute break for "breakfast". This consisted of several cups of tea and a sandwich. After breakfast, we worked un- til one o'clock when we stopped for lunch. Often during the lunch break we would play cricket or cards. We then worked from one-thirty until six. often stopping for a brief tea break if the foreman was not about. We then went home in the van, cooked a dinner generally con- sisting of beans and toast, and went to bed. It was a long working' day, but we seldom noticed the passage of time. The work was strenuous, but interesting, and we often did dif- ferent jobs. For example, the first four weeks we worked as carpen- ters, and then as we became adjusted to the work we were given other jobs. I worked on a cement mixer for a week, and I also operated a pneumatic drill for a few davs. During the last week at the site. we were allowed to drive the "dumpers", which were small four-wheel-drive dump-trucks. To this point I have merely described our working dav. I could write for hours on countless incidents, but I shall merely describe the 82 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD most interesting and fascinating feature of our job, our work-mates. One of the things that concerned us about this job was the reaction ot' the men towards us. Would they ignore us? Would they resent us? Fortunately, our fears were unwarranted. From the very first day, they were always friendly and kind and generous. When one of the men found that we were cooking our own food, he gave us several cook- ing utensils as well as some tea and sugar. This was typical of the thoughtfulness of our fellow labourers. Most of the men that we worked with were Irishmen, or "Paddies" as they were nicknamed. They were always full of fun and laughter, but ready to fight to the finish with anyone who insulted Ireland. We knew that we could depend on any one of them if we ever ran into trouble. Perhaps I am unqualified to say the following, but I feel that I can- not write about England without discussing at least briefly the working habits of our companions. In general, I found that most of the men were basically lazy. They felt that there was no point in working if they could relax without the foreman seeing. They never do today what they can put off until to- morrow. Unlike the British workman of years gone by who was famous for the pride he took in his work, the present day worker is not particularly concerned about the outcome of his labours. Perhaps this is linked with the economic and political decline that is being witnessed in Great Bri- tain to-day. To conclude, I feel that to perhaps fifty or sixty men, we were am- bassadors of Canada. They were not only interested in us as individuals, but also in our country. They wanted to know how easilv they could get a job in Canada, what their living conditions would be like, and more important, how easily they could get a wife. Who knows, perhaps due to us, some of the people we met may come to live here in Canada. If they do, I can only hope that Canada will be as good to them as England was to us. -G. R. Strathy, VA THE HERMIT Not long ago in the high mountains of the west there lived a hermit. He was a tall, dark man and lived a leisurely life among books and na- ture. Ile studied literature of many kinds, and was indeed a very in- telligent and learned person. Ile lived in secluded happiness. His world was one of colour and nature. During the long summer days he would fish in the nearby lakes or rivers. Sometimes he would ride his horse through the un- touched land, the silence broken only by the horse's hooves. And in the evening he would sit by the fire and read, with a small dog curled up near him by the hearth. Hut in time the summer sun grew weak, and the trees changed colour. The wind that was once warm and soft became cold and harsh. Soon his land was covered in a layer of snow and ice. Less frequently did he venture out. One evening, as the wind howled about his home, and from the small barn the horse complained of the cold, he heard a whistling sound, TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 83 followed by a large explosion. He thought nothing of it, however, be- cause jet aeroplanes had flown over three times before that year, and made similar sounds. Again the horse made noises of complaint. The dog growled and retreated farther toward the fire. Finally, the hermit got out of his comfortable chair and put on his heavy clothes. He trudged over to- ward the barn, pulling the hood down over his ears. He entered the barn and flashed the electric torch on the horse. Then he put more blankets on it and piled up some hay. The horse seemed contented. The hermit seemed to sense something wrong in the air, but could not quite grasp it. As he left the barn he caught a glimpse of a light in the corner of his eye. Yes! It was a light. He started up the mountainside toward it. He was closer now. It was white and intense. He stopped abruptly, ahead lay a large sphere on the ridge, just before a thick clump of ever- greens: an open port, a figure on the floor inside, the floor on a forty- five degree slant to the ground. The figure wore a garment covering his entire body, excluding hands and feet. The hermit quickly picked this strange man up and carried him towards the cabin. Slowly, the man revived. Somehow, the hermit sensed the words "thank you" in his mind. For the man's spoken language was alien to him, since the hermit spoke only earthly speech. During the cold dark months of winter that followed, the men talked and read. They found much in common: they both had much to talk about, and were quite similar in many ways. Thus they became good friends. The man, it seemed, was from another world, and he also was a hermit, but his country was the universe, his home a sphere. His sphere, he said, could soon fly again, he had only crashed because of a magnetic disturbance. The trees turned green, the rivers again flowed, and the birds sounded their calls. A horse walked through a green pasture and a small dog barked at the heavens. -F. E. Foster, IIIA MY WORLD MARK ONE Pink pool of gravy on the table - Place smells like a stable And the writing on the walls Of the rest rooms Murders mankind's morals. They sink to the dirty floor, Claw the battered door In frictionless frenzy. But why worry? Put your ponderings back in their paranoid pigeonholes. I'm insincerely sorry if these ravings Like mental moles Worry at half-spoken ideals, But they must. 84 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 'Man's fate is his present hell.

Heybroek, VIB THE BROKEN RULE The three swarthy and muddy fighters knelt around the freshly dug grave. A few words were muttered, then the brand new coffin was lowered into its bed. The slow rhythmic scraping of the shovels echoed throughout the graveyard. It was doneg all was silent. Three boys filed past the grave of their father, the smallest of them sob- bing. Slowly they walked back to their small hut in the hamlet. The hut was a gift of the people of the hamlet. The people had loved their leader, but none would face death to go to his burying. He had defied the mighty Viet Cong, and look where it got him and his wife. The Viet Cong surprised his wife while she was washing: a bullet in the head. Then they got him. His death was slow. They kicked, hit, knifed and butted him till he lay dead, a twisted mass of bloody flesh. The V.C. dragged him to each of the people of the hamlet to show them this would happen to them if they supported the government. The eldest of the boys decided that the three of them should leave in the morning for another hamlet, or even a big city, to avoid the fury of the Viet Cong. The youngest wished his mother and father were still alive. The eldest wished he could join the army and kill all the V.C. The middle of the two wished he didn't have to look after his little brother and could go out and play with the other boys. A twig snapped and a little thump was heard before the little hut was suddenly shattered out of existence. With it went three wishes that could never come true. -I. F.

The ability to come from behind and win has often been cited as an indicator of the worth of a team. This ability was displayed in two games, where Bigside was substantially behind, and in the end came back to win the game. With these qualities, Bigside was able to accumulate a four-game winning streak - something not accomplished in recent years. Our L.B.F. games, however, were disastrous as usual. When in a league of four schools, a team does not win more than one game in seven years, there must be something wrong. I cite this ar? an L.B.F.-phobia. This year we certainly had the potential to win a few, if not all, of our league games. It must be kept in mind though, that the team played a terrific game against U.C.C. and it was anybody's game right to the end. However, the fact still remains that we lost all our league games. In any case, I want to emphasize that the players were very keen and usually hard-hitting. Until Bigside shrugs off this L.B.F. complex, the team will not be successful. I would like to thank the coaches for their great enthusiasm and also Bob Rudolf who was put out at the beginning of the season, but who helped the team greatly. -VVill Hafner 86 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Bigside Summary liigside Appleby At Appleby Lost 39-13 liigsinle Ultl Boys All T.C.S.

BIGSIDE vs. APPLEBY At Oakvillle September 22 Lost 39-13 T.C.S. got off to a shaky start in their first game of the season, and never seemed to be able to come out of it fully. We seemed to have a lot of trouble against Appleby's fast offence, and while our own offence moved very well at times, we certainly didn't get many breaks. Three of Appleby's T.D.s were set up by Trinity mistakes. Appleby opened the scoring near the end of the first quarter with an unconverted touchdown. They scored again, halfway through the second quarter, after a long drive down the field. T.C.S. came to life after this and, led by Binch's strong rushing, we appeared to be headed for a T.D. However, a T.C.S. fumble was recovered by Appleby, who promptly marched up the field for their third major. They passed to make the convert good. Then late in the quarter, Binch made two long runs of 15 and 40 yards to put the ball on the Appleby 6. Titte- more plowed through the line for the T.D., converted by Stobie. The T.C.S. defense held Appleby well in the third quarter, and an interception by Tom Zimmerman set up our march for a second T.D. Strong: running by Binch and Tittemore put the ball deep in Appleby territory, and a twenty-yard pass from Binch to Hafner gave us the T.D. Hut our elation was short-lived, for Appleby bounced right back and scored 21 touchdown a few minutes later. Apple-by scored twice in the fourth quarter - once after they had recovered the ball on the T.C.S. 30 on a penalty, and again on a long drive down the field, to make the final score 39-13. This was perhaps a slightly discouraging game. Appleby had a powerful team, and did not seem to be bothered by the oppressive heat and humidity. Also, T.C.S. had only right shift plays by this time, TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD TEAM FOOTBALL DE I GS BI .CS. THE T m M 16 ... K5 .... E5 Q . :J LJ ,..

BIGSIDE vs. THE OLD BOYS At Port Hope September 25 Lost 1-0 This is the first year T.C.S. has used the single-wing formation in some time. Certainly none of the players had used it before, and the team had to start with fundamentals, which take time to learn. As a result, Bigside was not very well prepared against a group of Old Boys, most of whom knew the single-wing system inside out. Bigside's defence, however, was in fairly good shape, as the score in- dicates. Will Hafner in particular, played well. It was the offense that could 11ot seem to get moving, partially because the Old Boys knew all the plays we had practised, but also because our blocking was not up to par. The second quarter showed very little improvement over the first. Although Bigside's offense improved, the Old Boys' defense tightened up, prolonging the stalemate. The Old Boys brought Mr. Lawson on to kick, and immediately the crowd roared, "Ban the Bomb!" Mr. Lawson then threw a pass for a thirty-yard gain, and in the fol- lowing play, ran twenty yards on an end-run to end the scoreless half. By the third quarter, both sides were quite tired but still played hard. The Old Boys managed to get the only point of the game on a kick into Bigside's end-zone. The fourth quarter showed the most action from both sides. Bigside played hard, in an effort to score. The Old Boys managed to contain them, however, and the score re- mained 1-0 for the Old Boys. The usual excitement of the annual Old Boys' game was lacking this year, mainly because the offense could not break through either team's defense. There were no spectacular end-runs, no 'long-bomb' passes, and no long drives through the line. The teams seemed to be so evenly matched that it made for a rather unexciting game. BIGSIDE vs. HILLFIELD At Hamilton September 29 Won 20-7 Ian Taylor kicked off for Bigside to start a hard-hitting first quar- ter. The play moved back and forth fairly regularly, but Bigside ob- viously had the upper hand. Defensive work was good on both sides, Embury standing out, when he intercepted a short Hillfield pass on our 20-yard line. Late in the second quarter Hillfield scored the first touch- down of the game on a pass-run combination. A startled Bigside pulled themselves together and retaliated immediately after the touch- down, with a thirty-yard run-back by Jim Binch. Time ran out though, with Bigside deep in Hillfield territory and a touchdown to go. llillfield kicked off to start the second half, and again Binch ran the ball hack 30 yards. This was the first time Bigside realized they had some power as a team. It wasn't until nearly half-time that Bigside really began to move, and from that point on we controlled the ball. Early in the third quarter Tittemore scored, after a series of off-tackle plays had brought the revitalized Trinity team all the way down the field. Later in the quarter, Bigside began to use the line plays again, and rolled llillfield back to their goal line. Brian Hamilton scored the touchdown on a left end reverse. The convert was a completed pass to Will Hafner. The final Trinity touchdown came during the fourth quar- ter on an end-run by Binch, to make the score 20-7 for Bigside. We had won our first game.

Kicking off, we showed our strength early, by holding R.M.C. to less than five yards' progress. From our own forty-five yard line, we started on a forceful march down the field. Steve Frisbee made two spectacular catches, and Jim Tittemore knifed through the middle for Trinity's first touchdown. The convert was a completed pass to Hafner. R.M.C. struck back with a few long passes, but because of fine de- fensive teamwork, and good tackling by Cruickshank and Noble, they had to satisfy themselves with a safety touch. The second quarter was less exciting. The ball see-sawed back and forth in the visitors' end, with Trinity making some impressive runs, and showing excellent blocking. Thus the half ended with Trinity lead- ing by a score of 7-1. Then, at the beginning of the second half, Jim Tittemore scored on a dazzling thirty-five yard end-run, to increase our lead to 12 points. But R.M.C. started to retaliate as they put on the pressure. They gradually worked their way down the field to score, in spite of our de- fensive efforts. Will Hafner smothered the ball to prevent the convert. The game took a sudden turn for the worse, as R.M.C. blocked a punt, and kicked the ball over the goal line for a touchdown. Their con- vert was blocked. The atmosphere now became very tense. With the score tied at 13-13 and time running out, the game hung in the balance. T.C.S. started to roll again, as Jim Binch carried the ball for five successive plays around the right end, for average gains of well over ten yards. The tremendous downfield drive by the team culminated in a major by Jim Tittemore to make the final score 19-13. Even though the end of the game was in sight, Trinity did not slacken her pace. In- stead, we managed to bring the ball back to the Visitors' one-yard line, and would no doubt have scored again had time not run out. BIGSIDE vs. LAKEFIELD At Port Hope October 6 Won 27-6 By this time Bigside was beginning to play as a team. Blocking, tackling, and running were much better than in the previous games, owing largely to both practice and desire. In the first quarter, neither team could push the other past its thirty-yard line, and punting was frequent. Lakefield, using a loose offensive line-up, managed to hold Bigside just as well. Finally, John Stobie, back in action after suffer- ing a foot injury, scored a touchdown in the second quarter. Then, following Stobie's example, Bigside rolled down the field again, and Jim Binch went over for another touchdown, converted by John Mulholland. The Lakefield defence managed to break up many T.C.S. plays after that, until, near the end of the half, Bigside surged all the way down- field, Iiinch scoring again on a fast end-run. Mulholland converted the touchdown to end the half with the score 20-0 for T.C.S. Both teams returned after the half, to play a fairly even third quar- ter, in which neither team managed to score. Both teams seemed to have mastered the other's opposition tactics, and Bigside took advantage of a few Lakefield fumbles. Lakefield scored their first touchdown in the beginning of the fourth quarter, on a pass to John Mitchell, but were unable to convert it.

With the game almost over, Pat Little scored one last point for Bigside with a kick into I,akefield's end zone. Lakefield were unable to run the ball out, and the game ended with the score at 27-6 for Bigside. This is the first year the Grove has played Bigside, and it is a credit to them that they held Trinity so well. T.C.S. vs. De VEAUX At Niagara Falls October 9 Won 21-14 Having received the kick-off, Bigside used a variety of right-shift plays and moved steadily down the field. Although the team was making good yardage, it became obvious that De Veaux was hitting very hard indeed, and were beginning to hold very well. After this first successful rush, Bigside couldn't seem to consolidate their attack, and thus the weight fell on the defence. Playing stubborn- lv, the defence yielded only fourteen points in the rest of the half. The first De Veaux touchdown came in the first quarter with a long pass- run combination. They converted, making the score 7-0. Then moving the ball well, De Veaux ground their way downfield until poised on our five-yard line. They were held for two downs but then called the end- run for the major. This was not converted, but they picked up an extra point on a touchback. Thus De Veau led 14-0 at the end of the half. Whatever happened during half-time should be written down and put in the school history, because T.C.S. came out a different team. The change could be seen from the opening kick-off as Bigside executed the second "Charge of the Light Brigade", and, led by Bob Noble, snowed under the De Veaux ball carrier. Again backed up by a sterling defence, the offensive squad did their stuff. Smashing through the right side of the line, Bigside consistently made good yardage. The plays were working simply through desire. It is difficult to name a star, because this was primarily a team effort. Binch put T.C.S. on the scoreboard by sprinting around the right end early in the third quarter. Then, in the fourth quarter, De Veaux finally broke, and the game opened right up. Binch got the second touchdown through the middle, Mulholland adding the extra point again to tie the score. Then Hamil- ton ran his reverse for the winning T.D., Mulholland again adding the point. We had travelled a long way to play this game, and it was worth it. L.B.F. GAMES BIGSIDE vs. S.A.C. At Aurora October 16 Lost 33-13 Bigside launched into its first L.B.F. game after a highly success- ful series of exhibition games. Naturally our hopes were high as we tackled the Saints. We received the kick-off, but our very first play, a pass, was inter- cepted. S.A.f'. powered through our defensive line, and in a dazzling five plays got a converted touchdown. Bigside then got the ball again, but fumbled it away three plays later. The Saints' superior power and speed then materialized, as McKeen of S.A.C. ran a beautiful draw play for the Saints' second major. The second quarter saw Trinity's defense tighten TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 93 PAT KICKS TAYLOR PASSES TAYLOR CARRIES JIM AROUND THE LEFT END THE CROWD AT S.A.C. Dustan, Millard and Rowlinson 94 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD up, sparked by Embury and Jackson. The score at half-time remained 15-0 for S.A.t'. In the third quarter, Bigside offense materialized. On the reverse, Hamilton scampered 60 yards for Trinity's first touchdown. However, soon after the kick-off, S.A.C. scored yet another major. lint this time, Bigside came back strongly with excellent running by Hint-h and Tittemore. We marched to the Saints' 30 yard line. Ham- ilton again got the ball on the reverse, and outsped the opposition for our last touchdown. But the Saints were not finished vet. for a last minute S.A.C. rush resulted in a touchdown, making the final score 33-12 for S.A.C. Big- side really defeated themselves. We were keyed up for this game. too keyed up perhaps. for we fumbled the ball four times. The stars for T.C.S. were Tim Embury, whose blocking and tackles were excellent, and Brian Hamilton who scored both touchdowns. Jim Tittemore was the leading ground gainer with 96 yards rushing, while Hamilton had the best aver- age of 22 yds. per carry. Despite considerable carelessness on many occasions, this was never- theless one of the best games Bigside had played in many years. BIGSIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope October 23 Lost 12-0 Bigside played host to a strong Upper Canada first team on a black threatening day for their second L.B.F. game. The field was muddy and the sky was overcast, with intermittent showers. Thus the condi- tions favoured a running game, and it seemed unlikely that U.C.C. would be able to duplicate their passing victory of last year. T.C.S. won the toss and elected to receive. Taking the ball on our 30-yard line, Bigside surprised the overconfident U.C.C. squad by mak- ing two fast first downs. However, the visitor's defense soon tightened, and we punted our way out of trouble. U.C.C. displayed its power by running their first play 20 yards around the end. A few plays later, they too were forced to punt. The play see-sawed back and forth, un- til Tittemore drew the crowd to their feet by just barely overthrowing to Frisbee who was in the clear. Upper Canada took over the ball and drove into the line for a few good gains. The next play they completely fooled our defense, by run- ning a reverse. for a 25-yard touchdown. The convert failed, and the half ended at 6-0 for our visitors. The second half continued to be a defensive game. Neither side seemed to be able to get rolling, though U.C.C. definitely had the edge offensively. Jackson. Hafner and Noble shone on defense. consistently shaking up the U.C.C. ball carriers with bone-crushing tackles. It was late in the third quarter that Upper Canada earned their second T.D., by running the right end. This clinched the victory, for time was fast running out. Thus the game ended 12-0 for the visitors. It is well worth noting that U.C.C. did not complete one pass. This indicates a much improved pass defence, anchored by Cruickshank at safety. Bigsicle had improved tremendously even from the fine S.A.C. game a week before. As befits the style of play, the highlight of the game was .lackson's tremendous downfield tackling. Also, it is to the credit of the team that they held U.C.C. to only 12 points. The weather conditions were a small factor compared to the tremendous spirit shown by Bigside in this, the best L.B.F. game seen here in many years.

We were sure that this was the game we could win. On the first set of plays, Ridley could get nowhere. They punted, but we fumbled the return on our own five-yard line. Johnston soon plunged over for Rid- ley's first major. Then, after a series of fumbles and penalties, Ridley in turn was forced to punt. Bob Noble blocked the kick, which bounced hack into the Ridley end zone. Embury pounced on the ball for our first touchdown. The convert was good, and the score stood 7-6 for Bigside. Ridley then came storming back on a series of passes, for two touch- downs in the second quarter, the latter on the last play of the half. Thus the score stood 18-7 for Ridley. Bigside still felt they could win, but on the kick-off to start the second half, MacLean of Ridley ran the ball a spectacular 75 yards for a touchdown. This was the final blow for Bigside. From then on nothing seemed to click. Ridley scored three tochdowns in the third quarter and three in the fourth, making the final score a humiliating 50-7, which seemed to be a complete reversal of the effort made in the U.C.C. game the week before. High words of praise must be heaped on the Ridley team, for they executed their plays with astonishing speed and precision. Bill Jerner and Rick Spencer were the stars for Ridley, each scoring two touch- downs. There were no stars for T.C.S. MIDDLE lllll Flllll'llllLL Captain's Report As indicated by our record of five wins and three losses, Middle- side had a highly successful season. Two of the games we lost, against Ridley and de la Salle, were both very close, and could have gone either wayg and although U.C.C. easily beat us on their home ground early in the season, we beat them decisevely in the return game. We also beat de la Salle in their return game. Success, however, is measured in more ways than in just a won- lost record, we had a lot of fun. Great spirit and a great amount of effort combined to produce an excellent team this year. It was a team effort all the way, and we all worked as a unit. How could a team be dull with Mr. Hargraft's jokes, Brent Kay's horse-laugh and Fred Beck's bloodthirsty yells? On behalf of Middleside we would like to thank Mr. Hargraft for his excellent coaching. With his help the play- ers developed their individual skills to the utmost. -Mark Frostad and Karl Scott Middleside Summary Middleside Kenner At T.C.S. Won 38-0 Middleside U.C.C. At U.C.C.

MIDDLESIDE vs. U.C.C. At Toronto September 25 Lost 25-6 In their first L.B.F. game of the year, Middleside played poorly against a U.C.C. team that could have been beaten. The blocking was far from good, and U.C.C. scored on their first play, with an end sweep. On the punt following the next unsuccessful T.C.S. series, the U.C.C. receiver ran through the whole Trinity team for a 95-yard touchdown, to make the score 13-0 at the end of the first quarter. T.C.S. hopes looked dim. During the second quarter though, our plays suddenly be- gan to click, with McPherson making important gains. Mark Frostad finally went over for the touchdown that put us back in the game. In the second half, however, we lapsed back to the careless play which had characterized the first quarter. U.C.C. scored twice on end runs, while T.C.S. couldn't get their offense going. Thus the game ended 25-6. Middleside was not prepared for this, their first L.B.F. game. We had only four offensive plays, all right shift, and it did not take U.C.C. long to figure this out. The team had also not practiced defense. As a result, reactions were slow to the Upper Canada plays, and the tackling was comparatively poor. However, this was to be the only poor game Middleside played all season. In our return match with U.C.C. we were to more than reverse the score, avenging our defeat in the first game. MIDDLESIDE vs. RIDLEY At Port Hope October 11 Lost 8-6 After an extremely close and exciting game a week before with de la Salle, in which Middeside came out on the short end, we were determined to win this game against Ridley. Not surprising, then, during the first quarter we played some of our best football of the whole season. Play was very even for the whole of the first half, each team stalling the other's attack well in front of the goal line. Frostad and McPherson sparked the offense, while the defense did a good job keeping Ridley's yardage low. However, towards the half, T.C.S., ham- pered by penalties, let Ridley get within striking distance, enabling them to kick a single point. Minutes later, Ridley did the same thing again, to make the score stand 2-0 at the half. T.C.S. got off on the wrong foot as they entered into the second half. During the whole of the third quarter we lacked the spark with which the team fired themselves up in the first quarter. Ridley marched downfield on a series of passes for a major, making the score 8-0. However, it was here, going into the final quarter, that Middleside 98 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD caught tire. We moved all the way down the field in four plays, on heautitul running by Scott and Frostad. Cook soon went over for the T.D. With Trinity behind by a mere two points, the tension and ex- cittment increased to the exploding point. After throwing Ridley for a loss, 'l'.t'.S. moved downfield for their final offensive drive. Frostad t-miie literally within an inch of scoring, on a long drive up the center. llowt-ver, in three downs T.C.S. could not manage to get the winning touclnlown. Time had run out, and the score remained a heartbreaking 8-6. MIDDLESIDE vs. S.A.C. At Aurora October 16 Won 19-0 Middleside managed to keep S.A.C. well under control in the first quarter, but could not get their offense Working long enough to score. In the second quarter, Kent made a good run for a major, but owing to a penalty it was called back. However, on the next play, Frostad passed to Scott and we regained that lost T.D. The convert was Wide, making the score at half-time 6-0 for T.C.S. In the third quarter, the T.C.S. defense had pushed S.A.C. deep into their own territory, when Beck recovered an S.A.C. fumble on the Saints' two yard line. The offense wasted no time capitalizing on this, and Frostad went over for a T.D. on the first play. The convert by Kent was good. In the fourth quarter, Kent intercepted an S.A.C. pass, and ran it THE MIDDLESIDE FOOTBALL TEAM Ifront lion. l. to R: A. L. Hellens, A. W. Todd, E. J. Wright qvice-capt.J, M.

A few minutes later, Frostad slipped across the goal line once again, to complete the scoring. The Middleside defense was extremely alert in this game. Beck, Cook, Frostad, Elcock and Wright all tackled well, while Elcock, Cook and Kent made intercep- tions. Our offense worked fairly successfully: S.A.C. stopped any long runs that might have developed, but could not keep Trinity from mak- ing consistent yardage for the first downs at the vital moments. Fros- tad, Scott and McPherson all ran well and Machum, Holton and Hellens must be given credit for good blocking on the line plays and on the end runs. MIDDLESIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope October 23 Won 33-6 With a winning streak of three games behind us, in which we had kept our opponents scoreless, Middleside began the game in high spirits, confident that U.C.C. would not beat us again. Mark Frostad, on the first set of T.C.S. series, broke through the unprepared U.C.C. line on an off-tackle play, for a 65-yard dash downfield. With 20 yards to go, McPherson skirted the end for a touchdown, converted by Kent, to make the score 7-0 early in the first quarter. Trinity soon had the ball again, and moved steadily downfield. McPherson carried the ball over, for his second touchdown, by outspeeding the opposition on an- other end-run. Kent again converted, to push our total to 14 points. Again, towards half-time, T.C.S. scored when Frostad dashed around the end. This half was a perfect example of how spirit can help a team. The defence had no trouble containing U.C.C., and the offensive line did a terrific job blocking for the runners, enabling them to score three touchdowns. Nor did Trinity let up in the second half. Excellent blocking led to McPherson's third T.D. of the game, making the score 26-0 as we went into the fourth quarter. All this time, the defense held Upper Canada scoreless. Frostad, Scott, Pollock, Holton, Beck, Alan Todd, Kent and Joy all deserve special credit for tackling well. By late in the fourth quarter, Trinity had again forced her way into Upper Canada terri- tory. Biggs made a spectacular 40-yard run through the center for our final T.D. Kent converted, making the score 33-0. It appeared as though we were headed for another shutout -- the fourth in a row. However, U.C.C., following a tremendous spurt. scored on the last play of the game. A 33-6 win, though, was certainly a fitting conclusion to a successful season. LITTLE lllll ll0ll'l'llilLL Captain's Report This year's Littleside had a very enjoyable, if not successful sea- son. We got off to a very slow start, and as a result were soundly beaten in our first two games. However, these games were extremely helpful to the team. Their outcome seemed to make us even more determined to prove our ability, both to the school and to ourselves. We feel that we can safely say, on behalf of the team, that we are satisfied. Throughout the season the team seemed constantly to im- prove, and we showed increasing enthusiasm both in the practices and 100 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD in the games. Our play became more aggressive, and as a result we managed to win two and tie two of our final six games. We feel that we have come 21 long way since the start of the season. On behalf of the entire Littleside team we would like to thank Mr. Dale und Mr. Goebel for their continual assistance and patience. We would also like to thank Mr. Scott and Bob Rudolf for their generous help throughout the season. -Dick McLernon and Hunter McDonald Littleside Summary Littleside Appleby 2nds.

At Toronto September 25 Lost 33-1 This was Littleside's second game and, although the score does not indicate it, the squad played well, and many things were learned about the team. During the first half, the T.C.S. offence could not seem to get going, although they were utilizing a new secret weapon - the block. which had been sorely lacking the day before, in the scrim- mage with Port Hope High. The defense worked hard as well, but they could not contain the stronger U.C.C. offense. They too were using a secret new weapon, the tackle, which, oddly enough, worked very well when applied low. fThis came as a surprise to many mem- bers of the teamll In the first half, Littleside's main yardage was supplied by David Camp and Peter Vaisler. Even though at the end of the half, Upper Canada led 26-0, T.C.S. spirits did not lag. Had the game started at the beginning of the se- cond half, the score would have been very much different ibut unfor- tunately it didn'tJ. The defence who had been playing steadily did not give up.

The offense also went to work with renewed vigour, and in the dying minutes of the game made an 80-yard charge downfield, which enabled Vaisler to kick a single point on the last play of the game. Again Camp and Vaisler led the attack. Although Littleside was defeated, the game was most valuable, and showed that there was definitely a team in the making. LITTLESIDE vs. RIDLEY At Port Hope October 11 Lost 26-1 The game began on a cloudy day and a wet field. T.C.S. won the toss and chose to receive the ball, and in the first few minutes. Camp sparked the offence with his excellent running. The teams battled around the center field until halfway through the first quarter, when B.R.C. kicked a single. Then Ridley soon added to its score when Mc- Leish tumbled into the end zone on a completed pass. The convert was good. In the opening minutes of the second quarter, Morley put his toe to work and picked up a single point. The score remained 8-1 until Ridley came within kicking range, to make the score 9-1 at the half. The third quarter increased the "Black and Orange" lead with two single points. With the score remaining at 11-1 until the latter part of the fourth quarter, Trinity was still within striking distance. How- ever, Ridley began to show their superior strength as they scored two more converted touchdowns and a single point before the final gun. 102 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The Littleside pass defence did not seem to be able to cope with a strong Ridley pass attack, and the offence also lacked the punch necessary for a sustained downfield drive. The tackling, however, showed signs of iniprovenicnt over the previous games, Bull and Vaiser standing out for T.t'.S. Congratulations must go to Ridley's Jock McLeish on his three touchdowns, and to Tom Houlding for kicking five single points. LITTLESIDE vs. S.A.C. At Aurora October 16 Tied 6-6 The first quarter opened with S.A.C. receiving the kick-off, and subsequently beginning a determined drive up the field. Just before the end of the first quarter S.A.C. put a good play into action, which resulted in their first T.D. Trinity attempted a comeback, but fumbled in the dying seconds of the quarter. The score -- T.C.S. 0, S.A.C. 6. Both teams played well in the second quarter. Under the leader- ship of Vaisler and Bell, the defense muffled the Saints' attack, and at the half, the score remained 6-0 in favour of S.A.C. Trinity opened the second half by receiving the ball. We made several good offensive plays, but failed just short of a touchdown. Just before the end of the third quarter, however, Morley intercepted an S.A.C. pass, and galloped fifty yards for the tying T.D. Tension increased, going into the fourth quarter, as both teams did their utmost to break the tie. At one crucial point in the quarter S.A.C. was on the Trinity five, but T.C.S. foiled the touchdown. Then, in the dying seconds of the game, Cawley intercepted an S.A.C. pass, and ran twenty yards before being tackled. Thus the game ended in a 6-6 tie. LITTLESIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope October 23 Lost 26-6 Despite the large score against us, this was one of the best games the Littleside team played all season. The first quarter was the prime example of this, for there was hard hitting on both sides and really "heads-up" football. The offense, under captain Dick McLernon, managed to make their way up the field time after time, but each time failed to score. The defense played their usual outstanding game, holding the U.C.C. team scoreless. Ar- thur Bull, Jim Robson, Rob Bell, and John Wade consistently tackled XV6 . In the second quarter, due largely to a very muddy field, the of- fense lost its punch, the ball carriers being unable to gain a sure foot- ing. Even though the defense fought all the way, U.C.C. managed to get thirteen points, while T.C.S. was held scoreless. g The third quarter saw more hard hitting and rough going. The T.ff.S. offense again could not seem to get going. Even with the com- bination of David Camp and Peter Vaisler running some beautiful plays, we were held scoreless. The defense held U.C.C. to one uncon- verted touchdown. In the fourth quarter, U.C.C. got a quick touchdown, and the quar- ter continued, with T.C.S. determined to get on the scoreboard. Final- TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 103 ly, with about five minutes to play, Peter Vaisler plowed his way through the Center, helped by Haig who threw a key block, to score Trinity's first and only touchdown. This was indeed a well-fought game, and we congratulate U.C.C. on the two fine games we had with 0 C U ll ll them during the season. The Centennial Year marks the return of soccer to the Senior School. It is a quiet return, frowned upon by many football enthusi- astsg but nevertheless the sport is at last being played again, despite its unrecognized status and completely voluntary participation. The attempted re-entry of the sport is confronted by many of the same problems which caused its exit a few years ago. It seems T.C.S. is not big enough to house two major fall sportsg there are just not enough people, or playing fields. If soccer were officially recognized it would mean the disappearance of Middleside League and to many, who see the League as a farm system for Bigside, this would be very THE T.C.S.

Agreed, Middleside League does involve the playing of football, but the amount of instruction of foot- ball basics to be found is minute. However, this fact is obviously not very influential, for the League will probably be with us for quite some time, and soccer will remain unrecognized until the enlargement of the school. The team this year was comprised largely of those remaining from a Championship team back in Boulden House. We had not had a chance to play together for three years, but our interest in soccer was still strong enough for us to start a team this year. Practices were held whenever we could find time outside of football, and soon four games were arranged. We improved greatly over the season, losing first to Ridley and SAC, but coming in to win our last two games 4-0 and 6-0 against UCC and Lakefield respectively. Team spirit and unity were high throughout the season, and the experiment can be generally con- sidered a success. We hope the experiment will be continued, and that Mr. Goering and Mr. Godfrey will keep the sport alive. They were cer- tainly excellent coaches for us, and we hope they will make their ser- vices available to those who wish to carry on. -Andy Barnard, Captain Soccer Statistics T.C.S. vs. Ridley At T.C.S.

L. 1 T.C.S. vs. RIDLEY At Port Hope October 11 Lost 6-2 This year's soccer squad, under the able coaching of Mr. Goer- ing and Mr. Godfrey, put on a very fine showing against seasoned Rid- ley opposition. The team consisted entirely of volunteers, who usually practice after football games or workouts. Andy Barnard of T.C.S. scored the first goal of the game early in the first half, to get Trinity off to a good start. Play continued fairly evenly until Ridley managed to score with a short, fast kick past the Trinity goalie, Skip Willis. Ridley scored three more times before the half. After half-time, Bob Mewhurn got Trinity's spirits back up with a goal, to make the score 4-2 for the opposition. However, Ridley's shots were deadly, and they managed to shoot two more through the posts before the end of the game. ''. by no means trounced Trinity, as the score might indicate. Hldlffi' goals were very hard-earned and T.C.S. continually threatened to score. Through lack of experience, though, the T.C.S. defense could not manage to hold out under the pressure of a strong Ridley attack. Scoring for Ridley were Terry Rapsey, Tom Stone, Charles Ash-- baugh, Bill Oshei, and Richard Creighton Cwho scored twicel. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 105 T.C.S. vs. S.A.C. At Aurora October 16 Lost 3-0 The soccer team went to Aurora with the right attitude. We were determined to improve over the previous week's performance against Ridley, and because we lacked experience, We made it an object to learn from our many mistakes. The defense found it difficult to defend against a strong Saints' attack, but played very well in spite of this. However, as the score indicates, our main problem was not one of defense, but one of offense. We were able to get the ball into the opponents' end quite easily, but we could not keep it there. Many of our shots were wide of the net, and we could not manage to control the ball quickly enough to get into scoring position. This is a criticism of our play, but at the same time all the players must be congratulated on a fine showing. Everyone played hard, and the spirit was always high. We held S.A.C. to two goals in the first half, and to one in the second half. Trinity came close to scoring many times, and surely would have, but for the excellent S.A.C. goal- keeping. T.C.S. vs. U.C.C. 2nds. At Port Hope October 23 Won 4-0 Trinity, anxious to win their first game of the season, pressed hard from the opening kick-off. During the first half, T.C.S. kept U.C.C. bottled up in their end. Everyone covered his man well, and unlike the previous two games, beat the opponent to the ball. This more aggressive play made the difference. U.C.C. never really threatened us in the first half, and the defense had no trouble in breaking up their rushes, and clearing the ball downfield. However, despite the good play all round, Mewburn was the only Trinity scorer in the first half, when he managed to tip the ball in during a scramble around the goal. It should be mentioned, perhaps, that due to almost a week of con- tinuous rain, the field was extremely slippery, and even the soccer cleats did not prevent the players from slipping and getting covered with mud. This may have affected the Upper Canada team, but T.C.S. did not seem to be bothered by the bad conditions. In fact the mud became a sign of dis- tinction! It showed who was playing harder. Things seem to click in the second half, and, as often happens, al- though U.C.C. played much better than they had in the first half, we were able to score three more goals. Mewburn, Barnard and Segal tallied from close in, giving the U.C.C. goalie no chance in the muddy conditions. N Standings: Ridley - 6, U.C.C. - 5, S.A.C. - 3, T.C.S. - 2 Upon arrival at school early in September, preparation for the Little Big Four Tennis Tournament began. A large initial turnout was soon narrowed to seven, and then five: Nick Cabell, Art Kaminis, Pat Little, John McCallum, and Doug Segal. For two weeks, this group practised, often after chapel, under the careful supervision of Mr. Franklin. Then, on Wednesday, September 22, the team travelled to the Bad- minton and Racquet Club in Toronto for the Tournament. After the 106 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD nun-ning's play. the T.C'.S. score was far from impressive, showing no points front our four matches. Two things became apparent as the afternoon progressed: that Rid- ley was heatling for a repeat of their last year's performance, and that T.t'.S., with only one player back from last year, was not going to fare as well as they had in the past. Play finally ended at about 4:30, T.C.S. winding up with two points, scored hy the doubles team of Captain Pat Little and of Nick Cabell. St. Antlrew's was third with three points, U.C.C. second, scoring 5 points. Ridley won the tournament for the second year in a row. Our congratulations go to the Ridley No. 1 player, Terry Whelpton, who for the second straight year won all three of his matches. The T.C.S. showing is not to the detriment of its players. Art Kaminis. No. 1, played exceptionally well, and took his S.A.C. oppon- ent to three sets, before bowing out. He was commended by the tour- nament organizer, Mr. D. R. Boquet, for fine stroke play and 'fight", even when heavily down. John McCallum, No. 2, played his usual base- line game. and gave an excellent account of himself. Pat Little, a member of last year's victorious doubles team, combined with Nick Cabell in a real team effort to defeat the U.C.C. and S.A.C. teams, and to be narrowly defeated by Ridley. T.C.S. has an excellent tennis future. With Kaminis, McCallum, and Little returning next year, the nucleus of a strong team with a THE TENNIS TEAM Left to Right: Mr. Franklin qcoachj, J. C. P.

And with the development of some other tennis players in the school, next year's team promises to be more rewarding in terms of victories. The team would like to thank Mr. Franklin for his guidance and supervision, Without which they would not have survived. And we would like to thank the Badminton and Racquet Club for the gener- ous use of their facilities. Also, particular thanks are due to the par- ticipants from Ridley, U.C.C., and S.A.C. for a very enjoyable day. -Pat Little, Captain The Independent Seheel Championship Dinghy ltaees The races this year were held on the week-end of September 18th to 19th. There were seven events, three on Saturday afternoon, and four on Sunday, in which seven schools competed: Appleby, Hillfield, Ashbury, Ridley, U.C.C., T.C.S., and Lakefield, The boats used were fourteen foot Nordbergs. Winds were light to very light, but luckily were steady in direction. The T.C.S. team, consisting of Kevin Haffey, skipper, with Eric Machum as crew, put up a very good performance. Haffey sailed very well, em- ployed good tactics, and made some excellent starts. T.C.S. was placed second on total points for the seven races. Our team was indeed very unlucky not to win the championship for, in the last race, Haffey made an excellent start, and was forging well ahead of the fleet when the lash- ing which held the mainsheet block to the boom, parted, through no fault of his own. He managed to hold the boom with one hand and steer with the other, until Machum could make a temporary repair. But in the re- sulting confusion, the T.C.S. boat dropped to fifth place, and Haffey did very well to catch up and come in third. Appleby won the Championship. The placing of the boats was as follows: 1. Appleby 3514 points 5. Ridley 26 points 2. T.C.S. 301f2 points 6. Hillfield 24113 points 3. Ashbury 29 points 7. U.C.C. 1415 points 4. Lakefield 2814 points Pickering and S.A.C. did not compete this year. The boys spent the night at Lakefield, as did the accompanying masters. Altogether it was a most enjoyable weekend, even if more wind would have been welcomed. Our thanks go to Lakefield's Headmaster, Mr. Jack Marthews and to Mr. Townsend who was in charge of the races, for their hospitality and excellent organization.

Scott for his leadership TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 111 in this project. It fills a long standing need in Boulden House. We welcome to the Staff of Boulden House Mr. Michael Perry and Mr. John Geale. Our congratulations to Mr. Stephen Hart and a warm welcome to his charming wife. Mr. John Burns has left us to teach History and English in the Senior School. We wish him the very best of luck. Mr. Burns has made an out- standing contribution to Boulden House over a period of twenty-two years in the fields of History and English. He has also built up our Library and proved himself an able author and director of our School Pantomime. Our very sincere thanks to him for all he has done over the years. We shall miss him. The Stratford Excursion On September the twenty-second all of Grade Nine and some Senior School boys went to Stratford to see the play Julius Caesar. It was a long bus ride to Stratford, but the time passed quickly. When We arrived we found a few busloads of girls already there. After we had eaten lunch everyone rushed over to the girls. It was a warm, sunny day and we had time to stroll around and talk together until the play started. The play was really interesting and quite exciting in parts. I think it was well worth it, because when you have seen the play you can remem- ber the various characters acting their parts when the play is read in class. After the play we had supper in the town. Most of us ended up being overcharged or eating cold, greasy hamburgers. The trip back to the School passed quickly with everyone singing songs or telling jokes. All in all, I think the trip was most successful, and I hope it will be repeated next year. -B. Patterson, IIAU The School Picnic Tuesday, October the nineteenth, dawned bright and cool. This, after many postponements, was to be the date of the Boulden House picnic. We broke study at 11.25 a.m. and after changing into old clothes piled, in a supposedly orderly fashion, into the two school buses which came to pick us up. Mrs. Moore's farm, our destination, was only a short drive away. Upon our arrival, we unloaded the food from the buses then formed a line to get the sausages, bacon and dough-nuts for each boy. Each group got a frying pan, matches, and kindling with which to cook its food. This gave us an opportunity to sample each other's good f?J cooking. As the afternoon went on some of us climbed the high shale cliff on the opposite side of the Ganaraska River, others played games, read, or just explored the area. We all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and would like to thank Mrs. Moore and Mr. Tottenham for a very good time. -C. G.

We have a referee, But he doesn't see, And that's why they call us Snipe. Oh it's true they have a real team, But when asked, we only beam, We are the roughest of 'em all, And that's why they call us Snipe. All of us, on the team Couldn't run or we'd split a seam. And if us you've seen out on the field, You'd say that we were on Snipe. And in conclusion, I'd like to say, That if you ever come our way, You'd better duck fast If the ball comes past, For we are all on Snipe. -F.

The Room During the first minute of my consciousness I did not know where I was. I just knew that I was in some kind of undesirable room. The last thing I could remember was passing out after having been struck on the head. Now my eyes were becoming accustomed to the dark, so I was able to see the stone ceiling and walls. There was a trickling stream going right across the middle of the earthen floor. I looked behind me and saw a figure lying on the ground on the other side of the room. I noticed a chain on his ankleg seeing it there made me quickly glance at my ankle, and al- though I had not noticed it before there was one on mine too. I observed that the chains were attached to rings in the wall, and that they were long enough to allow us to reach the stream which ran between us. I concluded that this stream was our source of drinking water. Suddenly I heard a squeak and my eyes were blinded by light. A man threw down something that he must have expected the other prisoner and myself to eat. When he slammed the door shut I noticed that light showed through the cracks in the door. I spoke to the other man. He raised his head to look at me and mumbled something I was unable to understand, then he dropped off to sleep again. I realized that I was a prisoner and that this room was a dungeon, but I was so weary that this did not seem to matter and I too fell asleep. -Tom Richards, IIA2 A Viking Roid The two rows of brightly coloured Viking ships drew near to the grey coast. As they approached a native look-out gave a shout and ran along the pebble beach to warn the village. Soon a multitude of natives with stone-axes, spears, bows and arrows, and primitive swords gathered along the dark, rocky cliffs. The air was tense as everyone on the shore anticipated the approaching struggle. Soon, the fierce dragon boats, like great reptiles, pawed the shore and were heached. Then, with cries and yells, the defenders descended upon the invaders from the cliffs. The husky, tough, invaders clambered over the sides of their monstrous craft and waded to the shore to meet the onslaught. The two opposing groups clashed, and everywhere there could be heard the shouts and cries of wounded and dying men mingled with the ring of metal crashing against metal. The centre ranks of the TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 115 defenders slowly gave way and soon shouts of triumph could be heard as the right and left flanks also retreated before the hacking, swinging swords of the wild Norsemen. Dead men lay everywhere as the blood- spattered invaders tramped over the beach towards the helpless village. -Eric Hammond, IIAU The Blclckmcail In the moonlight, the pale figure glided towards me. It stopped sud- denly. Through the eerie mist I could see a shrouded figure encloaked in a black robe. The black hat on the sinister figure was pulled down covering those fleeting eyes. I knew that this was the time. I slowly walked towards the person. Tiny raindrops met with the beads of cold sweat and trickled down my face. All along I knew that this might be my last walk into the shadowy night. I thought of the time when I had walked this route before, never dreaming it would come to this. The eerie figure stepped closer. My heart missed a beat and then began pumping violently. I was about one hundred yards away from the man. Everything was quiet, except for the slow, weird clicking of heels against pavement and the wind ominously whistling through the trees and past my face. Finally he was right beside me and I opened my coat and handed over a bulging brief case. I felt the dreaded. cold barrel of his revolver in my stomach. Not a word was said when all of a sudden the gun made an ear-splitting ring that pierced the silence of the night. The awesome shadow walked away. -Peter Blake, IIA1 Our Wonderful World Ot Colour What would we do without colour? I'm glad that Nature has pro- duced the colourful beauty of our environment. The season of Autumn has arrived in flares of red and brown. Looking down from a mountain peak a picture is spread out before us in living colour: a magnificent patch-work quilt. The blackness of a recently burnt field stands out stark against the orange haze of pumpkins. Yellow hay cradles the warm, brown soil. The gold of grain mixes with the reds, greens and russets of the apple orchards to produce a perfect sunset. Cornfields aare wavy, golden seas. The blue sky and sun reflects from the pumpkins splashing brilliant hues into the air. What a difference colour makes to our world. -S. Wilson, HB1 My Uncle's New Cor My uncle's name is Ian Bond, and his first cousin is James Bond. When the popular movie "Goldfinger" was drawing crowds, Uncle Ian purchased a custom made car styled after that of his cousin. Uncle Ian was a very good natured man, the best one could desire in uncles. I say this because he asked me to come with him on his trial run in the automobile. The new Super Guzzler was a beauty. Its overall colour was a light pastel grey and there was a lot of bright chrome along the seat backs and the stream-lined sides. The bumpers were made of titanium and at sixty miles an hour they were effective in smashing a solid brick wall. Comfortable red leather bucket seats adorned the interior. The bucket seat beside the driver could be used for either removing or im- prisoning undesirable passengers: for as well as being an ejector seat, it llti TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD could also ln- turnt-d into a giant bucket in which prisoners could be firmly held. A tlnshbonrd radio could transmit and receive signals to a range of ten thousand miles. The other electronic equipment included a concealed ranlqn' vqlnch could be put into operation by pressing a button. As Well as thc connnon-place smoke screen machine, the car also featured an oil slick sprctnler, a tire puncturer, and a concealed flame thrower. Inside the ratlintoi' a Luger pistol was mounted for use against SMERSH agents who nngln conceal themselves as gas station attendants. When the disguised ngcnt reniored the radiator cap, he got a neat bullet hole in the forehead! The car has one outstanding feature which overshadowed all the other gadgetry. Uncle Ian did not have to park the car. Instead, he just pressed a button and the car turned into a tie-clip. This special device was my dear Uncle lan's undoing - or rather doing-up, for he accidentally pressed the button while he was inside the automobile. At present he is in front of me, asleep in a matchboxg and the car, concealed as a tie-clip, had to be dismantled to get poor Uncle out. -W.

Returning to the single wing formation, the team was able to win two of six matches and to show themselves worthy com- petitors throughout the season. The first game was played at home against Appleby on Oct. Znd. R. Keefer called the signals exceptionally well and backfielders P.

The Boulden House de- fence controlled the play, allowing only one touchdown, late in the first half. The final score was 14-8. On Oct. 6th the squad travelled to The Grove to oppose Lakefield's third team. After yielding a touchdown on The Grove's first series of plays, Boulden House tightened its ranks. In the remainder of the hard- fought game, Boulden House narrowly missed several scoring chances and gave up only two more touchdowns. The first L.B.F. game of the season was played on Oct. 16th at S.A.C. Allowing an early touchdown and another major in the first half, the team came back to score on a reverse by G. Brown. However, a third touchdown by S.A.C. made the final score 19-7 despite the squad's dominance of the last quarter. At home to U.C.C. on Oct. 23rd Boulden House overwhelmed their opponents, scoring two majors by P. Blake to make the score 14-0 at half time. U.C.C. took control in the second half and scored two touch- downs, allowing one to Boulden House quarterback R. Keefer. On October 26th the last L.B.F. encounter took place at U.C.C. against Ridley. The accurate passing of Ridley's quarterback combined with powerful running produced six touchdowns for B.R.C. and a final score of 39-O. In the season's final game the Boulden House squad again met The Grove, this time at T.C.S. Determined to improve over the first Lakefield game, the squad produced their best effort of the year. Fight- ing back from a seven point deficit at the end of the first half, T. Bell burst through the middle of the line for a seventy-five yard touchdown. However, Lakefield redeemed themselves immediately by running back the ensuing kick-off for their second touchdown and were able to score another major before the final Whistle. It was a good season for Boulden House. In spite of an unimpres- sive won-lost record, each member of the squad reaped the benefits of competitive sportsmanship and felt the satisfaction of having taken part in a unified team effort. , -X I M ,F 4, V .Q ,.

'Q 1 ' No words or pictures can fully de- scribe all that goes on at this famous boarding school in the country. Because it goes on within a boy. Your son, perhaps. You may not notice the change at first. But under- neath you will find that his associations here-among his T.C.S. companions and especially with the masters--are introducing him in a practical way to the values of goodness, truth, honour, loyalty, self-control and hard work. On the playing field and in the class- room, T.C.S. stresses character develop- ment within a disciplined community. A boy learns to think . . . and to act accordingly. This is indeed a school for "the whole boy". And the time to take up resi- dence is in the formative years-Boulden House for younger boys starts with Grade 6.

Printed by The Guide Publishing Co. Ltd.. Port Hope, Ont. Editorial T.C.S. and 1967 I am reluctant even to mention the word 'centennial': we have all heard the word so often in this past year, that even the mere suggestion of it may cause many people to scream. Doubtless the Headmaster, the Governing Body, the T.C.S. Association, the Masters, and all who played a part in organizing the celebrations of last year can at last sink back into their chairs with a satisfied sigh, thankful that it's all over for another hundred years. ln another two years the leaders of Canada will be able to do much the same thing, with an equal sense of satisfaction and fulfilment. In the meantime. however, they are undergoing the same frantic pressures of preparation experienced during the buildup to the T.C.S. Centennial last year. To most of the people of the world, 1867 was a more portentuous year than 1865. A great many more people will celebrate and rejoice, and a great many more people will take note next year on July lst than did last year on May lst. The T.C.S. Centennial, which meant such a lot 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 3 to the T.C.S. family of Old Boys, students, parents and friends, will be greatly eclipsed when Canada comes of age. Eclipsed, yes, but not forgotten. Canada is a large country, and has a lot of more important things to worry about than a small boarding school in Port Hope. But nevertheless, T.C.S. has become an integral part of Canada, and has made consistently valuable contributions to all phases of her development since Confederation. The Centennial of Canada is not a time for sour grapes from the T.C.S. family, whose lime- light has been stolen, but is rather a time when we too can join in the cavalcade of nation-builders, and take credit for something that we have had a healthy share in creating. The T.C.S. family is small. After one hundred years of the school's existence. she has only produced just over 5000 Old Boys, barely enough men to fill a small town. There are even large high schools in Toronto whose yearly enrollment nearlv reaches this figure! There are two questions, it would seem then that one might ask: What possible good can a negligable 5000 men have done for a country like Canada? What good is a tiny isolated school like T.C.S. in the booming and fast-moving world of today? The answer to the first question should seem obvious. T.C.S. is, of necessity, a selective school, and consequently a great many of her meagre 5000 Old Boys have been qualified to take leading positions in all areas of Canadian affairs. The scholarship of her students has been outstand- ing over the years, with ten Rhodes Scholars, nearly 250 University scholarships, and over fifty graduate fellowships to Universities all over the continent and in England. These men have gone on to achieve even greater distinction in pursuits that completely span the spectrum of Ca- nadian life. Her long list of famous Old Boys includes a world-famous doctor. a famous Canadian poet, several well-known artists and musicians. many Bishops of the Church, a great number of politicians, teachers. and diplomats, a myriad presidents and other executive members of large companies, and a host of other distinguished men. T.C.S. owes her fine reputation to these Old Boys, who have given their School a nation-wide prestige and image that any other school would have difficulty in rival- gnlg. lThis is what a mere 5000 men have done for Canada and for their c oo. Nevertheless the realization of this can become a dangerous thing. Any inclination to sit back and bask in past glories will only lead to degeneration and eventual stagnation. And thus the answer to the second question becomes even more pressing. T.C.S. can and must con- tinue to play a vital role in the development of Canada: she must not stop now after one hundred years of such excellence. She possesses every facility to continue in her position of leadership, both through her inde- pendence from the Ontario Department of Education. and through the resulting freedom of teaching methods she enjoys. Already certain de- vices used now bv the Department in the standardized teaching of Eng- lish, History and Latin originated at T.C.S. and were first used here. The new Development Plan. which we will discuss in the final issue of the Record, was finally approved by the Governing Body in the middle of Lent Term. To be completed within five years. this plan will enlarge even further the facilities for the three-pronged education that T.C.S. boasts of giving. By augmenting, improving, and specializing the class- rooms, by increasing the areas for study, by greatly improving the facili- ties for athletics, and by maintaining a superlative teaching staff, and 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD of course at the same time sustaining a high degree of school spirit, this new Plan Shllllld enable T.C.S. to keep completely abreast with the times. Indeed, unless the fut11re holds in store some drastic deviation from the present trends, then the place of T.C.S. remains secure for at least another hundred years. We might ask ourselves one further question: What can T.C.S. do, as a school, to honour the Centennial of Canada? Many groups, o1'gz111izations. societies and municipalities across the country have begun lu organize projects of one kind or another that they are working on to complete by 1967. Some are sponsoring contests, some are building hockey arenas, some are bea11tifying towns, but everybody seems sparked by a zeal to do something special for Canada's birthday. We are isolated from the mainstream of public opinion, and have perhaps not become conscious of this national fervourg but this is no reason why we should 11ot become a part of it. T.C.S. too must find a project to honour Ca- nada's Centennial. For we have consistently played such a vital role in national affairs that Canada's Centennial is just as important to us as our own. What are we to do? Already the school is sponsoring a National History Project under the leadership of Mr. Hodgetts. But what are the boys themselves to do? Some have suggested an exchange of students with an American or a Quebec schoolg others have proposed a national round-robin athletic tournament, in which all of the country's Inde- pendent Schools would participateg still others have suggested a clean-up project for slum areas in Toronto or even Port Hope. All these and the many more put forward are feasible projects for the School to adopt. Sometime, before the year is out, a decision must be made, so that the boys of the School can begin to work together to achieve a common goal. But whatever decision is made, and whatever specific project the School adopts, one long-range aim must take precedence over all others: the sustained dedication to keep up the high standard we have achieved in the past, by looking continually to the future. If T.C.S. continues to maintain the excellence of her first hundred years, then Canada, on her centennial, could ask for nothing better. -J.A.W.

CHAPLAlN'S REMARKS The word "liturgy" is one which you are apt to hear occasionally to-day. If you moved in the right circles you would hear it very fre- quently. It's a theological word. Like so many theological words it has a Greek root. The word has an almost philanthropical association. When an ancient Greek performed some public work for the benefit of others it was called a liturgy. He may have built a harbour to increase the trade of the city. He may have put up an arena for the public's en- joyment of the sports. Such actions were liturgies, public works per- formed for the benefit of others who could not do the Works them- se ves. When the early Christian preachers were searching for a word to help them explain the meaning and significance of the death of Christ to their Greek audiences they lighted upon the word liturgy. The death of Christ was "for men", in His dying Christ had done something for men which they could not do for themselves. He had set them right with God. When the early Christians sought for a word which would explain the meaning behind their worship they also seized upon the word liturgy as best serving their purposes. The Church's worship was an act performed by a few which benefited many or which was done for many, for the whole created world. The whole creation owes worship to God, the Christians in their worship were performing a liturgy for many. And so there was a compulsion about worship. It was a job to be done, an absolutely necessary job. The early Christians approached worship with the same vitality, the Same urgency with which one would approach a job on which his livelihood depended. Well, there's no sense in labouring the point. The fact is that we have, on the whole, lost this sense of liturgy. There is nothing more vital to the Church to-day or to Chapel at T.C.S. than the recapturing this primitive sense of liturgy, of the importance, the vitality, the compulsion of worship. One would hope that this can be done short of 6 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD compelling people to worship. I think that Chapel would takenon a new meaning if we were to look upon it as a job to be done, a liturgy to he peri'ormed and performed well. It' this is to happen then liturgy, the official rites, words, and forms ol' worship must be reformed. We must have a living language which speaks to the people involved. The hymns, psalms, words, must speak of real concerns, not imposed concerns. Timeless values, concepts, and truths do not have to be imprisoned in time-worn, anachronistic lan- guage and words and practises. I would hazard the guess that the early Christians would feel more at home in our dining hall than they would in the Chapel. The early Eucharist was a meal, not a Church service. It was a pot-luck supper. I don't propose that we sell the chapel or turn it into a second gym- nasium while we adjourn to the dining hall. But we must find new forms and new vehicles of expression within the Chapel. In a school like T.C.S. we have need for experiment. We should have the freedom of variation, the freedom to enrich and to cut away. We need to increase the congregation's participation in what goes on. And we will experiment. But we must be patient. We don't need a bulldozer to knock everything down. In our concern for reform and revitalization we must be certain that we don't throw the baby out with the bath water. -B.J.B. CAROL SERVICE, 1965 Although the evening of December 12 was cold, rainy and icy, and we consequently had the smallest congregation visiting in many years, the Carol Service of 1965 was said to be the best in twenty years. The service started with the traditional "Adeste Fideles" and a TIIE MEMORIAL CHAPEL --Millard TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 7 reading by Chris Archibald of Boulden House. Mr. Cohu and the choir had for weeks been preparing the carols for the service, among which were "Shepherds Awake", "The Holly and The Ivy", to which the trebles and the altos sang a two part harmony, and "The Angels and the Shep- herds" as well as many others. All of these songs were sung exquisitely by the Choir under Mr. Cohu's skilled direction. This year there were more solos than in previous years. John Ryrie provided a worthy solo in "God Rest You Merry Gentlemen" while the choir provided a background harmony, and Peter Grant distinguished himself as a soloist in "What Child is This?", while the choir sang the chorus. The part of the king in "Good King Wenceslas" this year was tackled by Jim Sedgewick, and the page was Christopher Newell. All solos were done superbly, and it was noticed that they drew many astonished glances from the congregation below in the nave of the chape . One could not leave out "Masters in This Hall" when conducting a carol service, and Mr. Cohu made sure that this year was no exception to the rule. Although this carol is of Old French origin, its tune and lyrics make it a traditional must for a boarding school. The solos were sung by Bruce Kennedy, Philip Jackson, Errick Willis, Chris Currelly, Mike Marshall and Stuart Chubb. In addition to the year-by-year works sung by the Choir, there was suitably added a Hans Christian Andersen carol, "Child Jesus Came to Earth", which was performed by the trebles. With the singing of the traditional hymns "The First Nowell", "Once in Royal David's City". and all the others, the service came to a close with the stirring notes of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing". As well as the Christmas music sung by the Choir, there were Bible readings done by John Wootton. Ron Pearson, David Esdaile and the Head Prefect, Jim Binch. Mr. Scott ended the reading with the story of St. John imparting the mystery of the incarnation. Owing to weather conditions, as I have already mentioned, the congregation was the smallest in a great many years. However, this factor did not detract in any way from the beauty and Christmas spirit which accompany this very moving service, and Mr. Cohu for days afterwards was receiving well-deserved congratulations. Mr. Cohu and all the members of the Choir must be credited for, and heartily con- gratulated on an outstanding service and contribution to the religious life of the school. especially at Christmas time. -Chris Currelly. Head Choir Boy THE CHOIR GOES TO MONTREAL It was an odd assortment of people that boarded the 11:30 train to Montreal at the Port Hope station on Saturday morning, March 12th. One group was made up of the high-spirited Jim Roberts Fan Club, off to see their hero play. The other group travelling to Montreal on the same train was the Choir from T.C.S., on their way to sing at the Church of St. James the Apostle on Sunday morning. The trip to Montreal passed without mishap, and the boys were met at Central Station at 4:30 by Mrs. Lionel Kent and other members of the Montreal Ladies Guild. Soon the Choir were ushered off to their respective places of lodging and then were shown the sights of Montreal by their hosts. Saturday evening, entertainment was provided for both young and 32 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD old. The lionlden Ilouse boys were taken to the Forum, courtesy of Mr. Von llarrington, to watch Montreal run roughshod over Detroit, 4-1. .lim llolierts tickled the fancy of the Port Hope contingent as he banged two goals past Roger Crozier. The Senior School choir found itself at the home of Mrs. R. H. Smith and were royally treated there. The success of this party speaks for itself, since eight of the girls Who were there subsequently came to the School Dance on April lst. Our sincere thanks are extended to the Montreal parents for the fine hos- pitality which they provided for us. On Sunday morning we waded our way through a fresh blanket of snow to the Church in time for a 9:45 practice, and then the service itself which took place at 11:00 a.m. The Choir processed to the hymn "Praise to the Lord", which was followed by the introit, Henry G. Ley's "Almighty God". The basic order of service was that of Morning Prayer, consisting of the Venite, the Stanford Te Deum and then the Benedictus, intermingled with the two lessons read by Mr. Scott and Chris Currelly, the Head Choir Boy. Stuart Chubb provided an excellent solo in the anthem "O Gladsome Light" by E. H. Thiman. After the school hymn, the sermon by Reverend Hilchey, the rector of St. James', and the offer- tory hymn "Come ye Faithful, raise the anthem", the service came to a close while the choir recessed to the hymn, "Thy Hand O God has guided". After the service the boys returned to the homes of their hosts until 4:30, when we again assembled at the station, and were waved off bv Mrs. Kent, as we headed back to Port Hope. The sincere gratitude of the whole choir is expressed to Mrs. Kent, Mrs. Smith. Mr. Harrington and all the other Montreal people who made the weekend the surpassing success that it was. Mr. Cohu and the Choir are to be heartily congratulated for their fine performance in which they so ably represented the School. Compliments are still pouring in from Montreal. The fine memories which we all have of that weekend are a true testament to how indeed successful it was. -J.C.C.C.

Books for the library have been given by Mr. and Mrs. Philip Jack- son, Tim Ryley, Angus McKee, and Mrs. John Frisbee. Other gifts include a modern painting, given to the School by the painter himself, Mr. Gary Saunders, and a lamp for the new organ, given by the Headmaster of St. George's School. CHRISTMAS ENTERTAINMENT The Christmas festivities for 1965 began at the Christmas dinner in Osler Hall with the traditional dinner-time skit. We saw a slightly hammed up and altered version of the traditional "Christmas Carol", and heard from such notable personages as Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the three ghosts of Time. After the dinner, everyone rushed to the gymnasium to obtain front row seats for the entertainment that was to follow. The Concert Band got the show on the road by their rendition of "Melody March". They then executed a rousing medley called "Hootenany" in which the frenzied audience, deeply moved by the music, joined by clapping in time to "Down by the Riverside". The audience was then treated to a very amusing French skit presented by the French Club. The theme was "The French Week at T.C.S.", and We saw what would happen if everyone at T.C.S. were forced to speak French. The Senior School production, "Trial by Jury", was then presented. This is a one-act Gilbert and Sullivan musical comedy which was directed by Mr. Wilson with accompaniment on the piano by Mr. Prower. The play concerns a breach-of-promise suit in which the defendant fMike Marshall! is involved with two women. No one can decide what should 10 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD happen and so the judge QJohn Ryrieb marries the plaintiff fPat Shan-pol. This cast was supported by Charlie Barrett, the comical usher, llcrbie Kennedy, the robust lawyer, and Dave Esdaile, the Chairman of the ,lui-uv, as well as an array of jurymen and members of the public. livorvone enjoyed this light-hearted comedy, and the cast are to be coiigralulatecl on their excellent performance. After a brief intermission, the audience returned to their seats for the highlight of every Christmas entertainment, "The J. S. Pantomime". This ,vear's play was entitled: "Charlie's Castle". This unparalleled epic ot' song, dance, and humour, directed and written by Mr. Burns, Was a rollicking' combination of several notable smash hits of the past fe.g. llamelot, and My Square Ladyl. The entire evening was thoroughly enjoyable and everyone who contributed to it is to be heartily congratulated. -G. R. Strathy, VA PAT MOSS REVISITED On a stormy January Saturday, the twelve boys who attended the Pat Moss Camp this summer revisited the school on a mission of terror. Things seemed to pass peacefully enough at first, while the boys 'cased the joint'. Slipping nonchalantly from hockey game to basketball court, from outdoor rink to swimming pool. and then to the shooting range, they soon had the system 'beat'. After a movie downtown and a night in the Old Boys' room, they were ready to make their move. As the sun rose in the eastern sky, twelve dark silhouettes armed to the teeth with pillows, crept stealthily into the unsuspecting Top Dorm Brent. Leaving a wake of devastation and terror, the pyjama-clad squad then moved on to the flat. Pillows, blankets, and screams of anguish filled the air. Nobody lay idly in bed that morning! An extra table had to be set at voluntary breakfast, proving that boys are much more efficient than bells. But the hours flew by, and soon it was time to catch the train back to Toronto, back to reality for these twelve ovs. The Pat Moss group fitted into the T.C.S. crowd amazingly easily. I hope that the School might someday be able to afford to sponsor a few of these boys by bursary, so that as students at the School they could instil in it some of the life and vitality with which they so im- pressed us, and make its society a little more representative of the Ca- nadian people. Their visit will not soon be forgotten. -H. B. Kennedy, VIB PANCAKE TOSS The Pancake Toss is one of those great traditional events at T.C.S. Everyone C well, almost everyonel looks forward to it each year to pro- vide some nice clean fun on Shrove Tuesday, just before Lent settles down for its long stay. The object of the Pancake Toss is to obtain the largest portion of a putty 'pancake' which is thrown into the air. To achieve this aim, most any method is used, ranging from subtle strategy and tactics to brute force and barbarism. One person from each form is chosen to represent his classmates in this event. It might seem ridiculous to an outsider, but we at T.C.S. all know that this event provides a chance to uphold the honour of a form as well as a chance to continue a great tradition. And as if these glories weren't enough, it even provides another slightly more practical bene- fit lnamely a five-dollar prizej for the winner. 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCIIOOL RECORD 11 I, myself, as a contestant, had some reservations about going into it at first, but I'm looking forward to it next year Cproviding someone else is in itj. Actually, I was so severely squashed in this year's fray that I may even enter the contest next year . . . as the pancake! The winner of this year's Pancake Toss was Peter Vaisler of III 2. -Philip Murton, Participant THE LASER 3-D photographs, sending people from place to place in a light beam, illuminating the moon from earth, these were some of the wilder uses of the LASER beam talked about by Mr. Smiley, representative of the Bell Telephone Company of Canada Ltd. In his fascinating lec- ture on a Tuesday afternoon in early March, Mr. Smiley lectured to the school in the gym on many aspects of the LASER. The many uses of the LASER that Mr. Smiley outlined were amazing at least, and cer- tainly opened a new field of science to most of the audience. Mr. Smiley started off by giving a description of the various kinds of LASER and how each was made, he then went into the comparative values and uses of each different model: the RUBY LASER - mainly for cutting and drilling, and the GAS LASER - fthe type Bell Tele- phone is most interested inj, for communications. Delving deeper still in the field of LASER communications, Mr. Smiley related the advantages of using LASER beams in the sending of messages, long distance calls, and other manner of information from city to city. Approximately 1,000,000 times as many calls could be transmitted by a LASER beam about four inches in diameter as are presently being transmitted on radio waves and by wire at the present time, due to the amazing intensity of a beam such as described above. Then came one of the most graphic demonstrations ever given in any talk at T.C.S.! Using a LASER, Mr. Smiley sent, on a beam of light six feet long, a tape recorded piece of music which was received by a light metre and turned back into sound. If the beam was cut off. the music stopped, a fact which was ably demonstrated by Hunter Mac- Donald, who fearlessly thrust his hand twixt source and receiver. Much to his delight, the music stopped, and perhaps to his even greater de- light, his hand remained whole. Following Mr. Smiley's lecture there was a lengthy question period lperhaps owing to the fact that the lecture was using class time. but more likely because of the intense interest raised by Mr. Smiley about FIND YOURSELF THE BOYS THE TEA DANCE -DUSIHH 12 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the subjectl. The questions ranged over every conceivable use of the LASER, and Mr. Smiley's answers were lucid and comprehensive. ln summary, this is but a resume of the content of the lecture, containing but the surface of the sea of information given to the school by Mr. Smiley. The talk was enjoyed by all, and most left with the impression of being very knowledgeable on the subject of LASER - our thanks to Mr. Smiley and the Bell System of Canada for a most enlightening and interesting lecture. -J. K. Carsley, IVA OUR MAN IN INDIA Beresford Miller One of the most familiar names around the school is that of Beresford Miller, he lives in India and we support him, but that's about all we know about him. Here is a little bit more. Beresford is eleven years old - the typical boy with big eyes and a big smile and big troubles in arithmetic Ito put it bluntly, he hates the subjectj. Apart from this, however, he is a pretty sharp cookie in school, especially in English, where he is at the top of his form. He enjoys soccer a great deal and is a nifty little boxer. The Kalimpong Homes, his school, is more like a town than a school. It is situated in a valley among the foothills of the Himalayas and is equipped with everything from a small farm to a big chapel. Like T.C.S., it has a library Ctwo in factl, a tuck shop, a school maga- zine, and a Cadet Corps. However, unlike T.C.S., it is "co-educational". There are more than seven hundred boys and girls of all ages from all over India: Hindus and Sikkims, Moslems and Christians, different colours, different beliefs, all together in one happy community. But the Kalimpong Homes are not always happy. India is a country riddled with famine and political unrest. In 1965, the school's deficit was 316,000 and it is growing larger all the time. The school needs every penny it can get just to stay alive! T.C.S. on the other hand is a rich school, full of rich people. It is the least We can do to give a little towards helping the millions of people in the world who wake up in the morning and wonder if they will be able to find anything to eat to-day. Again I say it is the LEAST we can do. -Henry Bull, Chairman, Fund Raising Committee BERESFORD MILLER -Self-Portrait TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 13 Club THE DRAMATICS SOCIETY President - Michael Marshall Is the Dramatics Society really serving its purpose? This is the question that probably came to mind last September, when Mr. Wilson and Mr. Gordon began to project this year's program. It was decided then that for the society to fulfil its purpose it must become a great deal more independent. As a result the club was given a grant from the school, and it was made clear that any extra expenses above the amount of four hundred and fifty dollars were to come only through the ideas and efforts of the society. This year we have produced two stage shows. At Christmas, we put on Gilbert and Sullivan's first musical, which is just one act, "Trial by Jury". This Easter we are putting on "The Gazebo" which, as I write this, is being rehearsed and performed in the next few weeks. In the last few years this double barreled attack from the Dramatics Society has not been attempted. Instead we have merely put on a large show at Easter, alternating a musical and a "straight" drama in order to probe the many talents that a school like this can have. All productions are staged on a collapsible platform - surrounded with hanging and set flats. This is erected and made ready for a show in about eight hours by the stage hands, who, contrary to rumour, do a great deal of work. Here is another phase of dramatics that is very often forgotten in any production, whether national or group. There are many people interested in dramatics who are not actors, and in things like stage hands, make-up, and properties Ccostumesl, these people can contribute. I feel that the club has had a good year, but now with a year's experience as to the ins and outs of a budget, an even greater future for the club could be in store. As the executive of the Debating Society turned over a new leaf last year, so too in this club a better arrangement might be obtained, if the actual President of the club were a Fifth Former. He would be able to devote more time for the planning of a program. The following year the President would become an advisory type of person spending only the time he could afford at executive meetings. I think that the head of the stage-hands and the head of the make-up should serve on the executive of the Dramatics Society in order to affiliate and unify dramatics within the school. At this point you would have four on the executive, and by adding a secretary, who would continue in his present capacity, and another member, who would help look after the books, and be in charge of any frightfully brilliant 14 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD money-making schemes, or interest-attracting projects, you would have the complete executive. Besides the executive, I feel a broader program would strengthen the position of the club in the school. To the Dramatics Society's ex- cursions to Toronto might be added monthly play readings, stage and set design work-shops, production and direction workshops, and even perhaps on a little grander scale, our own Invitational Drama Festival. I know that this past year these have been available in Toronto and so it is not something brand new. Dramatics is one of the more popular of our art forms here at school and should continue to become bigger and better. Finally I would like to thank Mr. Gordon and Mr. Wilson for their long hours of work which have made this year so successful. -Mike Marshall, President THE SENIOR POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB President - Peter Grant The S.P.S.C., from what I can discern, is an animate entity com- prised of individuals and has, because it has existed more than one year running, become one of the great intellectual bulwarks of the school. The Club is sometimes good and sometimes bad, but mostly just middling. The members are middlingly, mildly interested, the school is marginally middlingly interested in us, and thus we are faced with the dilemma of an elite club which is middlng, and as any political scien- tist will tell you Kas well as A. A. Milnel, a middling club just Won't do. Thus we, the members of the 1966 S.P.S.C., being of sound mind, and in full possession of our faculties fi.e. Mr. Kirkpatrick has gra- ciously represented the masters this yearj, determined and endeavoured to embark on some coherent, cogent, stimulating and profitable venture to create a truly dynamic club. After much ponderance we decided that a suitable theme would be, for our previously middling club, that of "The Middle Road", that is a series of discussions dedicated to delving into the government struc- tures, the external influences, the present trends, and the political philosophies of both the East ttheml and the West fusj, and endeavour- ing to establish some basis whereby the world might come closer to- gether through compromise. The present analysis has indicated that the West and the East are both headed toward Socialism. The Club folly expects to solve the World's problems by Speech Day, providing the chelsea buns and chocolate milk will hold out. llcalizing that most clubs working on an organized project must have a theme, we the S.P.C.S. determined to revitalize the Club, the School. and the World, by holding a mock Security Council, the success oi which may be viewed by all and sundry on April 15th, 1966. ln general, the calibre of the speeches in this year's Club has been extremely high. and a great deal of interest has been stimulated in all the members. The f'lub has been the most successful in many years and Peter Grant is to be commended on his excellent leadership. This is the true Inner-Sanctum of today's active intellectual! -David Pollock, Secretary TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD 15 THE JUNIOR POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB President - Robert Cawley The Junior Political Science Club was formed to give Third and Fourth Formers a chance to learn more about world affairs, and to prepare them for membership in the illustrious Senior Political Science Club. The members are elected on the basis of a vote, a majority of 7512 being required for admittance. The membership usually runs about eighteen people. This year we have members from such places as Jamaica, Nassau, Mexico, Edmonton, and even Port Hope. The club itself is run and controlled by the members, along with an honorary president from the staff who acts on an advisory level. The president and secretary are Fourth Formers, and the treasurer is from Third Form. The president this year is Robert Cawley, the secretary Ron Pearson, and the treasurer Fred Beck. The honorary president is Mr. Godfrey. During the year each member gives at least one speech. Our main theme is the United States and its effects at home and abroad. So far the topics have ranged from the Los Angeles riots to the threats of communism in South-east Asia. We do not, however, always stick to our theme. In the first part of the year four members spoke on the platforms of the major parties in our own recent Canadian election. We feel that this club is fulfilling its purpose well, and is giving all its members a clearer insight into world affairs, as well as a keener palate for chocolate milk and Chelsea buns! -Ron Pearson, Secretary THE FRENCH CLUB President - Kevin Haffey Once again this year, Le Cercle Francais, in all its glory, stands out as a bastion of culture and 'esprit de corps', bubbling over with gallic vivacity and 'joie de vivre' against the framework of today's dull, Anglo-Saxon society at T.C.S. Under the guiding hand of M. Bishop and the controlling influence of the President, K. C. Haffey, a famous supporter of that foreign language, and secretary Richard Heybroek, the club has reached new heights in its search for its goal - the pro- motion among its members of fluency, fun, and some measure of insight into the habits, customs, and manners of the French. As usual, at Christmas time, the club put on a witty, irreverent, and light production for the benefit of the school. As usual, it was quite a success, this year the title being The French Week at T.C.S. In it was a fanciful, if not completely accurate, representation of what would happen if we took to the habit of having English spoken one week and French the next. After many meetings and practices, the final result was extremely humorous tat least we thought it wash and it certainly tickled the funnybone of the audience, if not all the masters. The impression that most of the school has is that. after the Christmas entertainment, the French club ceases to function, but as the French say: "Ils ont tort." As of late, the meetings have con- sisted mainly of quasi-debates, during which two intrepid members battle it out to prove their point - in French. After this strenuous. logical and linguistic exercise, which never fails to stimulate all pre- 16 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD sent, the club adjourns for refreshments and perhaps to listen to Hplusieurs chansons de Francoise Hardy." In short, the club is made up of a considerable cross-section of the school, and it provides an enjoyable hour each Sunday night for those who are interested in learning something about the French way of life and generally having a good time in another language. The club, of course. would not be possible without the supervision of Mr. Bishop, without his service as organizer and "dictionnaire", the club would simply cease to function - the club's heartiest thanks are extended to him. Le Cercle Francais, pour finir, continuera, sans doute, dans la tradition de ceux qui l'ont precede. -John Carsley, Member THE SCIENCE CLUB C0-Presidents - Richard Heybroek, Michael Sketch The aim of the Science Club this year has been to stimulate interest by broadening the range of activities. This policy has had some success, largely owing to the more varied and deeper interests of the members themselves. The improvement, however, is striking. The club room, in the basement of the classroom block, is packed with submarines, T.V.'s, radios, rocket launch panels, intercoms and dissecting instruments, raucous with miniature gasoline engines and short-wave static, reeking of formalin and castor oil. Don't put hand on the radiator, the cat's drying out there: watch your fingers on that T.V., high voltage. The picture is lively here, and equally so in the Chemistry and Physics de- partments, where the test equipment is on loan almost continuously. The high point thus far seems to have been the club trip to Eldor- ado, the local Radium and Uranium refining company. It was fortunate that this company, one of the few such open to the public, was so close to us. The tour itself was fascinating, and the guides did a wonderful job of explaining the complex and unusual processes encountered in this type of operation. This, together with the vaguely James Bond atmos- phere, made the visit a success. The problem now lies in preventing the rest of the year from falling into anticlimax. The large number of active members and the depth of interest make this year, potentially, the best for some time past. In fact no matter what happens, this year has been and will have been one of interest and enjoyment for all involved. -Richard Heybroek, Co-President THE CONCERT BAND President - Andy Barnard For three years now the Concert Band has existed in its very minor role in school life. For three years its members have hidden under the Chapel on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, providing that nothing interferes. And should something interfere, as it does bi-weekly during Lent term. then those who do come practice anyway, functioning as best they can, often as quintets, quartets or trios. The Band's history is not brilliant, and yet little more can be expected, considering the con- ditions under which it exists. For three years now it has performed twice annually and provided TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 17 rhythm for Boulden House club swingers, a very pathetic purpose in- deed and one hardly conducive to Band spirit. It needs more concerts and more all-round consideration before it will begin to function as intended. Yet all this will have to wait. The school must be enlarged before the Band can hope for success. And then I hope it will be granted the opportunity for success. Music, of all kinds, badly needs an outlet in this school. -Andy Barnard. President THE CAMERA CLUB President - Michael Dustan That obscure organization known as the Camera Club gained a new lease on life this year in the good hands of Mr. Moisdon. Himself an avid photographer, although somewhat new to darkroom work, Mr. Moisdon went at the job of organizing the club with a will. As a result, the club now has thirteen members, far more than the darkroom has space for, and all are enthusiastic. The club's annual photography competition has brought out the best work by several members, and some of the output is very good indeed. In spite of being little known and being in rather cramped quarters, the club is flourishing surprising- ly well. There is a constant demand for pictures for "The Record", and so far the camera club has kept a supply coming. -Mike Dustan, President CHESS This year, chess at T.C.S. has been greeted with much greater enthusiasm than before. As in previous years, the year commenced with an open school competition in which all those interested were allowed and encouraged to participate. After many preliminary rounds, the field of contestants was narrowed to four boys: Peter Crossley, Jon Stobie, Alan Todd and Gordon Williams. From these, Gordon Williams emerged victor over last year's winner, Peter Crossley, in a close two out of three match. The second Little Big Four chess competition was held once again this year at U.C.C. From the resulting round-robin match, our team, comprised of Crossley, Todd and Williams, improved slightly over last year to nab third place. The honours fell to U.C.C. for first place and Ridley for second. This was good experience and great fun for the three who went to participate. We wish to express our gratitude to Mr. A. D. Corbett for his spirited aid in this year's tournament. -Gord Williams.

Bishop, Esq. 26 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD C entennial Section A Forum Forums are nothing new to an institution such as T.C.S.g virtually every day a good, spirited discussion rumbles forth from some room or another around the school. Perhaps the discussion is of question- able value, perhaps it is stimulating and opens a few people's eyes to the other side of the argument. In any case, this form of discussion is surely one of the most indispensable keys to the development of open, inquisitive minds. Without continuous debate and argument the climate of opinion becomes stagnant and excessively dogmatic. To actually organize such a discussion is an entirely different matter than to merely HAVE one. To set a subject, pick a group of individuals, and find available time is an arduous task, and the results are often disappointing. Spontaneous unrestricted argument is usually much more productive. The results of this forum, which took place on Sunday, March 25th, 1966, may or may not appear to contradict this proposition. The participants, Messrs. Humble and Lawson, Reverend Baker and a distinguished array of experts, Andy Barnard, David Pol- lock, George Strathy, John Carsley and David Camp, with Moderator Peter Grant, threw the topic of teenagers around for about an hour and twenty minutes - all of which was taped and later typed and edited fat considerable time and effort by certain obliging typistsl. The dis- cussion by no means reflected a conformity of thought, yet all seemed to take great pains to achieve some sort of consensus. 'l'he purpose of this forum was simply to test the reaction of some members ot' the school to changing values and trends of which they are an unavoidable part. In its present form it is virtually intact. Since this is the first time something of this nature has been attempted, we ask you to bear with any weaknesses that may occur in either the thought or style of the ideas expressed. -P.G.B.G. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 27 The Teenager in Modern Society Moderator: Now, it seems to me what we should establish first are the chief characteristics of a teenager. This is the line we can draw that runs through all teenagers: and by teenagers I mean the period of transition between childhood and adulthood. Okay George - Strathy: Well I think the one adjective that you can use, if you're talking about teenagers as a whole, I think generally in this period of transition teenagers are uncertain. They don't really know where they're going and they're not su1'e how to get there. They're not sure of themselves, they don't have their basic grounding yet. Mr. Humble: This seems to me a pretty important facet of life if the adult world can provide some security in a period of transition where the young person can feel secure enough and yet experiment and develop his own individualism. I think this is a good comment on our own institution here that we must have some form of stability, a recog- nizable society within which the individual can grow. And it seems to me the criticism of our modern society for teenagers who are going to excess is where there are none of these factors operating, where the young person hasn't a sense of security. You can call it security in the home or security within the framework of his own contempor- aries, but this would seem to me one of the important factors, and I wonder if this is somethiing that all the young people here today feel strongly about. Rev. Baker: One of the adjectives that are supposed to charac- terize teenagers is rejection, rejection of authorities. I think that young people are looking for authority, I think they often find it in their own groups. They give us the impression of having rejected traditional authorities. I wonder if this rejection isn't more a case of these traditional authorities - parents, for instance - abdicating their responsibilities, rather than the teenager actually rejecting the authority. Many parents just withdraw - they can't tell the kid what to do - he's got to make his own mind up. So this may look like rejection when in fact it is the adult world abdicating its responsibili- ties to the young person. Mr. Lawson: Isn't it possibly too, a source of the bitterness in a lot of the teenagers today - the acceptance of the older generation with their demand for independence and responsibility and this sort of thing, resulting in their discovery, many of them who have been given the choice to make up their own minds how they will run their own affairs, what they will believe in, to find that it isn't as much fun as they had hoped it would be. And there's a certain bitterness against the older generation for not having given a more, as Mr. Humble was saying, a more adequate lead if not a longer train of authority to do this, to do that, believe in this, believe in that, but at least a greater direction. I noticed this for example in the abdicaton of the home as a center of social life with the older generation participating, and of the school becoming a huge mass in which the individual cannot feel as im- portant, as significant as he could. Moderator: Perhaps the teenager is finding that adolescence, al- though it carries with it more freedom, the adolescent is soon finding that this freedom is not the kind he looked forward to in his childhood, that it's freedom of an entirely different nature involving responsibili- 28 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ties to l1is lellow 1112111 which he ca11not abdicate without turning within himself. Rey. Baker: Freedom is a very heavy burden to bear. It always looks lllllL'll better XVIIQII you don't think you have it. If you have i-t you find such il tremendous responsibility involved that you'd just as SUUII IIUI have it Mr. Lawson: Perhaps a lot of intolerance of certain things that we see IIIIIUIIALISI teenagers is the rebellion against the excessive tolerance ot' the older generation for certain untested new ways. Rev. Baker: And this excessive tolerance may be what I talked earlier about, you know, an abdication of responsibility. I think the adult world refuses the set standards, either in their own behaviour or i11 the young people'sg and who can blame the young people if they then reject the 11on-standards of the older generation? Moderator: Have the experts anything to say about this? Barnard: Isn't it a bit of an unset of a balance that as you reach the adolescent era you're given privileges and you're given responsibili- ties and when either of those are lacking then trouble is bound to arise? When yo11're given privileges and don't have to accept the responsibili- ties for them, as Mr. Lawson pointed out, or when you're given respon- sibilities and yet aren't allowed the privileges. you feel cramped and are liable to swing to the other extreme. and itis mainly an upset of this balance that should come but doesn't. Pollock: I think in addition to this. referring back to the bitterness that Mr. Lawson was talking about. that perhaps the period of the teenager in this tra11sition is a period where he undergoes the greatest change between his youthful idealism and seeing in reality just what in fact can be done in the inhibitions of the world around him which he's planning to go into. I think now it's another characteristic of the teenager in this fight within himself, this idealismg I guess it's common to many of us, and then seeing what are, more or less, the limitations of what can be done. Moderator: Do you feel the teenager should be encouraged at an early age to accept responsibility and to relinquish his claim to a world of fantasy? Pollock: I would say yes: I think that once you've stepped over the initial stage of realizing that you had at one time been living in a world of fantasy. so to speak, where everything was controlled for you by others, that then you mav again rise up and become again idealistic i11 perhaps a different sense. realizing the responsibility, say like Dag Ilammarskjoldz someone who. altho11gh realizing the limitations, will still strive to do what can be done, whatever is possible. Rev. Baker: Whe11 you say the teenager begins from an idealism. do you niean a fantasy world? I used to think of idealism in terms of buildiiig 11 brave 11ew world, going out to conquer the world, and dream- ing cliw-aiwis and seeing visions and this sort of thing rather than living in a l':111t.1sy world. Pollock: Well. I think there are two aspects of this. I think there can be ll iifriwoii who does live in a fantasy world and never recognizes that sonic oi' his dreams were only dreams. At the same time there can. be pf-oiilo who will have their dreams and all their life try to attain their ilreains. but 1113 the same time they will realize their own limita- tions. It is this 111-riod of the teenager I think where you for the first TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 29 time confront the certain limitations you're going to encounter. Rev. Baker: One of the things that, well I wouldn't say upsets me, but for the lack of a better word, upsets me, is the lack of idealism in many teenagers. They just want security. They just want good marks and a good job and they're not really out to dream dreams and see visions. They're not really out to set the world on fire. They want security, they want insurance, they want a nice certain future. Where's the idealism of youth if this is the case? Strathy: This materialistic view of teenagers is not necessarily their own view. It's being forced upon them more and more by the adult world and by things such as the status symbol as we were sayingg it's forced upon him that the only way to happiness is through success and that money is the way to success and happiness, and you can't get anywhere unless you've got a good education, and this sort of thing, and it's all being forced upon him, and so they're not really dreaming dreams and thinking of conquering the world. They're thinking of getting a good salary and this sort of thing, and I think it's being forced upon them by the adult world. Rev. Baker: But George, if kids can so scathingly criticize the other values of the adult world, why can't they see through this phony success, the image that the adult world projects? Why can't they criticize it? Why can't they reject it the way they reject so many other values. I don't think it's forced upon people. I admit it's in the adult world, but teenagers reject so many values, rightly, of the adult world, why can't they reject this? Why do they have to be taken in on this particular one? Carsley: I think the reason they don't reject status symbols and money is because they're nice to have around. Mr. Humble: I think too that this is suggesting that there is a division between the teenager and adulthood or childhood. I think that this is true of the whole world generally. You don't find the majority of idealism in adults in the world, and you cannot hope to find in youth something quite different, some different pattern of behaviour from that you find in adults. Therefore it seems to me that it would be unrealistic to expect all young people to be supreme idealists, because they're going to be realists later on anyway, and this is merely a reflec- tion of their attitude, their estimate of contemporary society, the sort of world that they're going into and of which they will be a part. It seems to me that it's rather wrong to make this division and to sug- gest that to some degree teenagers are at fault, because this is a social phenomenon of which we are all a part, and it's never been made synon- ymous to the modern world any more than it was to any other period of time. However those that are idealists: I would feel very badly myself if those who had this attitude towards things had it destroyed by some new fabric in society that is changing the nature of human beings. This I think is the serious aspect of it, not that we'd expect all to be like John F. Kennedy, but that we should destroy the possibility of anyone being like our Kennedy's. Pollock: How would this be destroyed? Mr. Humble: Well, this is the question: Is it no longer possible for youth to maintain an idealism of this sort where they do want to discover new frontiers, to push back, in a sense, the frontiers of know- ledge and of social organization, make new discoveries in all these fields? Is our life now such that youth just shrugs its shoulders and says well, 30 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD what is the use, I don't need to do anything of this sort any longer. I have no creative impulse left, society has taken all of this away from me. lf this were so, then I think in our age of security we have a very serious problem to look at. Camp: I think that it's not that they need to search for these ideals, it's that the teenager realizes his potential and realizes he can't excel in some fields as Kennedy did in practically all. And then he quits and goes off into his own fields and sometimes he even goes below. Some idealists go to extremes and then quit under their own limita- tions. Rev. Baker: Well, I really feel that the teenager is a visionary, should be a visionary, a quality that we don't usually ascribe to teen- agers, to young people. That word "teenager" is a ghastly one. The young people possess an intolerance which is a good thing, a positive virtue - impatience. I mean this is part of the visionary, the impa- tience of the prophet for instance, with social conditions and this sort of thing. I do feel that the teenager is a visionary, is an idealist, and it's when we become older tha.t we start making our compromises with the world. we begin to see that you can't fight it all the time, and you give in and you make your compromise, but I think that this sort of compromise that I see many young people making means that they're old before their time, and I think this is a great loss to society. Moderator: Do you feel that the increasing pressures and conflicts on the teenager cause a sense of disillusionment and withdrawal from social commitments .. . and a loss of idealism perhaps? Strathy: How far is idealism going to get him? Ithink that maybe he's realizing, as Rev. Baker said, before his time, that the world isn't all milk and honeyg he's realizing that something is thrust upon him and that he's got to perhaps face the fact that idealism may be all very nice but that he can't get anywhere - I hate to say this - without success, without money! Mr. Lawson: This is not the teenager's fault in this case. I had the suspicion that the teenagers have always been the same, they've al- ways been idealistic, they've always been rebellious, they've always been highly critical. It's the adults who perhaps have set a different pattern or standard. Perhaps part of the bitterness that I was talking about before is that the adult world as far as the teenagers see it today has been too success-conscious. has been too realistic. has been too lacking in idealism, and that the teenager who has his idealism and rebellious- ness in him is embittered bv the fact that he isn't given the chance of encouragement to develop it and produce it before it is half-formed, and this is perhaps the failure of the adult world to provide him with the avenues to develop it while he has the guts in him to do so. in which case he's being told "If you're so idealistic, if you're so full of rebellion, then go ahead, try it out and see what you learn." And of course this is like saving, "There's a building: go into it and form the character of an institution" - as if that's possible - if 1t's a mud puddle. "Go in and n:uck around and make wonderful castles," but nothing much gets produced out of it. Barnard: ls one of these channels which you're suggesting, where we ought to let teenagers run free, in the educational line? Mr. Lawson: To some extent, because I know that the universities have -accepted and they are now beginning to question their rightness in doing so, and the schools too, the idea of: let the student come and TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 31 if he wants to learn, let him learn, and if he doesn't want to learn, too bad for him. So you have a huge class in a huge school and a huge uni- versity, huge lectures, and if the student fails it's his own fault. I know that there has been too wide a belief in this "come and get it" attitude in education. Rev. Baker: This is permissiveness run wild isn't it? Permissive education run wild? Mr. Lawson: This is being highly questioned now, there is a big revolution going on all through the schools. Moderator: Where do you feel adults should draw the line with regard to permissiveness in allowing the teenagers the freedom they want? Do you feel the teenagers would resent the adults more if they applied more disciplinary measures? Barnard: Well, I think again it's part of a lack of balance, if you're given a privilege and you have to accept the responsibilities with it, and if they don't go hand in hand, then your values are going to be warped. For instance if you want to start smoking when you're a teen- ager then you've got to accept the fact that you pay for the cigarettes, and if you start drinking then, all right, you pay for the drink and so forth like this: you can't be given all this by your parents and told, "Okay, go experiment," because you're not going to have the respon- sibility of pulling back on that experimentation, and it's not going to be the real thing: it's going to be a pleasure instead of a freedom. Pollock: Getting back to this "permissiveness" idea in education: surely healthy discussion in any field, discussion where people are inter- ested in getting at truths, in perhaps formulating their own values more, is never a bad thing. I know that when I came here for the first time that perhaps some of the things that are important to us as teenagers were to some degree clamped down: in the field of morality or religion, discussion seemed to be to a large extent curtailed, that at an Anglican school, when you come you can be given your religion if you want it. and sometimes when you had to get it. but as for real discussion and getting at the fundamentals and the things that are really important to you that the only place you'd get much of this would be perhaps dis- cussing things in small groups. I know in Sixth Form we break off into small groups from time to time discussing things and also perhaps to some extent in English class. But it seems that in this atmosphere at least, permissiveness is a thing which has been disregarded to a large extent in that there are certain things at school here that are just not considered right to discuss, and I think this is a very bad and harm- ful thing. Strathy: I think it's not only so much as in class but also outside class. I know very few times here when you've got really enough time to sit around and spend an hour talking about things. Almost every hour of every day is used up doing something, and if you're not work- ing, you're doing some sport or something, and I really find it hard to have an hour or two that you can just sit around and read a book or something without feeling guilty, that you should be doing something, or have a little discussion. And so it's not so much that you don't want to do it or that it's taboo, but it's just that you don't have the time. e Moderator: Then why, George, do some teenagers take great de- light in, say, dragging up and down the main streets of small towns? Strathy: Well, maybe this is an outlet, just to prove themselves, to prove that they've got Freedom, and they may think in their own 3,2 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE SECRETARY-GENERAL 9 il E Q MR. PRESIDENT 'wkf lain THE RUSSIAN DELEGATE "MY PEOPLE WOULD RATHER iw, 0 H 5 u FIGHT THAN SWITCH" ...ul A HVSSIAN PROPOSAL . . . AND FOUND OF LITTLE VALUE VONSIDERED THE SECURITY COUNCIL Camp TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 33 minds that they're doing this to rebel and to show that they're Big- shots, but they're just showing off. Perhaps they think it's more fun to do that than to think about themselves. Moderator: How do you think this sort of situation arises though, whereby these teenagers feel they must do this sort of thing in order to prove themselves? Strathy: I think this may be a bit of an exaggeration, I don't think it's a compulsion. It's hard to call this a compulsion, that they have to do it, but perhaps the-y're just showing off that they are now teenagers and that they've got their freedom and they're rebelling against everyone else. Mr. Lawson: This wouldn't be happening if it weren't for the fact that society has not given them healthier ways in which to express themselves, in which to show that they've got it, in which to make their mark. This is where many of us are most concerned about our whole educational system. Again, that it has been too much a mass education and that we have to fight this trend, and that education has to be a far more expensive thing than it has been, and that the community has to provide far more in the way of meaningful activity where a person can feel he matters. I think all this type of activity you read about in Life was offered, I would imagine, very much by young people who haven't been made to believe, haven't been given the opportunity to believe, that other activities offered to them or outlets offered to them are really worth going out at, and perhaps it's because we've been too traditional in the type of outlet we've allowed. Perhaps the traditional methods havenit been good enough and we've got to create, well, possibly even coming on to sports, perhaps the reason the automobile has become so exciting and popular and fewer and fewer people have wanted to play on teams at the high schools - this seems to have been happening - is because not a big enough programme has been provided for a wide enough participation. Mr. Humble: I'd like to revert again to what George said about lack of time to do the things that are felt to be valuable. It's very dif- ficult, for example, to discuss generally all teenagers because we've got a society of young people whose intelligence level won't take them much beyond the Grade 8 level of education and, I mean, for that group, in Russia, for example, where Laurens van der Post made a very extensive survey a few years ago, they were organizing the state where they had nothing to do in terms of individual effort. Everything was collective. The young group would go off and help with the harvest or they would spend their time doing this, that or the other, and all under super- vision, and this is not surely the sort of thing we would want. Although for that group in Russia, we would find it extremelv difficult to find alternatives, but in a society like ours here at T.C.S. surely we could give the alternatives because we have a group that are intelligent. alert, interested, dynamic. If we are filling now too much of their time with non-essentials and trivialities. then I think that perhaps something could and should be done to put first things first, to give our young people here the sort of opportunities that young people got, say in the Fifth Century BC., when the greatest flowering of the human spirit ever took place, and their View of education was simply that you would give young people a vision of the things that were great and train the mind to think to their full capacity, and as a result of this two-pronged attack on education, this was a wonderful period. Whether we have lost sight 34 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD of education. is a matter of considerable concern and it seems to me here at 'l'.t'.S. we have a great opportunity in terms of liberty of thought: it seems to me that this is most importantg the Greeks be- lieved in it. that you must have the opportunity to develop your own ideas and it' we fail to do this, if we are too authoritarian, this surely is a danger to our society. The Greeks realized the importance of this but they couldn't control what had happened as a result of this, and this is the danger to any settled society. They found immediately the questioning of all values, political, philosophical, and everything else, but if you are going to get young people and give them the opportunity to think. then I think we have to accept the results of that thought, because they are the moulders of a new society, in a sense, and I think that this is terribly important that the flowering of the spirit and the mind should be untrampled as long, of course, as within the frame of it, it can operate and develop within a secure situation. Mr. Lawson: There is always in the great period of the Fifth century, in the greatest growth in Greek life, the great period in the world, so far as I can see, of the flowering of the human spirit. there's always been an underlying, driving force, a reason that everybody of both generations wanted and were aiming for. What we need in our society, it seems to me, is something we all agree on that's needed, and to a child it's exciting: and to the Fifth Century people it was their city. Their city really mattered and was worth going out of your way for. It was a great spirit that started among them. Amongst the Romans and early Republicans it was the same sort of thing, a tre- mendous loyalty to the tradition and to their forefathers and a belief in them. They all lived it and when they lost it. they lost their great civilization with it. What I see as exciting now that can be developed, in many ways is being developed now, is the sudden realization that the great scientific outburst that we've had makes it conceivable to create a far better life for everybody, including the two-thirds of the population in the world who are suffering miserably. And that is the reason why the Peace Corps, for example, has provided this kind of outlet for idealistic and vigorously critical minds. And this has been only an embryo of the sort of thing that is necessary. I notice that our boys who go out and help at the ski camp in the summer get a bigger kick out of that than any team they ever played on or anything else they ever did, that's certainly the way they expressed it to me after doing so. So that young people are no longer anxious to do things because thcy're healthy activities that keep them busy: they are con- stantly wanting to do something significantg and the education, the science, the speed of education have made it possible for them to take greater responsibility than they could at an earlier period. I think this is true, don't you agree, Mr. Humble? Mr. Humble: I feel very strongly about this because you can see what's happening in Russia with the inability to express the individu- ality. Yet the vision you pick up from a man like Laurens van der Post, who is a most obiective observer of what he sees, is the tremendous vision, very like the Greek vision. Now whether we agree with it or not. the young people are imbued with this feeling of a greatness to come while they're living in pretty well miserable conditions now, but it's that in Vanada, we seem to lack. We have no great vision of what this country might be and yet we perhaps have as great an opportunity to feel this as any country had, that there is for young people a tre- mendous thing to be done here. What is the thing to be done here? TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 35 No one really points to it. And I feel there's a lack of inspiration, if you like. Perhaps the Peace Corps might provide it but there must be things within the Canadian framework, that as Canadians we feel are important, that would provide this stimulus to feeling an outlet. The ski camp summer, this is the sort of thing, but on a grand scale of a nation we need something that will inspire all the young people, that would give them a vision within which they could express themselves. Carsley: I think that what the teenager needs is what the Greeks had and what the Russians have in a way. It's a goal to work for. The Russians have worked for the betterment of the state and the Greeks worked for the betterment of the city-state, but the Western teenager today really doesn't have anything to work for. The greatness of their country - so what? They need some goal to work for. Rev. Baker: Working for the betterment of one's self isn't quite big enough . . . Carsley: You work for yourself, you make yourself into a success, to gain all sorts of material wealth. But the boys at the ski camp work for the betterment of others. That's their goal. It's only for ten days, but it works. Barnard: Well, it seems if we put Mr. Humble's and Mr. Lawson's opinions together then you've got to crumble all the institutions and all the buildings that we've built up. It seems that if individuals are to rise, then they can't have all their buildings sitting on top of them and that the departments of education and the churches and the corpora- tions are going to have to be crumbled or broken down into smaller areas, because a teenager can't thrive when just before entering all this he sees what he's got to go through. He's got to accept all these warped values, such as monetary success and a certain amount of ma- terial selfishness, in order to be able to get through these buildings and to strive for his own individuality, and by the time he's got through them he's probably become so warped that he no longer has any purpose as himself. He's only a part of something, and there's too long a gap for what you've got to go through to be yourself, and by the time you get there you haven't got a hope, and so these things have to fall and they're going to have to be broken into smaller gaps, smaller ways to get through from when you're an idealist. To be given a certain amount of realism and still have your idealism left. And I think it's these institutions that have got to go. Carsley: I think Andv's right: you can start off as an idealist but then you say to yourself, "Well, I can't make a mark as an idealist unless I'm a success, unless I have something to start off with," so you go to college and make your success and by the time you build this materialistic wealth and a great success and start to grow a little beer-belly your ideals have been warped on success and the fires of idealism have died out. Rev. Baker: Of course you can't have a runaway idealism or a runaway individualism This is the danger in permissive education . . . One of the things, surely, that is the basis of education is the idea that lessons can be learned from the past. Nobody wants to start discover- ing the wheel, or discovering electric power. We assume that some of the things of the past are worthwhile. It isn't simply that people are allowed to think anything they want for themselves, but society assumes that some of the things from the past are worth thinking, and it's not only that young people should be given complete freedom to think as 36 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD they want, but that they should be given something with which to think. llarnard: Do you really feel that freedom, in the way you're think- ing about it. in a runaway, rampant sort of fashion, can actually exist? llon't you feel that reality's going to clamp in anyway, and that super- imposing artificially is just warping the whole set-up? Rev. Baker: I think that it won't run away simply because you know other minds who will come in and say, "Now hold on thereg there are some things here that are of value." But I think that often the freedom of thought and the individualism that people seem to be groping for is a runaway kind of freedom, is a completely unrealistic kind of freedom. How far can it run? I mean, do you want each gen- eration to start over from scratch and discover the wheel and go up to Mt. Olympus and steal the fire and start the whole damn thing all over again? I can't really believe that any generation would want to do this. Barnard: Well, we have to re-orientate ourselves. We have to have a working knowledge of these basics before we can go anywhere. You have to, basically, go back to the wheel. You have to see why they wanted it. You don't have to go into a depth study and take millions of years to discover it again, but you still have to see why it was dis- covered and why it works, and after you have built up all this again you can add yourself to it, and then you'll go off in a new direction with something new, and if every generation did that you'd have a complete revitalization every time a person was born. With every generation it would be new, something fresh, but when you get this line of knowledge going through and you say, "Now, that part's perfectly all right - we'll add to this", then you're missing all sorts of directions, all sorts of pat- terns through this part that you've already assumed, and you have to go back. You have to do this or you're going to get stuck. Pollock: Surely this would involve the world becoming so spe- cialized that we would have long since passed the point when a person knows all there is to know about it. It would break individuals down into such specialized entities that, certainly, they'd be individuals and a very high specialist - but would this be very beneficial to themselves? Barnard: Obviously this isn't going to happen. People can't do this, but if they try to do this then they're making a conscious effort towards learning, and even though they cannot do it, the effort will still be there, they'll still have the foresight to see what is coming. But you can't just assume what's been behind youg and you're not going to have a whole group of specialists here. because people don't all have the potential to be specialists, they don't all have the potential to be intelli-- gent and a lot of them are going to follow you and other people, but you'll still have these groups and leaders that have bothered to go back it cirgiiii distance, and they're the ones that are going to make the society eat v. Mr. Humble: Are you saying, Andy. that one of the basic problems is that today there needs to be a re-examination of all the basis by which we live '.' That is. your philosophy of life, your relationship to society and so on - this has always been re-examined, and this particularly in our day, where religion for example, has developed even with theologians as sort of right and left wing, leaving these people as they never have been in 500 years, wondering what the basis of their own philosophv is. This is part of the problem that has come to the stage, where there TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 37 has been a re-examination of these things, and no one seems to be quite secure, and perhaps the teenager sees all this unrest and in a sense what I suppose you might say is the crumbling of the original fabric of society. The 19th Century didn't have to worry about this. Youth saw its place in the society and accepted it: but this is no longer true today and the tremendous push and change that is occurring almost daily now makes it, it seems to me, for young people, a very precarious world in which to live, in which to find roots, a thing that you finally believe in, because what you believe today, you suddenly find is uprooted tomorrow. Is this part of the basic problem? Barnard: Yes, I think teenagers can't see their place and it almost develops in a sort of panic that either leads them to the blind rebels or to the ultraconformists or hotrodders, and they've taken extremes be- cause there's no place for them, and so they've got to make a place. Moderator: Do you feel teenagers need something to believe in? Do you feel they need religion? Barnard: Religion obviously is extremely important. But it's got to be applied to the individual, not the individual to religion: the whole idea of packing people into one set mode of belief is ridiculous and harm- ful. Whereas religion is vital, it must stick on ideas. It can't be stuck on churches. Mr. Lawson: Andy, do you believe that corporate worship is a bad idea? Barnard: Well, it can be both harmful and beneficial. If corporate worship is partaken of because it is uniform or because it is corporate or because it's done in a crowd then it's harmful, but if the people can draw back from the Church, and if they're given a chance to think for themselves and say, "All right, this I agree with: and all right, let's do it together because I like it and he likes it. We're doing it because we both like it," and not to have this idea that "Oh, I'm in here: I have to do it" . . . if you both agree, if you're both sure in your own minds that this is what you want to do, then it's extremely beneficial. But if it's forced on you - No! Mr. Lawson: All our institutions, religious, political and economic and business and everything else have to take some form, and if people of Whatever age won't conform to at least some form of framework. imperfect though it's bound to be, there can't be any corporate activity that Works, and I think for all our individualism, our ideal of democracy. I don't think any of us has ever believed that much can be accomplished bv the individual alone if he sets all the rules for himself. The idea that "Well, a rule has been set, let's change it if it's a bad one: we'll get a movement going to change it, but let's go along with it while it's going so that we don't wreck everything." I think this applies to religion as it does to the laws of the land. Barnard: I think these limitations will come more naturally and that Vou shouldn't impose them. I can't picture a society composed of individuals. I don't think that's possible at all. But to say that that's going to be harmful if that ever happens and then to work to try to prevent this, is going in the wrong direction. It's not going to happen. so let's work to try to make it happen and get rid of the other extreme where everybody's conformed. Pollock: In the field of religion, do you not feel that it would be beneficial if you could thrash out, say, your viewpoints and the rules that you run your own life by, by the rules that someone else has thrashed 38 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD out and see if there's some common denominator - to see what the differences are, to see if there are basic differences, and generally not just to go into some institution and spend your time there because you're both in accord or because one person doesn't want to be there but has to he there, and the other person wants to be there and has to be there anyway - but to discuss it, to thrash things out more or less - do you think this is not beneficial? Camp: How many people get the opportunity to thrash things out? Pollock: Well is this not part of the problem? I think there are two problems I might throw out here. One: that in this age we're a very split world, a very split society and a split humanity on the one hand. Education is concerned very much with the scientific world and I guess in the last fifty years it's got away somewhat from the humani- ties to a large extent. But on the other hand I think that this is the great problem: to try to put the two together, to couple the scientific with the humanity: and that the insecurity we sometimes feel is a part of the split: that we've gone so far in science and have left so much undone in the realm of humanity - and perhaps we all feel a little bit warped. a little out of shape, and I think this is a very real problem with teenagers. Strathy: I agree with you, Dave: we were talking about the Greeks and Roman institutions and none of us has ever taken the time to won- der what the Greeks and Romans saw in their art and in their poetry and in their writing, and maybe none of us has examined this. and may- be if we did examine our own art and writing and this sort of thing. we might get a fuller idea of ourselves and of the past, and we might find out a lot more about ourselves and things we didn't realize before. And perhaps in ways education isn't giving us a chance to do this. nor is the world giving us a chance to think about ourselves as much as we should. Pollock: Do you think that perhaps this is the thing that the teenager is rebelling against? Strathy: I agree, I think that one of the big problems that is fac- the teenager is "What am I, what am I here to do. what can I do", and this is why everyone gets so much pleasure out of the Pat Moss camp, because they're really doing something and there's a point in life. This dragging we were talking about - maybe it's just a way of expressing themselves because they don't have any other way. Mr. Humble: Of course this isn't true just of the teenager: I think we're all in this boat. I'm two generations from you in that sense and yet it seems to me that adults are going through the same sort of tur- moil that youth is today. This ought to be a thing that binds us more fully together rather than creating a barrier, because wherever you look adults are quite unsure of the future. If we knew the direction even in education, for example. there is no one today who can point with certainty the direction that our education should be moving, because- we can't even visualize the sort of society we may have in twenty-five years. It may be an Aldous Huxley. It could conceivably be a George Orwell, but none of us believe that this is so: and yet there's a lurking possibility that forces may be beyond our control and I think this ought to be a thing that binds us all together in our quest for new ideas and our quest for new fundamental attitudes and so on. If we could make this in our education a sort of search together, realizing that no one has answers to these problems, we might come closer to getting them TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 39 and feel in the process that we're all working for a common objective. I don't feel that the teenager, the young person today, ought to feel that he is in a particularly invidious position, that he is more insecure than other people. I think this is typical of a sickness in society due to the changes that have occurred so rapidly. Camp: Just because the adult generation has no visible ideals to the teenagers, I don't think this is any reason why the teenagers should accept the adult more than they do now. I think the teenager abhors the adult because he has no visible ideals. The teenager really doesn't want to grow up to be an adult. He looks at the adult as a vegetable. I don't think he looks forward to the thought of growing up. It's not really that great to be an adult. There are no visible ideals once you're past being a teenager, the stage of experimenting . . . you're out there with nothing to do. Rev. Baker: Remember the line from the West Side Story when the manager of the candy store. the delicatessen, after the rumble, where one of the boys has been killed. said to the hoods that were in the story, "You know you're a lousy bunch. You're making a rotten world", and they replied to him, "Your generation has made it rotten." Moderator: .Well how, then, do the adults of today give the adults of tomorrow the idealism to pursue their goals with fervour. and yet at the same time the realism to face the inevitable conflicts of life? Pollock: Is it the adult's job to give the young people idealism, or does it come from another source? We have to ask ourselves this as well. Is it not that just being born, perhaps, an inquisitive animal, makes a child touch a stove for the first time and find that it's hot or do things unreasonably just because he's curious. Is idealism as you put it something which the adult should attempt to instill in todav's teen- ager or can idealism come from some other source, perhaps from life itself? Moderator: Will the child's first impression of life be not error. though? It seems to me that he needs someone to tell him that this is not the way it is, that in fact life is worth living, that there are goals worth striving for. When he encounters the cold, hard grim facts of reality he's going to be discouraged awfully quickly. If he has no one to set up ideals for him, wrong as they may be, dogmatic as they may be, then he is not going to face life with the vigour and the tenacity that he should. Pollock: This is quite true, that if he is, for instance. faced with reality then he tends to become discouraged. But on the other hand. if he goes on in a happy little world where everything's been explained to him beautifully, and all of a sudden he comes home one dav and he finds that babies don't come from underneath the cabbage leaf, he's going to be very disillusioned. To get back to the roots of the thing, I think that a child can be very disillusioned if he's been led to believe something, and then when he becomes a teenager all of a sudden he finds out perhaps this is something that the adult had adopted to make himself secure . . . and in fact wasn't necessarily a truth but was part of the weakness of people, perhaps that they need something to cling to. I agree with you that it is a problem so to speak, pitting someone loosely against reality. On the other hand, I think it's a very great danger tying a person up in the accepted values and the accepted ex- planations of everything without letting him, perhaps, go at it for him- se f. 40 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Moderator: Well, this is the problem then: to give the teenager the balance between an appreciation of life and an acceptance of the society. Pollock: Perhaps a balance between his own experience and other peoples experience. Camp: I think the teenager really wants to experiment on his own. You look at the movements at universities in the U.S., free speech, free sex and so on. I think he doesn't want to accept any other ideal, he really wants to experiment on his own and find something different that will really separate the teenagers and the adults. Rev. Baker: I think you're right, David, but I think also that teenagers shouldn't be too hard on adults when they're a bit hesitant of letting young people find out everything for themselves. You're torn as an adult and you're certainly torn as a parent about which would be the worst abdication of responsibility. I agree that young people should have the freedom to make mistakes but at the same time you must un- derstand the adult's hesitancy in letting the young person make mis- takes. It would be very unfair to suppose that the adult Wants to impose a straight-jacket on the young person. The adult does feel that he made mistakes himself and he should guide the child. I agree, this can go too far, but I think that in your quest for freedom you must also appreciate the other side. Mr. Lawson: I wonder what the teenagers' general attitude to- wards punishment is? We seem to live in a society which has watered down the idea of punishment tremendously and has become immensely tolerant of what is considered just misbehaviour. I wonder whether many young people, in going to extremes in experimenting, aren't chal- lenging the older generation, saying "For God's sake, step out and pun- ish us when the time comes." It seems to me that in a lot of these free movements that are being allowed, the parents are trying to stop them but they won't clamp down and say, "No! In an organized society we forbid that" - Not forbid so much as make it hurt after you've done it. I get the impression that the disappearance of many forms of pun- ishment is a healthy sign, the sign of a more civilized society. I know as a young Old Boy of this school, I was appalled at the disappearance of paddling by the prefects and thought this would ruin the school spirit. and so did most of us. We had to swallow our words a few years later and say the Senior School seemed to be a better place without it. In all societY there has been a tendency. wherever possible. not to punish mis- behaviour and to sav. "All right, if you misbehave find out for yourself how much it hurts." but by the time the young person's found out. per- haps he is an alcoholic or married ten years before he wanted to be, or should have been in terms of professional education, and therefore hog- tied by his family to a mediocre life when he could have lived something much better. as he well knows, or whatever else it might be, or in trouble with the law. and with the feeling of degradation that comes lrom flisobeying the laws of the land. I wonder whether there is a feel- ing among teenagers that society should clamp down on rnisbehaviour once it has happened. Certainly give people the freedom to do it but then don't excuse it on the grounds of conditions or temptations or anything f-lse. We certainly need young people to read anything they want and to see whatever they want to. We're saying "Look at every- thlljir 215 Will. want to and try out what you want to", and then perhaps SfWl9'CV IS ffllllllif to clamp down when damage has been done. Strathy: I've got two things to say. First of all you can't punish TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 41 a 17 year old boy by either spanking him or sending him to bed without supper. Perhaps the reason things are getting out of hand is because there is less help from the adult generation of an understanding nature. You were saying that these things are getting freer - I disagree - it's still against the law to drink before you're twenty-one . . . rather than parents explaining to their children and teaching them, say, how to drink wine at dinner and this sort of thing., teaching them how to drink sensibly and explaining why cigarette smoking is dangerous and harmful . . . instead of doing this, people are still saying, "Don't drink, don't smoke," and they punish someone if he does smoke, which is ridicu- lous, really, because it just makes him more resentful to be punished if he's caught smoking or grounded when he's caught drinking. This I find is pretty hard to bear if you're a teenager, not being told anything and not being allowed to be taught, because that's what teenagers want in a way. I think this is a very strong principle of psychology which is used with children but which is completely ignored by society, that if you have a child who knows how to swim for the first time and he goes out and shouts, "Look at me, look at me, look what I can do" and if every-- one looks and tells him, "Oh, that's wonderful" again and again, or if a person says "You shouldn't be doing that - you're out too far" the child will want to keep on doing it. However if you just ignore this and let it pass, then the excitement for the child vanishes and he doesn't bother doing it any more. I think this is a well-used principle of psychology that when in society you consider drinking and smoking and drag racing as evil, these are the things considered still by young people as the smart thing to do. If it could be changed so that these are not con- sidered the smart thing to do, perhaps quite a few of the evils would be removed. Comparing your European to your North American drinking, the onlypeople over there who you see drunk besides the town drunk are the tourists and the young people from North Amrica. The people who had been brought up on it didn't consider it smart, therefore they didn't over-indulge in it and perhaps it's the same way in morality and other fields, that if a thing isn't considered smart and it's not a symbol of breaking away from your parents, perhaps it will not be done at such a great degree. Carsley: Well, wouldn't something else take its place? Say for instance in the States now smoking is to some degree overlookedg if a person smokes his parents don't pay too much attention to him and hope that the teenager will give it up, and maybe he doesn't and maybe he does, and starts in on LSD. Pollock: I think this is true as well. I think we have to go back further than I just did. I think we have to go back to the roots that Mr. Humble was talking about earlier. There's a basic problem here that's common to both teenagers and adults which is perhaps the prob- lem of identity, the problem of realizing where we're going and what we're going to do. We do have to go back there and just see where we can go from not realizing that there is a common bond between the adults and teenagers. Moderator: I hope I'm not leaving this discussion hanging in mid- air . . . I'll just throw out one more question. What do you feel are the prospects for today's teenager in tomorrow's society? Do you feel that the signs of the time tend to support the idea of a society gone wrong, derelict, abandoned, of individuals dedicated either to apathy or to unapproachable ideals? Do you feel that today's teenager indicates a complete upheaval in tomorrow's society? 42 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Camp: The question depends on whose eyes you see it through. Perhaps fifteen years from now the teenager will look upon us as adults, as being outdated . . . and we will be, at the rate our society is chang- IIIQ. Carsley: It seems that the teenagers in the 30's who are the adults today looked upon their parents as repressive, as we today look upon to- day's adults who were the teenagers of the thirties. The parents of the thirties had the same idea about the teenagers of the thirties as the parents of today have about us, and so it will work out the same way. Mr. Humble: I would support thatg I think that this problem of youth and middle age has always been a problem and I look back and I can see. John, from experience. I think of that period of the twenties - there is no period of history when youth was so condemned for breaking the laws, all the laws. It was the time when free love was coming in. It was the time when drinking parties, the bottle on the hip, were stand- ard. But it seems we are moving into something the world had never known before. We're moving into a world of plenty, a world in which leisure will become the common denominator of most of the people of the world. The possibility of this sort of thing staggers the imagination. It could be, it seems to me, a great flowering of artistic talent and the arts. There's no doubt in any of our minds, whether young or old, that there is going to be such an increase in leisure that there must be found some means of using this. To think that the next generation is going to sink back into apathy because they have everything they need in terms of physical and monetary values, this would seem incredible. I can't imagine a group of young people like you being happy in a society of that sort. I think you will create something new. But this is cer- tainly something the past has never had and which we can hardly vis-- ualize today. Mr. Lawson: In addition, although accused of the highest rate of alcoholism, our society has one of the highest standards of living to go with it. We see a greater flowering of the arts in this country than ever before. I heard someone say the other day that there is more good poetry written in Canada than perhaps anywhere else in the Western world. The fact is, there is a flowering of the spirit in this country as well as the other things. We seem to be pursuing two extremes at one time. We will have to choose which way we're going. I think the cre- ative spirits among us have a great opportunity that was not present when the means to do this was not here. It was only a generation or two ago that the creative artist simply couldn't have lived as such. The day is upon us when this is no longer the case. H Mr. Humble: This is particularly true of drama too in this country. lhere s been a tremendous extension and our young people who are in- terested in this sort of individuality find far more scope for expression. ' Mr. Lawson: You have a greater chance than we had for some- thing exciting, new, and really different, and I quite agree that there is- also 21 bigger, almost siren-like drag to throw everything out the window and to get cynical and pessimistic. But in this sense it's a more exciting period to live in than we've had and that's what I See as a future l'or you, for teenagers.

U A IV" an " xxillll lt' cp . 4, 6 D 1, X " ll X Debatin DEBATING I965-66 Speaker - Tony Whittingham This year debating at T.C.S. has reached a new peak. The number of boys who have actually participated and those who are seriously in- terested has swollen tremendously. I suppose the most exciting achievement of the year is the win- ning of the Fulford Trophy, awarded to the champions of the Inter- scholastic Debating Union fconsisting of ourselves. U.C.C., S.A.C., U.T.S. and Ridleyl. In these debates we were undefeated for the first time since the league began in 1949 and in all but one of these debates, our three debaters achieved the three highest scores. This was due to a large extent to a new system of preparing for debates which the master- in-charge of debating, Mr. Lawson. started this year. More than the required number of boys C35 prepare for a debateg thus a pooling of research. language and ideas results. From these boys, the three who are finally to represent the School are chosen, often only a few days before the debate. This is excellent practice for the younger boys who learn various techniques and become more experienced. Our success this year was in no small part due to the work of these boys who pre- pared for L.B.F. debates but did not eventually debate: Bob Cawley. Kim Lambert, John Matheson, Dick McLernon and Bob Ramsay. Another highlight was the Invitational Debating Tournament held this year in March. It was felt that the time of year prevented more schools from attending, but this was really a minor setback. The school+ which did come CBishop's College School from Lennoxville, Que., Lake- field College School, Port Hope High School, S.A.C., U.C.C. and U.T.S.l expressed enthusiastic appreciation for an exciting and valuable ex- perience. And T.C.S. boys gained perhaps more as judges, Speakers. organizers and hosts than they would have as contestants. Other highlights of the year were T.C.S. participation in the Mc- 44 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Gill Tournament, the debate with Branksome Hall, the mock election, the Third Form Debating Club run by Geoff O'Brian, Mr. Dale's Fourth Form Debating Club. the junior debates against S.A.C. and U.C.C. fboth woul and house debates ranging in topics from shoe styles to the theory of Connnunism to winter sports. The Executive this year included - Speaker - Tony Whittinghamg lleputv Speaker and in charge of Third Form Debating Club - Geoff O'- Brian: Steward of the House - Skip Willis, Whip - Tim Emburyg Recorder - George Strathy. Debating at T.C.S. is also, you may have noticed, not referred to as a club. This is so because we like to think of it as an open society, open to all interested. This year an average of about 75 of the 200 boys in the Senior School voluntarily attended the weekly debates, and every boy was free to Speak from the Floor of the House. The result was a rapid development in the calibre and liveliness of spontaneous debating - some almost too lively! -Geoff O'Brian, Deputy Speaker DEBATING INNOVATIONS 1965-66 This year for the first time with a clean sweep, T.C.S. has won the Little Big Five Debating Championship, and gained possession of the coveted Fulford Trophy. In 1949, Mrs. George Taylor Fulford pre- sented T.C.S. with the trophy for the Inter-Scholastic Debating Union, the proper name for the league, in which Ridley, Upper Canada, St. Andrew's, U.T.S., and T.C.S. are competitors. Dwight Fulford. her son, had been an outstanding debater at T.C.S. the year before. The trophy consists of a gavel mounted on an ebony base, which bears the trophy's name, the winners of the Championship, and the maxim of Mackenzie King: "Persuasion and not Contentionf' Since its founding eighteen years ago, the trophy has been won seven times by U.T.S., four times by Ridley, once each by U.C.C. and T.C.S., and has been tied twice each by U.T.S., S.A.C. and T.C.S.. and once each by U.C.C. and Ridley. We heartily welcome 'home' The Fulford Trophy! Now that we've got it back, we hope to keep it for a while! Towards the end of last year. Mr. J. VVyburn Lawson presented the school with two fine lecterns. a Debating Cabinet. and an official Mace, all in memory of his father, Mr. Irving Lawson. The Cabinet serves the triple purpose of housing the Mace, of storing the minutes book, and of serving as a desk at which the timer and recorder sit during debates. It stands beside the Speaker's chair, a very impressive edifice, as it looms over the House. The Irving Lawson Memorial Mace is perhaps the most controversial trophy in all of T.C.S. Modelled after the original max-es ol' the caveman era, when a mace was actually used to administer rather than symbolize discipline, the T.C.S. mace takes the form of a huge ebony club, studded with silver spikes. On these spikes are re- corded lhe names of the T.C.S. Speakers, and also of any boy who. in the opinion of his fellow debaters, has made an outstanding contribu- tion to debating and public speaking. The Steward of the House parades the mace only at League and Tournament Debates. The Debating Cab- inet and the Mace are undoubtedly the finest of their kind in any school. and they befit the high standard of debating that has been achieved at T.C.S. Our third new innovation is a Debating Notice Board CJ. A. Whit-I TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 45 tingham and Co., Contractorslh which graces the corridor of the class- room block, across from the Squash Ladder, and which serves to keep the school posted on what is happening in the debating scene. With these new additions to the T.C.S. family of Debating para- phernalia, how can we lose? THE RIDLEY DEBATE "Democracy contains the seeds of its own destruction" On Friday, November 19th, a T.C.S. government consisting of George Strathy, Errick Willis, and Tim Embury bombed down to Ridley to defend the resolution "Democracy contains the seeds of its own de- struction." The government showed the unusually restrained Ridley House how past democracies have fallen and proved that this was because they con- tained the seeds of their own destruction. The opposition, consisting of Chris Carter, Ron Holdsworth, and Simon Bruce-Lockart, maintained that these were not true democracies and that the perfect democracy does not really contain the seeds of destruction. After an excellent de- bate, the judges awarded the decision to the government by a narrow margin of two points. This is the second year that George, Skip, and Tim, as a team have beaten Ridley, and they are to be congratulated in starting off our L.B.F. season with this important win. The team wishes to extend their thanks to the boys of Ridley for the warm reception which they gave us, and especially to Erskine Carter who stayed up half the night talking to us. at OUR MACE IS A "LITTLE BIG FOUR CHAMPIONS" TO CARRY -Rowlinson 46 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE S.A.C. DEBATE "This House prefers green to blue" Un February 4th, the T.C.S. government of John McCallum, John lfarsley. and Henry Bull won our second L.B.F. debate here at T.C.S. when they passed their resolution that "This House prefers green to blue". The motion was opposed extremely well by Everard Richards, Donald Fleming, and Ross Howard of S.A.C. While some may have considered this topic trivial, we soon found that it made an excellent debate. The main fields of discussion were art, science, and literature, in all of which these colours play a surprisingly important part. Unfortunately one or two speakers made the mistake of becoming too technical, thus losing the attention of the House. All speakers spoke very well and after a long recess, during which there were a great number of witty and sometimes ribald speeches from the Floor, the judges returned and gave the decision unanimously to T.C.S. Our compliments to S.A.C., who stood second in the League competition this year, for very fine debating! THE U.T.S. DEBATE "Man reasons but to err" When U.T.S. decided to oppose the resolution that "Man reasons but to err", they did not anticipate the oratorical prowess of Tony Rowlin- son, Peter Grant and David Pollock. The U.T.S. Opposition consisted of Doug Watters, Bob Hoke and David Keeble. Our government proved, by a skillful combination of wit and logic and note, reason, that man is a rea- soning, not a reasonable animal, that the outcome of his reasoning is always perforated by slight error, and as well as this, that error plays an integral part in his process of reasoning. The opposition however tried to redefine the resolution and to prove that after sufficient rea- soning, man will eventually form a perfect theory. The house voted 58-19 in favour of the T.C.S. government and the judges concurred unanimously, singling out David Pollock as the best speaker. All the speakers spoke with extreme erudition in this very interesting and enjoyable debate. THE U.C.C. DEBATE "Life is not worth living" Our final L.B.F. debating contest of the 1965-66 season took place at Upper Canada College on Thursday. March 10th. This was the most important debate since a win would mean that we were L.B.F. cham- pions. The UIIC. government of Tony Pargeter, Dick Grant and Dave Kassncr proposed thc pessimistic resolution that "Life is not Worth living". They claimed that an inert state of lifelessness is preferable to life. In face of all of the problems facing the individual today, they felt that death is the only hope. The T.C.S. opposition of Jon Stobie, Ron Vlark and Tony Whittingham showed that it is the solving of the problems facing us, and the tremendous challenge that lies ahead of to- clay's generation, that make life very much worth living. 1 The motion was defeated by both the House and the judges, and T1 .S emerged from the debate the sole winner of the Fulford Trophy, TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 47 the first time for T.C.S. since the trophy was instituted in 1949. Tony Whittingham was chosen the best speaker by all present, for he spoke extremely wittily and very convincingly. Congratulations to these three debaters and to all the other L.B.F. debaters. OTHER INTER-SHOOL DEBATES As well as the four League debates held this season, T.C.S. played host to three other fine debating teams: the Alpha Delts, Lakefield, Branksome. Opposed by three erudite members of the Toronto Alpha Delta Phi, the T.C.S. government of Bob Cawley, John Carsley and John Matheson on January 15 proposed the resolution that "The greatest effect upon the history of society has been personality." This was a very intimate debate, more like a discussion, for it was held in the Guild Room on a late Saturday afternoon, and was witnessed by a Speaker, three judges fMessrs. Humble, Lawson and Blackwood! and a House of two! Al- though all three T.C.S. debaters outshone their opposition in terms of colour, they also unfortunately out-shouted them, and were themselves outspoken, and as a result lost the debate. Nevertheless it was a valu- able experience and our speakers learned the importance of adjusting their voice to the size of the House. The traditional Lakefield debate was held this year on Friday, January 21. An unusually large House Cwell over 1305 turned out to see Mike van Straubenzee, Pat Little and Kim Lambert propose the resolution that "The U.S. should pull out of Vietnam". They were op- posed by Doug Lorriman, David Hodgson and Tom Welch of Lakefield. After the formal speeches, the House was thrown open to some very lively and spirited speeches from the floor Cespecially from Tim Embury and Henry Bulll before the judges returned and awarded the decision unanimously to the Government. Mike, Pat and Kim deserve congratu- lations on a Very fine team effort, combining forcefulness, sincerity and wit. l THE MACE IS CARRIED IN i A BRANKSOMITE WAXES ELOQUENT -Dustan 48 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The final debate of the season, and undoubtedly the climax of the year's pi-ogranime, was the debate against Branksome Hall. A con- tingent of fourteen girls arrived from Branksome in time for dinner on lliarch ll, and were duly given a tour of the school by a number of conscientious T.C.S. boys. By 8:30 the Hall was packed, and the de- baters paraded to their places. The T.C.S. government of Jim Binch, Islnli Rainsay and Dick McLernon proposed that "Canada should be an- nexed to the United States", while their Winsome opposition of Sandy Shaw, Anne Langley and Karen Bohnen rebutted. Particular mention must go to Rranlcsome's Anne Langley who was named the best speaker. The judges deliberated at great length, during which some of the speak- ing from the floor was more marked for its colour than for its tact! There seems to be a common problem of keeping one's mind firmly on the set topic in 'co-educational, debates! The decision, unanimous but close, was awarded to Branksomeg Meredith Clarke, Branksome's Presi- dent of Debating, thanked us warmly for our hospitality and invited us for a return match next year . . . at Branksome. We accept - with pleasure! In reporting this debate the Toronto Telegram's 'After Four' de- scribed T.C.S. as "one of the best boys' debating teams in Canada." The school can be justly proud of anyone who in any way contributed to the debating programme this year. THE SECOND ANNUAL T.C.S. INVITATION DEBATING TOURNAMENT On Saturday, March the fifth, Bishop's College School, who had come all the way from Lennoxville, Quebec, Lakefield College School, Port Hope High School, S.A.C., U.T.S. and U.C.C. sent teams to debate on the resolution that "Canada should send troops to Vietnam." Each school sent a team of three debaters who were required to debate both sides of the resolution. Each team debated twice during the afternoon, once as a govern- ment, and once as an opposition. The best government and opposition teams debated against each other in the final debate in Osler Hall at eight o'clock. The government finalist was U.T.S. and the opposition finalist was S.A.C. After an extremely good debate, U.T.S. was declared the winner by chief judges Mr. Dalton Camp, Judge J. C. N. Currelly and Professor Charles Hanley. Jeff Simpson of U.T.S. was chosen the best debater and Richard Reoch, also of U.T.S., was the runner-up. Port Hope High School are to be congratulated on being the best all-round school in the preliminaries. As well as this, James Duff of Bishop's won the Impromptu Speaking Contest held in the Guild Room shortly before the final debate. This is the second year that we have held the Tournament. We had planned to have sixteen schools this year Cwe invited more than twentfvfi but unfortunately there were some last minute cancellations as well as some schools we never heard from, and as a result We ended up with only six competitors. We feel strongly that the Tournament isndefinitf-Iv something that is worth carrying on and the many com- pliments that we have received would indicate this to be the case. How- QYGI' HQXI I-'car we will have to hold it on a date that does not conflict with Eastei Examinations in order to have a large number of schools attending the Tournament. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 49 THE MCGILL DEBATING TOURNAMENT Despite heavy snow, Geoff O'Brian, Tony Rowlinson, Tony Whit- tingham and Skip Willis arrived in Montreal on Friday, January 28th for the Fifth Annual McGill Debating Tournament, the first time T.C.S. has attended. The resolution was resolved that "Armed aggression is an effective instrument of state policy". The two Tonys made up the affirmative team while Geoff and Skip supported the negative. Both teams debated twice on Friday night and twice on Saturday. Owing to the weather conditions the Tournament was extremely late in starting. and this considerably disrupted the organization through- out. The affirmative team did well, winning three and losing only one, and in the end receiving honourable mention as the fourth best govern- ment team in the tournament, at which nearly forty schools were com- peting. The negative team won two and lost two. Skip Willis won the semi-finals of the Impromptu Speaking Contest for his group of six schools, but did not place in the top three in the finals. Although the tournament suffered from disorganization, all debat- ers gained a wealth of experience in speaking under new rules and some- what trying circumstances. The weekend as a whole was a great success and all debaters agreed that this was mainly due to the efforts of Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Scrivener who were the gracious hostesses. THE JUNIOR AND SENIOR IMPROMPTU SPEAKHNIG CONTESTS Suddenly confronted at the beginning of term with a Friday evening with no debate planned, the Debating Executive spontaneously decided to hold the School Impromptu Speaking Contest, and after much frantic hurrying to and fro on the part of the mighty five, the school was informed, and everything was ready. Traditionally only one contest is held, but this year the response was so overwhelming that a separate Senior and Junior Contest were set up, the one for fifth and sixth forms, and the other for third and fourth forms. The winner of the Senior Contest was Skip Willis, with Tony Whittingham second, George Strathy third, and David Pollock fourth. Skin and Tony both went into the Ontario Hydro Speaking Competition, Skip in the Prepared Speech Div- ision, Tony in the Impromptu, and they both reached the semi-finals in Peterborough before they were narrowly defeated. The Junior Contest is an innovation this year. From now on the third and fourth forms will have their own contest, and a prize, to be awarded on Speech Day, has been presented by this year's Debating Executive. The winner of the contest was John McCallum, with Robert Cawley and Art Kaminis tied for second, and Bob Ramsay fourth. The galibre of speaking in this contest was very high, and the future looks right. THE FOURTH FORM DEBATING CLUB President - Kim Lambert This year, as is traditional, the Fourth Form Debating Society. or- ganized by Mr. Dale, was started just after Christmas. The first meet- ing was purely organizational and from among the eighteen people who attended it, Kim Lambert was elected President, John Carsley Vice- President, and Bruce Cameron Secretary. The ultimate aim of the group being to produce good debaters, the first step was to Overcome any 50 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD selt'-consciousness on the part of the members. This was accomplished in the second meeting by one of Mr. Dale's numerous teaching devices: The Pepper Pot. In this, a speaker is given a topic at random and he has three minutes in which to prepare his speech, and anywhere from two to four minutes to deliver it. From here on, the members became increasingly more relaxed and confident in their speeches - to the point where the society is now holding its own private debates almost every week. Now the club is in high gear, with more debates planned for the future, and still many more eager speakers. It is felt that there will be quite a few promising senior debaters next year, most of them fifth formers, and a good number of those will be "Graduates of the 1965-66 Fourth Form Debating Society". Our thanks to Mr. Dale who finds time in his busy schedule to organize and run the club. -Bruce Cameron, Secretary THE THIRD FORM DEBATING CLUB President - Carey Leonard It has always been the purpose of the Third Form Debating Club to explore and develop the talents of junior debaters, to prepare them for senior debating. This year I think we have found a number of good debaters and although at times the purpose of the club was forgotten, I think that on the whole the Third Form Club has achieved its aim, in giving experience, not only through tips from guest speakers and the efforts of Geoffrey O'Brian, the club organizer, but also from real debates in which the most promising debaters are chosen to compete against other schools. From the result of our two inter-school debates, against S.A.C. and U.C.C., both of which we won, it would seem that the aim of the club has been partly realized. But of course the other members of the club are also brought into action when debates inside the club are arranged on sundry topics, sometimes the one of a forthcoming school debate or an already used Senior topic. Eric Foster, Art Bull and Dave Camp defeated S.A.C. when they upheld the resolution "That Vhiyalry is dead"g and Carey Leonard, John Dreyer and John Wootton beat U.C'.f'. when they supported the resolution "That Machines are a menace to mankind". Another function of the club is to rid the speaker of nervousness, and I think this was partly taken care of at the beginning of the year when on a series of consecutive Sundays, at which time Junior Debating is usually held, members were given topics from a list and made to give an impromptu speech lasting anywhere from two to five minutes. These speeches brought out very well the differing talents of the members and also brought out in the open the many errors and faults of speech which become apparent in first-time speakers. These faults were discussed at length and the more obvious mistakes were rectified. During the course of the year the attention to debating technique became more precise, with rebutting techniques discussed next. In retrospect the Third Form Debating Club has progressed far in their knowledge of debating, through inter-school debates and our regu- lar Sunday night meetings and debates, and we can look forward to having a solid base for joining either the Senior or the Fourth Form Debating Club next year. -John Wootton, Secretary TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 51 MZ?

But a vast majority of the people of North America are failing miserably in their attempts to adjust their thinking to this phenomenal development. People are misusing their democratic privilege by accepting outdated systems that "appear" to work "fairly" well. The people of our nation must realize that change is essential, and that we must not continue with "run of the mill" methods and techniques in national policy. We of the Western Hemisphere must not accept the second best, nor can we sit back and rest on our laurels. Reform is needed everywhere in all fieldsg fields that are easily recognized but never really attacked or changed. There are a number of prime examples, all known controversial dilemmas that plague our society, which I would like to touch on in support of my beliefs. Education is the foremost problem facing us today. With education we develop the basis for a continuation of democracy, and with it we fight communism and ignorance. In our handling of education we have reached the nadir of misuse, for national policy is almost in defiance of national needs. The Canadian Bladen Report and various American com- missions have repeatedly warned us that we are drifting towards ll national crisis in education. Our universities and public schools are bur- dened with too many students and too few qualified teachers. Univer- sities are in dire need of research and development funds but our federal government continues to devote a meagre 3'Q of the national budget to- wards education while 20ff? is spent on welfare. Those who don't accept the need for more and improved education in a trained and skilled society ought to be sobered by the fact that in the past ten years, jobs for high school graduates have increased 305 while jobs for those with less education have declined by 255. In the election race for mayor of New York City, distinct issues developed on the monumental perplexities of air pollution and water conservation. Water pollution is a problem very close to the people who 52 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD live near the Great Lakes where the present calamity in Lake Erie and elsewhere is finally being recognized after decades of abuse. There are numerous touchy subjects that through the years have grown worse because we have accepted as our motto: 'cleave it alone, and it'll get better". A motto like this could be our ruin. We must face up to problems that exist in health and hospitals tmore patients than there are beds, and physicians to attend thembg automobile safety tour highway death rate is much, much higher than American losses in Vietnambg juvenile delinquency Cwe are the losers in this problemlg trade tarriffs twhy not consider a common market similar to that used by booming European industries?Jg currency dilemma Chave We the needed gold to back up our dollar?Jg our foreign donations Cwe are the most wealthy nations in the world, and yet do we justify this position by neglecting the world's poverty-stricken countries?D. We seem to be in a Hplasticine age" where We care little for what goes on about us. We have become spineless and clay-footed in the face of near crisis. Everything that has been achieved by man was brought about by changeg and now in the handling of our technical and scientific advancements, our thinking is falling far behind. -D. K. Camp, IIIA MAKING UP YOUR MIND Making up your mind is a serious business - it requires thought. How many times have you gone into a store and bought Brand X rather than Brand Y because you just saw someone else buy the same type? Or, how many times have you gone to a fair and been unable to make up your mind about the ride on which to spend your last quarter, and finally picked one over the other because there were more people lined up at it . . . or possibly because there were more people lined up at the one you didn't pick? Seldom perhaps, but more than likely you've done this many times. These decisions are almost trite, but numerous de- cisions of this type can add up to make a very indecisive person. Making up your mind should involve you, and you only. Too many people are ready and willing to make up other peoples' minds but don't know what to do when they themselves are faced with a similar dilemma. When a group of people is faced with the same serious situa- tion at one time. it takes a leader to be able to make the right decision for all of them. This happens time and time again at disasters. The people unaffected by the crisis itself are ready to help, but do not know what to do. They are not incapable of doing the right thingg they just cannot think. This inability is due to the unfamiliarity of thinking a problem out, combined with the excitement and tension of a crucial moment. In such a scene, an intelligent man is justified in deciding for a group. But in everyday life, each person should be left to make up his own mind. Not only small decisions, but crucial ones are decided more often than not by the 'herd instinct'. Just looking at how people will change their attire and spend large sums of money in doing so to be part of 'the style of today' indicates the tremendous influence exerted by the 'herd instinct'. It is the individualist, the non- conformist and the intelligent man who are not affected by this force, and often a group of these people can actually change the style by their own type of dress, or manner of thought. Making up your mind to reach a fair decision involves a high de- gree of liberalism in that you require knowledge of the facts, not as TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 53 they were ten days, months or years ago, but as they are at the present. There are almost as many people who make up their mind without try- ing to find out the truth, as there are people who comprehend the situ- ation, yet decide other than what their better judgment tells them, on the basis of the herd instinct - "If it is right for twenty people, it is right for me". A lack of this liberalism can often be seen in the selling of cars. The same people keep buying the same make of car all their lives, on the basis that the first one purchased was good and therefore that all the succeeding ones will be as good, if not better. The quality of cars has been going down steadily. At one time they were made to last a life-timeg now, it is a lucky man whose car lasts without a major repair for more than four years. A knowledge of the situation is essential if a decision is being made. The facts must be sorted, put into their proper order of importance, and a conclusion drawn from them, before a decision of any kind is well founded. The process of thinking, one of man's most treasured possessions, has to be used. If the brain is not put to work to form its own opinions, the wrong de- cision will often result, but even a wrong decision is worth more than no decision, for then a man at least knows where he stands, with him- self, if not with the world. -J. R. Ryrie. VA CAN A CLEVER STUDENT FAIL? In my opinion, it is possible for a clever student to fail. However, before I pursue my argument further, I must point out that a person who is clever, although ingenious and talented, is not necessarily prudent and sensible. A clever man is not necessarily a wise man. There are various ways in which a clever student could fail. First- ly, his environment could cause him to fail. A clever student who lives in slum conditions, and whose parents are not interested in academics, could easily fail his year. The school that he attends would probably be of a very low standard, and this together with the psychological effect of his environment, the lack of a good place to study, and per- haps the necessity of taking a job to help support his family, could cause a clever student to fail. More than just cleverness is needed for such a person to get his matriculation, great industry, determina- tion, and persistence are also essential. Secondly, many clever students fail their matriculation or fail out of college because they do not know how to study. The lower grades are so easy for them that they do not have to work at all. However, when they reach grade thirteen, they find that they have to study, but since they have never found it necessary to study before, they cannot adjust to it. Because of this their marks drop severely, in some cases even resulting in failure. For this reason the student who has to work hard in the lower grades often does better in grade thirten and in Uni- velrsity than the student who was exceptionally clever in secondary sc ool. Thirdly, a clever student can fail through his own fault. I have heard of several students who did extremely well in high-school but failed out of university in their first year. This is usually a result of too many parties and too much drinking. The 'Alpha Delta Phi' frat- ernity at McGill was almost closed down this year because only about twenty percent of its members passed their year, although most of them had done very well in school. Clever boys in secondary schools 54 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD may also fail through their own fault if they become over-confident, if they think they may not have to work, or if they are just plain lazy. Although they have good brains and are essentially clever, such stud- ents, through lack of effort or care, could easily fail. Now one might say that if they do not work, they are not clever, but as I pointed out at the beginning of the essay, the word clever does not necessarily in- clude the qualities of prudence and good sense. Thus it is apparent that there are a number of ways in which a clever student can fail. -J. C. P. McCallum, IVA THE PROBLEM OF CONSCRIPTION Compulsory military service is contrary to all the principles upon which our society is based. Luckily we in Canada do not have to put up with it, but our American counterparts are not so fortunate. In the United States, the draft, especially since the outbreak of trouble in Vietnam, has become the most urgent problem in the life of practically every American male between the ages of eighteen and twenty- six. Is this necessary? Certainly not. Surely the American govern- ment can find enough men who will serve voluntarily, rather than having to force men with obligations and responsibilities to don a uni- form. This they can do by creating an image throughout the nation making military service more enticing and challenging. The prospect of having a rewarding tour overseas, or of acquir- ing a skill which would be useful in civilian life, should be played up. This would be a means of attracting more people, voluntarily, towards a military career. By putting a great deal of stress on patriotism, more men could be attracted. For example, the average person in the United States does not understand the war in Vietnam and is moved by no strong desire to engage in it. If these people could be made more aware of the acuteness of the situation and its grave importance to their country, many of them would be willing to enlist. Also, since they would have joined of their own free will, many of them would be more dedicated to the cause. Many people will argue that even if the government did make mili- tary service voluntary, and employed an attractive means of recruiting, they would still not attract enough men. This is disproved by the fact that in South-east Asia today over 80? of the men serving are volunteers. Surely there are enough men in the United States whose sentiments, personal and patriotic, could be aroused to fill the other 20" and more. Many draftees today are either giving up high-paying jobs or de- laying the start of careers after college. They have every right not only to question compulsory military service on the basis of principle, but also on its infringement of what they have been led to believe is their right to a good ilfe. These are the people who suffer from com- pulsory military service. They make reluctant soldiers. Therefore as I have outlined above, voluntary service would be sufficient for the needs of the U.S. If it is not, then the draft as well will probably prove just as ineffective in the long run because of its resulting build-up of a bumper crop of reluctant servicemen. -R. H. Pearson, IV A TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 55 A PLEA FOR SUPPORT Today in Vietnam, we are faced with a dilemma that could be the turning point in the future of the free world. The Americans have taken a stand that could carry us to the brink of nuclear catastrophe, or smother the wild-fire spread of communism. More than anything else in this struggle the Americans need support from the people of the nation, and from the democratic speaking peoples of the world. During both World Wars a spurt of whole-hearted acceptance for the Allied forces was guar- anteed by the American and Allied publics. And so in essence, we are speaking out against those that speak out against American foreign policy in relation to Vietnam. We can imagine that many would immediately consider this assertion as a condemnation of freedom of speech and expression or the foundation of democracy. But in a time of peril, we of the free world should put faith in the leaders of the American States because we are neither as capable nor experienced as they. They have reached the zenith of achieve- ment in the field of politics. What they need most is the support of the American public, because they cannot consider employing their convictions when twelve thousand Vietniks plant themselves around the White House. Have you considered the platform of the Vietniks or of the other factions that oppose American foreign policy? Have you not been some- what appalled by their complete sympathy for the Viet Cong or National Liberation Front? To me it is disturbing to hear intelligent men and women endorsing the spread of communism. Do they not realize that a conimunistic state does not tolerate freedom of speech and expression of personal belief. a privilege that the Vietniks abuse here? Have they ever heard of a protest march against the policies of Mao Tse-tung? No. If they are going to express their convictions they should do so at the polls. They might find that a representative like Senator Fulbright expresses the state policies a11d beliefs in a more convincing and realistic manner, if they'd take the trouble to listen to him. Those who do not support J'ohnson's policies perhaps are not fully aware of the efforts being made in the White House for peaceg and that every possible idea has been taken into consideration in an endeavour to choose the most logical and responsible steps. The Johnson administration is well aware of the peril and explosiveness of Vietnam. The problem has been debated incessantly since it arose. Every possible step is be- ing taken to procure peace, hope and success. The American peace probes and handling of Vietnam, however, are clouded by the presence of Vietniks and other factions of pacifists who feel that communism is the best mode of government for South- east Asia. Surely we must look to the future when speaking of Vietnam. An atttude of "anything but war" does not consider the future. We lost China to Communism 1949 because we failed to use vision and long-range planning. And today, China is easily recognized as America's foremost enemy and most deadly adversary. We should not make the same mistake again in Vietnam. Mao Tse-tung has nothing to lose in Vietnam. and everything to gain. He would have little concern for sixteen million battered Viet- nameseg what he has at stake is a theory. If we are defeated. it will prove conclusively that communism can take advantage of wide- spread discontent within the lower classes and rural areas of the world. The Sino-Soviet split is essentially based on this theory. The Russians 56 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD support a policy of furthering the development of communism by peace- ful means. China radically disapproves of this stratagem and she is trying to exemplify its misconception in Vietnam. Mao Tse-tung has used "vision" in his handling of Vietnam. We must do so too, if we are To defeat his theory and to procure a victory for democracy in Viet- nam. -D. K. Camp, IIIA IS WINNING NECESSARY? What makes a sport a sport? . . . competition. What makes com-- petition? . . . the desire to win. Without winning, therefore, a sport loses much of its attraction and interest. Winning is just as necessary to those involved in playing a sport as to those who are merely spectators. It is the desire to win that inspires the player and drives him on. For indeed winning has a definite effect upon both the player's character and his morale. It gives him a sense of achievement, for he feels his efforts have been worth-while. On the other hand, losing lowers morale considerably. The player becomes disappointed and discouraged, feeling that his efforts have been wasted. Thus we can see that winning has an effect both on a player's attitude to the sport and to his training and physical fitness as well. A winning player works harder and more diligently because he takes pride in his victories. A winning player achieves higher promotions and greater financial success because he can attract more attention and spend more time in the limelight. But a losing player will slack off, because he feels there is no point in working if all he does is lose. He develops an inferiority complex and begins to feel that what is his best is just not good enough. As a result, he becomes lazy, no longer caring, and will more than likely turn into a poor sport and a "dirty player". Thus the old saying: "It doesn't matter whether you win or lose, but how you play the game" just isn't true, for winning is necessary. After all, if you want to win it follows naturally that of course you will play the game well. But that is just the means to an endg and that end is the desire to win. Surely this is the essence of all sports! -C. B. H. Cragg, IVA PCJPULAR "ENTERTAINMENT" "lf music be the food of love, plav on, give me excess of it, that surfeiting, the appetite may sicken. and so die" . . . Well, I don't know about lluke Orsino, but I must confess that I cannot ask the radio sta- tion flisc jockey to "play on"3 my appetite for what interrupts news, weathf-r, sports, :ind static has sickened very much and unquestionably clieil. I have had enough of groups who play garish guitars and comb their hair either way down, or way up. i Now I ilon't deny that there are some outstanding performers who display rf.-:il talent both in singing and in playing. But there are a lot of groups who try to adopt the image of these successful ones and then try to coast on their fame. Long hair doth not a singer make, nor tmny chords ai song. These groups continue to grind out songs with the same rhythm. the same chord patterns, very similar words, and almost always the same subject - my baby, Cars 01' Surfing. Lately, 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 57 several people have run out of music and have appropriated the melodies of some famous classical pieces, and, speeding them up to a fast, driv- ing beat, have played them on twangy electric guitars or put rather trite and fortunately unintelligible words to them. This type of thing is not limited to popular songs alone. Ever since Mr. Checker produced the twist, people have been making up variations on it. There are to date close to seventy new dances since the twist first appeared. And I doubt that anyone can tell the differ- ences in them all. The ubiquitous television set is not immune either. Somebody dreamt up Dr. Kildare and Ben Casey, then it was a short step to "The Nurses", "The Doctors", "Doctors and Nurses" and "General Hos- pital". Now Casey and Kildare are showing signs of going off the air. "The Defenders" popped up in Perry Mason's wake and produced some exceptionally good and intellectual programs. They are now no longer. And the tremendous list of quiz shows with their grinning, ebullient, stereotyped hosts is growing ever longer. with numerous changes as one show loses its appeal and is replaced by a very similar "great new show". What a waste of good videotape! Now it is not the entertainers who are directly responsible for this. The entertainers are puppets who will give the public what it wants in order to keep themselves in business. If the public is dissatisfied or bored with what it gets it is the entertainers who go hungry. The public is after constant variety and eternal entertainment. Automation has given us more time to relax and to find something to occupy our minds with. If we are content to listen to second-hand, rather poorly performed music, and watch copies of television pro- grammes. and let this occupy our minds, it is a clear indication of just how small our minds must have become. If we can go to a movie which is almost identical with another except for the word "muscle" in the title, and then enjoy it every bit as much as the first, we must have lost all sense of initiative and perfectionism. Maybe I am a perfectionist at heart, but it disturbs me to see people open-mouthed, staring at a tele- vision program which by all conceivable standards is terrible, neither absorbing it nor rejecting it, but letting it merely flow around, past, and through them. It bothers me to see people who have a radio blaring away all day without even noticing that it is on. These are the people who say in despair, "There's nothing better to dog let's lay some rubber around the block." We say we are proud of our country. What we mean to say is that we are glad we live in a country whose reputation was made good by someone else. We, like the mediocre singing groups, coast on their fame, and the image others have made. But the world is not stupid. Sooner or later the image will collapse, and we will be held up for well- deserved ridicule. Are we going to watch television, or are we going to take the initiative and make our country something worth living in? -T. M. Dustan. VIA 58 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ADOLESCENCE AND REBELLION llave you ever listened to a group of adults at a teenage party, or at a discotheque? I have: it's disgusting. Here is a sample of what you might hear: "How suggestive! . . . It certainly was never like this when we were young ..... Look at them, smoking and drink- ing at such a young age . . . You are right John - the younger gen- cration is definitely going to pot." As ai teenager I feel that I am as qualified as anyone to discuss this topic of adolescence and rebellion, and I hope to prove to the reader that this so-called "rebellion" always has, and indeed always will exist. I do not propose any means of crushing the rebellion, for it will always exist as long as adolescence exists, but I hope to show that more understanding is needed between parents and their Children. Let us go back for a moment to the adult conversation at the discotheque. I have said that this is typical, but it is also natural. From time immemorial, man has been comparing the present with the past. Of course "things aren't what they used to be." What a back- ward society ours would be if they were! Children in the "good old days" were just as rebellious as they are now: the only difference is that they danced the Charleston and the Bunny Hop instead of the Twist and the Monkey. Rebellion is typical of adolescence. Teenagers have always thought that their elders were ignorant, yet at the same time, they try to adopt adult habits, smoking and drinking, in order to act more amature". I am not going to delve into biological reasons for this adolescent rebellion, but science has discovered that the physical change in a person's body is also accompanied by a mental change, and so long as there are teenagers, there will be rebellion. You mav Well be asking, "What is so good about this rebellion?" My answer to this is "nothing", The rebellion is inevitable, but it is the task of the adults to provide the teenager with the "material ma- turity" for which he is searching. I can truthfully say that there is no more mature feeling than being included in an "adult" conversation. If a teenager is made to feel responsible, he will become far less in-- terested in rebelling than he used to be. Another way of relieving the tensions of adolescence is to allow children to "voice their problems". Parents who believe that "children should be seen and not heard" will eventually find themselves very remote from their offspring. If the parent understands the child and vice versa, co-operation on both parts will be far easier. The final way in which parents can help their Children is by set- ting an example. In Italy, children are allowed to drink as much wine as they want. If they become intoxicated they are laughed at and ridiculed. They are made to feel that drunkenness is childish, and since they want to act mature, they soon learn how to drink sensibly. Perhaps this would be a good lesson for North Americans. I think it is obvious, not only that the adolescent rebellion is inevitable, but thalt lac-aliii only be softened by a deeper understanding between parent ant c ic. -G. R. Strathy, VA TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 59 THE RIGHT TO STRIKE In my opinion, the right to strike is a vitally important and in- dispensable feature Of our society. If people, especially manual workers, could not strike, their employers Could force them to work long hours with low pay. This was notoriously the case before the English in- dustrial revolution, and it is the right to strike that has prevented it from recurring. The strike is the best way for a group of under- paid or overworked men to force their employers to rectify the situa- tion. An organized strike will bring the work of a company to a virtual standstill, and it will force the company to negotiate for a settlement with the union. However, the right to strike, although essential, must not be abused. Greedy unions whose leaders do not work for the good of the workers but rather for their own benefit, and unions which seek unrealistic terms from the company, endanger and abuse the right to strike. They are no longer using the strike for its proper purpose - that is, to better the lot of the downtrodden worker. An example of a full-scale strike, in which the union, in my opinion, was demanding unrealistic terms, is the New York Transit strike. The union, led by the late Mr. Quill. was seeking a four-day week with six weeks holiday per year, ludicrous terms for any strikers to demand. This is an abuse of the right to strike. , Nevertheless. the right to strike is fundamental to our way of life. Ruthless, power-seeking union leaders, such as Hal Banks and Jimmy Hoffa, are a menace to this right, and therefore they must be suppressed. To hold a strike when one is not necessary and when the majority involved does not agree is wrong. Therefore, the will of asf f' i X 155 uf - --ks..1gr3g3... SI VOBIS INCIPERE . . . -'TAKE ME FOR A RIDE IN YOUR -Dustan MACK TRUCK" -Millard 60 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the men involved must be ascertained and followed, and perhaps even the power of the men at the head of the unions must be limited. But whatever happens, the right to strike must be upheld. J. C. P. McCallum, IVA ARMED AGGRESSION IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY Throughout recorded time, history is marked by men such as Ghengis Khan, Alexander the Great, Napoleon and Bismarckg and we remember these men not because of their intellectual achievement but because of their military success. And well they deserve our study, for these are the men who proved, in their time, that war can be an effective instrument of state policy. But this is not China of 1300, this is not Macedonia of 340 HC., or France of 1805, or Germany of 1870. This is Port Hope of 1966 and the lessons learned on the Chinese highlands no longer apply. When we review contemporary history what do we see? Santo Do- mingo, Kashmir, the "Bay of Pigs" and yes, most tragic of all, Vietnam, and when we focus on these spots we see that armed aggression is no longer being used effectively as an instrument of state policy. The reason for this is very simple, for the "Soaring Sixties" have brought in their wake a war which no one wins. The feeling brought on by this situation is well expressed by Gerard Piel, one of America's leading scientific minds and present editor of the Scientific American. "This is the balance of terror. It is said to be secure against rational strategies, at least on either side. That is, no statesman presently in power is likely to find a reason for attempting the first nuclear strike, which would expose his own country to annihilation by the other side." This is a clear description of a war which has no eventual winners. On this basis we must agree that nuclear weapons no longer play a realistic part in armed aggression as an instrument of state policy. This lowers armed aggression to the confines of conventional weapons. But can war be truly limited, conventional or local? When two adversaries face each other in a life and death struggle, can we expect to limit them by rules and expect to obey them. In cases such as Vietnam therefore, we have a new type of "con- ventional war", a type which is more deadly than any previous war. In it we see action much likened to a poker game. Both sides are afraid of playing their aces for fear that on confrontation with the opposition they will find his strength more than they can handle. But, when the chips are down the aces will come out, and as long as we allow the theory of armed aggression to be practised we are asking for the utter annihilation of a nuclear holocaust. This truth is well recognized by most of the intelligent government leaders today. On January 21 in the Toronto Globe and Mail, Prime Minister Pearson is quoted as saying regarding Vietnam that "ln my view it is perfectly clear that military force will not settle this prob- lem." In an accompanying article President Johnson "appealed anew to Hanoi to come to the negotiating table." This preoccupation with the negotiating table has now become a predominant part of state policy in the free world. The reason for this move is well described by John Kenneth Galbraith, one of the United States' most knowledgeable politician-economists. "The electorate will live with danger, but they also want serious efforts to mitigate it. They TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 61 expect there will be disorder, tension and conflict, but they want imagin- ative efforts to reduce them." It was in the same spirit that Shastri and Ayub Khan met in Tashkent in an attempt to resolve their differences while avoiding con- flict in Kashmir. The role of mediator played by Kosygin is typical of Russia's new outlook towards the Cold War. This trend was established by Khrushchev when he had the word "co-existence" written into the Russian constitution. This much misused term has many connotations and denotations, but in the Russian Communist sense it means the war of co-existence, which rather than being a war of weapons is a war of intellectual philosophies and economic theories. We therefore see that both East and West are tending to move away from aggression towards negotiation, but trends are open for fluctuation and we must therefore strive for peace, or gradually degen- erate into war. Eric Larrabee clearly understands our responsibility in this situation: "Avoiding thermonuclear war," he writes, "is the most compelling duty of this generation, to fail in this duty is to betray not only our species, but all living things, and in this sense, any man who is not a pacifist has taken leave of his humanity." Armed aggression today poses the greatest potential threat to our existence which we have ever faced. It is ineffective, inhuman, and inexcusable. Before its potential is realized, we must move to eliminate this threat. We must move now. he Art A BACH-BEATLE REVIVAL? There was a time when an artist, be he a painter or a musician, would consider it beneath his code of artistic ethics to "borrow" some- one else's work. That is, anything he created was a final product of workmanship and inspiration stemming from his skill as an artist. How- ever, it seems that this has changed - we are now being belaboured into believing that Messrs. Lennon and McCartney are musicians not only of the 20th century but also of the 17th century as well. I am speaking of a record that has come out on the market recently entitled: "The Baroque Beatles Book". Saints preserve us! - the Beatles play- ing Bach!? I am not a musical purist, but quite frankly, I'm biased. I believe that the Baroque era is one of the most interesting and artistically pro- ductive periods in the history of music, and I rather resent it when four mop-heads can get away with allowing a Baroque version of their music to be recorded under the guise of a soul-searching declaration of sincerity. I have listened to the record at great length, and I am prepared to admit that it is extremely clever. The recording is slick and the performance is immaculate, but it is not an honest record. Joshua Rifkin, the composer and conductor, has taken Beatle song tunes and treated them in the Baroque form that "Messrs Bach and Handel" would have used. However, the finished product is not that of the Beatles. It would pass for chamber music of the 17th century. and I -E. F. Willis, VIB 62 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD say "pass", for it is really a carbon copy of music that the Baroque era composers wrote. Rifkin has used Handel's "Harmonious Blacksmith" and Bach's first canon from the "Goldberg Variations" freely in his little pot-pourri. He has also had the gall to set the Words of "I'll be back" in the form of a "Chorale", which properly defined is "A psalm or hymn tune to be sung in chorus, originating with the Lutherans". Evidently, Beatle music is quite adaptable when necessary to be set in either a secular or religious form. It is going to be a cold Wednesday when I am going to sing "A Hard Day's Night" to the tune of "He was despised". Also, there is the record jacket itself. Perhaps I am driving my point in too deeply, but why are there three gentlemen of the Baroque era, obviously Bach, Handel, and Vivaldi, adorned with Beatle sweat- shirts, studying Beatle song sheets, plastered on the cover of the re- cord '? I guess this sort of har-har is acceptable in the back end of be- yond, but I have an idea that Johann and George would have something to say about this "funny" caricature. This tactless humour extends yet further to the extreme of adorning the "original" pieces with inscrip- tions like "Hold me Tight" by "Murray the Klavierkitzlern and "Trio Sonata: Das Kaferlein MBE 0045" CStop, I can't take it any more, these jokes are killing mell Perhaps I'm completely wrong and am not being fair. I think it is reasonable to say that the original creation of this travesty was not initiated by the Beatles themselves, rather by the drummers that fol- low all successful performers. The Beatles are gifted performers and reasonable people, and I think it is indeed regrettable that they have been conned i11to allowing an untrue product. The final music is only half theirs, and I think it is rather discouraging to see this. It seems that this sort of thing is pushed out in super-abundance by a cynical record industry whose only interest in the thing is in making money. -Stuart Chubb, Music Critic THE ART SCENE AT T.C.S. Well, art fans, what do you say? Various types and qualities of art have been exhibited before us in the Guild Room over the last term. How do you think they have measured up? The first show that greeted our eyes was a collection of abstract paintings loaned to us by the artist himself, Mr. Gary Saunders. The reaction to this exhibition was rather mixed to say the least. Let me describe a conversation in the Guild Room during the show. N "Pretty groovy bunch of pictures, eh '?" "Yeah, they're O.K." "llere's a good one . . . called 'City"' "Hmmm . . . some city! . . . That one over there isn't bad though" "That's for sure - strangest looking fish I've ever seen?" "Costs a hundred and twenty bucks!" "'l'hat's amazing!" Mr. Saunders deals mainly with mechanical patterns, which he, through the use of varying colour, treats as intense or loose, or both. llis drawing are very intriguing, full of strange symbols that one can almost recognize, and words one can almost read. Although his art is somewhat stereotyped and lacks a certain amount of freshness and drive, I think that most people would agree that Mr. Saunders is a very promising young artist. The School is very fortunate, for he subse- quently donated one of these paintings to us. TRINITY COLLEGE SCI-IUOL RECORD 63 Mr. P. R. Bishop astounded the school with his one-man show of landscapes that opened in early February. Mr. Bishop has been drawing and painting ever since he was old enough to hold a pencil. Although he has met and studied with several famous painters and has received helpful advice from many artist friends, he has been almost entirely self-taught. The pictures exhibited in the Guild Room covered the range of his nearly twenty years in Canada. His work is beautifully clean and clear, with meticulous attention to the details of light and shadow. His painting reflects a simple love for art and the things that art can do. As Winston Churchill. an artist in his own right, once said. "Just to paint is great fun." Mr. Bishop has never painted professionally, he does it merely because he enjoys it, and his enjoyment could indeed be seen in the paintings he displayed in the Guild Room. The exhibition of photographs which followed. by Mr. Michael Lambeth, Was, to my mind, perhaps the most interesting show yet. Mr. Lambeth is an accomplished photographer who has received many inter- national awards. Some of his work in fact has even appeared in Life magazine, if that is any indication of greatness. Why was his exhibit the most interesting? Because it dealt with people, with real personali- ties. And what is art but a record of man, his emotions and his feel- ings? Happiness, depression. intolerance. jov, fatigue. contentment: these are the emotions that life is made of. Mr. Lambeth showed them all to us. This show made one pause and think, as no other show has done this year. And now we come to the most recent exhibition for facsimile there- ofJ that has been set before us. Kenneth Finch, the artist, says of his rather incoherent "Pop" art designs that he has tried to put unrelated objects together to make them appear to be what they are not: for instance, a basket and an aluminum disc, which, put together, he feels. "have taken on something of a heraldic feeling". If this was his in- tention he has failed dismally. His art appears to be nothing at all. It lacks balance, or harmony or even disharmony. It just doesn't do anything, it doesn't communicate, if you like. It may seem strange that Mr. Finch Cand he is not alonej can make this kind of art sell the way it does. I believe that it is not the artists that are at fault, but the people who buy art. The art market has degenerated to the extent of looking only for painting that is new. different or way-out, and shocking. In the words of Pablo Picasso, "Most people todav can no longer expect to receive consolation and ex- altation from art." When the demand for good art goes down, then the supply of good art that is currently being produced must necessarily go down also. Unless the people who buy art can learn to recognize the good from the bad, then the standard of most art will not improve beyond its pre- sent state. We at TCS are the art market of tomorrow and I hope that the dis- plays in the Guild Room have helped to enhance our experience and judgement of art so that we ourselves may help to improve the quality of art in the future. Do we want to be included with those who, in the words of Picasso, desire "only the peculiar, the sensational. the eccentric. the scandalous", or do we want to make art into a beautiful and enrich- ing part of our lives? -Henry Bull. Art Critic 6.1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD if Literar A A MIDSUMMER'S AFTERNOON The air, which a few minutes before had been hot and heavy, was now cooler, bracing, and altogether pleasant. There was still a bit of breeze which lingered behind the recent cloudburst. The last traces of grey skies had just vanished behind a nearby cluster of hills and were replaced by a bright steel blue cover. The sun's rays were gleaming on the wet. green foliage, giving it an appearance of thickness and of lux- urious lushness. A group of five young bovs left the damp road, hopped over a fence and cut across a meadow. Their noses, which had endured dust and the smell of dry grass for so long, were keenly aware of the scent of the freshly dampened grass. All about them the flowers which had been withered and closed were now opened in a profusion of clashing colours. Here and there a bird flitted bv while the rejuvenated insect population added its voice to the awakening splendor. Briars found it easy to cut the damp legs of the boys. But the cuts went unnoticed as the boys followed the faint path to the river. Not even nettle could slow the youths from their goal. The Weather was too pleasant and the river was sure to be up at least a foot. Just over the next rise was the brown swirling water. Upon reaching the mud bank the bovs discarded their clothes, jumped in. and struck out for the other side. In the last half hour the river had changed from a slow, stagnant, sickeningly tepid body of water into a fast. cool, exciting current. For the next two hours the swimming hole echoed and re-echoed with the happy laughs. the curses. and the taunts that are heard whenever bovs have fun. They played water tag, and their brown bare bottoms flashed in the sun. The horse- flies swarmed to attack. But still the group played on. Finally they grew tired and left. Only the flies remained. ' But before long the duck family, which had scurried away at the first sound of human presence, glided back. Long ripples betrayed a muskrat. Rings showed where a bluegill had snatched a fly from the water's surface. Almost before the retreating intruders had reached the road, a frog symphony was in progress. Chirps, peeps, croaks and roaring bellows all blended together with the songs of crickets and katy- dids to create a din typical of the country. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 65 In small farmhouses along the damp and darkening road, dinners cooled as mothers waited for their tardy sons. Hungry fathers began hunting for hickory sticks. But once they too smelled the clean fresh air, they promptly forgot their cold dinners and thought of boys and summers. -R. P. Armstrong.

Sedgewick, VCE TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD 67 BUSES If I could transport myself to any time and place that I wished, I would go to New York City on New Year's Day 1966. There were no buses. The New York Transit Commission had just gone on strike, agd I would probably be the only person in the city who was happy a out it. You see, I suffer from a disease somewhat similar to siderodromo- phobia which, as you know, is the fear of taking a railway journey. I am terrified of buses. Psychiatrists tell us that such fears originate from some traumatic experience during childhood, and this is definitely where my problem started. I remember it only too well. I had spent the day with a friend, and since our car was being repaired, I had to take the bus home. I was instructed to be sure to ask the driver to let me off at Oriole Road. Everything went wrong. To begin with, I could not find my ticket. I searched my side pockets, my front pockets and my back pockets and my right shirt pocket - no ticket. Needless to say, this did not please the bus driver, and to show his unhappiness, he levelled a barrage of obscenities at me. Incidentally this is where I heard my first "oath", and this was also to have a profound effect upon me in later life. I finally remembered that I had put my ticket in my shoe, but by the time I had given the grubby, torn piece of paper to the driver, the light had turned red and I was the object of renewed swearing. By this time I was far too frightened to ask to be let off at my stop and so when I thought I had been on long enough, I boldly descended into the outside world. I was lost. When a good-looking little boy finds out that he is lost, there is only one thing he should do. He should cry. It always brings results . . .if you are a good looking little boy. I was not. I was a wretched looking little boy. When I cried, the people laughed, even the little old ladies giggled. Finally a policeman saw me and took me home, but if if were not for him, I should have died from exposure. The terrifying memory of this incident has never left me. As a result of it, my sense of direction is non-existent, and I ride on a bus only when there is no other available form of transportation. Allow me to describe to you a typical bus ride. My first problem is which bus to take. In Montreal, the buses are conveniently numbered. I for- get the numbers. This makes it necessary to ask the driver if the bus stops at X Avenue. If it does not, he tells me to get the 1 off his bus and to stop wasting his time. If the bus does stop there. he looks at me as if 1 am a moron and tells me to get the -- on his bus and to stop wasting his time. My next problem is the fare. I forget how much it costs. It is useless to look at other people because they always have tickets. I usually give the driver a quarter and hope that is enough. I never remember that the drivers are not allowed to put the money in the box. And so, when the driver hands me two dimes and a nickel, I, thinking it is my change. walk off. The driver thinks that I am trying to cheat him and proceeds to use force to extricate the fare. Knowing that it is useless to try and explain, I meekly ask him how much it costs, and he begins to scream at me, and raves about my ignorance in front of the passengers who are by this time doubled over with laughter. Finally, when I have paid my fare and am sitting safely in my 68 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD seat. I come to the same old question of where to get off. To ask the driver would be insane and so I usually ask some nice old lady. The last time I did this, the poor woman was laughing so hard that I got off at the next. stop in order not to put an undue strain on her heart. l am sure that you will agree that buses are a menace to society and especially to me. Please join me in my fight against buses. Walk to work and to school - put the bus companies out of business. Re- member, only you can prevent siderodromophobia diseases. -G. R.

They dispose of them at night and to supplement their fright, In the morning there are always others knocking. In the branches of a tree the bird falls dead among the leaves And no longer is his voice heard singing. And the dying baby cries, its mother's ashes by its side, And the wind is many others' ashes bringing. The sparrow that just died - fell by the crying baby's side, With the wind is the only one left singing.

E. Foster, IIIA THE OLD MAN AND THE RIVER A lone Indian sat motionless on the river bank. His long angular face, furrowed by time, bore an expression that was unfathomable to all who did not know him well. He had remained in this pose for hours, seemingly mesmerized by the sluggish movement of the river and the soft gnrgle of the waters as they slowly ate away the banks which contains-rl them. To ine casual observer there was little to distinguish this deep winding watercourse from countless thousands which crisscrossed the lower part ol' Alberta, but for this old Indian the river was an ancient and trusted friend. For the better part of eighty years they had worked and played together. The river had irrigated his crops, watered his cattle, and in times of hardship had provided him with a means of subsistence. Of course there had been times when he and the river TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD A sy 3 S' if fff is SPY VERSUS SPY THE INTELLECTUAL. 69 -Rudolf ALIAS THE LITERARY EDITOR Dustan AND YOU SHQULD HEAR I A GLIMPSE OF GENIUS THE VOICE -CLHNII -Rowlinson 70 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD had quarrelled, and his crops had been washed away by the angry waters, but on the whole theirs had been a peaceful and happy partnership. Once started, the old man's mind slipped further and further back in time. A faint smile lifted the corner of his normally solemn mouth as he relived in his mind his happy childhood by the river. He could still remember the cool comfort the watershed had provided him on many a blistering summer's afternoon. None among his people had known this river quite as well as he. lle had been familiar with every twist and turn, every little idiosyncracy of the current, and every deep hole in which the river secreted the largest trout. He had a special respect for this seemingly sluggish stream which had been a highway to him all his life. His dark eyes lit. up as he remembered the many times he had challenged its furious rapids and cataracts. Every journey downstream had become a contest of strength between himself and the river, and one which he seldom won. "Hey, old man, what you doing sitting there? Come and help us pack our things." The harsh voice of his daughter-in-law brought his reverie sharply to an end. The warm memories were pushed back into his subconscious as the hate and resentment he felt towards the white government came flooding back. What right had these white intruders to sav he must leave his home and beloved river? What right? With painful slowness he straightened his tall withered form and drew his blanket closer to him against the cool evening breezes which were rippling the water at his feet. Throwing one last glance at his old friend he turned to follow slowly the retreating back of his son's wife. During the whole of the following meal and late into that evening the old Indian sat alone in one corner of the skin tent paying no heed to the food offered him nor answering questions directed at him by his relatives. The flickering light of the fire played over his face, lending to it a look of consummate sadness and age. The old man never stirred nor spoke when the family rose and moved from around the fire to their respective corners to sleep, but continued to stare at the glow- ing red embers of the fire now beginning to die. Only when the hut was left in darkness did the elder move, and even then it was not to his couch but to the door. He lifted aside the skin and stepped out into the moonlit darkness. He stood for a moment deeply inhaling the sweet fresh air, and then with a noticeably lighter step than before, he moved down through the sleeping village to the edge of the river where the canoes were beached. He threw off his blanket and moved towards one in the line of canoes. Even the exertion of placing the canoe in the water brought drops of sweat to his fore- head. Quietly he pulled the canoe over to a rock and stepped in, being careful nut to bang the gunwales with his paddle. After much twisting and turning he arranged himself as comfortably as possible and dipped his paddle into the water. Immediately a new strength seemed im- parted to him, and he deftly propelled the canoe into the mainstream. Soon the roar of the rapids came to him a challenge. Faster and faster he moved as the current pushed him on. His face was transformed by the look of wildness and the brightness of his eyes. The waterlooged canoe was found empty ten miles down river from the camp. -W. H.

I distinctly remember saying to George on that particular day, "You know, George, I've just thought of something frightfully clever." I remember because George, who had been biting his nails, stopped, looked up and started weeping. "Oh do stop snivelling, George," I said to him. "Every time I come up with an idea, you start in at this stupid nonsense. Now this time I really do have a smashing plan, and you might at least have the courtesy to listen to it. What do you think about taking the boys on a cookout? We can paddle out of camp and have a picnic-dinner off on some nice little island. That would be fun, don't you think? My goodness, but it's a clever idea!" And then the strangest thing happened. George stood up, smiled, clasped my hand, and began a wild dance of joyous approval, uttering scarcely audible sounds of delight that our problem of programming should be so suddenly solved. And so it was settled. George was to get the rowboats ready, and prepare the horde of seven campers for the outing. I was to look after the food, and make sure that we brought along everything that was necessary, not leaving behind some indispensable commodity. Both of us executed our jobs to perfection, so that we were soon all gathered on the dock ready to set out. George complimented me on my extreme efficiency, and I assured him that it was really nothing at all. And with nothing more said, the nine of us trundled ourselves and our equip- ment into the two rowboats, and off we went. George had said that he knew the way. He had described a lovely little island, perfect for camping, and it was towards this that we both thought we were heading. The boys turned out not to be much good at rowing, for not even with vociferous coaxing could they be persuaded to propel the boat for distances further than one hundred yards. And so, of course, George and I had to take control much sooner than we had hoped or expected. Whether or not it was this that threw off George's keen sense of direction, I'm not sure, but it soon became ap- parent that he really had not the slightest idea of where we were headed. He told me not to worry, though, he'd get us there, he said. And if we had not already passed the same landmark three times by now, I would have been quite prepared to believe him. But as it was, the thought occurred to me that it might be a bit more sensible to pass up his 'lovely little island, for the nearest camping ground we could come across. And so. after another five minutes of frantic rowing, we pulled up our boats on a swampy shore, waded through the mire, and went off in search of wood for our fires. If you have ever tried to instruct an eight-year-old on how to gather a suitable size of wood for a small cook- out fire, you will know what a colossal task it is. Give him five minutes and he will either return by himself with great armloads of microscopic twigs, or with two or three others together, struggling desperately to IU! back some enormous mossy log of incalculable size, each boy beam- ing proudly at the magnitude of his prize. Medium size branches are nowhere to be found. Or so it seemed that day. In fact, it was only when George and I took the matter in hand, and, risking our very lives, ourselves scaled great pines and oaks, whose size could surely have TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 73 rivalled any Sequoia. that we were able to gather any branches even remotely approximating firewood. By late afternoon we were ready to begin cooking. Already the visions of beef stew were filling our minds, and we could scarcely con- tain ourselves as we began to unpack the food supplies. George said he would cook the vegetables and should therefore use the largest pot. and I said all right, it really didn't matter to me, because the meat didn't need the large pot anyway. With that settled we went to fetch the pots, when George said to me, "I say, I think we've left something be- hind." "Really," I said, "What?" "The pots," he said. And sure enough, the pots were nowhere to be found. "Fiddlesticks, you must have left them behind. This is rather awkward," I said, "Now I suppose I'll have to go back and get them." "Yes, I rather suppose you will," said George, who was never one to disagree. And that decided it. I returned triumphant two hours later, with the pots tied firmly to the bottom of the boat, but exhausted, famished, and in considerably bad humour. I remarked to George that if he weren't such a stupid oaf, he would have reminded me to check for them before we left in the first place. And George pointed out that it jolly well served me right, and that I had my nerve keeping him waiting so long. We both went off in a huff, I to my business and he to his vege- tables. I got the meat ready first, and then mixed the orange juice, our dinner drink, putting it in a covered pot to let it stand. By this time George had peeled the potatoes, carrots, onions, and other vegetables, and soon all three pots were standing side by side, and there they waited, while George and I, momentarily forgetting our differences, set to Work on a fire. Within minutes We had obtained a roaring blaze, and I confided in George that he really wasn't such a bad fellow after all. And after profuse apologies from both sides, George, in a magnanimous gesture, set the orange juice off in the shade to cool, and put the meat and vegetables on the fire to cook. For about five minutes we sat, in a reverie, intoxicated by the thought that our work was nearly done and that we would soon have food in our stomachs. Then suddenly George turned to me and said, "I say, do you smell something rather peculiar?" "Yes, as a matter of fact I do," I said, "now that you mention it." "Well, of course, I can't be sure," said George, "but it smells to me like boiled orange juice." "That's odd," I replied, "What do you suppose it is '?" Curiouslv. we traced this strange odour to one of the pots on the fire, a pot which, to our horror. contained two gallons of boiling, frothy orange juice. The vegetables, it seemed, were off in the shade, cooling. That was just too much. In a rage we gathered together all our belongings, put out the fire, herded the children into the rowboats, and. hurling curses on to that ill-begotten island, bane of all campers, we pushed off, at a furious pace for home. I called to George, "What a stupid ass you are. This has been all your fault." "What do you mean. my fault?" he shouted back. "It was your idea to come out here in the first place!" "Yes, but don't you see, you worm? You should never have let me go through with it. If you weren't such a thimble-brain you would have stopped me!" -J. A.

At moments we were good, but most of the time we lacked the finesse and polish needed for a really first class team. This year the squad was different in that it had three 'New Boys on it. a sign that we were short on talent but long on age for the future. It is to the credit of the team that with their record they at no time gave up. This to my way of thinking shows that a team is made up of more than individuals out for their own glory. No team can call itself good unless it has good spirit, which I felt we had this year. Boys like George Trow, Mark Frostad, Mike Marshall and Tom Zimmerman, not to mention others, all improved vastly and added greatly to the spirit of the team. The measure of improvement might be assessed by the team's performance in the Ridley game, at the end of the season, which proved to be the best effort of the year. But, in saying all this, I have left out some very important aspects of the season. This year we were fortunate enough to be invited to the annual Lawrenceville Hockey Tournament in Princeton, New Jer- sey. This is held every year at Princeton, and one Canadian school per ' t h nour to the School year is invited to attend. Thus it came as a grea o . for we used to win it so consistently that we had not been invited back for the past ten years. The boys played three games in a round-robin tournament. Although We did not win, we enjoyed a moral victory. 76 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Out ot' eight schools, we just got squeezed out of third place, by a penalty-shot goal, after an overtime period, during which neither team scored. Not only did the team distinguish itself in hockey, but also as t'anadians and as T.C.S. boys. This was the greatest achievement of all and they deserve to be congratulated for it. It is very seldom a team is asked back within a month, but after one month I received a letter inviting the team back for next year - a commendable result. Likewise, on our trip over mid-term to Hamilton College, in Clin- ton, New York, the team again distinguished itself. This time We were victorious, as well as excellent representatives of the School. It was this feature of the team, I thought, that separated it from the usual losing team. In the next few years, with continued effort, Bigside should become a very good team. As long as there is a will to win, good sportsman- ship, and team spirit, we can do nothing but improve. All that was missing this year was the potential, and of course, some luck. On behalf of the team, I would like to thank Mr. Lawson for his unending patience throughout the season. Also, many thanks go to Mr. Scott for taking boys in his car to Princeton, and to Mr. Philip Jackson, for his support of the team in all aspects: this included taking boys to Princeton, and arranging all our accommodation at the Yale Club in New York, not to mention many other things. Finally, again this year we extend our hearty congratulations to the very successful Bigside Basketball team. -Jim Binch MONSIEUR BIGS!DE HOCKEY Ridley she have good 'ockey teamg Dose Blue and Whites ees nice, But les Maroon and Black ees bes' Dat hever skate de hice.

Dunnage bags, suitcases and hockey sticks are loaded onto and packed into the quartet of mechanical monsters which breathe fire and vapour in front of Trin- ity House. The hockey team is off to Lawrenceville. On Wednesday, December the fifteenth the hockey team travelled by way of the Thousand Islands to the Lawrenceville Hockey Tourna- ment. Held annually in Princeton, N.J., the tournament invites teams from all over the States and from the area of Canada near the border. It is quite an honour to be invited and as a result all of Bigside were looking forward to their trip. From our standpoint in the Binch limousine, or better known as the gas-gobbler, we had a very eventful trip down as every five minutes we stopped either to fill the tank or to fill "hollow-legs" Tittemore. Finally, and that's exactly what it was, we got down to Allentown, Pa. where we stayed at the Holiday Inn. CIt was here that Mr. Scott was arrested as a Russian spy because of his "red" car - they failed to see our Russian exchange student with the beard, thoughlb The next morning, having seen Pat Little up early, tit sent us all back to bed with what we thought was deliriumb we got under way, arriving in Princeton at about two o'clock. At four-thirty, after estab- lishing as our headquarters the Cap and Gown Club, we had a light practice. Then the team returned to change and go to supper at Lawrence- ville, a very large and beautiful prep school a few miles away. Here a banquet was held which all the teams attended - Nichols, St. Paul's, Choate, Taft, Lawrenceville, Belmont Hill, Fountain Valley, and ourselves. After everyone had eaten there were several speeches including ones from Mr. Scott and Mr. Lawson which to most of us were the best of TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ..-M-"' LAWRENCEVILLE TOURNAMENT "IT TAKES A WORRIED MAN" ..Kay P. B. Jackson, Esq CHOATE GAME -P. B. Jackson, Esq TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 81 the evening. At about eleven o'clock we went to bed all very much mindful of our game with Choate the next day. But the day was not done for we had to invent a method of drop- ping off to sleep so that everyone would be rested in the morning. After several minutes had passed Mr. Lawson decided that he was going to bore us to sleep and with Pat, Bruce and Mark all in the same room that is not an easy task. However without a great deal of effort Mr. Lawson did an outstanding job, and at about one or two o'clock he finished reading . . . he only dropped off to sleep himself twice! The next morning we arose bright and early and after we had had breakfast we went by bus to the Lawrenceville rink and did battle with Choate . . . BIGSIDE vs. CHOATE At Lawrenceville Won 3-1 This was the first game of the tournament and Choate was reputed to be the team to beat. Despite the previous dav's 500 mile journey Trinity faced the game in high spirits. Bigside had the upper hand. due mainly to the devastating effectiveness of forechecking by Titte- more and Trow. However, play seesawed back and forth, and neither team was able to score. Bigside pulled together in the second period. Early in the period Trow dug the puck from the corner. and beat the goalie with a quick shot. Half a minute later Jackson slapped in a pass from McPherson to give Bigside a 2-0 lead. Choate began to put on the pressure but great playing on defence stymied any designs to get on the scoreboard. Then, halfway through the pcriod Tittemore gave T.C.S. a 3-0 lead. Marshall and Trow assisting. Taylor, just to make sure no one forgot he was in the net, got the gate for tripping. Mike Marshall made the sacrificeb and the period ended 3-0 for Trinity, with Marshall freezing in the ox. The third period was uneventful except that Choate remembered Trinity did in fact have a net and subsequently put the puck into it. Bigside showed the inevitable signs of weariness but managed to pro- tect their 3-1 lead until the siren sounded. After the game we all decided that the best thing to do was get some rest in the afternoon, as Nichols, whom we were to play in the semi-finals, was a very strong team. So, following a trip to P. J.'s Pancake House for something to eat, we returned to sleep. This Pancake House was the first building that we entered on ar- riving in Princeton and in the end was the favourite of the whole team. It was here that we planned our strategyg it was here that we celebrated our victory, it was here that we serenaded our defeatg it was here that Jim Tittemore Sz Co. devoured close to sixty cheese-burgers, and it was here that all the girls of Princeton seemed to congregate. At six o'clock on Friday evening we had supper in one of the din- ing rooms of Princeton and after a short stroll to digest our meal we changed for our game. BIGSIDE vs. NICHOLS At Lawrenceville LOSf 5-1 Bigside advanced into the semi-finals to face Nichols from Buffalo. From the start, the pressure was on our defence as Nichols swarmed all around our net, doing everything but putting the puck in. However 82 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD we soon got organized and shifted into an attack for the rest of the period. The big Greens from Buffalo started the second period by tallying for the first score. Trinity, straining for the equalizer, just couldn't get the puck past the Nichols goalie. Nichols soon scored again, with Binch off for holding. Then, a minute later, a controversial call disallowed .Iackson's goal from Marshall. Before the period was over, Nichols once again scored, while Trinity was short-handed. With the score standing at 3-0, Trinity had her back to the wall beginning the final period. The game was all but decided when Nichols scored on a breakaway. Then, halfway through the period Tittemore broke the shutout on a beautiful breakaway goal. Seagram tightened up in nets and made some tremendous saves on what seemed like sure goals. However, he couldn't manage to stop the puck on a rebound with 8 seconds remaining in the game. The final score: 5-1 for Nichols, who eventually went on to win the tournament. It was one o'clock Saturday morning and we were licking our wounds as well as some hamburgers that Mr. Scott bought for us. The Nichols game was over. All we had to look forward to was an eightf forty-five play-off game with St. Paul's to determine the third place. But that did not really seem to matter as carols were sung and Mark "Elvis the Sugar-daddy" Frostad gave us a rendition of "Marie's the Name", sending everyone off to sleep for good. It was to the sound of a tinkling tray that we awoke the next morn- ing and very wearily made our way to breakfast. At eight forty-five we took to the ice to face St. Paul's . . . BIGSIDE vs. ST. PAUL'S At Lawrenceville Lost 4-3 This game was a consolation match to decide the winners of third place. Trinity put on the pressure immediately as Trow dug the puck out to Binch, who slapped a scorching shot from the blue line. St. Paul's failed to overpower our defence, but scored on a breakaway early in the second period. Then Callum picked off a rebound to give us the lead again - the assists going to Tittemore and Binch. The third period saw plenty of hustle by Bigside. McPherson stole the puck and scored to give us a lead of 3-1. Jackson did a great job of forechecking, but St. Paul's caught the defense out of position as they scored not once but twice to tie the score. A sudden death overtime period of ten minutes had to be played but even then no goal was scored. So the game "deteriorated" into pen- alty shots. Nobody envied Ian Taylor as he skated from the bench to face the first shot. Shooting for us was Jim Tittemore. Both players started simultaneously from centre ice. Taylor made a good save but Titemortfs shot went wide. Binch now took to the ice for us. His shot went wide, but the St. Paul's player popped it by Taylor. Bigsitle should have won this game. A very drastic let up at the end of the third period lost it for us. Taylor played very well, though, and the loss is no reflection on his performance.

Es 84 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD After we had packed up and were all set so that we could leave immediately after the championship game, which was to be played Saturday afternoon, the team went shopping and succeeded in complete- ly de-stocking a store of its hats. It was in these distinctive hats that we appeared at the game and were noticed. It was rather funny to hear people say, "Well there go the Canadians." It was sad to leave the tournament and the many people who had been so kind to us, but soon we were on our way ready to take New York by storm. While in New York we were very lucky in being able to stay in the Yale Club. It was due to Mr. Jackson's kindness that this was made possible and we would like to thank him very much. After driving like madmen through the streets of New York we arrived at last at the Yale Club. Then it was a quick change and an equally quick supper before going off to see "Hello Dolly", Csome Went to see "Half a Six- pence"J. Following the show we went as guests of Mr. Scott to Jack Dempsey's for a last bite to eat before turning in - this, coupled with a midnight sight-seeing tour of New York, ended the trip on a fan- tastic note. The following morning we set out back to the border and home, leaving Andy "Moose" Mooney to fill "hollow-legs" Tittemore every hour. We really cannot express the enjoyment that we had on paper, all we can do is to thank everyone who made it possible, and hope that those who go next year will have as much fun as we all did. BIGSIDE vs. OLD BOYS At Port Hope January 15 Lost 7-3 After a successful Lawrenceville trip, Bigside was expecting to do well against the Old Boys. We were in for a rude awakening, though, as they banged in four unanswered goals in the first period. In the second period T.C.S. started moving. Bruce Callum and George Trow combined to get Bigside's lone goal. However, the Old Boys were not held scoreless as they shot for two big goals, giving them a substantial 6-1 lead. Bigside rallied in the third period - Jackson and Little both scor- ing - while the Old Boys were held to only one goal. However, as play had been somewhat ragged in the first two periods it was impossible to do more than slightly close the gap. Dave Seagram is to be complimented on excellent goaltending for the Old Boys, as substitute for the injured Bill Bowen. BIGSIDE vs. SAHARA DESERT CANOE CLUB At Port Hope January 22 Won 8-4 Sahara Desert capitalized on T.C.S. errors and took an early lead on a goal bv Ellis. Tittemore then tallied while the Canoers had a man in the penalty box. The period ended with each team netting a goal apiece, leaving the score 2-2. The second period was a netminder's nightmare as six goals were scored. Trinity dominated this period by scoring four of the six, with goals by McPherson ltwoj, Jackson and Tittemore. Saharafs first game earlier in the day started to show in the third period as the Cfanoes slowed down and allowed Jackson to pump two goals past Mike Burns. This game was fast, rugged and enjoyable to watch as Trinity came out on top 8-4. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 85 BIGSIDE vs. P.C.V.S. At Port Hope January 26 Lost 7-4 Play for the first half of the period was very even. Then P.C.V.S. popped in two quick goals. Bigside came back on a goal from the point by Zimmerman, and Tittemore flipped one in, in the dying seconds of the period to tie the score 2-2. The second period was quite aggressive although P.C.V.S. scored the only goal. T.C.S. played strong hockey in this period and only the superior goal-tending by the P.C.V.S. goalie kept Bigside off the sheet. T.C.S. owned the first four minutes of the third period. Jackson scored a picture-play goal with Little assisting. Two minutes later Jackson again dented the twine on a screened shot. However, T.C.S. then collapsed, as P.C.V.S. took over and scored four goals within nine minutes, leaving the score 7-4 in their favour. BIGSIDE vs. U.C.C. At Toronto January 29 Lost 9-1 The first period was one of enjoyable but not spectacular hockey, with defensive stalwartness and offensive lapses combining for a score- less tie, broken only when Doherty of U.C.C. scored towards the end of the period. Both teams immediately set into the second, and U.C.C.'s domina- tion of the play, and their effective exploitation of a Bigside weakness on covering passes from the side of the net, resulted in their quickly amassing goals by Giffen, Hoffman, Boxer, Harvey, Lattrick and Biggs. The fourth goal was scored by Jackson for Bigside, diving to convert Tittemore's goal-mouth pass to dividends on the scoreboard. No goals were scored by either team in the third period. Bigside tightened up and played much better hockey. Play was marked by some extremely effective combinations on both sides, being thwarted, however, by the excellent goaltending of U.C.C.'s Ackland and Seagram of T.C.S. The superior organization and talent of the U.C.C. first team ennabled it to win this game handily. BIGSIDE vs. U.T.S. At Varsity Arena, Toronto February 2 Tied 3-3 In a somewhat abbreviated game of three fifteen minute periods, T.C.S. Bigside overcame a 3-1 deficit to tie their game with U.T.S. The indoor ice of Varsity Arena was slow and the atmosphere warm. As a result both teams' first period efforts were sluggish. The scoring was opened by U.T.S. while T.C.S. had two men in the penalty box. However, McPherson soon tied the score when he tipped in a pass from Callum and Tittemore. In the second period U.T.S. struck for two unanswered goals. The third period was one of complete T.C.S. domination. Bigside seemed to catch fire, and play seldom ventured back to the T.C.S. end. As a result of aggressive play Jackson was set up by Little and Titte- more and McPherson scored from Callum, in a scramble in front of the net. For the last few minutes T.C.S. had control of the puck but were unable to capitalize on their opportunities, and thus the game ended a three all tie. 86 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD BIGSIDE vs. HILLFIELD Al Port llope February 4 Lost 3-1 The first period saw little action at all as play was very ragged. Bigside did have the advantage in this period, but were not able to body check anywhere on the ice and the superb goal tending by Hillfield kept T.t'.S. off the score sheet. The second period was a little better with both teams netting one goal. Hillfield scored on a breakaway and Trinity came back when Little banged the puck into the net from just outside the crease. The third period belonged to Hillfield. They outskated Bigside and consequently scored two more goals. Hillfield gave everything they had to win this game and came out on top 3-1. BIGSIDE vs. THE RINKY DINKS At Port Hope February 5 Lost 4-2 Mike Marshall opened the scoring early in the first period with a blistering slap-shot. However the period saw little additional ex- citement or action as both teams played scrappy hockey. In the second period, the Rinky Dinks took over command. Gor- don scored two goals - one at the six minute mark and the other four minutes later. The Rinky Dinks kept up the pressure and netted two more goals by the end of the period, making the score 4-1 in their favour. The Rinky Dinks appeared to be over confident in the third period and had a severe let-down. Bigside came back fighting, but Little was the only Trinity player to score against Bill Bowen's superb goal- tending. The game ended in a 4-2 victory for the Rinky Dinks. BIGSIDE vs. LAKEFIELD At Port Hope February 9 Lost 7-1 The game started off at a very fast pace with both teams throwing their weight around. However Lakefield had more to throw around and consequently had Bigside worn out very early in the game. Bigside's passing was erratic, as throughout the season, and the Lakefield players were better skaters. So Bigside were forced to play in their own end for most of the game. But with only twenty seconds remaining Jim Tittemore broke through Lakefield's excellent defence and scored our only goal in a humiliating 7-1 defeat. BIGSIDE vs. HAMILTON COLLEGE FRESHMAN On Friday, February 11th, Bigside left Port Hope for Hamilton Vollege in Clinton, New York, for two exhibition games against the freshman team. The trip to Hamilton, which will be a memory for us all, had its excitements - lunch at the McPherson's in Napanee - the Burley Travel-all with Arnie - Jim Binch and his dream car - and the Ster- ling Moss driving of our Mr. Lawson. . We arrived at Hamilton at six-thirty for an eight o'clock game. Higsifle had a quick dinner and then went off to change. February 11 Won 11-2 We were up for the game and determined to dent the twine. How- ever Hamilton scored first on a goal by Glennon. Trinity stormed back though. OH finals by Tittemore and Marshall by the time the first period ended. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 87 i BIG DADDY" AND THE BOYS THOMAS A BECKET --'f-I-v.-.W i , iq JR? GAME AGAINST HAMILTON COLLEGE -P. B. Jackson. Esq. 88 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD The second period belonged to Bigside. They caught fire immedi- ately on a goal by Tittemore. Jim Binch hit the mark two minutes later with a shot from point. Tittemore then made a solo effort from one end of the ice to the other and slammed home a beautiful wrist shot. Bigside kept this scoring spree going with goals by Little, Titte- more qagainl, and Zimmerman, leaving the score 8-1 for Trinity. The third period was much calmer with Hamilton scoring the first goal. Bigside had a lapse and it looked as if Trinity were going to collapse, but Tittemore prevented this from happening by scoring his fifth goal of the game. Trinity was now feeling the effects of the drive and the scoring was not as high in this period. Little and Zim- merman rounded out the scoring to make the final score 11-2 for Trinitv. February 12 Won 10-0 The game was played at twelve noon after a training breakfast of steak at ten thirty. Bigside now knew this was a game to score goals and to give Sea- gram his first shutout. Trow scored the first goal early in the period. McPherson and Little closed the scoring of the first period, leaving the score 3-0 for Bigside. The second period was similar to the first. Marshall, Tittemore, Jackson, and Zimmerman each tallied. With the score standing at 7-0, the pressure was now building up to give Seagram a shutout. The third period was defensive hockey all the way. Trinity was cautious and only took a few chances to go on the offensive. When they did, they capitalized and scored three final goals by McPherson. Little, and Binch. Seagram earned his shutout by a 10-0 score. BIGSIDE vs. S.A.C. At Port Hope February 16 Lost 6-1 With the mid-term weekend just over for both schools, we expected to see slow action. However, we were pleasantly surprised as both teams played fast hockey. S.A.C. was more effective though, as Mc- Keen, McClockin and Sommerville each put the puck past Seagram, in goal for Trinity, It was at this point that Jim Binch conveniently lost his contact lenses, and had both squads grovelling around the net at the T.C'.S. end trying to help him find them. T.C'.S. played much better hockey in the second period. Bigside held S.A.C. scoreless while McPherson's goal lifted Trinity spirits. How- ever, no one else managed to put the puck in the net, and the score at the end of the period saw the Saints leading 3-1. Trinity started the third period with the idea that this was their period ol' hockey. However, S.A.C. got the jump on us and Bigside could not seem to get rolling. The Saints clicked on some good plays - Morrison, Barrett, and Kitchen each adding a goal, leaving the score 6-l in favour of the visiting team. BIGSIDE vs. APPLEBY COLLEGE At Port Hope February 19 Lost 6-4 - The first period of play seesawed back and forth, neither team being able to make a sustained drive, until Trow of Bigside scored a dramatic goal while the Appleby goalie lay sprawled on the ice. Then ADDl9b5' came back, with Winchell scoring on a close-in drive. Appleby and Trinity played even hockey throughout the second TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 89 period although Bigside was outscored two goals to one. Appleby's marksmen were Winchell and Campbell. McPherson netted the lone Trinity goal. Trinity began in the third period determined to overcome their one goal disadvantage. However, Appleby again outscored Bigside by three goals to two. Winchell with two and Baillie with one capped the scoring for Appleby. Lindop and Tittemore scored for Trinity, leaving the final score at 6-4 for the visitors. BIGSIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope February 23 Lost 11-1 With the memory of last year's 2-1 loss to the Blue and White, many of the Trinity supporters were hoping for a repeat performance. The first period of play was surprisingly bright for both teams with many near goals. However, U.C.C. had that extra punch and drive. Biggs, Jones and Giffen each managing to score. The second period, however, was the sole property of U.C.C. They played superior hockey to Bigside and the result was four more goals, Wright going on a two goal splurge and Doherty and Dickinson each netting one. With Trinity discouraged, U.C.C. was out for more goals. Domelle and Boxer each tallied before Trinity could get on the scoreboard. Then Little drew the defence aside, and flipped a clear pass to Phil Jackson who knocked it home. U.C.C. came back with two more goals by Giffen and Biggs, leaving the score 11-1 in favour of a very strong Upper Canada squad. We must congratulate U.C.C. on their consistently outstanding hockey! BIGSIDE vs. RIDLEY At St. Catharines February 26 Lost 6-3 In this final L.B.F. game Bigside started out well, managing to keep Ridley costly lapse in their own end for most of the first period. However a midway through the period resulted in Ridley scoring three goals in less than three minutes. In spite of this let-down Bigside came right back and kept up with Ridley for the remainder of the period. The second period went well for T.C.S. Jackson scored early in the period, assisted by McPherson. After this goal both teams seemed to be deadlocked and there was no further scoring. In the first half of the third period Bigside kept had established in the second. Trow scored at two by Lindop and Tittemore. Four minutes later Jackson up the pace they minutes, assisted scored his second However Ridley goal to tie the game. Little and McPherson assisted. soon dashed all our hopes of winning by scoring three quick goals a few minutes later. Bigside played extremely well in this game and kept up with the much stronger Ridley team for most of the game. The line of Phil Jackson, Pat Little, and Bruce McPherson played exceptionally well and accounted for two of the goals. Jim Binch was a standout on defense. BIGSIDE vs. LAKEFIELD At Lakefield March 2 Lost 7-1 Bigside travelled to Lakefield for their third game with the Grove this year. Our opponents, fielding one of their most powerful teams in some years, struck early and opened the scoring in the first shift. By 90 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the end of the first period they were out in front, 3-0. The second period was dominated by the Grove, with Bean, who contributed ll hat-trick to the Lakefield effort, leading the offensive. Rigside was unable to prolong a sustained attack, the result being two more Lakefield counters. ln the third period, Bigside fared litle better, as we were consist- ently out-played. The only ray of brightness came when Jackson con- verted a goal-mouth pass from McPherson and Little, midway in the third period. However, Lakefield had little trouble in connecting for two more goals. Thus Bigside retained its consolatory distinction of at least not being shut out this season. MIDDLE lllll HIIUKEY Captain's Report The team this year was one of great potential which was never realized until the last of our games. Our win-loss record shows this quite accurately. Remaining faithful to the Middleside tradition, we were gloriously wiped in our first game by Upper Canada. Yet undaunted we held them to 2-0 in their game with us here. The team progressed throughout the season and at its close St. Andrew's and Ridley lay at our feet. We hung up our blades smiling. Coach Campbell was as wrapped up in the team as any of us. When- ever a swift kick was needed he supplied ity we hope we gave him some cause to be proud at the season's close. -Andy Barnard MIDDLESIDE HOCKEY SUMMARY Won 3 Lost 8 Middleside vs. Port Hope Lost 4-2 Middleside vs. U.

The game started out favourably for us. They played "heads-up" hockey, played their posi- tions and skated hard. As a result, Shier scored on a long shot which the U.C.C. goalie stopped initially, but which had the momentum to score. However, from this point on Middleside sagged and could not tally on several U.C.C. penalties. Brent Kay seemed to tire quickly in the T.C.S. nets, making several meritorious and spectacular saves, but with little support from the rest of the team he could only prolong the inevitable. John Shier and Andy Barnard played well. MIDDLESIDE vs. S.A.C. At Port Hope February 16 Won 3-1 This was one of those games in which Trinity could do nothing wrong and S.A.C. could do nothing right. It was an unusually rough game with solid checks being handed out by both sides. There was a total of 18 minutes in penalties, T.C.S. getting half. Trinity outplayed S.A.C. throughout the game. Every T.C.S. player had a good shot on goal as the statistics will indicate CT.C'.S. shots on 92 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD goal - 26: S.A.C. shots on goal - 51. Shelley and Biggs scored for T.C.S. in the first period, S.A.C. scoring as well. McIntyre's goal from Simmonds was the only one of the second period. It should be mentioned that due to lack of time, only two periods could be played. Even if a third had been played, however, statistics would indicate a T.C.S. win. MIDDLESIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope February 23 Lost 2-0 This was a game that Trinity should have won. Middleside skated fast and checked hard, but although we out-played and out-shot U.C.C., they managed to emerge as victors. The first period opened at an extremely fast pace and Trinity kept U.C.C. at bay as Taylor made some spectacular saves. It wasn't until the dying moments of the period that he was beaten in a scramble in front of the net as U.C.C. took the lead 1-0. Trinity quickly rallied and dominated the play for the rest of the second period. However, luck was not with us as we missed many scoring opportunities. Once again, although completely out-played, U.C.C. scored near the end of the period to make the score 2-0. In the final twenty minutes there was no scoring and Trinity once again blew many fine chances. It was a frustrating game to lose, but against a U.C.C. "power-house" the team played extremely well. MIDDLESIDE vs. Ridley At St. Catharines February 26 Won 4-0 Rough and exciting were the words for Middleside's game against the Ridley Seconds. In the early minutes of the period, it looked as though Ridley's size would win out, as the game was rough from the first whistle. Trinity, however, made up for its lack in size with extra drive. and we managed to control play for most of the period. Shelley scored the first goal which turned out to be the game winner. With the score 1-0 for T.C.S., Ridley began to put on the pressure in the second period. However at the half-way mark, Barnard scored on a deflection. Not long after this, Mooney tallied, making it 3-0 for T.C'.S. The third period was by far the most exciting as Ridley was trying desperately to get back into the game. Credit must go to Barnard and Vruickshank for the superlative job they did in penalty killing. How- ever. the great stand-out of the third period was 'Gump' Taylor, who made phenomenal saves time and again. Gary Simmonds finished the scoring. giving Trinity a 4-0 win in one of the most exciting games of the year. A fitting climax to lVIiddleside's end-of-season boom! l.lT'IliEl'lIlll IIUUKEY Captain's Report Littleside Hockey began the season aggressive and willing. How- ever we were beaten in our first two games and began the third with a depressed attitude. Nevertheless, we were determined, and after a tie in this game, the entire team was sparked as we continued to stretch our winning streak to two games, by overtaking the Saints 8-2. Our next game was perhaps our best of the season. Although we were beaten by Appleby Seconds. it was a close match, as the score indicates. 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 93 The team was lacking in experience but strong in spirit. This lack of experience was probably our downfall, as a number of the players had played previously little if any organized hockey. A great cleal of credit must be given to the players, however, for the entire squad im- proved rapidly as the season went on. I would like to thank Mr. Goebel for the time he put into the team this year, and Mr. Dale and Mr. Campbell who coached us on xarious occasions. Thanks are due also to Jim Tittemore for the memorable practices he put us through. -.lim Robson LITTLESIDE HOCKEY SUMMARY Won 2 Lost 6 Tied l Littleside vs. Port Hope Lost 10-3 Littleside vs. Lakefield Lost 4-2 Littleside vs. U.C.C.

At Port llopc January 26 Lost 10-1 Littleside started this game playing very poor hockey and Upper Canada was able to capitalize by scoring four goals in the first ten minutes. Littleside was able to hold them until the end of the second period when again U.C.C. scored four goals in a space of about ten minutes. In the third period we steadied a bit and U.C.C. could only manage two goals. Late in the period Jim Robson scored T.C.S.'s only goal, Ian Campbell assisting. The Upper Canada team was much better and more experienced than ours as the score indicates. However, it was because of Little- side's sloppy play that the margin was so great. True, it was only the second game of the season, but hardly any forwards were making anything more than a half-hearted attempt at backchecking and Very few played their proper positions. U.C.C. deserved the victory. LITTLESIDE vs. S.A.C. At Aurora February 16 Won 8-2 The great success of the game was incited by a change in the atti- tude of Littleside. They had heard far too often that they really didn't want to play a contact sport like hockey. As a result they stepped on the ice wanting to win badly. Undaunted by the first S.A.C. goal, Peter Vaisler, exhibiting brilliant stick-handling, netted two quick goals. S.A.C. continually played a defensive game and if they did manage to get the puck, Jeff Cannon and John Vines certainly didn't let them have it for long. Littleside proved they 'enjoyed' body contact, because they were penalized for rough play far more times than the timid S.A.C. team. Over-exuberance, perhaps! Pete Vaisler and Jim Robson did the best job controlling the puck. Robson, who assisted on Bruce Cameron's two goals and Matt Curre11y's goal, played outstanding hockey throughout the game. Practically every- one on Littleside played their best game of the season - above all Ian Vampbell, Hugh Johnson and Dave Galt. Special credit must be given to l.ittleside's goalie, Tom Molson, who after a poor start at the com- mencement of the season, appeared to be gaining confidence and form. LITTLESIDE vs. U.C.C. .Xt 'Toronto February 23 Lost 6-0 The first period opened with Upper Canada completely dominating the play. As a result of this they scored two quick goals in the first five minutes. After this outburst Littleside steadied a bit and kept L'.f'.f'. from scoring until the end of the period. In the second period Upper Canada again started out strongly, scor- TRINITY COLLEGE SCIIOOI, RICCORD 95 ing in the first few minutes. Although they controlled the puck for most of the period, they did not score again until the last few minutes. Littleside improved substantially in the third period, and played up to.their opponents. They had many good scoring opportunities, but failed to capitalize on them. Upper Canada scored about half way through the period to round out the scoring. This game was played on a very warm afternoon and the ice was very soft and slow. As a result both teams, particularly T.C.S., played very sloppy hockey. But it was a considerable improvement over the first U.C.C. game. xii nv Vx 'X I y ., . A .. Tx 7' lk ' . . . A iyxxlxii yi .' ,Q ' H L ...ffrxii xi. a l I 'ly pl, ig,fj'.

One might ask how, when the L.B.F. title wasn't even captured, a team could be considered successful. However, this is misleading. Our record speaks for itself: 15 wins and 2 losses. We beat some of the largest and most powerful teams and in our home court would be a good match for any team in the province. Our success was due primarily to our great height. Everybody on the first line was over six feet and Robin Armstrong's 6'6" was never surpassed by any competitors. However, some of the most determined and valuable play came from some of the shorter members. The spirit of the team was always first class. For the second year we warmed up to the tune of "Sweet Georgia Brown". The new innovation for '66 was the team name, "War Eagles", which was worn on our backs. Why Wasn't the L.B.F. captured? Our team this year had one great weakness. We lacked the ability to revive after a long bus trip. Q6 WRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD -w. ' ..

In these away efforts we could not regain our accuracy or coordination throughout the entire game. The most notable quality of the team was its unwavering enthusi- asm. Although it was not possible for all the players to see as much court time as they would have liked, never was there any complaining. In fact, the second line players were a very necessary element in our success. Had they not worked hard during practices and accordingly not given the first line good competition, our improvement would not have been as great. Often I feel that the coaching factor around T.C.S. is under-rated. I'm sure that we would not have had as successful a season as we did without the superb coaching of Mr. Heard. He kept us cool in many tense moments and on behalf of the team I want to thank him for his tremendous effort. On the statistical side, we cannot forget Beauregard Clark. With a character like Beau on the team how could we help but have high spirits? To next year's team I wish the best of luck. The nucleus is perhaps not as firm as it has been in the last several years, but a devoted and enthusiastic group I am sure it will be. I hope they will keep in mind, as I think we did, that although winning is important, if you've tried your hardest and had fun, it is worth it whatever the outcome. -Will Hafner EXHllll'l'lllN GAMES Won: 12 Lost: 1 Points for: 813 Points Against: 575 BIG-SIDE vs. PORT HOPE At T.C.S.

These were the thoughts spectators were thinking as they left after seeing the 'War Eagles' win their first L.B.F. game of the season. The game started off with both teams showing good ball-handling as they felt out each other's weaknesses. The score was 10-9 at the quarter with Will Hafner netting 8 points. The second quarter was marked by sensational shooting for both teams. However, the "War Eagles" started their deadly swoop and left the half-time score at 31-20 in their favour. The second half began with good floor passes, rebounding, and shooting accuracy for both squads. U.C.C. used a passing game while T.C.S. relied on the fast break. 'Yamaha' Stobie displayed determined defensive play while 'Oxfam' Armstrong controlled the backboards. The game came to an end with an impressive 55-34 victory for the 'War Eagles'. Hafner with 19, Armstrong with 12, and Willis 10, led the scoring race. BIGSIDE vs. S.A.C. At Aurora February 16 Won 54-31 Elated by a string of 11 consecutive wins plus a restful half-term break, the War Eagles travelled to S.A.C. on a snowy afternoon where they experienced the first symptoms of what was later to be called 'the bus ride slump'. Though they had the height, the War Eagles started slowly. The X X ga FRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ws 3 QU l 41,3 X J kk J- 1 , -xi' """ WILLFUL THEFT SKIP 5 a 3 3 i . are-A-N...

Due to the tight calling by the referees, three of our first stringers had three fouls each by half-time. Despite these setbacks the half-time score was 20-15 in our favour. Though still bothered by fouls, the War Eagles built up the score to 34-23 in the third quarter. By the fourth quarter the War Eagles were closing in for the death blow. Hafner and Willis found their mark and netted eight points apiece. The final count was a 54-31 vic- tory for T.C.S. Although S.A.C. had a shorter team they exhibited fine defensive play. Hafner with 26, Willis with 12, and Robertson with 10 topped the scorecard for T.C.S. BIGSIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope February 23 Won 92-37 The War Eagles were right at home for their second game with U.C.C. There was a certain unmistakable air of confidence as Bigside bared their claws for the game. The first quarter started with a bang, 'Munchy' Robertson netting them from all over as the War Eagles raced from one end to another with a succession of fast breaks. By quarter time the score was an im-- pressive 24-4 for T.C.S. The second quarter displayed an equally de- termined Bigside. 'Wahoo' Hafner and 'Oxfam' Armstrong gracefully moved the ball for repeated lay-ups to push the score up to 46-12 by half time. The third quarter showed a praiseworthy effort by U.C.C. In this quarter, although T.C.S. continued its fine performance, U.C.C. nearly doubled their score. The last quarter of the game varied little from the previous three. The final score was 92-37. 1?

Ridley worked the hall in for lay-ups. We couldn't control the ball and our passing was completely off. The score at the quarter was 10-5 for Ridley. The second quarter was just as disastrous as the first. Our offen- siw was pathetic, with Ridley grabbing most of the offensive and de- fensive rebounding. The score at the end of this first half was 19-12 for Ridley. ln the third quarter Ridley had extremely good outside shooting and T.C.S. lacked the essential part of their offensive - the fast break. The score at the end of the third quarter was 36-18 for Ridley. The fourth quarter brought a vain attempt by the War Eagles to come back, but they were met halfway by Ridley. Poor ball handling in the forecourt cost us the game and a sure L.B.F. championship. The final score: 57-42 for Ridley, who deserve our sincere congratulations. MIIHILESIDE BA. KETBALL Captain's Report This year's Middleside Basketball started the season as a very in- experienced and unco-ordinated team, as is shown by our overwhelming defeat at the hands of de la Salle. But as a team we had potential, and this we set out to exploit to our utmost. Gradually after many de- feats and steady practice, we improved our play to the point Where we were able to give some good teams a run for their money. Our gamc agaiitist Appleby was just such a game, and one which I personally will not orget. It seems that to many people at the School Middleside Basketball is a joke, but for the Middleside team this was not so. Despite many defeats and a great deal of kidding from the other boys, I can think of only one instance when our spirit flagged and then only when we were exhausted and being very badly beaten. To us the team meant some- thing and we all worked hard to make it what a School Middleside team should be. No one person can be singled out as the best player for We were all in much the same category as far as skill was concernedg every player was an important part of the squad. On behalf of the team I would like to thank Mr. Baker for his in- dispensable help as coach of the team. We never would have progressed as far as we did without him. I only hope the season's experiences didn't give him ulcers!

Play see-sawed hack and forth until Turcot came through for Trinity's first 2 points. The quarter ended 4-2 in T.C.S.'s favour. In the second quarter T.C.S. came to life with better ball handling, with which they managed to roll up a seven point lead. By the end of the half, T.C.S. led 12-5. In the third quarter U.C.C. dominated the baskets both defensively and offensively, but because of erratic shooting, they added only 5 points, to make the score 18-10 in favour of T.C.S. In the fourth quarter T.C.S. dominated the court by limiting U.C.C. to 5 points. With some distant shooting Middleside added 7 points to push their total to 25, against 15 for the Blue and White. Turcot was high scorer for T.C.S.. netting 10 points. MIDDLESIDE vs. S.A.C. At S.A.C. February 16 Lost 81-26 Middleside faced a superior S.A.C. team but nevertheless they fought well and played one of their better games of the season. Middle- side was outplayed in the first quarter, except near the end where they seemed to hold their own. The quarter ended 20-5 for S.A.C. In the second quarter we played as a team but at the half the taller S.A.C. led 33-12. In the third quarter Middleside rebounded well and pressed hard. The score at three-quarter time was 50-21 for S.A.C. Middleside, al-- though easily outplayed in the final quarter, fought well, never giving up. S.A.C. netted a very creditable 31 points to win by a score of 81-26. Hew Elcock was Middleside's high scorer with 8 points. IVIIDDLESIDE vs. U.C.C. At Toronto February 23 Won 46-23 After a one-point loss to Appleby, Middleside went into this, their second game against Upper Canada, determined to win. T.C.S. jumped into an early lead and slowly built up the margin to 10-5 at quarter- time. U.C.C. was stymied by a tight Trinity man-to-man defence which they could not pierce. However by halfway through the second quar- ter our defences fell apart and only because of some exceptional shoot- ing by Kayler were we able to maintain a 26-17 lead by half-time. In the third quarter T.C.S.'s first line led by McDonald scored fre-- quently and at the end of the quarter had more than doubled U.C.C.'s output, 37-18. In the final quarter, we kept up the pace to make the final score 46-23. This was one of Middleside's best games to date and a well-deserved victory. IVIIDDLESIDE vs. RIDLEY .Xt St. Catharines February 26 Lost 76-18 ln this, their final L.B.F. game of the season, Middleside came up against taller, more experienced opponents. Ridley were at first thwarted hy our man-to-man defense, but soon were able to master it. At the endiof the first quarter, the score stood 23-2 for Ridley. T.C.S.'s lack of alnhty in generating an offense, plus Ridley's control of the backboards, proved to law our downfall in the second quarter, as the team seemed to become demoralized and fall apart. Going into the second half with a 43-5 score against them, Middle- 4 TRINITY COl.l,l'lGl'I SCHOOL lllilffllill 105 side played their best basketball in the third quarter. They switched to a tenacious zone defense and, led by Elcock, kept the scoring in that particular quarter down to 10-7 for Ridley. In the fourth quarter ltid- ley broke the zone with outside shooting. As a result 'l'.C'.S. fell apart. completely, and Ridley went on to win 76-18. Mcllonald ancl Elcock were our high scorers with 8 and 7 points respectively. lt was a well- deserved victory for B.R.C'., but a disappointing way for Middleside to end their L.B.F. season. Ll'I"l'IiE.'IIiIl llASIlll'lllALli Captain's Report This year's Littleside enjoyed a fairly successful season. We had height in the form of Lambert, Gregg and Morley, and some experience but unfortunately we lacked depth. This was shown when members of the first line fouled out in the close games. This lack of depth, though. was made up for by team spirit. Everyone felt like a member of the team and became at least emotionally involved in the games. I would like to thank Mr. Heard for his coaching. This year he was coaching two teams, and we are grateful to him for taking time off from Bigside to help Littleside develop. -Rob Bell Littleside Basketball Summary Won: 6 Lost: 5 Littleside vs. Port Hope Lost 31-32 Littleside vs. de la Salle Won 26-15 Littleside vs. Bathurst Lost 17-20 LittQeside vs. U.C.C.

The second half went on to show more ball handling by both teams. By the end of the game, Littleside had compiled 50 points to U.C.C.'s 29. However, regardless of the score, this was a good game and both teams showed potential for future Bigside teams. Bell was high scorer for TCS. with 16 points, followed by Morley who netted 10. LITTLESIDE vs. S.A.C. At Aurora. February 16 Lost 40-28 Littleside went into the game with hopes of winning their second l..l-LF. game of the season, against a taller S.A.C. team. At the start, St. Anflrew's jumped into the lead. But T.C.S., after reorganizing, came up to within two points at quarter time. Then S.A.C., with the same good ontsiile shooting and rebounding at both ends of the court pulled ahead to :i 22-lti lead at half-time. ln thi- sei-oncl half, Littleside faltered and could not recover. Its rf-bounding was weak, and as a result S.A.C. was able to pull away and was the victor by a score of 40-28. Lambert led T.C.S. scoring with IH points while llell was second with 6 points. 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 107 LITTLESIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope February 23 Won 70-46 In this second game between both teams, Littleside again domi- nated the play against the smaller and younger U.C.C. team. In the first quarter Littleside displayed superior ball handling and alertness to bounce into a 14-4 lead. The second quarter was evenly matched, both teams shooting and playing well to make the score 28-18 at the half. Littleside came bounding back in the third quarter with aggressive playing and a full court press. This seemed to work well enough as the score jumped to 54-23 at the end of the quarter. Littleside seemed to slack off a little in the fourth quarter but managed an easy 70-46 win. High scorers for Trinity were Rob Bell with 15 points and Steve Morley with 13 points. This was a fast, clean game and it was a pleasure to watch both teams display such good sportsmanship. l lllllll ll -Ma rrett Captain's Report First and foremost I would like to express on behalf of the team our thanks to Mr. Kirkpatrick who gave invaluable assistance all dur- ing the season and whose patience and cheerfulness never lagged even during the most trying times. I would also like to thank the assistant captain Karl Scott who was not only a reliable and strong swimmer but one who gave great assistance and support to the team. Pointwise we do not have much to show. This year we were not a team for individuals but one that combined its efforts and skills. It was because of this and some very determined work that the team was able to pull off two close and exciting victories at the end of the season. With the majority of the team returning next year and with the same rate of improvement we should be guaranteed more point success. We will miss those not returningg special mention should be given to Jim Sedgewick, a fellow who always kept us in high spirits even when Burley Bus Lines broke down three times and was an hour late the fourth time. And who can forget Eric Machum's love letter which nearly 108 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD drove us all from the table - Sedgewick's love for Individual Medleys - Scottit-'s lkirourite stroke. the hundred Butterfly - and last but not least, the tasanovas llaig and,Kentg the one who lost his ring and the other his money phoning O.I,.C.'? -Bob Clarke Remarks on the Season Rather than describe each meet. we felt that it would be better to explain to the public the scoring of a swim meet and thus give some explanation for the scores that are set before you. A swim meet is scored on a basis of five points for first place, three tor second, and one for third. Relays count as seven points for the winners and zero for the loser. There are two relays in a swim meet, one Freestyle, and one containing a representative from Freestyle, Back- stroke. Buttertly, and Breaststroke. In at least seven out ol' nine of the meets, we lost by only half a body length in each relay, therefore yielding the fourteen points. If these fourteen points were added to our scores, one can easily see that we could have won a few more meets. Theret'ore, when you look at our record, look at the scores, but do not weigh them too heavily for they are not a completely accurate pic- ture ot' what was accomplished this season. Besides, they do look rather discouraging. We seemed to accelerate in the last two meets against U.C.C. and THE SENIOR SWIMMING TEAM Hack ltov.. l to Ii- R. M. Kirkpatrick, Esq., Ccoachb, R. B.

In gymnastics, more so than in most other sports, the harder you work, the better you get. On the other hand, in a sport like football or hockey, it becomes increasingly difficult to improve beyond a certain point. Closely linked with how hard one works is desire - desire to imp1'ove faster than one's fellow gymnasts. Unity, too, is important. No body of people can work together to the best of its capability with- out being a homogeneous unit. But most important in gymnastics is having the right frame of mind both in practices and meets. It is a natural tendency for anyone to stand around, doing nothing constructive. for nearly the whole of the forty-five minutes of practice time. And so, to combat this tendency, a gymnast must set a goal for himself, such as learning one new movement every day. A good gymnast must have the "can do" attitude. It will do him no good to think of all the ways he can hurt himself - this only increases his chances. For a team to be successful, its members must practice their routines. Since gym- nastics is a sport of split-second precision timing, the gymnast has to be in top mental and physical shape. True, this all takes time - more than just three quarters of an hour per day, and until the new gymnasium is built, time in the after- noon Will be rigidly limited. However, the gym is available in the even- ing and it was very gratifying to see that many made use of it. After losing three of the four full Bigside colours from last year, it appeared from the beginning that our biggest job would be one of re-building. Steve Hall, undoubtedly this year's most improved gymnast. filled in very well on all apparatus and won his Bigside Colours. Joel Wright improved tremendously on pommels to place third in O.F.S.A.A. at the end of the season. Charlie Barrett was strong on both pommels and free calisthenics and, like Hall, won his first-team colours. Duncan Scott worked hard on parallels, which paid him dividends in the Monarch Park meet, and Colin Henderson, with a little more work, will have good routines on all apparatus, not only on pommels. Carey Leonard, too, has done an excellent job on all apparatus, especially high-bar, in his first year doing gymnastics. But what would the team have done without its faithful coach, Mr. Armstrong? Mr. Armstrong has been coaching gymnastics ever since the sport began in Canada - well, nearly. He has seen good teams and bad ones - good gymnasts and poor gymnastsg we hope he will re- member this year's team as well as we will remember how he inspired in every gymnast the will to improve. -John Kortright Gymnastics 1966 The season was kicked off when P.C.V.S. came down to compete. two weeks after the beginning of term. Tom Kinsman from Peterborough won easily on all apparatus except high bar, on which he came second. John Kortright captured the first on high bar and placed second to Kins- man in the other apparatus. Trinity displayed its greater depth, sweep- ing all the third place positions - Henderson on horizontal - Hall on 112 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD ' 1-ve ' THE SENIOR GYM TEAM Leh to iight D. H.

Duncan Scott took a first in both horizontal and parallels. David Ross placed first on pommels, and second on free calisthenics, and David Esdaile took a first, second, and third in vault- ing, pommels and parallels respectively. Other third place finishers were Leonard on horizontal and Armstrong on pommels. Again T.C.S. showed greater depth, and won by a considerable margin. The third meet of the season took place at Western Tech in Toronto. We were pleased to see, in addition to our hosts, Mr. Phippen and his team from Appleby. Kortright took first place all round, Winning horizontal. parallels, and the vault, and coming second on free calis- thenics. Steve Hall was third all round, with a second on high bar, Closely followed by Esdaile who came first on free calisthenics and third on horizontal. Vharlie Barrett picked up a first on pommels, and David Ross ei third on the same apparatus. Thus Trinity won again, this time lllC'l'C2lHlll,L" fhe winning margin to sixteen points. A wf-1-lag later, the team went back to Western Tech for a repeat performanf 1-. .X lot of credit must be given to Western for the improve- merit UWB' Hfliffwerl. even in one week, but Trinity, with a good deal stronger team. had little trouble defeating their less experienced opponents. U Two days 'lfff-r mid-term, we did something T.C.S. hasn't done for fllllfff Sonic time persuaded another L.B.F. school to have a competi- l 1 I f l l TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 113 tion with us. Although S.A.t'. was inexperienced, we found that the Doys were extremely keen to leirn and we look forward to competition with them in the future. Up to this point in the season, we had won all our meets - and even surprised ourselves on some occasions. The team, in just over a month, had improved a great deal. Thus, going into our own 'l'.t'.S. ln- vitational Meet, we were fairly confident of doing well, and yet, at the same time, a little apprehensive ol' the more experienced Glehe team whose complete squad from last year had returned. Nine schools com- peted and placed in the following order: Glelme. T.C'.S., IJ. M. Thompson Collegiate, Monarch Park, Richview Collegiate, Jarvis, Western Tech., P.C.V.S. and Appleby. John Kortright placed third all round with a first on high bar and a second on parallels. Charlie Barrett did an excellent 1'OlltIl19 to tie for first on pommels, and Colin llenderson is to be congratulated for placing third on the same apparatus. Our other competitors on pommels, Joel Wright and Dave Ross, came sixth and eighth respectively to give us a first place on that individual apparatus, Steve Hall did no outstanding routine to place, but had a good all round Score, worthy of mention. Dave Esdaile, too, did a good vault to place sixth. A week later, the weekend we had been looking forward to all season arrived. On Friday, February 25th, the teams, both senior and junior, boarded the train for Ottawa for the traditional Glehe Invita- tional Meet to be held the next day. The Juniors lost in a dual meet, and the Senior team placed second to Glebe. The five teams competing placed in the following order: Glebe, T.C.S., Hillcrest, Kingston Col- ,J .. , ..,. .

In their home gym, Glebe held a consider- able lead over the other three teams, and dominated most of the first three positions on each apparatus. John Kortright still managed to take first olace on the high-bar for the second year in a row, as well as a fourth on parallels and a sixth in vaulting. Charlie Barrett pulled through with a third place in free calisthenics and tied with Colin Hen- dersou for fifth place in the vault. By Sunday evening, the team was back in Port IIope - a little lacking in sleep from the weekendis exer- tions! On March second, the Junior team competed at Appleby against Western Tech, Appleby, and P.C.V.S. We placed third to the older Western Tech and Appleby teams. Nevertheless, we came up with some good routines - David Ross won the pommel horse event, and was closely followed by Carey Leonard and Tom Wilkes, who placed second and fourth respectively. Leonard also placed second on high bar, and Ross was fifth on free calisthenics. John Wootton did a good routine to place fifth on parallels. Meanwhile, the Senior Team settled down after the Glebe meet to a concentrated effort to improve routines before the Ontario Champion- ships two weeks later. Ten teams competed in the Championships held in the Port Hope High School gym. CA couple of teams could not make it because of the icy conditions of the roads.J As expected, Bawating from Sault Ste. Marie had a very strong team and they won the meet handily. Glebe placed second, and Trinity placed third for the second year in a row. The remaining teams placed in the following order: P.C.V.S., Hillcrest, York Memorial, Jarvis, Appleby, Parkside, and Hamilton Central. John Kortright placed a close second on both parallels and horizontal bar, while Joel Wright, who improved immeasur- ably over the season, placed third on pommels. John Kortright placed third all round and Steve Hall, another person who improved a lot throughout the season, placed seventh all round, with a sixth place on both vaulting and parallels and a tenth on horizontal bar. Carey Leon- ard, who came eleventh on high bar, deserves a lot of credit too for the improvement he has made in his first year of gymnastics. Usually the Ontario Championships are both the climax and the end of the season. This year they were certainly the climax but not the end as we found we had to defend the Monarch Park Invitational Trophy which we had won last year. The team pulled through in fine form to win the meet. Joel Wright took first place in pommels and Colin Henderson placed third. John Kortright placed first on high bar and tied for first place on parallels with Duncan Scott. Steve Hall did a fine routine on both high bar and rings to place third on both apparatus. Trinity proved they were without doubt the strongest team as they downed the three other competitors, Jarvis, Monarch Park, and Western Tech, by a considerable margin. Thus ended another season and, as usual, a successful one.

More important is what one learns, and this year every member of the team learned a tremendous amount. This year's team was very young and inexperienced but through the help of such teams as the Toronto Cricket Club, the Alpha Delts and D'Arcy Martin's team from the University of Toronto, the boys matured into fine young men as well as good squash players. Tremendous improve- ment was noticed throughout the year in Doug Segal, Art Kaminis and Bob Ramsay, who dominated the top three positions. John McCallum and John Carsley showed the spirit and drive needed on a winning team, which will be most useful for the coming year. Nick Cabell, at times falling into a depressing slump during the season, came back to play excellent squash in the Little Big Four Championships, and later to Win the School Squash Tournament. Not only was the spirit of the team found in the top six players but throughout the whole squad of twenty-four boys. The juniors, led by John Molson and John Barker, played in four tournaments through- out the year. The team had a fifty percent season, defeating Appleby twice and losing to Upper Canada and Ridley College. Travelling to Ridley is always a valuable experience, as the boys get to play in ex- cellent courts against excellent competition. It can be Said the only place the team can go is up, and with five of the seniors returning one can look forward to a very successful season next year. -Harvey Southam llti TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD llxliihition Mateilles Prior to the season, we saw little hope of even winning a match. For none ol' us were in Sixth Form, and none of us had played in any svliool niatrlios lmefore, let alone the L.B.F. Our first exhibition matches saw us solidly trounced by U.C.C. and tho t'i-it-ket Vinh. On January 29 we played some Old Boys from the Lonilon t'rirkot Vluh. We lost 3-2, but this marked the start of a vast lift in spirit and quality oi' play throughout the team. We Weren't so lrail after all! We could win matches. The following Week we defeated an lllt'XD0l'lL'llL'Qtl Appleby team 10-1. We played D'Arcy's gang twice more. lluring the season and through our persistent coaching we improved great ly. Our big night prior to the L.B.F. occurred when we tied U. of T. T-7.

This year's team was very young and three of them will be back for two more years. This was little consolation however, when they fought for survival against the Ridley "tigers", who had come into the tournament as heavy favourites. We failed to win a match against them and thereafter our main aim was to try and take U.C.C., whose team was, like ours, far from strong this year. Things looked bright at lunch when the score was Ridley 6, T.C.S. 2, U.C.C. 1, but we lost our two remaining games in the afternoon to qualify for the "wooden spoon" for the second year in a row. The tenacity of Bob Ramsay and Art Kaminis at 1 and 2 were a great credit to the School, although they both lost their matches. Doug Segal at 3 finally fulfilled the latent ability he had shown earlier this year by winning his U.C.C. match. Nick Cabell had shown many moody traits in an erratic performance all year, but in his performance here he steadied down admirably to give both his opponents a very hard time. John McCallum beat his U.C.C. opponent by dint of a good length and great patience, rare virtues at number 5! We look forward next year to much better results, which are in- evitable if the top boys play with as much drive as they did this year. They made vast strides throughout the year and will surely make their presence felt. We all wish Vic Harding and Doug Lamb, the Ridley and U.C.C. captains, respective success in their future endeavours. We shall view their departure with mixed feelings. .1 ' in . as n ,,.

The Choir Trip To Montreal On the morning of Saturday, March 12th, the Choir left for St. James the Apostle, a well-known church in Montreal. The Choir was accompanied by the Chaplain, the Reverend B. J. Baker and Mrs. Baker, Mrs. L. G. P. Montizambert, the Choir mother, and Mr. E. Cohu, the Choirmaster. At five o'clock the Choir arrived in Central Station and dispersed in the company of their hosts and hostesses. The Senior Choirboys spent the evening enjoying a party at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Robert H. Smith in Westmount. Boulden House boys went to the Forum to see the game between Montreal and Detroit. It was Port Hope Night at the Forum, and Jim Roberts, a local sports hero, scored twice in the space of a few minutes. On Sunday morning, the Choir assembled at the Church for a brief rehearsal. The Headmaster and Mrs. Scott arrived in time for the service in spite of travelling delays in Toronto. Singing to a full Church of between six and seven hundred people, both the boys and their Choirmaster felt that the service was a great success. The Headmaster read the First Lesson, and the Second Lesson was read by Christopher Currelly, the Head Choirboyg Michael Marshall was the Crucifer. The Reverend H. St. C. Hilchey, the Rector of St. James, preached the sermon. During the reception for the Choir, held in the Parish Hall, many com- pliments were received from the congregation. The train departed from Montreal at five o'clock, to end a happy week-end. Our thanks to all who kept boys in their homes or helped in the organization of the trip, especially to Mrs. L. P. Kent of the Montreal Ladies' Guild, and to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Smith. -W. P. Molson. IIAU The Visit To The Toronto Art Gallery To View The Mondrian Art Exhibition On Wednesday, March 9th, about sixty boys from grades 8 and 9 travelled to Toronto to see the Mondrian Art Exhibition. By the time the visit was over we had walked around the Toronto Art Gallery for over an hour, and everybody was glad to stagger into the bus for the return trip to Boulden House. The change in artistic development from Mondrian's early land- scapes to his mathematically constructed grid abstracts was most in- teresting. At the beginning of his career he was greatly influenced by the French impressionists, especially Pizzaro. Because he was Dutch. he painted many windmills, and these were often painted without de- tail and intended as symbols. He also used water to create a reflection and to make a strong horizontal dividing line in his pictures. As well as 122 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the horizontal line, he also used a vertical line, and the two were com- bined to indicate religious ideas of beauty within beauty. Just before he turned to abstract he used "phobism", the use of pure splotches of solid colour. llis first abstracts were of the cubist variety. Cubism is the r--presentation of all views of a three dimensional object on canvas. Then he wi-nt on to paint bigger and smaller squares, thicker and thin- ner black lines and different colours. He occasionally used a mathe- matical grid. After moving to London and then to New York, he be- gan to use primary colours for lines, and these became more and more involved until reaching a climax in "Broadway Boogie Woogie". This was a mass of various colours and was supposed to represent the feeling of jazz music, but I think few people besides the artists themselves understand abstract. -R.

I like the way it looks in the early morning, when I am driven to school over the deserted, silent road. It curls up in wisps before me, and moves aside languidly as the car pushes through the mist. Even though it is a hazard to ships and aero- planes, fog has never harmed me. One moment I am looking at a blank wall of white, and in another I am in the middle of it. its wisps hiding me, and then curling aside to let me pass. It is as if I were a king, and the wisps of mist my courtiers, bowing to me as I pass down a hall to my throne. -D. R. Vair, IIAU Family Dialogue lk-te and Frank tumbled into their father's den and hastily ex- plained their urgent desire for the family car. Father looked up from his newspaper, his brown eyes twinkling, and his face creased into a Slrin. Ili- slowly searched his pocket for a coin. Frank saw through this, and iniaginecl that the fate of his precious date hung with the coin. "Fatherf" he cried earnestly, "you can't flip a coin! If I don't get the car to-night -he'd never forgive me. This date means a lot to me, Father. Yffll wouldn't let a runt take responsibility for the car, would you." 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 123 "Sure he would!" yelled Pete defensively, "I can drive as well as you!" The two brothers looked at each other and then they both turned to their father. "Well?" they chorused. The lines on Father's face betrayed a quizzical smile. Ile was about to speak when Mother hurried into the room. She was wearing a party dress lined in green velvet. The back zipper was partly undone. "Peter", she said, "come here and do your mother's zipper up." Dumbfounded he obeyed, and looked into his father's eyes. Father dropped his eyes, not meeting his son's astonished glare. He was chuck- ling to himself again. "Come Norman", mother pleaded, "or we shall be late." Father slid from his chair and walked to the door. Peter stammered uneasily, "Father what is all . . .?" He was cut off by his brother Frank, "Dad, I don't get it," he pleaded, "explain please." Father grinned and replied, "Your mother and I are going out." With that he dug his hand into his pocket, brought out a shiny coin, and flipped it to Frank. .Father closed the door behind him, leaving the two boys in silence. -P. F. Wilkes, IIAU Cleaning The Attic It was one of those rainy days when you can't go outside and there is nothing to do. I had just received a scolding from my mother and she had told me to go up and clean the attic. As I was climbing the old wooden stairs I heard her voice, "Put a jacket on, it's cold and draughty up there". I put on my heavy wool jacket and slowly trudged up. As I opened the heavy oak door I heard the mice run into their holes. I turned on the lights and started to move the old furniture so that I could sweep. Near the end of the long attic I spied an old brass hinged chest and in a few moments I had opened it. I found a few blankets inside, which I sat upon. There were also a few pieces of old jewellery. As I sat there I began to polish them. Before I had finished polishing a large gold pin I was transported to another place. The pin was magic! There were people screaming and running past me. In the distance stood a huge white castle which glittered in the sun. I could hear the sound of horses in the distance, but I paid no attention to it, and started to Walk along the road to see where I was. The galloping horses sounded louder and louder and soon I was surrounded by mounted knights. They must have thought I was an enemy because of my strange clothes. I was bound and taken to the castle torture chamber deep in the dungeons. I tried to explain who I was, but they spoke a different language. I was soon chained to the ground and learned my fate. A huge grey elephant trudged slowly towards me. I was to be crushed. Slowly but surely it came. I was sweating and I strained to free myself. The animal was lumbering closer and closer. Soon it would step on my legs: I screamed in anticipation, and woke up. A mouse, sitting on my leg, jumped and ran for its hole. I hurriedly put the blankets and 124 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD jewellery back in the chest and went downstairs. I would not return to the attic for some time. -R. J. Barron, IIA1 Barber Shops I hate barber shops. Getting my hair cut is the one thing I dread. After I have seated myself upon the leather upholstered chair, the bar- ber ties a cloth around my neck, imprisoning me. I gasp and choke, because the barber has tied the cloth too tightly, he then loosens it, and the freshly cut hair falls down my back, causing an irritating itch. After a few minutes of enduring the b3.I'bG1',S tonsorial artistry, one of two things happens. I get a tickle in my nose which forces me to blow my nose or sneeze. Excusing myself, I fish under the cloth for a handkerchief, while the barber glances impatiently at the many waiting customers. The other and far worse thing occurs when I get some hair in my eye. This causes my eye to water profusely. and fur- ther raises the barber's ire. He cannot continue until I daub with kleenex and remove the offending hair. At last he has finished, but there is a further delay while I turn out my pockets in a frantic search for the correct change with which to pay the barber. He cannot change my proffered bill and he has to dash to the corner store while the customers multiply. At last our transaction is complete and I rather doubt that he looks forward to my return. -N. B. Grandfield. IIAU Thoughts A1 The Art Gallery Hmmmm! Here we are at the Art Gallery. Must be a pretty good tour if it's going to cost me fifty cents! Single file? Yeah, of course we want a tour!

Collins, IIB1 0 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 125 Winter Scene Gaining the top of the mountain trail, I paused for a short while. but that winter scene was breathtaking and sank deep into my memory. It was early morning, perhaps an hour past dawng the crisp cold pinched my face, but I hardly noticed it. Looking out into that valley, a mile below me, the world seemed at my feet, yet I felt small and unnoticed atop my mountain perch. It was snowing lightly, the soft fleecy flakes falling like a multitude of fairies. The valley was blanketed in snow. The rooftops of the farmhouses and little hamlets stood out like blotches of ink on a white sheet. The huge evergreens stood proudly, clad in frosty whiteness, and boasting of their majestic beauty. The smaller trees were so covered with snow that they looked like little stumps under a fluffy blanket. Nothing stirred, life in the valley had not yet awakened. All that could be heard was the chirping chatter of some chickadees. I was deeply impressed by the solemn magnificence of nature during winter. -D. Boucher. IIB2 The Mountain I gazed at the mountain, it stood like Atlas, holding up the sky. The dark green forest at the base of the mountain bristled like needles, ready to repel intruders. The fortress, a dark gloomy grey, loomed above. Then stretching for another three thousand feet up, a glacier lay in a gigantic crevasse amidst boulders and fragments of rock. Still higher up, huge intricate shapes were carved into the face of the cold grey rockg then reaching into the sky was the most magnificent part of all, the jagged peak of the mountaing the patches of snow on it glistened like diamonds in the sung wisps of clouds sailed in the cold blue air. But the splendour was short lived, for a large rain cloud covered the mountain, and in a matter of minutes it was obscured from sight in torrents of rain. -F. O. Hampson. IIB1 Spring The dark branches of the evergreen trees were sagging to the snow covered ground. The little buds on the bare maples were starting to open up. Under the branches, standing by a graceful doe, was a little spotted fawn. As the sun came over the horizon, the birds sangs their bright, peppy little songs. The ice was breaking up on the brook where a raccoon was sitting washing his food, with his furry tail around him to protect him from the light, cool breeze. A mouse came out of his hole in the snow, scurried across the ice, quickly dug another one and disappeared. Behind him he left dainty little foot prints with a line made by his long narrow tail. As the day warmed, and as the ice and snow melted, more and more animals came out from their hibernation places. -R. G. Ward. IIB1 125 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD lllllllilllllll llllllill llllllKllY lt would be difficult to think of our Season as successful in terms of a win-loss record, however, not all of a team's accomplishments may be read on the scoreboard. We were successful in achieving a high level of athletic keenness, good sportsmanship and desire to improve, that any rival could envy. We lost through lack of experience and ability, but never through lack of effort. With a favourable proportion of "old colours" to form the nucleus of next year's team, we can look forward to another enjoyable Season. SH HOME GAMES January 25th. T.C.S. vs. Lakefield Lakefield 3, T.C.S. There was not much action in the first period, apart from a few penalties being awarded to both teams. Each team scored once in the second period, Rogers got the T.C.S. goal. In the third period Bell scored twice, and so did Lakefield. This was an exciting game, with a total of ten penalties being awarded. February Znd. T.C.S. vs. Ridley Ridley 5. T.C.S. fl. Ridley scored in the first period. The visiting team was bigger and their passing superb. They scored three times in the second period, and once in the last. Few penalties were awarded. The opposing team had forty-seven shots on the T.C.S. goal and C. S. Archibald was con- gratulated for his work in goal. Vvbfllllfy 3lh- T.C.S. Appleby Appleby 5, T.C.S. Appleby maintained a slight edge over T.C.S., scoring three times in the first period. Momentarily catching fire, Rogers and Jack scored for T.f'.S.. and before the second period had ended Appleby scored once. Appleby got one more goal in the final period. It was a hard fought game, nine penalties being awarded. TRINITY COLLICGIC SCHOOL IQICVUIQIJ 128 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD February llith. T.C.S. vs. St. Andrew's S.A.C. 4, T.C.S. 2. The game was very fast moving, with good competition against a slightly bigger team. Early in the first period S.A.C. scored. After Rogers tied up the game 1-1, Appleby scored twice within five minutes. In the third period, Rogers scored again, but S.A.C. put a final goal in the net before the game ended. Although T.C.S. had more shots on the visitors' goal, the S.A.C. team displayed great skill, which resulted in an action-packed game. -W. P. Molson, IIAU AWAY GAMES T.C.S. played Upper Canada College on February 26th on the out- door rink and lost 7-1. T.C.S. started slowly and Upper Canada were ahead 3-0 before Keefer scored the only T.C.S. goal. T.C.S. played Bishop Ridley College at Varsity Arena and lost the game 5-1, although it was much closer than the score indicated. At the end of the first period Ridley was ahead 1-0. Both teams scored in the second period, Rogers scoring our only goal. Ridley scored three more goals in the final period. T.C.S. tied Lakefield 3-3 at Lakefield. There was no score at the end of the first period and both teams scored in the second period. Keefer scored the T.C.S. goal. In the third period T.C.S. gained consid- erable ground when Steer scored two goals, but with only a few minutes remaining Lakefield managed to tie up the game. -N. B. Grandfield, IIAU Squad House Game March 4th. Rigby 2, Orchard 4. Near the end of the second period, Bell scored for Orchard: then early in the third period Keefer scored for Rigby. After a deflection by Grandfield for Orchard, Keefer again scored. In the third period Steer and White scored for Orchard. This fast and exciting game was cheered by all the non-playing members of the two houses. We must commend J. R. Doyle for his excellent work in goal for Rigby. -W. P. Molson.

Both the Red Wings and the Black Hawks played well but lost many games by only 1 goal in the dying seconds of a game. Reasonable goal tending and an excellent passing attack finally produced a winner, Tom Rich- ards and his Bruins. This was without doubt one of the best S.lI.L.'s we have had for some time. Much credit must go to all players for their good hockey and sportsmanship throughout the season. Thanks also are due to W. Molson for being our scorer. S.H.L.

Neil Campbell wrote to say he was interested in the canoe trips men- tioned in the News and went on to say "As a senior councillor at Birnie Hodgetts' camp fHurontarioJ, I was in charge of a group of about 20 boys on a two-week canoe trip in the Lake Windermere area, west of Chapleau. Most of the region was 'lumbered' by the Austin Lumber Co., and I had occasion to meet Mr. Bill Austin, the past-President and owner of the Company, who maintains a cottage on the lake. While the boys fished for dinner fpike and bassb, I had a long and very en- joyable chat with Mr. Austin and his charming wife. During the course of the conversation it came to light that they were the parents of Jim Austin and, I think, the uncle and aunt of Bill Austin - in any case closely connected to all the 'Bunny' Austins who attended T.C.S." 1963 Ceri Hugill, third year McGill, is also a swimming instructor and ex- aminer. 1964 Wayne Kinnear has been elected Public Relations Officer of the Student 1965 Society of Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, B.C.

Because it goes on within a boy. Your son, perhaps. You may not notice the change at first. But under- neath you will find that his associations here-among his T.C.S. companions and especially with the masters-are introducing him in a practical way to the values of goodness, truth, honour, loyalty, self-control and hard work. On the playing field and in the class- room, T.C.S. stresses character develop- ment within a disciplined community. A boy learns to think . . . and to act accordingly. This is indeed a school for "the whole boy". And the time to take up resi- dence is in the formative years-Boulden House for younger boys starts with Grade 6. If you are interested, or would like to have an informative brochure on T.C.S., write to the Headmaster, Angus C. Scott, M.A. I ini f 'ffflfigw School, Port Hope, Ontario- A distinctively Canadian school szncel865 DR. 0. M. SOLANDT PRICSICNTING i'IIE BRONZE MEDAL TO .I. G. BINCII The Head Preihecfs Address There are a few things I would like to mention in passing before everyone here disperses for an- other year. I might ask the Leav- ing Class to kiss Miss Pat Sharpe farewell, but, there are, I think. more important matters. As Head Prefect this year, I gained a further insight into the running of the School, as well as a deeper understanding of leader- ship and human nature. The suc- cess of the 1965-66 academic year was not due to any one individual. but rather to all people concerned in any way. shape or form with the School. Since this was the I01st year, I thoroughly expected it to be somewhat anticlimactic, in comparison to last year. However. much to my surprise, and my de- light, this was not so. The boys seemed to realise that this was the same as any other year, and acted accordingly. At no time did there seem to be a lack of effort, simply because it was not the Centennial. This year the School was on dis- play as much, if not more, than last year. It started with the Guard of Honour, then the Grey Pup, hockey in Princeton and Uti- ca, debating and the Choir in Mon- treal, and. of course, Inspection Day. Throughout the boys han- dled themselves extremely well and as a result, the T.C.S. name and reputation were made known to even more Canadians and Am- ericans. But nothing is always as rosy as I have pictured it to be, unfor- tunately! A school, like every- thing else in life, cannot stand still. First, what is a school? Is it the buildings, the boys. the masters? No . . ., it is no one of these . . . it is all of them to- gether. In order for there to be a good school, there must be good boys, there must be good Masters, and to a certain extent, there must be good facilities. This brings to mind the new Develop- ment Plan, already mentioned by Mr. Scott and the Vhairman. In order to maintain modern facili- ties, and in order to compete with the facilities 411 high schools, we must krep alireast. For these reasons, and many others, the boys ot' the School are extremely pleased with the decision to go z1hr11d as souil as possible with the IILXN' l111ildi11gs. Uonsidering this 1l-.vcl11p111e11t, so too must we con- tinue to attract new boys, boys who wish to come, for a School such as Ulll'S offers too much for the opportunity to be spoiled. I Wtillltl now like to pay tribute in a group of men who receive little praise, but who are, in fact, responsible to a large extent for the success ot' each year. More important still, they are charged with the responsibility of what we learn, and how we learn it. The men of whom I am speaking are of course, the Masters. It seems a shame to me that in or- der for them to be recognised, they have to leave the School af- ter Iord knows how many years. The Masters deserve praise every year for the tremendous tasks that they carry out: they teach, they guide. they coach, they spend their free time supervising clubs as well as sundry other jobs. I would venture to say that there are few of us today who can boast such a busy curriculum. And to those who are leaving, we pay even greater tribute, for, in losing a Master, we are losing stalwart pillars of the School. I would like to address my last remarks to the boys of the School, both those leaving this year, and those who will be returning next year. As we progress individually, so must we progress in more im- portant aspects around the School. livwy year, new ideas should be hi-ought up. or a change made. llere - a warning! Do not 1-hzuige merely for the sake of l'll2lll'J'n1 the only grounds on which p1'11,.f1'ess can be measured in changes, if if those changes are he in-fittiiig s11z11e1111e or something. This is the job ot' the Prefect body. This year the Prefect body tried to make some improvements, as done in previous years. It is difficult to assess the success of these changes, but the group that follows next year can learn from our mistakes, as each following group must do. The past eight months have been happy, and for the most part, successful. But be- cause this was so is no reason to relax next year. Each and every one of us has a contribution to make to the School, and eventu- ally for the benefit of Canada, our young and growing nation. To my classmates, I would like to say that without them, this year could not have been the success that it has been. We have now com- pleted an era and we are entering another. The flower is just be- ginning to open, so to speakg a- head lies University. After that lies our future and the future of the country. Education is the means which we are using to pre- pare ourselves for this challenge and at T.C.S. we have had an in- comparable start. It would be a shame to let it go to waste. To those who will be at the School next year and in the years to come, I have only one word to say, "Don't waste your timeg you are enjoying an education that is unparalleled in the country!" In conclusion, I would like to mention one more person, the cog of our great wheel. Without him, the School would be as a chicken without its head, without him there would be no Sixth Form meetings, without him there would be no Half-Holidays. This is of course, Mr. Scott. As last year, this year would not have been nearly what it has been, had it not been for him. Everything that happens at T.C.S. is either a direct or indirect result of a de- cision by Mr. Scott, and Sir, each and every one of us is grateful for the constant guidance and assist- ance that you have given us. Thank you. -Jim Binch, Head Prefect 4 V ,Trinity College School Record l'UN'l'EN'l S The Head Pret'ect's Address Editorial The Church at T.C.S.

Editorial T.C.S. and The Wasp The winds of change are blowing on T.C.S. Or if they aren't, they should be. The change is being felt elsewhere, in the outside world, and if we do not bend with this, then our static bastion of tradition will be- come brittle, snap, and topple. But surely we do not wish even to content ourselves with merely billowing in the breeze. We can of course continue to survive if We force ourselves to become supple and malleable enough to absorb the changing climate of opinion. But more than just surviving, We want to set up a whirlwind nt' our own. Herein lies the paradox of a boarding school such as T.C.S. The capacity for outstanding endeavour and accomplishment lies so easily within our grasp, and often have we clasped it for a few brief moments. Yet so inany obstacles stand in the way of ultimately realizing this goal that sclilnn: liavt- we ever tapped our great potential to its limit. In fact these very olistiiwles are such an impediment that we must make constant 1 TRINITY C0l.l.I'IGI'I FCIIUUI. IIICCUIIIJ 5 efforts to avoid total regression. Positive forward steps can only be the result of dedicated liberal thinking. Perhaps this is the tragedy of an established boarding school: con- servatism and complacency. I say tragedy, for in many ways these quali- ties are intrinsic and unavoidable. The very basis upon which such a system of education is founded reflects this. We are beginning to hear much talk and criticism today about the previously sacrosanct domain of the "wasp" and of the "pompous Protestant". This hurts our pride. especially the pride of an institution like our own, which is totally im- mersed in established "waspdom". But we are going to receive more and more of this criticism - we have only seen the beginning. And if we succumb to the natural temptation, the easy way out, which is to with- draw within ourselves in arch-conservatism, and to console ourselves com- placently that we are still untouchably supreme, then we are surely doomed. The world will no longer tolerate such insular thinking. There can be no more crawling into a shell and hiding. We have come to the point in our development when we must stop and take a serious look around us. Now is the time for some searching self-criticism, now is the time for a little self-effacing humility. For we have not yet earned the smugness and self-satisfaction that we, as a society, now so often display. And if we had, then surely in our wisdom we would realize that it is this very tendency which heralds the imminent decline. We at the School are proud of our first one hundred years, and well we should be. Yet if in one hundred years' time we wish our descendants to be proud of the School's second century, then we today must stop wal- lowing in the glories of the first. We must turn our eyes away from the past, and look to the future. This is not to say that we must abandon tradition, for traditions used wisely can greatly enrich our lives. But we must never refuse to progress for the sake of preserving one of these shackling lines with the past. Before us today lie three immediate causes to look to the future: Canada's approaching Centennial, the School Development Plan, and the abandonment of Ontario Grade Thirteen. Each of these developments will open a door for T.C.S. to make a major contribution to Canadian society. This we have the potential to do, if we want to do it. It would seem that our flesh is willing but our spirit is weak. Now is our meaning plain. The fervour that is found in the boys of the School themselves, the spirit of liberalism and progress, must infect the whole T.C.S. family, from the Leaving Class of 1966 all the way to the Governing Body. This may take a number of years, a whole generation perhaps, to thoroughly saturate the School, and all connected with it, but when it happens, it will be a very exciting moment for T.f'.S. -,I.A.W.

THE PAT MOSS CAMP There is a more than tenuous connection between the Chapel and the Pat Moss Camp and so it is not unreasonable to devote this edition of the Chapel Notes to the Camp. The Camp, started by Dr. Ketchum, has been running for many summers now. The aim of the Camp is twofold, to provide some boys from the city with a week or two summer holidays out of doorsg to pro- vide some of the senior boys of the School with the privilege and the opportunity of working for and living with others less fortunate than themselves. Both parties benefit greatly from the exchange. One of the members of the School staff goes along to direct and, at times, to referee. The summer camp is held at the Pat Moss Ski Camp, an ideal location for such a venture. We eat and sleep at the Camp and venture forth each day to such places as Rice Lake, Peterborough, the Currelly Farm, the .Iames Farm, Presqu'ile Park, Trenton Air Station, Cobourg Beach. The Vamp costs amount to some S500 each year. The money for the Vamp is raised each year by a group of senior boys, much of it com- ing from the Pat Moss Fair. This fund raising is augmented quite hand- somely by the collection from the Speech Day Chapel service. This year over Slboll was raised, providing funds for capital improvements at the Ski Vamp as well as for the running of the Camp. This year's camp will be run from August 24 to September 2. Four- teen boys from two Toronto parishes will attend. Eight boys from the School will act as counsellors and the Chaplain will complete the picture. The Vzuml is commended to your prayers and concern. -B. J. B. NITY l'UI,l.I'IGl'I SCIIUUI. RICKY! CHOIR THE 'l'lllNl'I'Y ClJl.l,lCGlC SCHOOL RECORD nl SCHCOL NEWS DANCES 65-66 The character of the School changes from year to year, but there always seems to be one unifying constant which never varies: the desire to frateinize with our feminine counterparts. In an attempt to satiate this desire, there were five dances held at the School this year, perhaps an all-time record. The first of these was the Football Dance, held midway through the fall teim, after the Upper Canada game, and organized by John Kortright. With our own famous ensemble of the year before, the Ergs, now some- what defunct, this was a record-spinning dance, but with a number of the L'.C'.C. Stewards present the Dance was a good beginning. During the Christmas holidays we held what was perhaps our most exciting and significant dance of the year, the Centennial Dance. Con- ceived and organized almost entirely by the Head Prefect, Jim Binch, this dance must be considered a great success. It was held at the Granite Vluli, with music provided by the Whiskey Sours. But its most outstand- ing and unique characteristic was that to it were invited representatives froin werjc independent boys' school in Ontario, of which there are more than ten. We hope that this idea may take hold and act as the foundation im' whaf tfonld become an annual Independent Schools' Dance. Ali.-i' endless argument and disagreement, the date was finally set im- tha Wiiilf-i' Tea Dance as February 19. We discovered what an almost inipossililf- lIlSl'I it is to find a time when all the School teams are at home and Tllliw alle to attend, so that no sport feels unduly discriminated. il?-fillllil. li as at this dance that the School's newest group, the Free Spirits. l1d r .-Xnfly' liarnard, and including Henry Bull, Tom Zimmerman, Ste-ve flsll-i' .inf Hong Segal. made their first auspicious appearance. M-ecllf-ss rc i were well received and helped to make the dance a highly eiiifvmv '-iiiiiff 'l'hf- Sflifii-l held traditionally during the Easter holidays, and 'l'IlINl'l'Y t'tIl.l.l-ftllf Stllfltll. lllffllltll El SACRISTANS AND CRUCIFFRS held this year on April 1, has always been one of the highlights of the School year. Well over fifty couples were entertained this year by the excellent music of Dunc and the Deacons. The setting for this two-day fling was Italy, and the superlative decorations, including a fountain and an authentic pizzeria, were organized by Mike Marshall. Many said that this was the most successful School Dance ever held. lt was the first time in many years that every Prefect was present. The final Dance of the year. and this too is a tradition, was the Inspection Day Dance. Popular opinion within the School has decreed that this should not be a cadet uniform dance. and so we are perhaps the only school which does not have a formal cadet dance. Perhaps this helps to account for the tremendous success that it was. The music was pro- vided entirely by the Free Spirits. our own first-rate ensemble. and some- how their own happy nonchalance seemed to infect everyone present. Dave Mcfart, Harvey Southam, Keith Kennedy, and all who organized the evening are to be highly complimented on a great success. lt was a fine ending to a year of extremely enlioyalile dances. A COMMENT CN THE SECURWY COUNCH. The idea of holding a Model Securitj Vouncil zliosa fiom speculation inside the Senior Political Science Fluli as to some way ol' stimulating in- terest around the School in the field of contcinporary vxoiild affairs. The months of preparation preceding were filled with sporadic bursts ol' or- ganization, marked by confusion. chaos and doubt. and it was with con- siderable suiprise that the delegates found the result resembling the seat- ing arrangement - if nothing else - of the "real" Security Vouncil. Response from the School was NOT overwhelming, yet this could he ex- pected. owing to the lack of publicity, as well as some accurate 1'l.llNotll's that this was not to be a re-creation of a Roman orgy. Nevertheless. the benefits, if any, of the exercise were calculated to bless those participating rather than those viewing. With respect to these "benefits", it would be foolish to say that all 10 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the delegates came away with an expert's knowledge of current affairs and the workings of the Security Council. Yet some of the delegates came away with some knowledge of current affairs, and for this reason, il' for none other, it could be called a success. Certainly all the delegates and advisers came to realize that our present attempts at world-wide con- ciliation and mediation are painfully imperfect. It may just be that someone viewing the carnage of the Model Security Council will be seized iw a sudden, immediate desire to answer the questions raised in the course of its preparation. One of those questions certainly must be: Where will we find men with enough courage, compassion and understanding to face the increasing social and political problems of tomorrow's world? With enough interest in current affairs, an institution like T.C.S. might be the place where such men will be found. -Peter Grant, President, Model Security Council DEBATING: AN EPILOGUE After the overwhelming coverage given to the School Debating Pro- gramme in the April issue of The Record, the Debating Executive all got such swelled heads that they decided to rest on their laurels, and as a result all debating activity around the School ceased after Easter. Ac- tually, this is tradition, for it enables the boys of the School to begin preparations for their forthcoming examinations, without being disturbed by the constant blasts of hot air which are emitted from Osler Hall, while debating is in progress. This year can only be described as highly successful and extremely M'--+1-we . evil-1Q " , f""!ila::?i 1 sa mfs. - H " fl- 1 'A . . , -.J I-t x 4. 9 L- Q THE 'l'.C.S.

Beyond winning the Fulford Trophy, we received tremendous support from the School as a whole, and held an exciting series of llouse debates, as well as three other enjoyable home inter-school debates. Moreover, we once again held our own tournament and participated in another at McGill University. The only thing lacking, in fact, to com- plete the year was a Brent-Bethune llouse llebate, in which I-lrent was unable to participate for lack ot' three competent enough debaters factually, they won by defaultj. One thing, however, that was accomplished was the election of next year's Executive. They include: George Strathy, Ron Vlark. John Mathe- son, Henry Bull, Pat Little, John Carsley and John McC'allum. This election was held at the annual Debating party at the Lawson residence, at which time Mr. and Mrs. Lawson were given by the debaters a very useful kitchen utensil . . . an antique butter-bowl! On Speech Day, each L. B. F. debater was presented with a special prize donated by Mr. J. Wyburn Lawson, consisting of a paper weight with the debater's name engraved on a silver stud. In the April issue of The Record we spent so much time lavishing praise on our own heads that somehow there was a name left out: that of Mr. Lawson. Now Mr. Lawson hates gush, and so if we expressed our grati- tude as we truly feel it, it would only annoy him. The most we can say, indeed all we can say, both to him and to Mrs. Lawson, is that without them, there would be no such enthusiasm for debating at T.C.S. THE THIRD CENTENNIAL LECTURE Charles P. B. Taylor On Friday, May 6, Mr. Charles Taylor, an Old Boy and for some time the only newspaper correspondent from the Western Hemisphere in Com- munist China, delivered an inspiring address on China, its present system and its role as a world power. Mr. Taylor discussed the problem that present day Chinese leaders were faced with, when he related how the "Old Guard" and especially Mao-Tse-Tung were afraid that the revolutionary zeal of the original Com- munist struggle was wearing off. Many leaders feel that the younger generation is too soft and cannot maintain the enthusiasm for their cause because they have never starved and lived in caves while freeing their country from suppression. Neverthless, to the outsider or observer the dedication seems ap- parent enough - not only in their military training and highly organized demonstrations, but also with regard to the fact that couples are now marrying at a later age in order to prevent further population explosion. The opportunities for cultural activities, Mr. Taylor noted, were vast and although dotted with political propaganda the motivation of most Chinese seems to be very great. Mr. Taylor continued to say that Chinese propaganda is very subtle and it is often difficult to decipher its true meaning, even for an experienced observer. Although much litera- ture and most speeches are fiery propaganda, much reading between the lines is necessary. Thus Chinese diplomatists will over-emphasize their "cause", but no one really knows to what extent they reflect the policies of any one moment. The question was raised as to the difficulty in encouraging Com- munism in peoples of strong religious beliefs. either Taoism or Confu- cianlsm. The answer included the fact that most Chinese religious beliefs 12 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD entail very little thought of heaven or hell as a Christian knows it but that the "good" life required only living according to your conscience, and thus Mr. Taylor felt there was very little clash between Communistic principles and the lives of the ordinary inhabitants. A further question was raised as to whether the theory that China intended to take over the country and rural districts of the world first - li.e. the places where Communism flourishes most readilyj - and then toncentrate on the cities, was still valid. Mr. Taylor replied that this was still the contemporary theory but felt that as the standard of living rose and new generations developed that history's answer - a generation who cannot remember - would temper and moderate future policy much as it has in Russia. In conclusion it must be mentioned that Mr. Taylor made all of us much more acutely aware of a power, a neighbour, whom for too long we have known too little about. For his fine discourse we are very grateful, and the Record Staff only regrets that more copious notes were not taken at the time so a more complete record of his speech could be made . . . but then perhaps that is the sign of a brilliant speech, for if I remember correctly no notes were taken at Lincoln's Gettysburg Address! -J.

I admit that I am a bit of a penny-pincher, but I am not the odd-ball that she seems to think I am. What should I do? Veejay Dear Veejay: Your case is a classic example. It is obvious that you must be more lavish with your expenses: but at the same time you must be prudent enough not to go overboard. For example, next time, instead of going to her house for dinner and borrowing her parents' car, why not use your own means. You'd be surprised what a difference it will make.

FRIDAY Dear Smitty: First of all I'd like to apologize for the time you will waste in reading this letter. My problem is this: I have too much spare time on my hands, because I am not involved in enough outside activities. Besides, people tell me I am inconsiderate. What should I do? Martyr Dear Martyr: You must go out of your way to participate actively in more fields of endeavour. Although you may not succeed in many of these, at least you will have tried them. As for being inconsiderate, it is obvious that you must in future bend over backwards to do things for people. That should silence all the cynics.

Here are some suggestions: Learn to entertain people with a few simple imitationsg cultivate a sense of humourg associate with important peopleg pull a crazy stunt in class some dayg and above all, always be merry and gay. Good Luck, Ludi! Smitty Confidential to Goopy: I was most impressed by your kind letter and particularly by the way in which you stressed the vital importance of personal hygiene. However you would be amazed at the number of people completely unaware of the powers of a little bar of soap. It is indeed un- fortunate that there are not more people as fastidious as you. 114 vii 22 Confidential to Pudge: If you are always cranky and grouchy, no wonder people find it hard to get along with you. You must make a really conscientious effort to be friendly. 21 :lf SUNDAY Confidential to Skitch: Although your varicose veins will prevent you from ever achieving your ambition - running the mile in under eight minutes - you can learn to seek solace in less active fields: how about electronics?

He says I have often embarrassed him by horsing around at the wrong time. What should I do? Yamaha Dear Yamaha: You are indeed in a fix. You must certainly try to become more reserved, and pay more attention to keeping up an image. Try to be a bit more dour and pompous for a change. Smitty Pi: Ii!

Now it's not that they disagree with the content of what I have to say - that's not what they're complaining about at all. They just feel that I say it in Inu many words. I've done quite a bit of thinking about this, and have given the matter careful consideration for quite some time, and I've come to the conclusion that this is an unjust criticism. The fact of the matter is that once I get going, I just can't stopg but I don't think it is fair for people to eut me up for this. Let me give you several examples.

I.. Dyer. D.S.t'.. C.D., R.C.N. After an unusual disruption in the sequence of events for the Centennial Inspection Day last year, a more traditional programme was revived: ceremonial inspection and mai ch-past, followed by a demonstra- tion by the Band, House Competition and the Precision Squad. Due to the inclement weather, the gymnastics displays and speeches in the after- noon were relocated in the gym and shortened somewhat in length. Fears expressed by Cadet S L J. G. Binch that the calibre of this year's proceedings would not measure up to the remarkable proficiency of Inspection Day 1965, were stilled by Vice-Admiral llyer and by the Headmaster, who both commended the squadron on its continually super- lative standards and achievements. In point of fact. S I, I-linch repeatedly urged 398 Squadron to disregard the underlying current of opinion that 1966 would turn out to be somewhat of an anticlimax to the Centcnnial Year, and his demands were obviously met by the cadet officers of the squadron on Inspection Day. Rarely has greater effort bee n made by T.C.S. air cadets to strive for excellence and rarely has achievement been so considerable. The standard was set in November when an Honour Guard was for med for the opening of the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. l'nder Mr. Ilar- graft's guidance a core squad of slightly over fifty cadets practised daily land willinglyb in the cold autumn air and gained a great deal ol' valu- able experience in marching and small arms drill.

Both of these were labelled as premature exercises ol' exetutive tyranny and threats to individual liberty, hut tliay weie necessary steps in the arduous preparation for May 7th. With hut three-and-a-half weeks of usable practice time before Inspection 1 ay. cerenionials were frequent and frenziedg the chief difficulty con- fronting S L I-linch throughout those weeks was to instil in the squadron a peculiar mentality conducive to hard work with an awareness that re- wards would be of a purely spiritual nature. Effort for the sole purpose ot' achievement is a stiff demand, especially of a compulsory function such as cadets. These demands were met not so much by coercion but hy effective and exemplary leadership. Special mention must be made of the Band and Precision Squad who practise long and tirelessly and willingly for just such spiritual rewards. The liand contributes a tremendous amount to the colour and spirit of the ceremonial drill and the Precision Squad demonstrates the capabilities ol' its cadets to execute more intricate drill movements. As T.t'.S. becomes increasingly liberal in its ideals, the question is raised more often "For what purpose Inspection Day?" Its purpose is obviously not solely to afford the T.C.S. family an opportunity to congre- gate and be entertained by a display of military prowess. It is similarly unlikely that the underlying reason is to waste a considerable amount of the students' valuable time in pursuit of empty goals. There must be something more elemental in the minds of those who ensure that Inspec- tion Day continues to be a T.C.S. tradition. Perhaps it is a belief in the value of discipline and self-discipline, of diligence, of perseverance, of pride in personal appearance. These were all ideals upon which the 1 l Y i 'Y 1 C I ' QL ff M.

O. M. SOLANDT, O.B.E., M.A., M.D., D.Sc., LL.D., F.R.C.S., CHANCELLOR OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, MAKING HIS ADDRESS S eec INTRODUCTION In the past few years we have become so accustomed to beautiful weather on Speech Day weekend that when rain began to fall early Friday evening, immediately before the Athletic Prizegiving, the whole School was in an uproar. But perhaps this was just Nature's way of warning us not to take her for granted, for within minutes of the time when the ueremonies were due to begin, the skies cleared, and the weather remained superb for the remainder of the weekend. The programme continued as planned, with the Athletic Prizegiving taking place on the Bethune Terrace. The ceremony was run quickly and sinnothly, and in under an hour the athletes of the School had marched oft' triuniphantly with their spoils. Following this everyone adjourned to fish-r llall for the traditional evening's Entertainment. Thi- lin-Inv mnihination of Mr. Lawson as with Mr. Prower at the piano soon had everybody singing the medley of old favourites appearing on thi- pi-Ograninie. Rut it was between these songs that the real high- lights Ot' 1. hi- we-iiiiig appeared. A spirited ensemble calling themselves the ApplL-saui-i- Singers gave their first and probably their last performance, singing a numhi-r Ol' well-known songs, and making up in great enthusiasm what they Izu-lwl in harmony. Tony Rowlinson, who this year completed I TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 23 his Grade 10 piano, performed l'aderewski's Minuet excellently and with wild gusto, to be greeted with screams ot' applause. And a group ol' four New Boys, Mike Chadwick, Brian Gregg, lflruce Mcl'herson and liob Mur- doch, sang a number of home-brewed songs dedicated to their "favourite" Prefects. The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the perfornlance of Andy Barnard's new group called the "Free Spirits", whose two pieces were so well received that they were called back for an encore, which they improvised as they played. The superb playing ol' the Free Spirits seemed almost of professional quality, and was a delight to the jazz lovers in the audience, indeed for everyone present. Ot' course the Choir gave its usual fine performance, under the direction ol' Mr. Cohu, and the old School songs they sang: The Iron Bridge in June, Singing You Off, and The School on the Hill, gave the Leaving Class a sorrowful taste ot' nostalgia. The whole evening's Entertainment was of a high calibre this year and was a rousing preface to the end of the Term. It is difficult to describe on paper the fun and games that go on twixt New Boy and Privilege on this last night ot' the year. Suffice it to say that certain Housemasters are up all night trying to quell the minor riots that break out every few minutes throughout the School. Speech Day fell on the morning of June 11, 1966. The solemn pro- cession from the Lodge to the Chapel, led by the Headmaster, the Chair- man, Dr. Solandt, the distinguished guests, and followed by the Masters and the Sixth Form, set the tone for the ceremonies. The Leaving Ser- vice this year was particularly beautiful, with the Choir at its best, sing- ing "Go Forth With God", and as the School filed out of the Chapel, "And Now With Thanksgiving". Finally, with the School and hundreds of guests assembled on the terrace, the Prizegiving commenced. Introduced by the Chairman, the Guest Speaker, Dr. O. M.

HEADING THIS SPFIECII DAY PROCICSSIUN 24 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD addressed his words to the Leaving Class, emphasizing the exciting world that lies ahead of them. and urging them to accept the responsibility that is theirs. The Headmaster delivered a superlative address, in which he summarized this past year, and then asked us to look ahead, to the future of the School. And then, upon the completion of the awarding of the prizes, a new precedent was set - a speech, in the form of a valedictory address, was delivered bythe Head Prefect. Buffet Luncheon in Osler Hall, and then it was all over. In a flurry of automobiles, the School was evacuated in a matter of hours. But the Sixth Form, as well as some of the Fifth, whom everybody had "sung off" the night before, was left alone to face the remainder of their Grade 13 Examinations. THE HEADMASTER'S REPORT TO THE GOVERNING BODY ON SPEECH DAY, JUNE llth, 1966 Mr. Chairman, Dr. Solandt, Ladies and Gentlemen: To all our visitors, I give a warm welcome to the School, and especially to Dr. Solandt, the distinguished Chancellor of the University of Toronto, who is our Guest of Honour to-day. This is the 101st Speech Day of Trinity College School. Nevertheless, we should not think in terms of being 101 years old, but rather as 101 years young. I say this because of the imaginative and forward-looking plan for the development of the School recently adopted by the Governing Body. In brief, this Plan calls for, as many of you know, the building of a Library which will be the centre of study and research, and as such the int,llgctual heait of the School, it calls for building a second gymnasium with changing rooms underneath, a new residence, and an addition to Boulden House. Although by no means making us the largest school, these additions will put T.C.S. well ahead of any independent school in the country in the facilities it has to offer. Implementing the Plan will not be Casjf. Indeed, it is a mightv challenge to all those who are or who will become conceined with it, calling for dedicated effort, steadfastness of purpose and faith, dedicated effort because much detailed work needs to be done, not only in ensuring that we get the right buildings, but also in raising the substantial sums of money to pay for them, steadfastness of purpose because undoubtedly there will be difficulties, there will be delays, there will be disappointments, and, above all, faith will be needed, faith in the purposes of the Plan, which is synonymous with faith in the very future of this School. I should add that I have not noticed these qualities lacking in the Old Boys, the Parents and former Parents, and many others who believe in the School, and believe in what we are trying to arcomplish. Although the adoption of the Development Plan was undoubtedly the most important event of this past year, several others made the year a nnmoiablg- one. The Centennial Carol Service last December brought to a Clos: the series of remarkably successful events of the Centennial Year of the School. During that year, my wife and I, accompanied for the most part by Mr. and Mrs. Kerr, travelled over 7,000 miles, met just over 1,700 Old llous and Parents at seventeen dinners held in the major cities across Vanada, in New York, and in London, England. I am most grateful for the hospitality shown us, and for the interest in and enthusiasm for the School which we found everywhere we went. Last November, as part of the- V+-ntrnnial programme, the history of the School was published, 26 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD and l congratulate Mr. Humble on his painstaking work in producing a well documented, interesting and most readable book. The two Centennial Lectures dt-liverecl during the year were very well received, the first by l'rol'essor Wilson, formerly head of the International Geophysical Year, and the second by Charles Taylor, an Old Boy who spent almost two years as the representative of the Globe and Mail in Peking. Last November the School formed the Guard of Honour for the opening of the Royal Win- ter Fair. ln December the School hockey team was at the Lawrenceville Tournament at Princeton, New Jersey, in which we placed fourth, and later in the winter they played Hamilton College, which they soundly defeated in two successive games. During the winter term, a team debated in the tournament at McGill University, and the Choir sang Mattins in the church of St. James the Apostle in Montreal. In the past year there were many notable gifts to the School. I men- tion particularly that of the Parents' Committee, which re-equipped the whole School with new beds, made some needed renovations in the School Hospital, and completely re-furnished four boys' rooms, and plan to do six more this summer. I understand that the Annual Giving Programme is going very well, indeed, it now looks as if it will top all previous levels. For these gifts, and many others too numerous to mention, the School is most grateful. Turning to events within the School, I am particularly happy once again that we have done well in an international mathematics contest. In the junior contest sponsored by the American Mathematics Association, T.C.S. came first in this district, and nineteenth out of the three hundred and eighty-five participating schools. I am also happy to say that of the twenty Canadians selected for Princeton University next year, three, tBinch, Hafner and Stobiel, are from T.C.S. Cabell has been admitted to Stanford University. For the first time, the Universities of Toronto and McGill are giving final admission to certain boys with high academic standing before they write their Grade 13 examinations. Under this scheme, Noble, O'Brian and Whittingham have been admitted to the Uni- versity of Toronto, and Grant and Segal to McGill. In sports, this was not one of our better years, but I want to remark particularly on the Basketball team, who had fifteen victories, some of them against the best competition in Toronto, but from whom the cham- pionship was plucked in a final game in St. Catharines. These boys are fine athletes and fine sportsmen, and the experience they had together in their games this season will live in their memories and, I think, will be engrained in their characters forever. I congratulate these boys, led by Hafner, and compliment Mr. Heard, their coach. I also commend the Middleside Football team and the Gymnastics team, both of which had excellent seasons, and the Rugger team, which won the Ontario Schoolboy Senior Vhampionship. Those who witnessed Inspection Day will agree with me that we have good reason to be proud of the Cadet Corps. The standard of excellence set last year was maintained by the School in the Veremonial Parade, by the Band, and by the Precision Squad. In other activities of the School, I congratulate the Debating Team fill having won outright the Independent School Championship for the first time since 1949. I want to commend the artists and sculptors of the 'Stihl'-l whose work, under the able guidance of Mr. Blackwood, is pl'olll'iv azirl ali .f.' ..j.'s imaginative, if sometimes utterly incomprehensible! l'hf- wintt-r issue of "The Record" was one of the best editions we have hall in rf-f-4-nt years, but it drastically exceeded the budget. I com- TRINITY C'Ol.I.IfGE SVHOOL RI-ICORD 28 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD mend the editor, Whittingham, for the former, but not the latter. Finally, I want to single out the Choir for their very good work throughout the year. A well balanced group, they always gave good leadership to the singing in the Chapel. Much of the success of this year, tand it has been a successful yearl, has been due to the Sixth Form, who have fully understood what is ex- pected ot' senior boys at T.C.S. They have been very ably led by Jim Hinch and his assistant, Will Hafner, who together with the other Prefects, have always set a good example to the School, and have tackled their sometimes difficult duties with manly courage. I congratulate Mr. Charles Tottenham, who today completes twenty- fiye years as Principal of Boulden House. An unerring judge of boys, a competent administrator, and a most capable schoolmaster, he has guided the destinies of the Junior School, now Boulden House, with unfailing good sense and with great tact. At his side over the years has been his charming wife, who has given unsparingly her time and her energy. I hope Mr. Tottenham will long continue to act as Principal, for he is a colleague in whom I have great confidence, and for whom I have great respect. In mentioning Mr. Tottenham's long service, I might point out that nineteen members of the teaching staff have served the School for ten years or more, eleven of them for twenty years or more. Eighty per- cent of the teaching staff have been at the School for at least five years. This is a remarkable record, and one of which the School can be most proud. Once again I thank the masters for the good work they have done this year, and at the same time I thank all others engaged in making the wheels of T.C.S. function properly. I want to thank especially my assist- ant, Mr. Dale, and the Bursar, Mr. Lindop. Mr. Campbell is leaving us this year to return to university, as is Mr. Hart. Mr. Jones is returning to England to teach. Each of these men will be missedg I am sorry to see them go, with their charming wives, and I hope that they will return as visitors, if not as masters. I thank them for all that they have done. I must also say good-bye to my secretary, Pat Sharpe, who is to be mar- ried next month. For seven years she has struggled through mountains of work, always cheerfully, and in the past four years I have come to rely on her increasingly. May Lady Luck always be with her. I want to look ahead for a moment at a decision which will have a great effect on the future of the School. I think you are all aware that the Minister of Education for Ontario has announced that after June 1967 no more departmental examinations will be set in Grade 13. Entrance to university will be determined by aptitude and achievement tests similar to those administered by the College Entrance Examination Board in the United States, together with the school examination results in Grade 13 and below. This is a major step ahead. A Sixth Form boy at T.C.S. will be able to exercise his imagination and his creative ability, to develop his powers of analysis and judgment, and to pursue those avenues of study which interest him, and by which, and only by which, can be discovered the true joy of learning. For the first time we can take full advantage of small classes in Grade 13, and for the first time fullest advantage can be made ot' a highly competent teaching staff, whose best efforts have heretofore often been vitiated by having to follow strictly a course of study which they had no part in determining. I am sure the effects of this enlightened decision will be felt down through the other forms in the same measure that the evils of the present external examinations permeate the lower forms, with the over-emphasis on the memory, the 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 29 encouragement of cramming, the necessity of sticking rigidly to the prescribed course, as if knowledge and wisdom came in a pre-packaged consignment dispensed by the wizards in the Department of Education. The abolition of the external examination will open windows of learning that have been too long closed. Mr. Chairman, I have been a long time in coming to you, but I trust that will not lessen the impact of my thanks to you and to the Executive Committee of the Governing Body, for the many long hours of work that you all have given on behalf of T.C.S. I am most grateful. And now I have a final word to the Sixth Form. A little while ago, I was sent a copy of the Governor-General's New Year's address to the Canadian people. I want to quote part of that speech to you. "I wonder how many Canadians realize that on a per capita basis we are the richest nation in the world '? :s: :I: "What have we done to earn such blessings '! What are we doing to be worthy of such an inheritance? Remember that of those to whom much is given, much will be required. "How can we become worthy? I believe: by a healthy respect for good hard work. Our forefathers had it: they opened up this land with the old-fashioned honourable sweat of their brows and the determination of their hearts. But I wonder if the virtues of our forbears are not slipping a little from our grasp. I wonder if we are not forgetting that all the richness of our heritage owed its beginning to, and can only be preserved by, conscious effort and dedicated service. The very ease and comfort of our lives today have lulled us into forgetfulness of those very virtues which have made our present standards possible." Most of you have learned that hard work brings rewards. Otherwise you would not have reached the Sixth Form.

TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 45 ...I , S Xa ' i A ,"'x ff ' i 5 - 1 " 'I NX v '1 T-in-:TP J r Vg, ' ' .f I W , Comment and Criticism CHINESE AGGRESSION AND AMERICA'S POLICY In Asia, Africa, Latin America, indeed throughout the world, Com- munist governments and their fronts are waging war against free peoples. At the moment, the hottest spot is Vietnam. But the issue is not Viet- namg it is how disputes are to be settled - by civilized means or by armed force. The stake is not Vietnamg it is Asia - and ourselves and the world. The problem is not Vietnam: it is aggressive Communist expan- s1on - this time from North Vietnam, backed by the Soviet Union and Communist China. No great expansionist movement has ever stopped until it has been checked. Now a decision must be made, not because we might be a Ca- nadian or an American or an Englishman but because we all are the people of the free world, and Freedom's only defenders. Our choice, with Red China just as we learned with Japan and Hitler - is not between checking and not checking: it is whether to check early while we can, and with allies, or try to check the aggression when it is stronger. closer, and when there are fewer and weaker friends and allies. The question is how to check with least risk and cost. Since the beginning of the Korean war in 1950, America's policy to- wards Communist China has been a realistic attempt to protect the secur- ity interests of the United States by resisting any steps that would fur- ther increase Chinese Communist influence and power. An indispensable part of the policy has been to support and strengthen all non-Comnninist governments that are trying to preserve their independence. Some say that policy had failed. Red China is still there, as dedicated to world domination by armed force as ever. Yes, it is there. but where would the countries around Red China have been without this policy of containment? Let us look now at the changes in policy toward Red China suggested by some. There are three main proposals: official diplomatic recognition 46 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD by the United States, expansion of trade relations and admission of Com- munist China to the United Nations. What benefits, economic or political, has Great Britain received from her granting of diplomatic recognition in 1950? Or France two years ago? Prime Minister Nehru of India recognized Communist China in 1950 and worked out with Chou En-lai the "Five Principles of Coexistencen. He was Red t'hina's chief apologist and advocate at the U.N. and elsewhere. How did his fellow-Asians in Peking respond to his being their best friend? The Chinese invaded India and left Nehru a broken man. It is suggested that with diplomatic recognition, the United States might get more information about conditions in Red China. But it has been getting plenty of information by a variety of means, especially from the thousands of escapees each year. There is no uncertainty as to the loss of face that would result from the suggested weakening of American policy. Such a change in policy would pull the rug out from under Taiwan. With weakening or loss of Taiwan, the Pacific island chain would be breached. It is doubtful that the Philippines could long resist Communist pressures and blandishments. The governments of Asian countries could not refuse to recognize China once the United States did. At the Senate hearings held in April, Rep. Walter H. Judd stated that this would mean "every Chinese embassy and consulate in Southeast Asia, and the world for that matter, would become a protected center of Communist espionage, propaganda, sabotage and subversion of the host government." If the United States were to show that it is not a dependable ally in Asia, who would trust its guarantees? This leads to the familiar "domino" argument - if South Vietnam falls to Communism, Cambodia and Thailand would go next, Malaysia and Burma soon after, then Indonesia, neutralism, anti-Americanism and pro-Peking sentiments would spread to India, the Philippines, and Japan. The damage to U.S. credibility could spread fur- ther - to Berlin and N.A.T.O., Latin America, Africa, and the Middle- East. Thus "Honour Commitments" is a short-hand for a whole train of disasters that could easily ensue. Perhaps worst of all, it would tell 700 million people on the Chinese mainland that we are accepting their sub- jugation. What are the gains from the expansion of trade relations? The Communists themselves have made quite clear what their proposals are. First they want trade in order to get military and industrial equipment and supplies that they cannot yet obtain within the Communist bloc. They do this not in order to develop a greater volume of trade in the future, but to become more self-sufficient and thus not need to trade with us at all. They want to induce countries to become more and more de- pendent on the Communist bloc and therefore more and more at its mercy. This applies particularly to Japan and Germany. This leads to their greatest objective-to divide the free-world powers. The objectives of trade in democratic countries are to improve the lives of people, to improve relations between countries involved, to pro- mote peace and prosperity in the world and, in the process, earn a profit which can in turn be used as capital for further expansion of production and trade. But none of' these is or can be the objectives of a Communist regime. Where trade does exist, it is only to reach a level of self-sufficiency and when this is reached. their trade will be extinguished, for it has served its purpose. The question of China and the U.N. is of special significance. Some 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 47 professors testified that China should be allowed into the U.N. "even il' they threaten to blow it up." The result of admitting Communist Vhina into the United Nations would give the Mao regime the stamp ol' legit- imacy and add immeasurably to its prestige. Why help Peking when it is in trouble? It is ludicrous to say that because Red China is there it should be allowed in. There are gangsters in every city but it is not argued that they should join the city council, the Court, or the police force. The United States has tried to get Red China to accept the member- ship obligations prescribed in the U.N. Charter and agree to refrain from the threat or use of force in their relations with other countries. They would then be eligible for U.N. membership. But they have refused. It is said that 700 million Chinese are entitled to be represented in the U.N. Certainly! But the Peking regime does not represent more than one iota of the Chinese people. It is untrue that the United States is stubbornly and blindly keeping Communist China out of the United Nations. Red China is stubbornly keeping itself out. Because Red China is not in the U.N. does not mean that discussions have not taken place. The United States has had over 130 negotiations with them in the last 11 years - almost one a month - and more than any other non-Communist government has had. These will continue as long as China does not stop them herself. There is a popular assumption, especially here at T.C.S., that the United States has stabilized relations with the Soviet Union because of its recognition and that the same can be done with Communist China. But isn't the present "stability" brittle in the extreme? Isn't it based mainly on the superior military power of the United States and its allies and a common interest in avoiding one of many kinds of war . . . in this case, nuclear conflict between the United States and the U.S.S.R.'? The Free World must recognize the Communist aggression. The United States must state frankly that in Vietnam it is at war with China, for China has said that they are at war with the United States. The most recent statement of Chinese Communist political goals is the Lin Pao position paper of September 1965. It is based on the assumption that the revolution is not going to occur in the great industrial state but in the "country" areas of the world - that the promotion of wars of national liberation in Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia will distract and waste the energies of the Western powers, confuse the peoples, and de- moralize their leaders. This doctrine is variously interpreted but it should be taken as a general indication of the objectives and the strategy of the Chinese Communist movement. The free world must never be lulled into believing that Communism has yielded its ambition for world domination. On the contrary, our task is to convince them that aggression and subversion will not be pro- fitable routes to pursue these ends. The policies of the United States toward Communist governments do not lack foresight. They are not created blindly or arbitrarily. It is a courageous and foresighted policy and it is deplorable that the admin- istration has explained it so poorly. There is no course that does not involve serious risks, we are dealing with a ruthless and resourceful enemy. But we cannot meet a challenge by backing down, and this is the importance of meeting aggressive Com- munist expansion now. -S. V. Frisbee.

W. Zimmerman, IVA WHAT IS THE ROLE OF FREEDOM IN MORALITY? To me freedom is the exemption from control: it is the ability to act as one pleases, when one pleases, and where one pleases. But naturally there are limits. It is, in fact, these limits that are the problem of human freedom today. No society in the world can be completely free in the sense of the definition. For if this were possible, murder, rape and racial inequality would all be condoned and then the basic freedom of those in- volved on the receiving side of these actions would be denied. Take mur- :SO 'TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD der as an example. By the definition everyone has the freedom to live. ll' th f people also have the right to kill, then there is a definite contra- diction in the very way of life. If a person kills he is taking away or de- nying someone else's freedom to live. Take as a further example, rape. liy definition, rape is not prohibited, but again a conflict of freedoms appears, for rape is a violation of a person's freedom and therefore, once again the definition of freedom in its truest sense falls apart. As further 1 xamples illustrate it becomes clear that the definition of freedom cannot exist with mankind where there are two or more different types ui' thought or where there are two or more alternatives in the choice of actions. It is obvious, therefore, that the definition of freedom is becoming less and less valid as concrete examples are applied to it. But let us also discuss something less concrete or a more abstract concept. Take racial inequality, for instance. If the definition of freedom is to remain valid for this example, then everyone from every race on earth is to have equal rights of life and opportunity. This is absurd, for by the racial problems of the world today, we can see that this is unlikely ever to be true. This racial inequality is a fact of the world today, caused by people's prejudice, and as long as people pre-judge others before knowing the facts, this will continue to be so. Since this prejudice has practically become human nature, the freedom of the races of the world cannot possibly be insured. Therefore, once again, we are faced with a situation whereby the defini- tion of the word freedom is invalid. It can also be seen that this definition - namely the exemption from control, or the ability to act as one pleases - is untrue or at least impractical for many, many more situations. This then is the problem facing mankind today, since it is evident that the definition of freedom in its present sense is impossible, because it is full of contradictions. Therefore restrictions or qualifications must be placed on it. What these restrictions are and what are their foundations are the obvious questions to follow, and are also the essence of our morals. In other words it is these qualifications placed upon our freedom that make up the moral problems of today, for it is morals that form the basis for the laws. Primarily morality is the distinction between right and wrong, and if freedom in its purest sense is impossible, then it is up to our moral standards to present some code to control the actions of society. In other words, our freedom is limited, since pure freedom is impossible. lMorality is the word we apply to our limitations of freedom.l Truly, therefore, freedom cannot be totally given to mankind, for by its very nature, it is unlikely that it could ever exist in a society of more than one person. This, therefore, is the crux of the problem facing human free- dom g namely the inability to fulfill the human desire for complete freedom. Freedom can only be given in modified versions and these modifications are controlled by our morals, for, as I have mentioned, they are our guide ligtwetn right and wrong. Since we are unable to be completely free we must limit the freedom in such a way as to give the majority of people the maximum ol' freedom without denying the minorities of their freedom at the same time. This again presents a problem to mankind, for where . 1. .-. . is the onciunig line between what is closest to complete freedom for the majority anfl that i.-:lnch impinges upon someone else's freedom? To fur- thti-.ioniplii-ate the problem, different sets of morals must be taken into -oiisicleration and yet further confounding are the different sets of TRINITY L'0l.l.liCil-I QVllf1Ol, Rlif'f1l?U 51 :tandards that 1li1'1'e1'c11t races 111' p1'11pl1- lllllff 111' 111115' 11111 l111X'11.

RECORD A QUESTION To be or not to be. To exist or to perish, to think or to die. This is the question! We, the people of today, have a decision to make. We either think or act rationally and live, or we act without rational thought but with emotion, fear, hate, selfishness or greed, and die. In past ages, failure to think might mean the death of a few thousand. Today, things have changed, and failure to think will mean the death of millions, perhaps billions, of people in our world of atomic bombs and population explosion. A typical example of man's greed is shown in the pollution of Lake Erie which was polluted by big industry not caring for tomorrow, but only for the profits of today. Some other examples of man's short sight- edness can be shown by the current problems of our population, water shortages and soil erosion. We today must think rationally for a more basic reason - survival. If not, the planet called Earth may be inhabited by mutated cave-men hardly worthy of the name man. We have two major problems today, the population explosion and the threat of nuclear war. Both, in my opinion, can be solved by rational thought by some individuals whose thought is without international boundaries, and is united in the fact that they are all members of the human race, striving to make it better. When will we wake up to the fact that man has come as far as he has by the mind and its intelligence, and that to hesitate to use it when we are faced with problems is utter stupidity? -P. T. Murton, IIIA A SERMON UNDELIVERED In January a number of boys in the Sixth Form expressed a desire to deliver a prepared talk in the Chapel. The original idea was to sub- stitute the speech for a Lesson during one of the evening services. The list of potential orators was eventually narrowed down, because of the time element, to three seniors: Andy Barnard, Mike Dustan and Dave Pollock. Resulting from further problems and delays, none of these boys spoke in Chapel. The topic they had in mind was felt too important by one of the speakers to be so blithely dropped though, so his main argument has been put into an essay, reproduced below. Why do we all follow fads? Why do people grow long hair, or wear corduroy jackets and flowery ties? Why do people smoke marijuana, or take LSIJ, or go on protest marches? To a certain extent it would appear to be a breaking off from the restrictions of parental care, from the "out- moded" laws of society. In teenagers it is a rebellion against the inertia nf adults by individuals who consider themselves more realistic and rational than their parents. But most of all, a fad is something you can identify yourself with, something you can get a kick out of indulging in because you know other people are doing it. People don't wear long hair just be- cause their parents express a strong dislike of itg they wear it because all the other cool guys are doing it. A fad satisfies the search for an identity or a guiding factor, something you can tag along with and use to tell you what to do and Where to do it. Ilut a fad, when you get right down to it, is really only a passing thing. Most fads last on the average a couple of years at the most, and 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 53 many don't last as long as that. When you try to base your life on what you wear, or what's in, as many people seem to do, it seems to be rather obvious that since what's in is always changing, you're going to have to keep changing your way of life. And if you keep changing your way of life, you're not going to have achieved anything by the end ot' your life. I feel that if we need a fad or some principle to live by and to live for - and there wouldn't be this frenzied search for identity if we didn't - surely we should try to find something a little more permanent. I don't think we want something that will last a little while and then fall out from under us, like for example. taking LSD or wearing a fancy tie. All these will govern is our actions and appearances. Surely life is more than actions and appearances. Surely it would be better to find something to which we could turn whenever in doubt, something that could tell us how to act, think, look, speak, and whom to love and whom to hate - in fact something that could outline our whole life for us. Surely, if we want something to live by, let's look for something that we can follow to the letter if need be. Surely we should look for something that will satisfy our search for identity and individuality while providing a focal point for our lives. Now you may think from the title that I'm pointing at the Church as an answer to all our problems. I'm not. The only way to find an answer to all our problems is to find something that will explain us, our cre- ation, our end, and our purpose here, and that can explain it in a way that we can understand and accept. This, I think is part of the reason for a religion. Every man is perpetually hunting for an answer to "why?", "where from?", "where to?" and "what for?". Man is always looking for a reason, an origin, and a direction for his life. Right now we follow fads, because they give us a direction - a temporary one, true, but still a direction. But we are still asking, "Why am I here on earth, in this Chapel, in this pew?" And we get no answer. We ask, "Who or what created me? How did I get here? Where am I going in life? What lies beyond death ?" And we get no answer. The fact is, there is no single answer. The answer is different for every man, because every man is different. The fact is, no one can tell you what your purpose is on earth. The only way to find that out is to search on your own, analysing your life and nature until you find out your own personal answer. Everyone is here for a different reason. If this were not the case, we would have millions of unnecessary duplicates in the world. Everyone's purpose is slightly different. All that may sound like a lot of philosophical balderdash which would appear not to concern the average man. Let's look at in another way. If you know your history at all, you will know that all through their lives men have been searching for truths in life. They made many mistakes, of course, but they found that many of the answers they arrived at agreed with one another to a large extent. Scientists discovered laws which natural objects appeared to obey. Philosophers discovered laws that made learning easier, or laws that men should follow in order to get along with one another. The basis for learning was the assumption that Ia law, either physical or moral, held true for everything that came under its influence. The basis for a society was the assumption that morality was exactly the same for every man. The Mosaic Law - the Ten Commandments - made this assumption and dictated very detailed and highly specific laws which were to be followed to the letter. It carried the assumption that morality is one and the same for everyone to an extreme. Now that's not 54 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the point. The point is that men found large areas of agreement in the answers they found in life. And progress was made because men found these common denominators in life and accepted them. They put them down as a fact and built on them. They made progress by putting one brick on top of another, not by making sure that every brick in the pile was eight inches long. They took the common knowledge for granted and built on that. This is why groups and civilizations can and have developed. The assumption that there is something common to the behaviour of every individual made it possible for a society to exist and to develop a set of laws to live by. It made possible - indeed necessary - a religion or a faith of some kind. Men had to have a guiding pattern of some kind that they could feel would apply to every member of the society. And herein lies one of the weaknesses of men, and consequently of the religions they developed. They assumed that religion was a full, definite structure, complete and catalogued in every detail, which applied in toto to every man. But this is the error. The Church - in fact any religion - is not. and cannot be a complete guide to life. Life is too com- plex for that. This idea of religion makes no allowance for the individual case. The Church is only now beginning to relax the bonds a little, re- alising that it cannot hope to exist with its rigid laws in the fluid society of today. Well, if the individual cannot turn to the Church for an answer to life, where is he to go? The answer is, to himself. He must find his own answer to life, his own guide, in fact, his own religion. As I said, every man's religion is slightly different. And I also said the Church was wrong in its assumption that morality was the same for every man. Now, if you will look again. you will see that I did not say that every man's re- ligion was completely different. I did not say that the Church was totally useless to men todav. After all, a thing which has lasted nearly two thousand years must have something in it. Men have not changed that iadicallv. The Church does have a point, although it carries it to an r xtrcnii Morality is the same for every man. at least in a general sense. The Church is not a full, catalogued guide to lifeg it is only a framework or a pattern. It is a compilation, a collection of various people's answers io life, and a statement of what they found good and useful in life. It contain: the basic truths of life, which have held true for nearly every man fo" almost two thousand years. There is no reason to suspect that they will collapse now, and that to be kind to your neighbours is not al- ways iight. I would think that the times changed more radically from 50 A.lJ. to 1940 A.D. than from 1940 A.D. to the present, certainly from the point of view of morals and men's ideas of God. The idea of democ- racy in the Western world was developed well before 1940. It has not ihanggd substantially since then. The most radical change in God has been a gradual extension and debunking of men's concept of Him. Similarly there is no reason to suspect that morals which held true two thousand ffv:n's ago have changed significantly since then. Religion is not in need ui' re place ment but of reiuvenation. The foundations - the concepts of good and evil - are still true for every man. This is the solution to the apparent paradox. I said that everyone's moral pattern is different, and then 1 said that morality is the same for all men. V. Lewis argued that people have "only slightly different nioralities. .lust think what a quite different morality would mean." Thus I am not saying that a man might be justified in having murder 4 TRINITY CUl.l.l'IGl'I f'CllUUl. lllftflblill asian integral part of his moral makeup or as his pattern ol' life. l do think, however, that a man might be justified in divorcing his wife for their mutual benefit even though the Church may consider it a sin. Hut I do not agree that a man is always justified in breaking the moral laws of society. In more or less the same way, we all must follow an accepted pat- tern for our life. Life ceases to have meaning or enjoyment without any pattern. Our life concerns other people, and other people means society. Now, being individuals, we cannot all follow the same pattern or the same rule of life. The meaning for life is different in every case. The big mistake the Church made was in assuming that morality was absolute. The basis of morality and social behaviour is absolute, but morality can- not be catalogued in infinitesimal detail. It is like handwriting. One must make an "o" like a circle in order to communicate with other people, but the actual style of script is peculiar to the particular individual. So in searching for our rule of life and a reason for existence, we must not assume that we are completely different from anyone else who ever ex- isted. We must take for granted what other people have found out about life, and we must use their answers as guides to our own lives. None of us has the time to figure out the whole of the ideas of right or wrong in a lifetime, we must use the past as a blueprint for the future. The Church is not a complete guide to life, although it has pretended to be. It is, however, a useful guide to life, otherwise it would have been abandoned long ago. No one can say without first looking, "The Church has nothing in it for me." One is obliged at least to examine the Church, see what it has and why others follow its teachings, test these thoughts if necessary, and then make a decision. The Church is not an unchanging, unalterable entity, although it has long been considered so by many, mem- bers and non-members alike. The Church, rather than bending, has broken into its various denominations which are only now coming to- gether again. The Church must be flexible, and so must its members. Perhaps, then, the Church might have something in it for us. It might be a useful thing to look into. It might be better than wearing fancy ties -- not that I'm against fancy ties, mind you - it might be a little more permanent and a little more comprehensive than a fad. We need something to base our lives on, why not be like the ancients? The Church is not a binding set of rules saying, Go to Church every Sunday, bow at the name of Jesus, and so on. It is just a guide to living the most useful, satisfying kind of life possible. And that varies - slightly - with every individual. -T. M.

This has manifested itself in open and very Often violent rebellion - witness Mods and Rockers, Draft Vard Burners and so on. One of the most obvious manifestations of this rebellion is the taking of drugs. One half of the college students in Canada and the United States are at the present on drugs of one sort or another. The latest rage is LSD-25 tLysergic diethylamide or Lysergic acidl. LSD can be made in any well-equipped chemistry lab, and comes in liquid or crystalline form. A minute particle of LSD can send any animal fincluding petsl on a "trip" and the duration and intensity of a "trip" depends on how much of the drug is consumed. If it is in liquid form, it is usually dripped into sugar cubes, hence its name in the drug circles of "sugar". It can also be dipped in a handkerchief, dried, and because it is odourless and tasteless, can easily pass hands unnoticed. The recipient only has to moisten the handkerchief and away he goes. This easy distribution with little risk of detection makes LSD very dangerous. According to the users, LSD produces a sensation whereby one can alienate himself from the world and see things in a realistic light. The ex- perience can be either terrifying or beautiful, depending on the person. Colours become unbearably bright, and sounds overpoweringly loud. The senses, including sight, take over from reason. The user can, for instance, spend hours contemplating the true meaning of the big toe on his left foot. After about half a day the effects wear off. The person who uses LSD sees for the first time how things really are. This kind of experience is not new. People Occasionally have "flashes of truth". A hermit often experiences the same thing. Mystics in the Far East often go on "trips" by increasing the carbon dioxide concentra- tion in their blood through controlled breathing. Physically, LSD has no side effects and it is not addictive. The human brain consists of hundreds of neurons, which are cells shaped like star- fish with two to six very long "tentacles". A man's concepts and ideas are formed when these neurons join together to form patterns. Using LSD. as does drinking or lack of oxygen, causes these "tentacles" to curl away from one another, becoming disconnected, and thus isolating neurons. When the effects wear off, the neurons join together again but in dif- ferent combinations. Thus the user has a new outlook. This is where the danger lies. LSD causes more disruption, more suddenly than any previously known stimulant, and the taker has no control over very big changes. He never returns to his old self again. Now, I am not saying that a new outlook is bad, but a change must be gradual. The fast action of LSD as a sudden and often unwanted "eyeopener" can be too much for the human temperament. The drug is in such wide use, especially in North American universi- ties, that most of today's students will probably be confronted at some time or another with the question of whether to take LSD, or not to take it. This choice depends on whether one is willing to take such a big risk and knowingly endanger his outlook on life, with absolutely no control over the change involved. -J. P. Molson, 'VA .aa TRINITY COLLEGE scHooL RECORD THE ART CLUB The year 1965-66 marked the firm establishment of art as a perman- ent part oi' school life at T.C.S. This was perhaps best displayed at the Inspection llay Exhibition, a show involving the finest work from both lxlonlden llouse and the Senior School. lt would be impossible to assess individually the wide range of talents that were evident at this exhibition. There was the consistently imagin- ative and original work by the veterans of art's early days in the School - people like Peter Crossley, John Shier, Steve Osler and Peter Newell - not to mention the excellent accomplishments of the newer members. llew Elcock, Peter Scrivener, and especially Steve Frisbee have made very valuable contributions to the art scene this year. On the whole, the season was a good one. Friday nights found a veritable army of diligent workers up in the art room, some doing oils, others water colours, and still others drawing or sculpting, or experiment- ing with prints and metalwork. However, the important thing was not what we were doing, but rather that everyone's work was different and original. For all this, thanks are due to Mr. Blackwood, the art master, who leads the almost impossible life of an artist in Toronto and as the teacher and organizer of the extensive art programme here at the School. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, Mr. Blackwood comes ori- ginally from bleak and windy Newfoundland, where his family has had a colourful history in seal hunting. The influence of his home and past is reflected in his style to a large extent. He is currently Working on a series of fifty engraved prints called "The Great Lost Party" which concerns a sealing expedition that is lost in the ice during the spring hunting season. His prints are hanging in several galleries across Canada, including three from the series which are in the National Gallery of Canada. To the members of the club, Mr. Blackwood is a constant source of help and advice who does not, however, try to cramp one's style. On the contrary he always encourages individuality and experiment, this being one of the reasons for his success in getting the most out of one's talents. He has done a lot, not only in teaching, but towards fostering a general appreciation of art throughout the School. To him goes the credit for the growing success of art at T.C.S. The future looks bright. It is speculated that in the not too distant future, art may even appear as a recognized subject on the timetable! Many of us look forward to the day when not only art, but all the arts will reach their deserved and indeed necessary position of importance as integral parts of our education. -Henry Bull, Art Critic TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD h,,..or L, DESERTED LANDSCAPE.

TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 65 I EE Literar INTRODUCTION Memo: Lit.Ed. to E-I-C Dear Spewforth: This is the newest Lit. Sec., and while it's, well, perhaps not the big- gest, it is the best. Actually, it's rather a queer little section - almost all poems. We carefully weeded out the essays, thus leaving only poems Cclang!J Don't tell me I've got to cut more out to meet your beastly budget - these contributions are IMMORTAL Ibesides, as the hired hand said, it's not the work, it's the decisions what's killing me.l No, really. the problem for once has been to select the good from the not-so-good and the trash, and I think I've done a good job. I'd feel as though I were cutting off a hand if I took anything out now - would you believe a fin- gernail? No, the advertising campaign seemed quite successful - we had dozens of budding young authors eagerly plying us with the fruits of their trade - which reminds me - did I ever tell you the beginning of "La grande debacle"'? One of those 'jeunes ecrivains' bounced into my room and handed me a poem, for which I thanked him profusely, placing it in the appropriate receptacle, he insisted that I read it aloud "to get the full flavour". It was bad - really bad. So, noticing it was about tennis, and not having the heart to tell him what I thought of it, I sent him off to Kortright: "Well, uh, it's very good of course but, well, it's about tennis, it's not quite in my department . . . you'd better go to Kortright, he's Sports Editor . . ." So off he went, and the performance was repeated there: "I think it's - well, I mean . . . maybe you'd better see Whittingham fthat's you. oh drivelling onel about it - he makes all final decisions." I think the truth was beginning to dawn when you told him to take it back to the Literary Editor. But when you gave him the old "Why, I think it's very, uh, clever . . . I'll have it typed out and then decide" line, I'm pretty sure he clued in. Oh it's a hard life. But please take your time - some of the poems are deceptively simple. There's some good stuff this time . . . I know you'll agree. See if you don't think that this is the best of the three superlative Literary Sec- tions I have been responsible for this year! -R.H.S. 66 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD THE ODYSSEY OF THE MARY ANNE The Mary Anne, or, as the sailors called her, the Raggity, was one of the many cargo passenger ships built during the 20's, which were pressed into service at the beginning of the Second World War - she was a 15,000 tonner and could knife through the water at twenty-five knots. She had seen many a port, from Singapore to Murmansk and from Malta to Panama. Her crew, from chief cook and bottle-washer to cap- tain, thought she was the "fightingest" ship afloat, save the Hood. Al- though she had only two 5-inch guns, and four anti-aircraft guns, she was considered as an armed merchant. The Mary Anne had braved three crossings of the treacherous Atlantic without being touched. Having one's funnel blasted off by a German cruiser is not considered being touched. The haze of land disappeared, leaving Convoy "Alice" in open sea. Vulnerable all the eighty-five ships were, from the sea, from the air, and most of all from under the sea. Everybody on this run knew about the explosions, the chilling cold, and mass death. For the look-outs on the Raggity Anne, there was cold boredom in between coffee breaks, but the job had to be done. For days boredom grew with anxiety. Would they come, or had they caught them sleeping? The answer was twenty-one feet down and 2,000 yards from the tanker Ohio City. The visibility was bad that day, and the sea rather choppy. Even a day like that couldn't hide the tell-tale streak racing towards the Ohio City. The skipper of the Ohio City saw it too late - for that matter, everybody did. The flame rocketed 100 feet into the air dividing the tanker in half. Within three minutes the Ohio City was just another oil slick. One gone . . . eighty-four to go. The lone destroyer of 1918 vintage faded in the probable direction of the boat. It left the flock unattended for the waiting wolves. The U- boat pack attacked systematically from the outside in. Only two other ships had depth-charges. There were two new Canadian corvettes. Be- tween picking up survivors and looking at burning ships you could see the corvettes tearing up and down the convoy, dropping depth-charges. The Mary Anne came out untouched, but fifteen vessels never saw the light of the next dawn. With the convoy cut up as badly as she was, she lay open for attacks from the sea and the air. The Mary Anne's job was just that, to protect the convoy from the air and sea at all costs. This convoy might be the one to show the world what the Mary Anne could do. It might have been lack of sleep or the chilling North wind, but whatever it was, able-seaman Peters saw the smoke too late. An express train-like noise woke everybody up to the fact that they were being paid a visit by the German Navy. The shrill notes of alarm whistles were drowned by more shells. An eight-inch shell pierced a gaping hole just behind the funnel of the Mary Anne. A second hit her above the water- line amidships. A third, thank heavens, missed. Ships of every size in the convoy were feeling the hammering blows. The cruiser, out of range, charged on past the crippled Mary Anne to richer spoils. For three days and nights she battered the elements, with one goal . . . to return to England. If you were on the south-west coast of Eng- land, looking out on the sea, you would kick yourself twice before be- lieving it. All the wavings and signallings would not alter the Mary Anne's course: she wanted to get to England. 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 67 l The Mary Anne came close to reaching llover. But if you go out a mile, and two. hundred feet down, you will see her shattered remains where a minefield once was. -I. I".

If I had merely suspected that repairing and selling my old bicycle could have brought this much happiness to any youngster, I would have done it long before. The boy, all of nine years old, reached forward to touch the bike gently, cautiously, as if afraid of breaking something if he gripped it too firmly. But he just had to touch it. He couldn't take his hands away from the bike. His eyes roamed from the shiny chrome fenders to the blue frame, and back to the fenders again, absorbing every square inch. His father opened his mouth to speak. His appearance betrayed him as a foreigner, but the nationality eluded me. He might have been a Pole, he might have been a Czech. He might have been any Eastern European nationality before my limited perception. By his dress and manner it was apparent that although he wasn't living in poverty, his was a constant struggle to make ends meet. Hamilton, like all cities, is full of such people. In Hamilton, most of them work hard at low-paying jobs in the steel mills. His English was heavily accented, but correctly spoken. He spoke to the boy in a paradoxically coarse and yet tender voice, unique in some men. "Do you like that?" "Oh, yes daddy, yes." The boy was almost sighing as he spoke. Had the bike been less cumbersome, I think he might have picked it up and hugged it. As I watched him, I experienced a peculiar mixture of emotions of guilt and happiness. Guilt, in that I had never so appreciated the bicycle, bringing such joy to my parents' hearts as one could not help but feel and see in this lad, and yet an overpowering feeling of warmth at seeing anyone so happy. "How much do you want for it?" the father wanted to know. This was obviously to be a major and ill-afforded purchase. The boy's awe was beginning to turn to excitement as he sensed the object of his affec- tions might soon become his. He started to bounce up and down, beaming wider than ever. "Uh, thirty dollars," I told him almost apologetically. "Could you let it go for twenty-five?" "Oh, sure. That'd be fine." I felt so Wonderful that I think I would have given it to him for nothing if he had asked. I was feeling terribly guilty for having dared to ask thirty dollars of him. He paid me with what seemed like contemptuously materialistic money, and I helped them load the bike into the back of their none-too-modern station- wagon. As the vehicle pulled away, I could see the boy. He was turned around on the front seat gazing back fondly at his prize. It made me wonder what can be wrong with a world that has people who can be so appreciative. Who are these cynics who say the World is full of sorrow '? Surely they have never met people like these, or experi- Q-nced anything like this. Who can find fault with the world in which a trivial event like the sale of a bicycle can be so wonderful? Certainly there can be no basis for the beliefs of these cynics. Life is good. The next day, the phone rang. It was the foreigner Who had bought Tbf- bike.

The drunk groaned, rolled over, and fell with a thud into the gutter. He lay there for a few moments as if he did not want to wake up, and then with a sigh of resignation rose shakily to his feet. The first thing that focused his blurred vision was 712 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD one rotten tomato, splattered in a geometric pattern on the wall be- hind him. "Crazy college kids!" Ile spat in the general direction of the gutter, and then wiped his mouth on his sleeve. He wrinkled his nose in disgust and spat again. "Already starting to smell like the rest of them," he announced to the stagnant morning. A little farther down the street a small coffee house had just opened, so he meandered down the street in its general direction. A stench of stale sweat hanging in the air only helped to accentuate his headache. "Morning, Wino." Joe, the proprietor, grinned at him from the kitchen. He was unbe- lieyably fat, and always wore sweaty T-shirts to display his pride and joy: his tattooed girls. "Gimme a coffee." Joe pushed a steaming cup of chicory across the counter to him. He mumbled his habitual comment on the coffee, and then walked over to a corner table and sat down. He stared dully at his coffee. . . "And now, ladies and gentlemen, we come to the Dean's Cup, awarded to the best graduate lawyer of the Faculty. It is with great pleasure that I present this to Mr. ....... " "Come on Willy, ten minutes till work." He drank his coffee slowly, and then leaned back in his chair and stared at some nondescript spot on the far wall . . . ". . .

He looked sadly out the window. . . "I'm sorry, boy, we don't hire . . . our office is full right now." The man behind the desk glared at him with disgust. "The sign outside says 'employment here' ". "Mistake, boy . . . it's all a mistake . . ." He got off the bus, and walked down the street to his stand. Joe worked two shops down the way, round the stadium. Nice place around that stadium, lots of rich customers. . . "Come on, boy, haven't all day." A businessman stood beside his stand, his briefcase in his hand and a neatly rolled newspaper tucked under his arm. He glared at Willy. "Why don't you ever get here on time? 1've got enough schedules to meet without waiting for you!" Willy mustered all his remaining pride he could, then spoke: "Like your shoes shined, mister?" -J. R.

The sail above my head hangs limp, The sheets grow loose and damp. This lifeless hull drifts ever on, Caught in some vicelike clamp. Ten pairs of eyes search glasslike sea. Some sign of wind they seek. Starving eyes fill sweat-lined face, Ears tuned to the yard-arm's creak. "Deck ho," squall line, port ten or more, The mast-head watch sings loud. Ten pairs of feet up rigging race, The yards with sail they crowd. Nearer, nearer comes the line, Like scythe through golden wheat. The tired men drink deep and long, As scythe cuts through the heat. The canvas blossoms from the mast. The music of the wind plays sweet. The hissing bow, the waters partg The ship regains its feet. -W. H. Elcock, VA DESPAIR ' The small rainclouds scudded up and down the sides of the cliff, look- ing like miniature grey sponges and scraping the tree-tops as they rose gently towards the top of the slope. They paused at the summit of the desolate rock face for a minute and then disappeared into the towering grey clouds above. Slowly these huge clouds also rose and then quickly departed into the East. The sun suddenly began to shed its sparse light over the sodden earth through the dispersing clouds. The last cloud passed over the sun and was gone, and suddenly the land was flooded with the brilliant White light of the hour old dawn. There was a deep silence: an almost imperceptible solitude hovered over the still lake for a moment, broken only by the irregular dribbling of the water droplets off the over- hanging trees into the lake. Then, faint as a whisper, the wind began to sift through the trees, breaking the unperturbed silence to whistle softly through the pines. A thick white mist rose from the flat waters of the lake only to be gathered up by the rising breeze and rolled like huge balls of cotton down to the expanse of water and be thrown up into the blue sky. Perched on a crag of granite on the shores of the desolate lake was an old log cabin. Slowly the door of this cabin opened and a grizzled old man pushed his way out of the gloom and emerged into the open air and the bright sunshine. He lumbered through the gumbo and the gritty earth towards the murky lake to wash his wrinkled face. The tobacco l-4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD suioke slowly drifted out of the cabin door and sailed serenely up in blue wisps to dissipate in the atmosphere. The old man straightened up, and with the turbid water dripping from his fare. cast his eyes toward the West. Above the distant horizon he pert-eiyed the tell-tale spatter of grey that forecast the coming of that seemingly endless long low bank of grey cloud. The Water steadily dripped from the rotting roof and the permeated shingles gradually loosed the reservoir that they had soaked up during the past week. The figure slowly turned and trudged back to his cabin. lle was an old fool! He had left his hay crop too late in the hopes that the fine weather which had lasted most of the summer would con- tinue. It was only a week ago when he had seen the black billowing clouds on the horizon and had feverishly Worked with his primitive scythe to cut the hay. ln the end his body was racked with weariness but the job was done, the hay was piled. The rain had begun to fall softly at first but then the tempo increased and by morning all the ground was soaked with water. The rain had continued for three days and then, in a brief interlude, the sun came out and half an hour later the old man was standing by the remains of his smoldering pile of hay. He had been told about this danger which they called "spontaneous combustion" but he had not believed them. He had tried to start his decrepit old car but frayed, water-soaked ignition wires had refused to allow him even the meagre hope of driving over the forty miles of backwood gumbo to the "general store". For a guide his years had long since passed and he relied com- pletely on the hay crop and small credit at the store to see him safely through the year. Now all was lost!

The School aims to develop the "whole boy". The next question is, how does the School plan to do this? There are, I think, four basic ways - first, giving him a sound academic educationg secondly, making him live in close contact with other people, thirdly, giving him an opportunity to join various clubs, and last ibut not leastl, providing him with facilities to develop his athletic talents. It can be seen then, that sports play a very important role in the life of the School. They contribute to the School's aim of developing the whole boy. But to get away from this vague, general term, why do we play sports? We want to get enjoyment and exercise and certainly no one could deny that we play sports to win. This is why every boy is re- quired to play an organized sport each term. It is the relative importance of these two elements that we are mainly concerned with - enjoyment and playing a game to Win. This year, in terms of a won-lost record, none of our Bigside teams except for Basket- ball, Hugger, and perhaps Gymnastics, have been particularly successful. However, anyone who was a member of any Bigside team this year can attest to the fact that the spirit was excellent and the amount of enjoyment derived from playing on the teams was well worth the effort. In fact, this comment could be extended to include many teams on the Middleside and Littleside level - that winning is desirable, but not all-important. The members of Bigside Football and Hockey in particular got more of an education playing as a 'losing team' than did the better teams they played, which had much more talent. Yet there are still many in the School who look only at the won-lost record and - may I even dare to suggest - they tend to get an inferiority complex about T.C.S.'s athletic ability. Perhaps more than in any other facet of school life, the apparent success or failure of our School teams either raises or lowers school morale and spirit. This is a natural tendency but at the same time, an irrational one. If the School felt sports were more important, we would spend more time practising, for some sports we would hire professional coaches who would introduce all the newest most scientific methods of coaching. Then perhaps we would win more games. But would we not then be losing sight of the basic purpose of playing a game-to enjoy it? We must also keep in mind that most of our Bigside Teams this year have been relatively young. The large majority of the talent has come from grades eleven and twelve, and these athletes will improve with ex- D6!l'lQllCfi. Perhaps I sound as though I myself have an inferiority complex and am trying to rationalize the reasons for this year's comparative lack of TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 77 success.. This, though, has definitely not been my intention. What l am suggesting is that we do not let losing bother us. This in turn will pro- duce a more healthy attitude and stronger spirit in which teams will have the confidence to win more games, and after all, winning or losing is largely psychological. The School must support the teams. No one should have to be dragged out to watch a game. Ile should be out there anyway, cheering his team. Surely this will produce stronger school spirit, a more healthy attitude to sports activities, and most oi' all, help to fulfill the School's prime purpose - to develop the whole boy. -J. I.. M. K. 1 Illll lllll CltlllKll'l' Coach's Report The loss of six of our main cricketers from last year's team proved too big a gap for us to fill this year, but under the captaincy of Michael Marshall we managed to produce a team which was very keen indeed and which never gave up trying. Once again, and I am very sorry to say perhaps for the last time, we had the very valuable services of Eldon Zuill who came to help with the coaching - he will be greatly missed here for he has done stalwart work in training cricketers during the past few years. We were also fortunate in having help from John O'I3rian, who came to give valuable assistance after Inspection Day. A great deal ot' the cricket season was bitterly cold but the weather only really interfered with one match, which was rained off. Michael Marshall was a very good captain, a fine fielder and a batsman prepared to use the long handle when T28 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD the occasion demanded. Geoffrey O'Brian was potentially our best bats- man with very quick footwork and a wide range of strokes. Pat Little proved to be a very useful wicket keeper and as an opening batsman he played some very useful innings. Our most successful bowler was Joel Wright. who also proved to be a very useful batsman indeed. As a free hitting batsman Michael Lindop played some useful innings - he is also a very fine fielder. Karl Scott is a very promising all rounder and should make a very useful cricketer indeed. I wish to thank the various scorers, C. G. R. Macdonald, R. A. Wilson and R. A. Hanbury, the manager J. D. Gibson and also M. J. Finlayson for his very useful services. The team has been an excellent group to work with and I take this opportunity of thanking Mr. Jones, Mr. Franklin, and Mr. Lawson for their very welcome assistance throughout the season. -A. D. Corbett Captain's Report Have you ever played cricket? If you have, have you ever played in the winter? - we did! But despite the weather we had a really enjoy- able season. We had only one win to our credit, and that was the St. Andrew's gameg but during the club matches the team on several occasions tGrace Church, Mr. Chappell's XI, and Kingston? played a very solid brand of cricket. In the L.B.F. games we beat S.A.C., but our batting strength could not cope with the spin of the B.R.C. and the U.C.C. bowlers, and unfor- tunately let us down. However, the team, despite a very low score to protect in both cases, never gave up in an attempt to skittle the other side out. This was especially shown by the fall of two quick wickets in the B.R.C. game with only a few runs to go for a victory for B.R.C. Following the season, everyone said that Kahuna's "Tiki Dolls" had not brought us luck, but the luck we missed in success was brought in the form of spirit and a real want to play cricket. In closing I want to thank Mr. Corbett for his patience and for his careful coaching, to thank Mr. Franklin and Mr. Lawson for all their help. and finally to thank Mr. Jones and wish him well in all he does in the years to come. -Mike Marshall, Captain BIGSIDE SUMMARY lligsicie vs. Saint Edmund's Lost 80 for 8-82 for 8 Higsicle vs. Toronto Cricket Club Lost 100- 103 for 8 Bigsice vs. Kingston Cricket Club Draw T.C.S.114-Kingston 110 for7 l-Iigsice vs. Mr. Chappell's XI Lost 72- 137 for 9 I-ligsicie vs. Grace Church Lost 52-86 Bigside vs. S.A.t'.

Winning the toss, Captain Michael Marshall sent in his openers. Grant and Little, the latter emerging after an hour and a half for 37 runs, caught out. Against inconsistent bowling, and with the aid of a newly imported good luck charm, Decker Haig's Bahamian Tiki doll, Bigside ran up a score of 80 for 8 wickets declared. After the tea break, the St. Edmund's batting side entered and faced the bowling of Haig and Wright. In the first over, Haig captured the season's first wicket and his first of five in the game. Slowly the St. Edmund's score mounted up, led by Georgian with 21 run out, and with approximately half an hour to go, Couchman drove the visiting team's score to 82 for 8. T.C.S. had lost her first match by a small margin but the batting, bowling, and fielding showed promise for a young and inexperienced squad.

But our hopes for victory were soon squelched as Maile and Benson, playing beautiful strokes, ran the score up to 79 runs. The Cricket Club won easily after this onslaught..

Against consistent bowling, Bigside was able to continue through the lunch break and on until just before tea when Haig was bowled for 14, giving Bigside a total of 114 runs. O'Brian and Scott stood for 30 runs, broken when O'Brian was bowled for 20. Wright and Haig too came through at the end of the batting order to run up a combined total of 36. Our batting not only sparkled but the fielding did also. The bowlers, however, had trouble settling down. At the start of the last over, the score stood 107 for 7. Scott bowling, only three runs were hit, and T.C.S. had drawn its first game after a close race against time. This game marked the only consistent team batting effort - never again attained during the season. Only against S.A.C. was it approached. But at the time it showed promise of things that never came. BIGSIDE vs. MR. CHAPPELUS XI At Port Hope May 11 Lost: 72 - 137 for 9 Mr. Chappell's opened the innings, but before the ending of the first over Haig had claimed their opening batsman's wicket. They settled down, though, and easily ran up a score of 137 for 9. Zuill and Mewburn Cknown afterwards by his friends as Benedict Arnoldj both batted well for Mr. Chappell's as they combined for 27 runs. Although our bowling was erratic the fielding was sharp as tacks. Michael Marshall held a hard drive by Felix, a former Australian test player. Bigside then went to bat and experienced that ever-present problem. The spin bowling of Mr. Georgiou was devastating, helping to put us all out for 72 runs. 82 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD Leading Batsmen: T.C.S.

But then Joel Wright and Geoff O'Brian combined for 6 wickets to have the side all out for only 86 runs. Wright's bowling for the match was an impressive 1.5 runs per wicket. Bigside then came to bat, and opened cautiously, perhaps too cautious- ly, for with half the side out we had only 26 runs. Mike Lindop hit a creditable 24 runs before he was caught out. But his effort was in vain. The tail failed to wag and we were all out for 52 runs - a score that would haunt us in matches to come. Leading Batsmen: T.C.S.

Both teams were hindered by a wet wicket and the scoring was not as high as it could have been under drier conditions. T.C.S. batted first, a move which later proved to be one of the winning tactics for the School. S.A.C'.'s fielding was extremely good, as they played a very attacking field and allowed few runs to be scored until three o'clock when O'Brian and Lindop were at bat. The school began to pick up, and O'Brian played ii very steadv innings, hitting up a total of 25 runs. Mike Marshall gave the team a lift by running up 14 but was caught at silly mid-off with a score of 81 for 7. The remaining wickets fell quite quickly, S.A.C. putting us all out for 97 runs.

Shortly afterwards, Haig followed suit with a fine catch making the score 11 for 2. With an hour remaining, the score stood 21 for 6. Karl Scott had bowled another man and Willis, Wright and Haig had made catches. Big- side was also fielding well and captain Mike Marshall had been position- ing his team very effectively. Marshall bowled the seventh man, and Little made a fine running catch at backward short leg off O'Brian's bowling, making the score 34 for 8. With twenty minutes remaining and visions of last year's close match in the minds of both players and spectators alike, tension inevitably built up to a feverish pitch. S.A.C., playing for a draw, batted steadily, content to play a straight bat to swing- er or spinner alike. However, Karl Scott bowled the ninth man on a fine ball, making the score 41 for 9. As the last batsman approached, we now had ten minutes to win. On the second ball of the over, Joel Wright shattered the stumps to give him the fine figures of three wickets for no runs. We had beaten the Saints 97-41. Both teams were playing on a difficult wicket with long boundaries. However, T.C.S.'s batting was more regular and controlled than that of S.A.C., and in the final analysis, it is fair to say that our fielding and bowling were also more effective. A great deal of credit must go to every member of the team for what was truly an XI effort, but especially to the captain, who made a commendable score himself, and deployed his team in such a practiced fashion. v g 6133 BIGSIDE vs. RIDLEY At Port Hope May 23 Lost: 52 - 54 for 2 Bigside, champing at the bit, after the late leave in Toronto and the big win over S.A.C., in that order, prepared to take on Ridley on a warm, sunny, "cricket" day. Marshall, again having employed Mr. Corbett's coin flipping technique, won the toss and Bigside elected to bat. Openers Little and Grant faced the bowling of Ridley Captain Smith and Ormond. After four scoreless overs, Grant was caughtg and after three-quarters of an hour the score stood 18 for 3. A defensive stand was started by Little and O'Brian which lasted for another three-quarters of an hour when Little was bowled for 5. Lindop came on and batted up 12 runs in an hour to become high scorer. Bigside's batsmen were unable to handle the fine off-beat bowling of Deeks, who captured 6 wickets for 12 runs and the yeoman work of Ridley Captain Smith, who had only 21 runs svoretl off him in 29 overs. T.C'.S.' only hope remained in a smart bowling and fielding side. How- ever, the opening Ridley batters, Ormond and Dunsmore, capitalized on l3igside's weak bowling and soon after the tea break had tied the T.C.S. wore of 52. Then it appeared that the Tiki Dolls became aware of our plight. Wright appealed Ormond L.B.W. and the Ridley batsman was out for 13. The following over, an inswinger by Scott was popped up by Dunsmore. TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 85 He left the field caught by Wright, for an excellent stand of 30 runs. Mr. Corbett's attempt to stall for time with two hours left and one run to go was soon stymied, and the incoming batsman, Rapsey, stroked through the field for two and Ridley retired 54 runs for two wickets. This resounding defeat by a strong and powerful Ridley team was the result of the complete reversal of the form displayed at S.A.t'. Bowling, fielding, and batting collapsed. lloping that all this poor per- formance had been played out, and with the image of the Tiki Dolls slightly tarnished, Bigside prepared for the final game with U.C.C. The result of this game would decide the L.B.F. championship. Bigside couldn't help but improve-or could they? 1829 'va ' 72' .rl vM , 414 Ji' BIGSIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope May 25 Lost: 49 - 50 for 1 Mr. Corbett's two headed coin again came through with the clutch as Captain Mike Marshall won the toss and Bigside went in to bat. Our opening batsmen sustained bowling by White and Ward, but the com- plexion of the game changed when Greg Young, a right-handed leg spin- ner came on. He soon had T.C.S. batters in trouble and Bigside's first eight wickets fell to him. A fine hitting stand was established by Marshall and Wright, broken after 20 runs when Drinkwater made a diving catch to retire Marshall, the high scorer with 11. T.C.S. seemed to have lost its batting touch against the consistent and accurate U.C.C. bowling, and after only a short one and one half hours, were all out with a very disappointing 49 runs. T.C.S. still had at this point the opportunity to win the L.B.F. cham- pionship by defeating U.C.C. and if indications were to be drawn from the second ball to U.C.C. star batsman Bill Doherty, Bigside were well on their way. Wright with an inswinger retired Doherty L.B.W. However, the remaining opener, John Reed, and the new batsman, Marshall Sterns, put an end to any remaining T.C.S. optimism. Our bowling was again erratic and all loose balls were punished. The score slowly mounted up, two by two. Home team fielding, which at the start of the game was sharp, seemed to deteriorate as Sterns was dropped twice in two overs. The onslaught abated only once when Haig and Marshall held the bats- men down for 5 overs, but as Reed drove a fine cover shot for four. U.C.C. retired 50 for 1, L.B.F. Champions for 1966. It was a humiliating defeat - one that was not indicative of this year's Bigside. But it was the freshman year for our first full season on Bigside for most of the players. The fielding, sharp against S.A.C. and Kingston C.C., had deserted the team, the bowling never settled down and no one batter came forward, as last year, with a high scoring innings. Our heartiest congratulations to a strong and capable U.C.C. team on their winning the Championship. But a warning is issued to all L.B.F. schools. Our Tiki Dolls did not work because the rainy season this year was late. Next year, it will be a hot dry spring! 86 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD MIDDLE IDD DlllDllD'l' Captain's Report This year's Middleside team was truly unique. We had a unique record, played on unique pitches, and attained a unique spirit. The team didn't win any games this year, which was largely due to our lack of talent. Our bowling and fielding was sharp at times, but it also let us down ter- ribly on occasions. The season's batting also left something to be desired. However, the team did show noticeable improvement in both attitude and skill throughout the season. It is only unfortunate that we had so little time in which to develop this. A word on the team spirit: Middleside, although often trounced by opposing teams, never lost interest or enjoyment in cricket. I feel that it is safe to say on behalf of the team that we all gave our best, and as a result thoroughly enjoyed our season. Much of this We owe to our coach, Mr. Goering, who managed to persevere through hard times, and even come out smiling at the end. We would like to thank him for a Very unique and enjoyable season. -Dick McLernon, Captain MIDDLESIDE SUMMARY Middleside vs. Hillfield Lost 37-33 Middleside vs. Toronto Cricket Club Lost 139-37 Middleside vs. Ajax Cricket Club Lost 196-99 Middleside vs. Lakefield Lost 49 for 3 -48 Middleside vs. U.C.C.

Middleside's Campbell and Blake opened for 'l'.t'.S. with slightly more than ninety minutes of playing time remaining, and were met hy fast bowling and a very alert field.

'l'.t'.S., with a total of thirty-four runs, were soundly beaten by a strong Upper Vanada team. High batsmen for Middleside were Mcliernon with nine runs and Kent with eight.

Then, due to the combined bowling efforts of Cakebread and Lewis, the last five wickets fell in rapid succession and St. Andrew's retired for a total of 80 runs. Bob Cawley and Tim Blake were the openers for T.C.S. and they man- aged to stay at bat for 18 overs before Blake was bowled by Buckner. However, for the rest of the game, some of our usually productive batters failed to connect, although Cakebread hit 21 runs before he was caught. It was during this game that Rick Kent sustained a dislocated knee- cap when he tried to hit a ball on the off. tHe was caught out.J For the rest of the season we were without the services of Rick who was one of our better batters. T.C.S. was finally out for a grand total of 69 runs, only twelve short of victory. MIDDLESIDE vs. RIDLEY At Port Hope May 23 Lost: 58-26 The game got under way at one o'clock and Middleside promptly got down to business, felling the first three wickets in three overs for only four runs. However, Ridley batsmen Morris and Carter managed to hit for twenty-five runs to keep their side alive. The last Ridley batsmen were run out after just one hour and twenty minutes of playing time. They managed to obtain only fifty-eight runs, which was a pleasant re- ward for Middleside's best fielding display of the season. Campbell picked up six of our wickets. However, Ridley fast bowlers Eastman and Butler quickly dashed our hopes of an easy victory by bowling three maiden wicket overs at the start of our innings. Things looked considerably brighter though, when Camp- bell and Cakebread started a good stand aimed at wearing down the fast bowlers. That is, until Cakebread, with a stroke of bad luck, played him- self off his own wickets for only five runs. As it turned out, Campbell was the only bright spot in our batting, and he obtained half of our twenty-six run total. Ridley spin bowler Barnum was remarkable, felling seven wickets for only six runs. We congratulate Ridley on their Victory. MIDDLESIDE vs. U.C.C. At Port Hope May 25 Lost..105-33 U.C.C. arrived to try and clinch a second win against Middleside. They won the toss and chose to bat first. From the opening overs it appeared as if T.C.S. might make a comeback - Magee and Osler took 6 wickets for 39 runs. However the bowlers faced two batters with extremely good eyes and the score rose quickly till they finally retired with 105 runs. Osler and Magee each took another wicket, giving them 4 apiece, while Camp- bell and Cakebread both bowled a single. U.C.C. bowling was deadly, and eight T.C.S. batters retired with ducks. McLoughlin made the only creditable score, with 17 runs. While for our part it was disappointing to lose by such a large score, we extend heartiest congratulations to U.C.C. on their perfect season.

The team had one outstanding feature: it was able to rise to an occasion when everyone thought that all was lost. The bowling' was very efifeient, and won many games. The fielding improved greatly as the season went on, with some fine eatehing done by Robson and Vines. C. W. R. Scott stopped many double runs with quick returns from square leg. Batting was the weak spot of the team. as most of our scores indicate. and improved only slightly as the season drew to a Close. I would like to thank Mr. Godfrey for taking' the time to take a team with hardly any showing potential. Ilis 'fast bowling" was always a sight - until we heard the musical tinkle of falling' bailsf Mr. Jones also de- serves our thanks and we wish him luck when he returns to England. -Tom Ilarnett, Vaptain -F - , s-' .

At Port Hope May 11 Lost 105-41 Littleside began its L.B.F. season playing U.C.C., always a potential threat. The weather during the game was cold and cloudy, which ac- counted somewhat for the poor showing of the team. Our batting was not good enough to beat a team which was both bowling and batting Well. U.C.C. won the toss and elected to bat first. Barnett opened the bowling, followed by Robson, who soon dismissed the first batters for ten runs. After that, however, the game progressed more slowly, with U.C.C. batters hitting well-placed balls through the fielders. By tea, U.C.C. was all out for 105, Heintzman and Brooke scoring 17 and 24 runs respectively. U.C.C. bowled and fielded very well after tea, and T.C.S. had trouble scoring runs. After a short time U.C.C. had put Littleside all out for 41 runs. McGregor and Robson were the best batsmen, hitting 23 runs between them. This game was not such a loss as it seems, for it gave us some valu- able practice in both fielding and batting. U.C.C., though, certainly de- serves our congratulations for a decisive victory. LITTLESIDE vs. S.A.C. At Port Hope May 14 Won 36-17 Our second I,.B.F. match found our fielding and bowling much im- pi-ovecl. However, the team's batting was not as good as the final score 1 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 91 reflects. The weather was hot with an occasional cool breeze - ideal for cricket. S.A.C. won the toss and chose to field. They bowled well and our wickets began to fall thick and fast. However McGregor and Vakebread batted well, scoring 15 and 12 runs respectively. After seventeen overs S.A.C. had put T.C.S. all out for 36. Robson began bowling for T.C.S. and from then on 'l'.C'.S. had the game under its belt. Robson bowled an excellent over, a hat-trick maiden. had S.A.C. at one point 6 for 3. By tea-time S.A.f'. was all out or . Despite the low score, the game was very exciting and showed new- comers to cricket that not all cricket games are dull. LITTLESIDE vs. RIDLEY At Port Hope May 23 Won 79-45 T.C.S. won the toss and chose to field first. Littleside's bowling was very accurate and effective. Although the boundaries were short, Ridley scoring was kept to a minimum by alert fielding and they were all out for 45 runs surprisingly soon. Barnett bowled exceptionally well, taking 8 wickets. T.C.S. went to bat with mixed feelings. The score was not large but our batting had proved itself weak in previous matches. The tail-end especially had been extremely weak, and with the score standing 43 for 7, tantalisingly close, victory was still not yet assured. But this match was an exception, for the last few batsmen almost doubled our score. Campbell batted very well, scoring 17 runs at the tail-end. Robson, al- ways a strong batter, hit 19. Littleside played very well in this game, displaying all it had learned during the season, and beat Ridley for the first time in a number of years. LITTLESIDE vs. U.C.C. At Toronto May 25 Lost 52-39 We played U.C.C. for the second time on a hot day, much improved since our first encounter of the season. Littleside fielded first, having won the toss. Although L'.C.'.C'. batted well, Barnett and Robson as usual bowled well. keeping down the number of runs and putting U.C.C. all out for 52. U.C.C. bowling was accurate and fast, taking a high toll of T.C.S. wickets. Robson ran up a very creditable 20 runs, and retired not out, but none of the other batsmen could produce, and Littleside fell fourteen runs short of victory. Nevertheless we played much better in this match than in our home game, and considerably closed the gap in number of runs scored. But U.C.C. played well in both, and we congratulate them on two well-deserved CRICKET ll0lillUll.' Full Bigside: H. A. P. Little, M. D. P. Marshall, G. P. St. G. O'Brian. E. J. Wright.

Wins. 92 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD IHIGIIEII Captain's Report lt has been a memorable year for rugger in the School. After three years ot' reaching the semi-finals, we finally climbed all the way to the top and won the Ontario Championships. But had you asked any of the First Team what they enjoyed most of all about the season, they would say not the Ontario's, but the Kawartha league. Most of our season was played against the Peterborough high schools. We met each team twice, giving us a more realistic idea of our worth. To me, the high point of the season was beating P.C.V.S. 10-5. This team went on to win the overtime game and from there they won the open Ontario title. It was the T.C.S. seniors who were the only team all season to defeat or even score a try on this crack Peterborough squad. After our subsequent heart-breaking defeat in the final, we Walked oft' the field talking with and complimenting the P.C.V.S. players. That game was perhaps the hardest I have ever seen a T.C.S. team play. After an exhausting tooth and nail series with each other we had built up a mutual respect and friendship which I have never before seen develop in another sport. Perhaps one of the most gratifying aspects of the season is that rugger has finally achieved the status of a half-Bigside sport. No longer are we the mad dogs and the Englishmen who play in the mud and rain. We have represented the School to the best of our ability, and in return, the School has rewarded us with recognition. Nevertheless I must stress that our whole season was played on the understanding that no colours would be awarded. We played solely for the love of the game. All the team joins with me in extending our thanks to our coach, Mr. Franklin. He taught us not only the game, but also what is more valuable, the right spirit in which to play it. Never taking the game too seriously nor too lightly, he allowed us to enjoy rugger. It was incidental that we won. -Jonathan Stobie, Captain KAWARTHA LEAGUE First Team PLAYED: 9 WON: 7 LOST: 2 TOTAL POINTS FOR: 125 AGAINST: 16 INDIVIDUAL SCORING: Stobie 89, Noble 9, Vaisler 9, Tittemore 6, Camp 3, Crossley 3, Frostad 3, Jones 3.

This year the rugger team finally found itself playing some extensive rugger. We entered two teams in a league with Cobourg, Crestwood, Kenner and P.C'.V.S. In the form of a round robin tournament, we played two games every Wednesday and Saturday and met every team twice. The second team tied for third - a very commendable effort, con- sidering they were playing against the high schools' first teams. Our TRINITY COl.l.Elili SCHOOL Rlit'ORlJ 93 Q air.

Kenner offered some better games, but our stiff competition came from P.t'.Y.S. Our first game with P.C.Y.S. we lost 0-5. We might have won this game but the experience and confidence of the Petes told. when they scored on a grub-kick. It was the very final game of the season when we faced them again. In the interim both teams had been undefeated and the Peterborough club had been unscored upon. We had to win this even to aspire to the coveted championships. Spirits were high as we faced them in an extra long final game. Within a few minutes ol' the Opening, the P.C'.Y.S. scrum-half caught us offguard on a penalty kick to take the lead 5-0. But before the half was ended Stoliie took the ball around the blind side for 65 yards to tie the game. A dismayed Veter- borough side lost some of their bounce and in the second half, llob Noble crashed his way across to win the game 10-5, tying us for first place with P.C.V.S. in the league standings. The tension mounted. A Ill-minute overtime gamie was to decide the Championship. This game was rather an anti-climax lin more ways than onell being marred by over-zealous reI'ereeing and at tremendous amount of penalties. It was only fitting. though. that Martin. the P.C.V.S.

The first team was never seriously challenged as they disposed of U.C.C. 11-0 and S.A.C. 8-0. Against a heavy, powerful S.A.C. scrum, Crossley, Williams and Jones did an outstanding job in controlling both scrums and line outs, making the jobs of the backs relatively easy. The Juniors completely overwhelmed a small, young U.C.C. squad 21-3 and no less convincingly thwarted S.A.C. 8-0. It is significant that both Senior and Junior defenses were so good that the opposition never crossed our line once. The U.C.C. juniors scored their three points on a penalty kick.

On a very hot May 23, the two teams went to King City to meet other teams from across the province. It was an all day affair played on a complex of pitches. The juniors met with mediocre success, facing rather stiff competi- tion. Lack of rugger instinct let the side down as from time to time there were periods of mass disorganization. Frostad played hard every game to amass a total of 11 individual points. Elcock, as the only experi- enced player, did a great deal to keep the team together. After three years, the seniors finally did it. They won the Ontario Championships! In their first game they swept Thornbury 16-3 and then proceeded to demolish Brantford 13-0. Against S.A.C., whom they had beaten earlier this season, they squeezed out a 6-5 win, hoping to save their energy for the anticipated finals. Then came the game which had been in the making all season. The first seven took to the field against North Park of Brantford, who had run roughshod over their division and had held the cup for the past two years. As might be expected, the game was tight and tense, characterized by a lot of kicking, neither side willing to take a chance. In the scrums, the heavier North Park props gave them the advantage, but their hooker was no match for Dave Jones, who con- tinually got the ball back faster than our scrum was being pushed! With a minute left in the game and the score still 0-0, Stobie at stand-off took a pass from Tittemore and sliced through the defence to score between the posts. The convert was good, the whistle went, and the cup was ours! ltlllllllilt CIILUUIIS Full Bigside: J. C. K. Stobie Half Bigside: P. A. Crossley, W. H. Elcock, D. W. B. Jones, R. B. Noble, J. A.

Y' . mor an Finn The Track Team enjoyed a relatively successful season this spring - our thanks to Messrs. Prower and Hargraft, whose time and effort con- tributed to that success. Individual standings were a better indication of the team's ability than were the overall scores at the three track meets. Whereas the T.t'.S. team was comprised of about fifteen keen runners, other schools. both private and public, put forward two and three times that number. Given the long awaited cinder track and some encouragement from the School, the Track Team could develop its full potential as a School sport rather than a 'spring pastime'.

Athletes who placed fourth or better in their various district meets assembled in Trenton - repre- sentatives from approximately seventy-five different high schools. Thus it was quite an achievement even to qualify for the meet, much less place ln lt. Of the six T.C.S. athletes competing, the following three placed fourth or better in their events.

Bull Pllll'l' lllli Sports Day, held this year on Tuesday, May 16, produced just as much entertainment as in previous years - perhaps more, because of the closeness of the competition between the two houses. Bethune led for most of the afternoon. However, towards the end, Brent swept into a twenty point lead. Although Bethune nearly managed to close the gap. Brent House hung onto her lead and won by a narrow three point margin: 148-145. No running records were broken this year, perhaps because of the soggy condition of the track, and a relatively strong southerly breeze. However, Robin Armstrong sailed over the high jump bar at 5'7' I" to beat the old School mark by Lt". In the junior competition, Jim Robson heaved the shot put 46'2", to smash the six year old record by Results follow below: 100 yards: Junior - 1. Bull, E. A.: 2. McGregor: 3. Robson, J.

Thanks are due to both Mr. Franklin and Mr. Moisdon for their assistance through- out the season. We had five matches scheduled, but after our first encounter with Upper Canada, they decided to cancel the second! St. Andrews also cancelled their match. However, we did play Hillfield, lfppei' Canada and Ridley. Hillfield Our first match was played at T.C.S., and was rather one-sided. We defeated Hillfield 4-0 in matches, Kaminis and McCallum playing singles, while the two doubles teams consisted of Nick Cabell and Keith Kennedy, and Tom Molson and John Carsley. ' U.C.C. L'.t'.C. was a different story. Under adverse conditions such as un- familiar slippery courts, we were defeated 3-1 in matches. Cabell, at No. 2 singles, scored our only win. Ridley The most successful game of the year was against Ridley. Kaminis was edged out at No. 1, but McCallum and Kennedy each won his game in three sets. Cabell and Segal formed a formidable pair and defeated their doubles opponents in the closest match of the day. Molson and Varsley wrapped up the meet for us with an easy victory, making the final score -1-1 for T.C.S. 1' ffl: -ftgf I -.Y . 1 0 ,V ' - - X . -Lf 1 aw.: N I .

TIME The golden grain of sand that slips through the hour-glass, the tide, the sun, the moon: Time. A day, a month, a year, a person, a place, a feeling: Time. A young boy, an old man, a grave: Time. A seagull gliding overhead, two ships passing in the night, a wheel turning, a birth, a death : Time. And still the endless grains of sand keep falling .... falling. -Graham Ambrose, IIA2 LEAF-CYCLE He hung upon the crown, Then fell into a mound, Breaking ties with motherland, A lost soul, in a pile of sand. Fluttering, fluttering, He descends the windy ladder, And spends a lifeless purgatory With a stratified ancestor. Then when Spring returns again, He's gathered up in bags, And sends his bursting life anew Until the branches sag. -R. S. D. Ambrose, IIAU 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 109 A MOMENT WITH A PRISM I was in a room, The sun shone On the prism. I passed, And as I passed, It seemed To wink At me. I stared at its blazing fury And turned away quickly. For moments I stood, Blinded 3 But gradually my sight returned. I faced the wall Thereg 'Splayed before me Were all The colours of a rainbow. A cloud passed And the room was lonely. -C. Baker, IIB1 PROGRESS The tree stood in the forest for three hundred years. He towered head and shoulders above his fellows, Their proud king. It had survived fire, flood, winter and summer drought, But now men came, like a swarm of beetles, Crowding together. Their chain saws roared, ripping at the giant Which shuddered before their impact. Then with stately dignity it fell, Crushing lesser trees in its wake. Now it lies lifeless on the forest floor, But progress rushes on. -B. J. Patterson, IIAU THE STORM Gradually the sky grows black. The lightning flashes and creases the sky In an angry jagged line. Ominous clouds crowd overhead, The thunder roars and the clouds unfold In a downfall of tears. The storm continues on and on, Then the clouds recede and the rains end In a colourful rainbow. --N. B. Grandfield. IIAU IIU TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD QUESTIONS OF THE HEART What is a heart, a complex thing? It runs the body, it governs the mind.

Molson 0 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD 111 LOST IN THE DESERT Peter Murray gazed at the miles of yellow sand dunes before him. He was lost. Above him the sun burned down relentlessly. Two vultures circled the cloudless sky, their flapping wings and dorisive cries breaking the desert stillness. Peter turned and began walking toward the sun. The desert swam before his eyes and a mirage wavered on the horizon. He fell unconscious. Some time later his eyes flickered open, and he felt a comfortable sensation of drowsiness and well-being. Even the hard, gritty sand felt as soft as a mattress. His old school chum Robert leaned Over him and beckoned him to rise. Peter stood up and greeted his friend, but some- thing half-forgotten clicked at the back of his mind. He had it! Robert was dead. The sand was no longer hard and the sun had lost its burning heat as the two friends tramped across the desert. Peter felt relief and hap- piness as he tired, aching, worn-out body faded behind him. -B. J. Patterson, IIAU THE STORM The sea was filled with rage, And the sky with anger, As eight strong men and I set out. I watched the keen, able sailors As toss and fall, roll and pitch Sent me to my knees. As the sea began to boil, Hopes of making shore were dim, Yet this storm must end somehow, In the port of heaven or the port of hell. The calm did come, Spreading light upon the untamed sea, The Sea of Adulthood. And when the Storm comes again, I shall be keen in the ways of the Storm, The Storm of Life. -P. Morris, IIR1 DIVERS OF ACAPULCO I The great waves crash down against the jagged rock, when in the day, the blue of sea a11d sky fills every heart with joy! When in the night, the black cold roaring sea alarms every person's soul! TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD II Steady remains the brave diver. Then, as he sails through the air everyone holds his breath until he reappears! And if, in five minutes or less no sign of him is seen, everyone mournsg when abruptly he returns. Triumphant! Victorious! Again to try that great rocky cliff of danger. -R. Forbes, IIB1 LITTLE BROWN MOUSE The quiet little fieldmouse, Brown with eyes of black, Ran down the alley behind the house To find some food from the garbage cans. Two eyes of green upon a fence, Glared on the little brown mouse, But the mouse turned, Saw the cat, And ran like a flash Inside the end of a garden hose. Out the other end of the hose, The mouse ran wild as a deer, The cat sniffed at the other end, And lost his little brown mouse. The terrified brown mouse Ran like the wind, Swift as a turtle upon a horse, He ran He ran He ran Till he reached the big heavy cans. He found in a package a chocolate bar, He filled his stomach right to the brim, Then, staggering back, He met with the cat, Ran all the way home, And never came back. -R.-G. Ward, IIB1 4 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD UNKNOWN SECURITY Restless and moping, Cramped in a tiny cage, A hamster: Oft forgotten, mistreated, unwanted. Awaits a chalice of escape. The chance comes and is taken. The little ball of fur, Careless with joy, Steps into freedom. Jumping to the carpet, Scurrying to a crack in the And disappearing, The tiny thing finds itself In an immense darkness Beyond all imagination. Seized by panic, Loneliness, Despair, It turns about And, retracing footsteps, returns Meekly and humbly To the security of understanding. wall And yet next day. Restless and moping, Cramped in a tiny cage. This same hamster, Oft forgotten, mistreated, unwanted, Awaits a chance of escape. 113 -D. Moffatt, IIB! THE AGE OF SUNSET Sunset is a man's life. The first shade, pink, the colour of a baby's suit, Then, red, a child's bleeding cut, The colours mix to the confused teenager, The blending completes for the perfect adult Then, fading, Sunset shows signs of straing Slowly, the light weakens and old age shows, Finally, night, and the end. -S. Wilson, IIBI TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOCL RECORD CANNONBALL ln his dazzling white asbestos suit, the cannonball walks across the painted circus arena. Ile mounts the ladder and slips down the barrel of the red cannon. With a resounding crash, and a spurt of flame, the oversized air-gun sends the Cannonball flying through the air with the greatest of ease. Doing rolls, and flips, and swings on trapezes, the highlight of the show falls until he hits the side of the net, hard. A hush falls over the Crowd until the Cannonball is helped up, limping. R.

The snow - it makes you want to jump. roll, and crawl in it. Too soon your fun is all over- The driveway and sidewalks- they must be cleaned. Oh well, it was worth it! -M. Heffernan, IIB1 A SPARK OF GREEN Only a blade of grass: Only a speck on a surging sea of green. This one, here, is the same as all the rest, Except for one delicate distinction. Resembling in its own way An individual. Tossed on the sea of humanity, Buffeted by the strong winds of trouble, Relieved in the quiet coolness of the calm. And still, it staunchly holds its separate character. Which remains unchanged among many others. Only a blade of grass .... Only a speck on a surging sea of green. -C. G. Newell. IIHI BLACK Since early times black has been man's foe. Black was the colour of night. Black was the colour of man's cave when he had no firelight. Man learned to fear black. As time went on, man worked to conquer the dark with bright lights, yet his fear of blackness did not fade. Man despised this colour, it was ugly and frightening. So black was used to show man's death and mourning. If black is the colour of a man's skin he is beaten, murdered, hated, and treated as an animal. Man has never lost his fear of the colour black. -P. Morris. llB1 116 TRINITY COLLEGE SCHOOL RECORD WHITE White is a seemingly bright and expressionless colour, if you may call it a colour at all, but to me it is far more than that. White is the cool and gentle cleanliness of new sparkling sheets. White is also the crisp freshness and rigidness of a blank piece of paper. White is the variable and flexible colour which an artist uses to make a wider range of colours for his oil picture. It means the dazzling, crusty surface of a heavy snowfall glazed with the frost of early morning. But to me, white is the honesty, pureness, valour and cleanliness which is really the freedom you and I are given to cherish. -G. Collins, IIB1 THE END The autumn evening was cool and brisk, and I was out for a long walk to clear my head. In the suburbs of the city, one can get fresh air and still be near people. I had done this many times before but tonight I felt especially refreshed and I revelled in the new surge of life which spread throughout my body. A distant siren blared into the night. A second soon joined it, and then a third, until it seemed a hundred giants were singing the same end- less note with the heavens echoing the maddening pitch. A woman ran out into the road. She was wearing a nightgown. "It's war!" she cried, "the bomb is coming, we're doomed!" She fell on her knees, weeping and praying for God's forgiveness. I stood open-mouthed, before the terrible realization of what was happening came upon me. Lights were going on in all the surrounding houses. A car raced down the road towards the weeping woman and swerved past her. Another car roared down the street, this one carried a whole family, all trying to escape death. But this one, unlike the first car, made no attempt to miss the woman, it struck her and rushed On, as if she had been a mere puff of smoke. People were rushing out of their houses now, women with babies in their arms tugging small children behind them. Two motorcycles roared by, but this time the black jacketed toughs were running away, afraid of something far bigger than they. Three more cars backed out of drive- ways and raced away like frightened hares. By this time the sirens had ceased to wail and I was left standing in silence. -G.

Archibald Vice-Captain P. F. Wilkes Played - 6, Won - 3, Drew - 1, Lost - 2. The First XI had a much better record than one might have expected in April. Archibald led, encouraged and showed the way in all our games - a very able captain. The side, as a whole, was always capable of pro- ducing runs and with more experience will do so. Our strength was in our good fielding and a strong Bowling Staff - Gibson, Wilkes, Doyle and Haig. Our weakness was a persistent stroke that gave an easy catch to the close leg-man - experience can correct this. All of these players ought to play on many winning sides in future years. D. Gibson was our best bowler over the season, with an average of 3.8 runs per wicket and R. Doyle won batting honours with 9.5 runs per inning. Wilkes held the most catches C51 over the season. Colours: First XI Cricket Colours were awarded to the following players: -C. S. Archibald fCaptain1, P. F. Wilkes KVice-Captain1, J. R. Doyle, D. C. Gibson, N. B. Grandfield, J. C. Haig, R. G. Keefer, D. C. O'Kell, J. E. Sands, S. C. Wilson. Half-Colours: R. W. F. Rogers, K. F. Davies MATCHES Saturday, May 14th, T.C.S. at Appleby The first game found us playing without the best bowler, thanks to the measles. Everyone else played a bit harder and the bowling was a little better than hoped for. T.C.S. : 93 CS. Wilson 33, Rogers 15, Sands 13, Haig 101 Appleby: 45 fWilkes 5 wickets for 19 runs1 Wednesday, May 18th, Lakefield XI at T.C.S. Batting first, we struggled against the Grove's very able bowling. being all out for 66. Lakefield openers batted strongly against us and with two wickets down for 42 runs, the rains came. Although it appears as if the rain saved us from our first loss, we shall never be sure as an excellent finish seemed to be in the making. T.C.S. : 66 CDoyle 391 Grove : 42 for two wickets Saturday, May 21st, T.C.S. at S.A.C. Our first L.B.F. game was an exciting match. Putting S.A.C. into bat first, we managed to get them all out for 58 runs. We did not pass their score until we had lost 8 wickets. An excellent tail wagged for us here and produced 42 runs. T.C.S. : 71 fWilkes 17, Gibson 15, O'Kell 11, Archibald 81 S.A.C. : 58 CGibson 4 wickets for 16 runs, Wilkes 4 for 121 Wednesday, May 25th, U.C.C. at T.C.S. Our second L.B.F. game saw us reach both a batting and bowling level that was not to be repeated this season. The bowling by both Gibson and Wilkes was extremely accurate, the fielding very good and the bat- ting both confident and forceful. T.C.S. : 78 fArchibald 19, Doyle 15, Sands 14, O'Kell 131 L'.C.C. : 22 fWilkes 7 wickets for 14 runs, Gibson 3 for 131 lic? 3, NITY COl.l,lili1-I SVHOOI.

June lst, T.C.S. at Lakefield Second XI In the return match with the Grove, our own mistakes helped us beat ourselves as we had 3 careless run outs. However, Lakefield's fielding was very good and their bowling more than effective against us. It was a well deserved win for the Grove. T.C.S. : 37 tKeefer 111 Grove : 70 CGibson 4 wickets for 24 runs, Doyle 4 for 231 Tuesday. June 7th, T.C.S. vs. Ridley at the Toronto Cricket Club For the second consecutive year on this field, we dismissed Ridley for less than 50 runs - and for the second year in a row, feeling con- fident, we were scuttled for a lesser amount - much less. Our fielding was good, our bowling excellent, but our batting left something to be desired. Perhaps another time, we ought to use our familiar mat in- stead of the turf. T.C.S. : 12 fGibson 61 Ridley : 47 CGibson 7 wickets for 15 runs1 SECOND XI MATCHES The Second XI played well all season. Our fielding was always good, and the bowling staff fWard, Jameson, Lindop, Brown1 was the strength of the team. Our batting was powerful ti.e. 4 or nothing1 but lacked a proper defensive stroke when most needed. However, we enjoyed our- selves and gained useful experience for next season. J. Steer was an ex- cellent Captain and a good wicket-keeper. Many thanks to Mr. Perry for all his assistance in nets and time batting. May 14th, T.C.S. : 24 CSteer 71. Appleby: 58.

Although no new records were established, the competition be- tween the two houses, Orchard and Rigby, was of the highest quality. Having, for the first time in history, tied in swimming with 84 points each, the competitors of both houses were determined to clinch the Sports Day Trophy with a conclusive victory. It was a see-saw battle throughout the afternoon, and the result, much to the amazement of all those present, was another tie: Orchard House with 84 points, Rigby House with 84 points! J. R. Doyle was the grand aggregate winner in the open events with wins in the hundred yard dash and broad jump, and a second in the two- twenty yard dash. J. W. Seagram was runner-up with a win in the four- forty, a second in the broad jump, and a third in the two-twenty. S. C. Wilson won the Junior Aggregate Trophy with victories in the one hundred, two-twenty and broad jump, and a third place in the high jump. Runner-up was G. M.

As a result most of the races were close and there were three record-breaking performances. For the first time the Meet was a tie, both Rigby and Orchard Houses scoring 84 points. ln the open division, C. Haig won the 40 yard free-style, 40 yard hack-stroke, and 100 yard free-style for Rigby: and R. Rogers Won the -10 yard breast-stroke for Orchard. ll. l-loucher won all the junior events, setting records of 22.6 seconds in the 40 yard free-style and 33.0 seconds in the 40 yard breast-stroke. llis winning time in the 40 yard back-stroke was only .9 seconds off the record ot' 29.3 seconds. The two Houses split in winning the four-man relays. Rigby House won the Senior relay in a record time of 45.5 seconds, and Orchard won the Junior division. Haig and Boucher, as the aggregate winners in their respective divisions, are excellent prospects for the Senior School Swim Team.
