Patriotism With a blast of 'God Save The Queen' from the band, the Guard of Honour gave the Royal Salute. The grey-haired man on the podium smiled and tipped his hatto thelinesofcadets as cameras whirred and clicked catching every motion he made. The parents craned for a good look at the Governor General. They ran off in whatever direction he was led and prayed like mad that he would come over and speak to them. On the other hand, however, few boys were impressed. This is perhaps the greatest difference between Canadian parents and children. The older people are still very much impressed by appearance and name alone. They have great respect for a Governor or a Queen, even if they don't know if either of them has done anything for the country in twenty years. In the case of the Governor General, it is obvious he is an outstanding diplo- mat. However, there are people who would have been much better suited to open the newbuildings. The chairman of the board that organized the expansion plan had far more right to open the buildings than anyone else. He and his fellow board members had worked hard for sbt years and what should have been their moment of triumph was given away as a cameo role to the Governor General for the sole purpose of attrac- ting more people and hence more money to the School. I wish for once that our elders would realize that T.C.S. is T.C.S. regardless of who opens the buildings and that it's a worthwhile place to invest money because it's a school not an exclusive social club. Page 19 I! Mft. Parents are impressed by Governor Generals and the Queen, and, it is interesting to note, by the military. Most boys detest everything cadets stand for because it is completely contrary to all their ideals. Yet parents somehow respect a man who wears a uniform and carries his shoulders as straight as can be. lt is an interesting question why they are so fond of military training. I think it is a reflection of the war years all our parents went through. It has left them with the strange idea thatpartofdevelopinginto manhood is to learn to take orders without question. They see all boys who were not cadets or soldiers as something incomplete, something effeminate. Along the same lines, parents love Great Britain. or anything British. I think the attitude of war memories are reflected here. Therefore, I feel that our elders are in a terrible rut. They are, in fact, living their lives with the memories and attitudes of a country at war. If we, as a world, want to continue in peace. we must rid ourselves of all the militant and war worshipping attitudes that are so apparent in our parents.
