VOLUME I. VANCOUVER. B.C. 6)4e (%e Vancouver College History VANCOUVER COLLEGE was founded in 1922 by the Christian Brothers. For the first three years the Brothers conducted classes in the building adjacent to Holy Rosary Cathedral. In the fall of 1925 the new school building at 39th and Cartier was ready for occupation and both staff and students moved there for the new school year. At the same time accommo- dation was provided for a limited number of resident students. Two years later, due to the generosity of Mr. J. D. McCormack, K.S.G., additional accommodation was provided by the new wing, McCormack Hall. This year a new recreation hall is being completed which will provide playing space for handball, midget bas- ketball, junior badminton and rifle range for the cadets, [ 5 ] RELIGION. Each day carries one period of thirty minutes during which secular study ceases in every class to give place to Christian Doctrine. The course in Relig- ion strives to instruct the boy in the knowl- edge of Christian Doc- trine, making him thor- oughly conversant with the foundations of his Faith and of the Church. RIM. The Christian Broth- ers aim at impa rting a thoroughly sound relig- ious and moral training. At the same time they equip their students in- tellectually and physi- cally to take their posi- tions in life, according to their chosen careers. LIBRARY DIRECTION.

D D ARCHBISHOP OF VANCOUVER WHO TAKES A KEEN INTEREST IN VANCOUVER COLLEGE The Faculty Vancouver College is staffed by the Christian Brothers of Ireland. They are an international Teach- ing Order, founded over a century and a half ago in the city of Water- ford, Ireland, by Edmund Ignatius Rice, a well-to-do merchant who, appalled by the lack of educational facilities due to the Penal Laws, retired from business to devote both his wealth and his life to establish his great teaching Order. With the founding of their first school in 1802, the Brothers ' schools spread rapidly throughout Ireland and later, since education is not the monopoly of any one nation, to for- eign lands. Today with schools and colleges in Ireland, England, India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Gibraltar — now sus- pended for the " duration " — and New- foundland, the Brothers have carried a great and noble work to all corners of the Empire. And in this hour of trial and battle their alumni are carrying on, " thumbs up " , in the spheres of politics, diplomacy, and soldiering. BR. F. M. DOHERTY BROTHER E. B. WALSH: PRINCIPAL Brother E.

Zahar. Fathers’ Club Achieves Much Behind the College grid machine of last fall, behind the advertising of the games, behind the ticket sales, was the Fathers ' Club. Working quietly, it was, nevertheless, an or- ganization running in high gear, and performed yeoman service in putting the football season across. So effic- iently did the Dads function that it drew the comment of such sports- writers as Hal Pawsons of the Herald: " Behind the College team is the Boosters ' Club, composed of the fath- ers of the Irishers, giving the boys on the gridiron one hundred per cent, support to a man. At yesterday ' s game they packed the park with a thousand customers and with the support their sons are giving in the way of play and colour they should get 1,500 to the next games. Budnick fields the team; the Fathers fill the stands — an ideal combination. " At the conclusion of the season the Fathers ' Club threw a football ban- quet, at which the City sportswriters and sportcasters attended; the guest of honour and main speaker being Bobby Morris, veteran referee in the Pacific Coast Conference, who has handled several Rose Bowl games and had interesting anecdotes to tell about grid stars and personalities. In the production of the Annual and the entertainment, " Cadets on Parade " , the Club has also been act- ive, taking part in the sales promo- tion and the ad. campaign. f 14] The Mothers’ Club Active Mothers ' Club Has Successful Year. MRS. E. M. HERB PRESIDENT With the close of the present term, the curtain falls on another success- ful year for the Mothers ' Club. A heavy schedule of activities was un- dertaken and carried out completely and efficiently. The Sewing Circle met faithfully every Wednesday and did much useful work, repairing clothes , mak- ing altar-boy cassocks, quilts, and iinen sheeting. Mrs. O. J. Walmsley was the convenor of the group, which included Mesdames J. A. Legree, F. Brewer, M. McGinley, A. Brabant, H. N. Galer, A. A. Egan, J. Norton, C. F. Gilbert and F. Ryan. The Annual Reunion Banquet was as usual in the hands of the Club with Mrs. C. McKillop and Mrs. E. P. Mulhern convenors. Later a committee con- sisting of Mesdames E. Herb, J. Crane, J. Farry, L. McPhie, assisted in putting on the Fathers ' Football banquet. On January 22, the An- nual Membership Tea was held at the College, Mrs. A. B. Calkins con- vening. In May a B. C. Products Luncheon was held at Spencer ' s with Mrs. R. Egan as convenor. During the year meetings were held on the second Monday of each month. The Club executive elected MRS. J. A. LEGREE PAST-PRESIDENT at the beginning of the year was: Mrs. E. M. Herb, President; Mrs. J. B. Crane, Vice-president; Mrs. J. F. Farry, Treasurer; Mrs. L. McPhie, Secretary. At the Membership Tea held in January the following list of mem- bers was compiled: Mesdames G. Alexander, A. Adams, J. F. Burns, F. Boreham, F. Brewer, A. B. Calkins, J. B. Crane, C. Claman, G. G.

[ 15 ] DENHAM KELSEY VALEDICTORIAN The ’41 Graduate The Senior Graduate more than anyone else understands the impres- sion a good school has made on him. As he looks back on his life at school he senses, lor the first time perhaps, that a very definite plan has con- trolled his education. His studies have been fashioned not only to give knowledge, but also a deeper un- derstanding of life and its problems. His recreation has been ordered not only to pass away the idle hours but also to discover his aptitudes and develop his hidden talents. Most of all, however, his religious life has been shaped and stimulated not only to formulate habits of proper conduct but also to give him an understand- ing why one thing is right and an- other wrong. We, the graduates of 1941, realize our position. Our carefree boyhood days are over. We are men and, as men, it is our obligation, an obliga- tion even more binding in these troubled days, to carry on as useful members of our community and worthy citizens of our Dominion. Our ways of achieving this objective will differ. Some of us will go into the active services; a few will go on to University to fulfil a cherished am- bition as doctor or engineer; still others will go out to work and sus- tain Canada ' s war effort. But wher- ever our paths lead, we know we have had the training and instruc- tion to direct our steps aright. We trust the day will never be when the College will be disappointed in us, but may rather as a proud Alma Mater look with pleasure on the lives and careers of the Graduates of ' 41.

Denham, scholar extraordin- ary and all-round jolly good fellow, is a V.C. ancient, having first enrolled at the College in Grade Six. He has the unique record of having headed every class he has been in. He is Quartermaster Sergeant in the Cadet Corps and Secretary on the Students ' Council. Denham plans to be a Chartered Accountant. William O ' Neil . . . Genial, smiling Bill is Presi- dent of the class, and also of the Students ' Council; also heads the College Corps with rank of Cadet Major. He is a painstaking student Avith a course leaning to the sciences, intends to go in for civil engineering. His excellent bass has been invaluable in the Glee Club in the past; he has sung the role of Joseph in the Choral Presentation ' ' The First Nativity " . Kevin Doyle . . . FolloAving in the wake of his brothers, Jimmie, Johnny and Jerry, Kevin came to the College in ' 36. A true humourist, he has given the lie to Shakespeare, who branded the pun as the lowest form of wit. Kevin ' s bon mots would fill a book and empty a hall. He hooes to attend U.B.C. next year and work toward an M.D. With his cheerful and philo- sophical outlook on life, he ' should make friends wher- ever he goes. Robert Scarabelli . . . Bob, who came here from Ottawa two years ago, is one of the best players on the hockey squad. He likes Vancouver a lot but regrets there is not outdoor skating. Bob ' s ambition is to be a Hotel Manager; as a start, he works part time running an elevator in Hotel Vancouver. Among the celebrities to whom he has given " lifts " are Fiorello La Guardia, Richard Greene, and John Hart. Cheerful and polite, Bob is a popular member of the Lettermen ' s Club. Leo Carey . . . Leo came west last fall from Win- nipeg, where he attended St. Paul ' s College. His over- exuberant appreciation of puns has earned him the title of " Giggles " . His good-natured glee is contagious. Leo is very interested in Physics and hopes to pursue an engineering career. David Carmichael . . . Dave is one of the most energetic and versatile members of the class and blessed with a most responsive sense of humour. He plays a fine game of football at end, rows with the Vancouver Rowing Club, and is associated Avith sev- eral fraternal organizations. He is fond of long and involved discussions on such harmless subjects as Relativity and Technocracy, and is well informed on the current events with original views on the same. Donald Weeks . . • Don, who has gone to the College since Grade VIII, is what might be called the classicist of our Class. He is the only student taking four languages, French, Latin, Greek and English, in his senior year. Besides this, Don has read widely on Medieval Architecture, and is absorbedly interested in English Cathedrals. He isn ' t quite sure what he wants to be, but we ' re sure he ' ll succeed in whatever he takes up. Kevin Molloy . . . Kevin came from Victoria, where he attended St. Louis College. He has achieved distinction in a short time. Last fall he made the head- lines with his play at the fullback position, and by some short-sighted pressman ' s error was dubbed the mighty midget. (He actually has the build of a Hercules). When the exam results come out, Kevin ' s name is sure to be near the top of the list. Terrence Burns . . . Terry, a student at V.C. in his grammar school days, returned to take Senior. He is a quiet, conscientious fellow with a cheery, happy-go- lucky disposition. He intends to follow his father ' s foot- steps and enter the Civil Service. Harold Gatien . . . Harold, a boarder, hails from Kamloops and is new this year from Campion College, Regina. His two favorite diversions are singing the praises of his home town and proclaiming the superi- ority of the C.N.R. over all other railroad systems. He ' d like to study architecture, but also likes to travel. " Someday, when I ' ve seen the world " , he muses, " I think I ' ll settle down . . . South America, perhaps . . . they say Rio ' s beautiful”. Frank Boyle . . . Has made many friends at the College. He has plenty of fire and energy both in the classroom and on the gridiron. Ambition to be a T.C.A. pilot, for as he theorizes at the slightest provocation, " Aviation is in its infancy and the demand for pilots is going to be increasingly persistent. Besides, flying is interesting " . Bcurke Tepoorten . . . Bourke has been at V. C. since 1933. Two months ago he was called into service with the Dental Corps and is at present in New West- minster. Good-natured and with an eye for the bright side of life, he made a friend of everyone. He has sung in the Glee Club and played end on the football team. His hobby is photography, but his ambition is to be a first-rate dentist, to carry on the Tepoorten tradition. [21 ] Editorial THE COLLEGE The years that lie ahead are diffi- cult ones. Our own leaders in the Dominion warn us that we shall be called upon to make increasingly greater sacrifices. The intrepid Prime Minister of embattled Britain, Mr. Churchill, has not tried to paint the clouds over. To the Empire he has said: " I never promised anything but blood, tears, toil, and sweat, to which I will add our full share of mistakes, shortcomings and disappointments, and also that this may go on for a very long time " . Will our Graduate of this year, of recent years, of the years of the near future, be able to stand up to this trial of courage, this call of sacrifice? The College feels he will. For the College ever motivated by its ideal of a full and Christian education, has always instilled that loyalty, honesty and purity, love of God and of one ' s neighbour are the enduring things of life, that will prevail through raids and bombardments and battles; these are the things that are ever- lastingly right. With a firm grip on these eternal truths the boy, the sol- dier, the statesman, can march into the darkest future unafraid. Man doesn ' t live by bread alone, nor does he fight with guns alone. His spirit must be steeled and armoured with the certainty of the righteousness of his cause. And then he shall be thrice armed, for his cause is just. And therein lies the glory and the worth of a Christian education, that it implants in the mind not only knowledge of the physical universe, but also truths that will sustain him in the dark hour. And holding to these in the task of living and the conflict now upon us, let it rage, let it roar, we shall win through. THE HONOUR PIN The V.C. honour pin is awarded at the e nd of each school year as a mark of honour to those who most truly possess the spirit of Vancouver College. That spirit is best exempli- fied by enthusiastic co-operation in the various activities, participation in sport, close application to studies and by good manners and good conduct at all times. Before a Boy Is Eligible for the V. C. Honour Pin: 1. He must be in attendance at the school for more than one year, unless he is a Senior Matriculant. 2. He must have the approval of the Principal, his teachers, his own classmates and the V. C. Students ' Council. 3. In studies he must have ranked no lower than half way if he is a grammar grade student; no lower than three-quarters way down if a high school student; and he must have passed in all subjects if a matriculant. 4. He must show keen interest in the life of the school by active participation in the various activ- ities, including at least one activ- ity or sport in each term of the school year. 5. He must, by his observance of the school rules, and by his ready compliance with recommenda- tions, indicate that he is really sincere in his effort to become a credit to his home, his school and his Church.

[ 28 ] CADET TRAINING Means Preparedness . . . Develops Leadership [ 29 ] BARRY MORGAN-DEAN FIRST VANCOUVER WAR CASUALTY SEMON TATER MISSING AFTER NORTH SEA BATTLE Ex-V.C. R.A.F. Casualties Barry Morgan-Dean is an ex-pupil of V.C., attending the College in the late twenties. He is the son of Mrs. G. Morgan-Dean of 3334 West 39th St. A Flying Officer in the R.A.F., he was lost during the furious fighting that preceded Dunkerque. Barry was a very genial fellow and a good athlete too. He was very conscientious in the performance of religious duties, practicing to the last his devoion to the Nine First Fridays. He wrote several vivid letters home describing the battle the R.A.F. pilots were putting up against great German odds. Some of them were published in the Vancouver Dailies. ★ Semon Tater attended the College as a boarder from Courtenay and matriculated in 1937. He entered U.B.C., leaving in 1939 to fly with the R.A.F. At the time he was re- ported missing in aerial combat over the North Sea, Semon held the rank of Pilot Officer. His brother, Bill, a former V.C. student also, is serving in an anti-tank unit of the first Canadian Division. Semon was a hard-working student with ardent ambition to get ahead. He was only 16 when he obtained his Junior Matriculation. A winning smile and fine sense of humour made him a favourite among his companions. His good judgment and behaviour invited trust and this trust he carried into the sky as one of " the angels of Britain " , an honour and a responsibility remarkable for one so young. For Semon was only 19 when he was shot down. ★ His Majesty the King sent the subjoined letter of sympathy shortly after Barry was officially reported among the missing. [ 30 ] V.C. CADET CORPS AT EMPIRE YOUTH RALLY INSET: MAJOR BURLEY Cadet Corps Instils Discipline and Team-Work April 6, 1940, the College organ- ized its Cadet Corps at the request of the Minister of National Defense. In was the second school in the City to answer his appeal. Thus V.C. got in step with the Government ' s war - time prepared- ness drive. Under Major Norman Burley of the Seaforths, a graduate of the Royal Canadian Military College, the College Cadets were given courses in drill, signalling, first aid, field work, and the use of the rifle. The Corps, originally numbering 60 Cadets in its ranks, now has an enlistment of a hundred. Command- ing Cadet Officer is Cadet Major Bill O ' Neil. Other officers are: Quarter- master Sergeant Denham Kelsey, Cadet Captain Bill Walker, Sergeant Major Bill Clayton, Lieutenants Allan Burbank, Dave Underhill, Bob Rob- bins. The N.C.O. ' s are: Cadet Ser- geants Don McNair, Dennis Dono- van, Andy Thoresen, Ed Snyder and Don Durno. On May 8, Major W. R. Critchley reviewed the College Corps in the annual Inspection. He had high praise to give. He said there had been a tremendous improvement made since last year ' s inspection and complimented the team work and co-operation between officers and men. The First Aid Unit was singled out for especial commenda- tion for a flawless demonstration. It [ 31 ] “ SHUN” CADET CORPS DRAWN UP BEFORE SIR ROBERT CLIVE was a fitting and well-merited encom- ium, crowning a year of hard Cadet training. Ask the College Cadet what was his big thrill of the year and he will answer, " The Empire Youth Rally on May 11”. Marching number two in the great Cadet parade by reason of its seniority, the College Corps was a magnificent sight. Dressed in white flannels and shirts, wearing the school tie and a dark blue forage cap, the three platoons from the Col- lege were a picture of smartness and precision. There was an honest pride in the way they held their heads, a youthful vigour in their step. We were proud of them that day. Brother Reilly has carried a large share of the Cadet training, handling practice drills and supervising out- side periods in rifle work and signal- ling, Brother Walsh gave the Corps its course in Swedish Drill and Gym- nastics. It has been written that the great battles of England were won on the cricket feilds. Today in this trial of Empire by battle, our battles are be- " EYES RIGHT " LT. -COL.

For here Canadian youth are receiving vital training that will enable them to take their place im- mediately in the Canadian forces when that time comes, find who can tell but that the boys of today will be the victors of tomorrow. Even outside its role in a National emergency, the Cadet Corps has its worth. It instils a sense of order, fi boy realizes, perhaps for the first time, what discipline and promptness in obeying means for the smooth running of an organization. Working closely with his companions in rifle competitions, in platoon ceremon- ial, he develops a sense of loyalty and earnest endeavour, find always it teaches the Cadet the Empire is a vibrant, living thing, with ideals and privileges that millions have respect- ed and defended, even as he must, find so, whether the Cadet ever serves in the nation ' s forces, his train- ing has not been in vain; he has learned lessons and acquired atti- tudes that will be a source of strength in the more personal battle that is life. [ 33 ] PYRAMIDS Gymnastics Develop Physical Skills Lithe, young bodies hying over horses, turning somersaults, and bouncing like India-rubber balls on the gym-mats have been a familiar sight in College entertainment spec- tacles. Since the school first open- ed, gymnastics have been part of the curriculum, for the College recog- nizes that the body as well as the mind lies within its scope of educa- tional activity. Barbells, Swedish drill, dumb-bells, bolas, pyramids gym exercises with horse and paral- lel bars form the course in physical training given by the Brothers of the staff: Brothers Walsh and Ryan handled the gym and maze march- ing; Brother Pilon, the barbells; Brother Maloney, the dumb-bells; Brother Reilly, the sceptre swinging. This year the Annual Entertain- ment featured gymnastics as in the past. Other activities such as orches- tra, drama, singing and verse-speak- ing choirs have been spotlighted. The last Gymnastic Carnival was held in the Auditorium and was listed in the official programme as part of the vast schedule of enter- tainment provided in connection with Vancouver ' s Jubilee celebrations of 1936. This year ' s gym display, en- titled " Cadets On Parade " , was also held in the Auditorium with a large and enthusiastic audience. An in- teresting item on the programme was the presentation of p r iz e s and awards by His Excellency Arch- bishop Duke, a ceremony that fur- nished a fitting climax to a year of hard work on the part of outstand- ing students, College actors, Cadets, and school teams. [34] ORCHESTRA Top Row — Mr. De Ridder, D. McNair, M. Schell, S. DuMont, D. Underhill. Third Row — M. Belknap, A. Levy, J. Lazzarin, P. Legree, G. Peter, H. Sanders. Second Row — W. Bowdridge, J.

College Orchestra Has Master Teacher The College Orchestra begins with a tradition already made. It has the difficult task of living up to a tradition, instead of growing up with one. For with so distinguished an instructor and composer as Mr. de Ridder, the students in the orchestra feel they must always play well and very well. Mr. Allard de Ridder was born in Holland and studied in various parts of Europe. He has brought with him to America a rich heritage and train- ing in music, so that he was well qualified, when he came here in 1930, to revive the Vancouver Sym- phony, and raise it to a leading posi- tion among North American sym- phonic orchestras. Among his com- positions are four Symphonic Poems produced by the Los Angeles Phil- harmonic, Violin Concerto, Sym- phonic Intermezzo. In taking over the direction of the College orchestra he has shown as much enthusiasm and interest as if it were a great philharmonic group. He is especially appreciated by beginners because his kindness and patience makes smooth the tedious early stages in the learning of an instrument. In the orchestra proper there are twenty-six pieces. Others are in training, so to speak, under the priv- ate tuition of Mr. de Ridder. These, numbering in all about thirty, will be admitted to the orchestra when they are sufficiently proficient in their in- struments. Assisting in the supervision of practice periods and organizing the classes in music is Brother Treacy. [ 35 ] College Drama Gives Another Outlet for Latent Talent DRAMATIC CLUB Hack Row— John Xieudorp, Mack Schell, Hr. D. L. Phillips, Art Walker, John Burns. Front Row — Tom Egan, Oliver Salvador, Jack Gleason. This year ' s drama at the College is a saga of one play — " Dust of the Road " . A revival of two Christmases ago, it was built up with a new cast and the artful direction of Brother Phillips into an outstanding produc- tion that won two trophies in festival competitions and drew from adjudi- cators well-merited praise. The V.C. Players received their fi ' st award in the C.Y.O. Drama Fes- tival, a cup for the best-directed play. In the open division of the G. V. Y. P. U. Festival, " Dust of the Road " was adjudged the best drama and pre- sented with the beautiful Safeway trophy. Encouraged by the boys ' [ 36 ] excellent performances, Brother Phil- lips entered his Thespians in the Senior division of the Vancouver Drama Festival in competition with the best amateur drama groups in the city. The outcome justified this ambitious step. For unofficially the College ranked third and gained high commendation for costuming, staging and acting. John Nieudorp, who has been act- ing feminine parts in B. C. plays since 1938, turned in a superb inter- pretation of his role of Prudence Steele. Without exception, every adjudicator gave him unstinting praise. In the words of -the Herald, ' l " he stole the show " every time. Oliver Salvador, enacting the diffi- cult role of the tramp, received hon- ourable mention in three festivals, when the Best Actor Awards were announced. Tom Egan, another vet- eran in College dramas, performed ably in the minor part of the old man. John Burns made an emergency en- trance into the cast late in the year, and despite the quick grooming he received for his role of Peter Steele, a vital character in the play, he acquitted himself with distinction. O. Henry ' s famous " Ransom of the Red Chief”, adapted for the stage, was the Players ' second presenta- tion. In its only festival perform- ance, in the Vancouver Drama Fes- tival, Junior Division, the play earned high praise. Jack Gleason, playing the mischievous, young sprite, Red Chief, received honourable mention among the Junior actors. Mack Schell, in his first time on the stage, sustained well his role of the much- abused Bill Driscoll. Tom Egan gave a masterly portrayal of the smooih, bouttoniered crook.

Findlater.L.T.C.L., A.T.C.M., A.T.S.C., whose reputation for fine choral craftsmanship has been confirmed time and again by festival awards, has been training the College choir of forty voices, assisted by his talented daughter. Mr. Findlater replaces Mr. Robert Dornan, whose verse-speaking choirs were a pleasurable experience. Mr. Dornan was called into service in the Intelligence Department. In this year ' s entertainment the choir sang without the solid, har- monizing background of the Glee Club. Owing to Cadet Drill, P.T., and the pressure of examination sub- jects that organization has not been able to function this year. But the Junior Choir of forty voices covered itself with honour, none the less. Their selections were popular not only because of inate tunefulness in them, but because of the sweetness and clearness of tone with which they were rendered. The pieces given at the entertainment, " Cadets on Parade " , were: " Dear Land of Home " , " Music " , " Pilgrim ' s Song " , " The King ' s Still in London " . [ 38 ] A Boarder’s Life is a Happy One The gathering of Boarders at the College is assuming the aspect of an International Club, what with stud- ents from Japan, South America, United States, Hawaiian Islands, and England. But the majority of the resident students are from B.C., hail- ing from such places as Nelson, Kamloops, Kelowna, Bridesville, Rossland, New Westminster, Vic- toria, Reed Island, Campbell River, Prince Rupert, Wells, Lytton, Cran- brook; in Alberta, Coleman; and in Saskatchewan, Regina. But one and all seem to find Vancouver a pleas- ant city. There are seventy-two boarders, twenty-one being Juniors under the direction of Brother Pilon; the Seniors are under the direction of Brother Cunningham.

Reynolds, Wright, Horsman, Barrie, Ivatt, McCarry are some of the stars who in the past have raced to glory on the gridiron and built up an enduring reputation for fine foot- ball at the College. And this year the sport took on a wider scope when the school embarked on international competition with teams from Wash- ington State, thereby becoming, to the best of the Editor ' s knowledge, the only Canadian school to carry on extensively the good neighbour policy in the field of sport. To prepare the team for the stren- uous schedule, Brother Walsh secur- ed the services of Joe Budnick, a high school coach and former grid player well known in Northwest athletic circles. Joe gave the squad its initial coaching at the College camp on Vancouver Island, and this along with the subsequent training on the College gridiron had the players in excellent trim when they threw their newly acquired skill and Rockne formations against Blaine High, un- defeated in over twenty games. Of [ 42 ] ACTION SHOT OF FOOTBALL TEAM this game and others you will read elsewhere, but in passing we pay tribute to the Collegians of 1940 who, win or lose, maintained the high standard of sportsmanship set in previous years. So hail to the squad of ' 40, who not only inaugurated a new sport era at the College but also added a bright page to an already high tradition of fair play and good sportsmanship. The team ' s great effort was inspir- ed in large part by the loyal support of the Fathers ' Club. The Fathers ' enthusiastic approval and aid was so prompt and sincere that the play- ers felt they had to play hard or they were letting some very fine friends down. When Doug. McLaughlin streaked 70 yards for the winning touchdown against Blaine and grin- ned, ' That ' s one for the Fathers " , he was expressing the sentiments of all his grateful team-mates. And to the sport scribes whose enthusiasm glamourized our victories and whose wit smoothed over our defeats, many thanks. Pat Slattery and Ray Gardiner of the Sun, Stu Keate and Jim Coleman of the Prov- ince, Bill Dunford and Hal Pawsons of the Herald, were all for our Cana- dian boys, who were up against American teams, often much heavier and always more experienced. Per- haps the finest summary of the sea- son is the one Stu Keate wrote in his column, Sport Shots: TAKE A BOW, KIDS . . Stu Keate " The first really successful Amer- ican football season this city has ever known went into the False Creek mists at Athletic Park last night. The Vancouver College kids hung up their purple and gold uni- forms after four months of rugged toil and called it quits for the year. " The fact that the Shaughnessy Irish lost their last two games should not make them disappointed. On the whole, they have come through very well for a first-year club, with a [ 43 ] win average of a little less than .500. " True, they made mistakes, fill new ventures do. They played 10 games, about two too many for a prep school club. In a couple of in- stances they were badly over- matched. " But their achievements far out- weighed their failures. " They " sold " American football to Vancouver sport fans in a year when the good-neighbor policy — even on this limited basis — is of paramount importance. They drew 2,000 and more to their games. " They built up a neat little club from raw material and laid an excel- lent foundation for the future. " They put on a good show. They had hustle and drive. " They had music and yells. They had a boosters ' organization made up of sport-loving fathers. " They played the game without squawking. In their worst defeats, they kept trying. " So I salute you, College boys. May every success attend your ef- forts next year. " THE 1940 FOOTBALL SEASON A Game by Game Description. • Sept. 25 — Blaine High at Blaine. The Peace Arch celebration game. The V. C. defense is rugged, but its offense is ragged. Green to the rules, the Collegians are penalized a total of 75 yards. Still they outplayed the Americans, making five first downs to three, and 172 yards to Blaine ' s 38 yards. Murphy stars as ball- carrier for Irish. Willason runs back punt 35 yards for Blaine ' s score. • Blaine 6; Vancouver College 0. • Oct. 5 — Mount Baker at Athletic Park. The College makes its home-town debut. The greatest weakness throughout all the season shows it- self for first time as Mount Baker ' s aerial attack functions perfectly against an inept, flat-footed defense. Robbins intercepts a pass and lum- bers for sixty yards. P.S. Bob was pulled down on Baker ' s 30-yard stripe. • Mount Baker 14; Vancouver College 0. 9 Oct. 14 — Edmonds at Athletic Park. 1,100 fans go delirious when Col- legians in a glorious second quarter 144 j turn loose a " blitz " via land and air on the invaders. Molloy with a Panzer division out in front blocking jogs 30 yards to score the College ' s first touchdown of the season. The scoring parade continues when Mur- phy intercepts a pass and three plays later plunges over the goal-line. Mc- Laughlin, playing for the first time in the season, snuggles a pass from Murphy and scores. Later Doug, went off for two jaunts of over 50 yards each. Edmonds takes to the air and tallies twice against the slow-footed Irish pass-defense. • Vancouver College 20; Edmonds 12. © Oct. 19 — St. Martin ' s. Lacey, at Athletic Park. The Irish push St. Martin ' s all over the gridiron but fail to cross the goal- line. Deck Bayley for the first time fulfils his promise as a running back. Deck, McLaughlin and Murphy three times lead a long drive to within ten yards of a score. Quarterbacking poor in vital areas. Saints in dying moments start passing and almost hang a defeat around the collective necks of the Collegians. Groan! That thrilling Irish drive in fourth quarter that died on the one-yard stripe. • Vancouver College 0; St. Martin ' s 0. • Oct. 25 — Custer High at Athletic Park. Half-time found College leading 7-6 on the strength of Deck Bayley ' s first quarter score. In the fourth quarter the fireworks went off. Doug. McLaughlin climaxed a long Irish drive by going over from the 1 0 yard stripe. Custer took to the air and was finally halted on the College twenty, DOUG. MCLAUGHLIN from which spot McLaughlin went eighty yards on the first play. A thirty yard pass accounted for Cus- ter ' s last tally. Over a thousand fans attended. Thrill: Doug ' s sprint downfield. Laugh: Martin Clarke puffing his way to the ten on an end-around. Chill: Custer ' s last stand with Par- rish passing with a sure eye. © Vancouver College 20; Custer High 13. • Nov. 2 — Bellingham High " B " at Athletic Park. Teams battled in heavy rains, coming up occasionally to breathe, but Irish backs, Molloy, Bayley and McLaughlin waded downfield in two successful drives; Deck and Doug, gave the coup de grace in each in- stance. In last quarter Bellingham found some footing and powered way to a touchdown. 700 loyal V.C. rooters shivered through the contest as the lights popped one by one. " Semper Fidelis " . Thank you. • Vancouver College 12; Bellingham 6. [ 45 ] FOOTBALL BANQUET i j ir f: ' £ If 1 J |f j f 1 • • if ? ■ • f I • Nov. 8 — Blcrine High at Athletic Park. Up to the last three minutes Blaine seemed due to repeat her previous 6-0 triumph. Then Doug. McLaughlin, running like a frightened rabbit, went 54 yards to score standing up while 600 wildly cheering fans hug- ged and slapped one another. The tensest moment came on the try for the point after the touchdown, but the College line fulfilled its task nobly, opening a gaping hole through which burly fullback Molloy powered his way to the winning point. Again it was passing that gave Blaine its score, revealing the Irish weakness against air attack. • Vancouver College 7; Blaine 6. • Nov. 11 — O ' Dea High, Seattle, at Athletic Park. Before 2,000 Arm istice Day fans the two Brothers ' schools put on a grand display of football. American power and experience finally broke down the Irish resistance late in the third quarter. Doug. McLaughlin turned in another of his cross-country jaunts when he ballet - danced through the O ' Dea team to the goal- line 54 yards away. Play-mate Mol- loy ploughed his way to the convert. Passing was the Americans ' major offensive weapon in their last, de- cisive drives. The game ended with Murphy unleashing an accurate passing attack, but too late. • O ' Dea High 19; Vancouver College 7. [ 46 ] TOP TABLE (LEFT TO RIGHT) B. Haugh, N. Burley, L. Nicholsen, W. Fisher, B. Morris, R. Underhill, Br. Walsh, J. Budnick, Br. Cunningham, W. Murphy, S. Keate, J. Gilmore, P. Slattery, E. Martin. • Nov. 16 — Ferndale High at Athletic Park. Bruised and tired from the O ' Dea encounter the Irish ran smack up against a football behemoth. Fern- dale drove relentlessly, using sheer power. During the entire first quar- ter the Americans held the ball, scor- ing just before the whistle, as the .nc Collegian line put up a furious de- fence against this new, pulverizing style of play. On one of. the few occasions the Irish had the ball in their possession they engineered a touchdown march with Murphy pass- ing to Klett and McLaughlin, and finally plunging to a score himself. Joe Budnick then yanked ' his first team and the massacre began. In Memoriam.: Ferndale ' s great passing back, Louis Burgler died three months ago. R.I.P. • Ferndale 60; Vancouver College 6. • Nov. 20 — Lakeside High, Seattle, at Athletic Park. The season ends on the note it be- gan. A wobbly pass gets over head of flat-footed College back — an old story throughout the season — and Lakeside scores. Irish power drive stalls after official blocks ' Bob Rob- bins en route to goal-line. The line plays brilliant ball but McLaughlin on the side-lines with injured leg is missed much. Quarterbacking some- what shoddy, too. 9 Lakeside 6; Vancouver College 0. [ 47 ] INTERMEDIATE BASKETBALL TEAM (LEFT TO RIGHT) Top Row — K. Molloy, R. Scarabelli, V. Murphy, S. Klett, Y. James. Bottom — R. Koe, A. Burbank, H. Malone. H. Sanders. Intermediate Basketball " The footballers ' hoop squad " the fans called the College Intermedi- ates. The team was coached by Brother Reilly, Football Director, and over half the personnel consisted of grid players — S. Klett, W. Murph y, K. Molloy, R. Scarabelli, W. James. These carried their fighting spirit from the gridiron onto the court and finished the season in a gallant bid for championship honours. It took Holy Rosary two overtime periods to gain a 28-27 triumph over the In- termediates in the C.Y.O. finals. Team captain Bob Scarabelli play- ed a fine game at centre, being a demon under the basket. Subby Klett turned in a masterly lob as play-maker, working hand in hand with Hal Malone, who led in scoring. The team started slowly, losing most of its early games, but spurted in the last half of the season to reach second place and turn in a season record of nine victories in fifteen games. Intermediates: R. Scarabelli (Capt.), W. Murphy, H. Malone, forwards; W. James, P. O ' Brien, K. Molloy, H. Sanders, guards. [ 48 ] JUNIOR BASKETBALL TEAM Bud Higbic, Larry Rice Tom McNary, Raymond Ruocco, Wayne McIntyre, Eddie Ryan, Herb Capozzi, Br. T. P. Tracey College Basketball Juniors Three basketball titles perched on the College banners this season, find the Juniors, following in the win- ning traditions of the Junior teams of recent years, won two of them. Paced by high-scorer Eddie Ryan, and Buddy Higbie, stellar guard, the College hoopsters swept over Dun- bar, Shaughnessy, and Ryerson, to gain the city title. Next was Sardis, snowed under 36-11, and the Juniors had the Mainland Championship. In the Provincial semi-finals, how- ever, the Irish victory parade came to an abrupt halt at the hands of St. Louis ' College, Victoria. This school, incidentally, is also under the Irish Christian Brothers. Undaunted, the Irish squad re- turned home to take the Catholic Junior city title, making it the fourth Teams Win Titles such championship in six years and leaving them undisputed Junior city champions. The tensest game of the season was the city final with Ryerson when Eddie Ryan in the last second of play took a pass from Herb Capozzi to score and give the College a 21-20 win. Never a high score team, re- maining rather a balanced offensive- defensive squad, the greatest scoring spree came in its 47-20 victory over Rosary. Br. Treacy coached the Juniors. He says the e is a difficult task ahead of rebuilding another team, for only one, Tommy McNary, of the championship squad, is eligible for Junior play next season. Championship Junior Squad: L. Rice, T. McNary, R. Ruocco, H. Capozzi, forwards; B. Higbie, Eddie Ryan (Capt.), W. McIntyre, guards. [ 49 ] BANTAM BASKETBALL TEAM Leo Mulhern, Brian Mulhern, Maurice Mulhern, Ronnie Rice, Gerald Tompkins, John Lazzarin, Bob Murphy. Br. J. M. Maloney, coach. Bantam Basketball The Bantams got off on the right foot in the basketball world by an- nexing a title early in their hooping careers. There were times in the season when the team looked like a family affair with the Mulhern brothers, Leo, Brian and Maurice on the floor. But is was Bob Murphy who was the season ' s hero. His steady hand scored ten points in the decisive game with Rosary to give the Bantams a 22-21 victory and the College its third basketball title of the year. The youngest College basketball- ers rounded off the season with a record of eleven wins in twelve games. Brother Maloney, who handles the Bantams, says the bas- ketball future looks bright for the College. We ' re wat ching, Bantams. Bantams R. Rice (Capt.), J. Lazzarin, J. Tomp- kins, L.

Murphy, G. Miller, W. James. Hockey Makes Its Debut Continuing its policy of having as many sports as possible in order to give each student an outlet for his specific athletic talent, the College took up hockey last season and en- tered a team in the Vancouver Juven- ile League. Most of the players were boarders from the Interior and Al- berta who had gleaned their knowl- edge of Canada ' s winter sport in such centres as Cranbrook, Nelson, Coleman and Regina. In its first games the College squad fared badly until it had de- veloped into a smooth working unit, but once team-work had been estab- lished the Collegians became a formidable opponent on the ice. Though eventually ending in last place, they displayed in the closing encounters of the season an amazing improvement. In the final game, an exhibition match with New West- minster, they went on a scoring splurge to gain an overwhelming 10-2 victory. Brother Ryan managed the squad, maintaining team morale with his bon mots and encouragement, even in the dark moments of some of those early season contests. Johnny Clarke coached the Collegians, initiating them into the mysteries of hockey strategy and team-work. Top scorers were " Slam " Salvador with nine points, and Leo McKinnon with five. The best individual per- formance, however, was that of Bud Murphy in the nets, who was ac- claimed the best goalie in the Leagu e. Of all the players it could be said that they played hard, spirit- ed hockey, setting an example of courage and endeavour that will serve as inspiration for the College squads of the years to come. First Summer Camp Is Enjoyable " There is no such thing as a bad boy " , is the firm conviction of Father Flanagan, well-known founder of Boys ' Town, Nebraska. Lack of op- portunity, the opportunity to work and to play, turns the boy into the criminal. And had anyone visited the Vancouver College Camp at Parksville on the Island during the last two weeks of August, he would have seen, as I who was the Camp chaplain, had ample opportunity to see, sixty boys from the age of ten to eighteen enjoying the opportunity to play, to live in the real outdoors for a pleasant, profitable fortnight. Among the pastimes of the busy days was swimming in either fresh or salt water. A quarter mile beach was most enjoyable, but the " ole swimmin ' hole " in Englishman ' s River proved the more popular be- cause of a thrilling trapeze contrap- tion that enabled daring young men REV. B. QUINN. O.M.I. CAMP CHAPLAIN to fly through the air with the great- est of ease. SUMMER CAMP SCENE [ 52 ] Camp Story The highlights of the holidays, however, were the camp-fires at which everyone congenially co-oper- ated in offering songs and skits. Some of the performances were good, some were better, and all were unique to be sure. Brother Walsh, Principal of the College and Camp Supervisor, ex- celled himself as host and surpassed the most eager anticipations of his young charges in providing every commo dity and opportunity to enjoy themselves. Each morning Mass was cele- brated and a short talk given that the development and exercise of the body might be supplemented by that of mind and character. For a boy is a complex being, even as you or I, of body and of soul, and a lop-sided development of his nature must be avoided. The old, old Aristotlelian adage states the matter succinctly: i-i nealthy mind in a healthy body, i ' ne ideal education, that. That phrase is indeed well-worn but it is, because none other expresses a basic fact so truly and clearly. So the first annual College Camp was successful from every point of view. It is hoped that the College will make like provision for a vaca- tion for the boys in 1941, and parents might take note that here is a Camp most suitable in every respect, with association of good companions, with the Brothers as responsible guardians and with all outdoor pas- times of all kinds to entertain them and build strong bodies. Badminton Has Good Season In the 1941 season, badminton, in- troduced on the College sport pro- gramme last year by Brother Ryan, demonstrated its growth and popu- larity with a membership of over seventy students in the three League divisions, organized on the basis of playing experience. The playoffs in late March fur- nished some interesting upsets. Dick Danis, who had led the Intermediate Division throughout the season, went down in the crucial finals before Paul Legree. John Lazzarin, leader of the Senior B Division for most of the schedule, dropped the title to Hughie Eurbank. The Burbanks turned in a brother act as brother Allan swept the Senior A championship. Diminu- tive, gleeful Gleason of Grade X and " Ransom of Red Chief " fame, took the Junior title, triumphing over Bill McGavin in the finals. [ 53 ] Vancouver College ‘Grads’ Rev. Brother M. J. Lannon came hack after seven years to the school lie founded and was so overcome with emotion that he found it diffi- cult to put his feelings into words, he told an audience of nearly 500 students, graduates and friends of Vancouver College in gaily bedecked McCormack Hall at the second an- nual Founders’ Day ceremonies. The Brother, who was principal of the school for nine years and is now principal of O’Dea High School in Seattle, said that a school which emphasized Christian values and taught its students how to conduct themselves in after life had nothing to fear in the future. LINE OF DEFENSE He declared that every Christian school is a line of defense against the godless men who are attempting to wrest world power from right- thinking people today, and that Catholicism incorporates national- ism when it teaches its youth to fight for their ideals. Louis Grant, member of the second graduating class in 1926, was- chairman. The dinner program in- cluded addresses by Most Rev. John Cody, bishop of ictoria ; Rev. Brother E. B. Walsh, present prin- 154 ] Pay Tribute to Founders cipal of the school ; C. F. Stafford, one of the three living founders, and prominent graduates. Bishop Cody called the abandon- ment of Christ the first cause of the war, and said that civilization must be led to admit the world still be- longs to Christianity instead of seeking to banish God from his own creation. GRADUATES’ SACRIFICE Brother Walsh, giving his report on school activities, paid tribute to the newly-formed “Fathers’ Club.” He said that a new commercial course has been added to the cur- riculum and congratulated the college’s drama group, which car- ried off second honors in the Catholic Youth Organizations’ drama festival. Rev. Peter McGuire, a graduate of 1931, recalled old schooldays, and John G. Power, a graduate of 1935, asked old boys to give a passing- thought to two old students of the school who have given their lives already in this war. Pilot Officer Barry Morgan-Dean, believed killed in action with the f . F., and Pilot Officer Semon Tater, killed in action at Dunkirk, were the graduates who died in service. [ 55 ] From the Alumni Front These are but fragmentary notes by your Alumni reporter.
